Hello TorpedoesNation,


Annual Membership Meeting and Team Picture Night

                Tonight at 6pm, we will have our annual membership meeting.  A big part of the evening will be to elect our new board, that governs the team for the next year.  Other aspects are to discuss upcoming changes within our team, and get a start to the new swim season. 

To clarify, the senior group will practice as normal, but there will not be any age group (colors and metal groups) swim practice tonight (lessons will occur as normal).  Instead, we will have Pettit Photography at the pool to take our team picture, as well as group and individual pictures, a copy of the form is attached, with actual order forms available at the pool.  Kids will receive their team T-shirt to use for the picture, and keep it as their own.

Picture forms will be outside the locker rooms.  If ordering team pictures, please specify “Whole Team” or “Color/Metal Group” for the team picture. 


Making Waves Swim Shop         

                                Making Waves will be coming to the VCAC on Sat 29th from 8am-12pm.  They will have team suits, warmups and many other items.  They will also be present at our larger home swim meets.  They offer significant discounts to team members, and are currently working on a team website to buy any number of items through.

Halloween Splash

                Our first home meet of the season.  The meet will last 3 days, though new/younger swimmers will only compete on Sat and Sun.  Parents are expected to help work the meet, so please mark off the weekend on your calendars (friends and families are welcome too).

October Lessons

                Our next round of lessons begin NEXT WEEK on October 1st/2nd.  If you have friends or younger siblings looking to learn to swim, registration is now open, and will be until the weekend before.

Sponsorship Relay

                The THT Board and Coaches have been talking about a fun new opportunity to sponsor our team and raise money for scholarships and towards improving the pool.  Stay tuned for more details, and senior and masters night owls and early birds, be ready to have some over night fun!
