High School Prep at Pike Creek on Thursday has been cancelled.  Swimmers may utilize the High School Prep practices at PS DuPont, from 5:00-6:30, or at New Castle, from 6:00-7:30.
 
On Saturday morning, Age Group and Developmental will both have practice at UD from 8:00-10:00 to do a meet walk-through and work on starts off of the starting blocks.  Evening practices at New Castle will be cancelled to encourage swimmers to attend the walk-through.  Morning practices at New Castle will all remain the same.
 
Next week, evening practices at New Castle on Saturday,  October 13th, will be cancelled due to the team picnic.
 
 
OCTOBER MEET ENTRIES
 
Entries for all October meets are finalized and have been sent to Middle Atlantic for review.
 
PDFs of final entries submitted to Middle Atlantic will be available shortly to check for errors.  These will be available on each meet's webpage.
 
 
BANANA BOAT & PUMPKIN PATCH VOLUNTEER POSITIONS
 
Volunteer positions for both the Banana Boat and Pumpkin Patch meets will open on Wednesday, October 10, at 9:00 PM.  To give everyone a chance to claim a volunteer position for these first meets, these meets will only allow one volunteer position per account per session.
 
 
TEAM PICNIC
 
The team picnic is next weekend, on Saturday the 13th, from 1:00-3:30 PM at Paper Mill Park, at the intersection of Paper Mill Road & Polly Drummond Road.  You can sign up for the picnic here.  Please use the Notes section to let us know the total number of family members attending, and/or if someone has a dietary restriction (vegetarian, kosher, poultry-only, etc).
 
The swim team will provide the hamburgers, hot dogs, drinks, and a couple side dishes.  Families attending the picnic should bring something along as well.  Families with last names from A-M should bring a side dish.  Families with last names from N-Z should bring a dessert.
 
All families that paid the DST Booster fee for their National or Traditional Program swimmer(s) are welcome.  KYFW Program-only families may attend at $5 per person.
 
Saturday evening practices at New Castle will be cancelled in order to allow coaches and swimmers to enjoy themselves at the picnic.

The Parents’ Meeting was held this past Friday at Pike Creek. Thank you to everyone who attended, and thank you to everyone who watched online at Delaware Swim Team’s Facebook page
 
Our printout from the meeting is available here, if you did not have a chance to attend the meeting. The printout will supplement the emails over the past month and explain things in even more detail for anyone who needs it.

We are waiting on Speedo for a couple things to have the online team store ready to go.  We will send out an email once that is taken care of and orders can be accepted.  Thank you for your patience so far!
