Mantas Families,

Today is the day!  We start our 2018-2019 short course season. I am very excited to get the team back in the water!  Each week I will send out an update on practice times and locations, as well as any other information.  This may include meet registrations, parent meetings, and team functions.  The general, TENTATIVE, practice calendar can be found on the team webpage, www.mantasswimclub.com, by clicking on the CALENDAR tab.  Then pull down the menu to the correct training group for your swimmer(s).  As I mentioned, the online calendar is tentative and can be changed so it’s a good idea to check it often and watch for the weekly emails.  

Let’s get started! Our newest swimmers need to make sure they have a suit they are comfortable in and a pair of goggles. The club will provide the swim cap. Please have swimmers ready to be in the water at the appropriate times so practice can get started right away.  Practice times vary depending on our location. Parents are welcome to watch our practices.  We have bleachers on the pool deck at Gustavus and a full bleacher area at Mankato East.  

Here is our practice schedule for this week.
