 Pumpkin Plunge Fundraiser  

 

Help support your favorite swimmer during Poseidon’s Annual Pumpkin Plunge Fundraiser.  It's a great opportunity to bring family and friends together for some fun while supporting our team.

 

Our fundraiser is similar to ones used by swim teams all over the United States to raise money for their respective team.  To raise money, swimmers receive donations from family members, friends, neighbors, and local businesses.

 

You will be receiving a direct email with instructions for donations – contact Kelli if you have any questions.

 

Yankee Candle Fundraiser Coming – October 22nd

 

            Yankee Candle Fundraiser will run from October 22nd – November 2nd.   Packets and information coming home with swimmers next week.

 

Equipment Bags:

           

If you are a RACER, Challenger, Regional, or Senior swimmer you should have an individual equipment bag that you keep at the pool for your use.  We have a large number of swimmers that are in these groups that do not have their own equipment. 

 

If you have any questions – please email or talk to Audra.   

 

Poseidon Board Meeting, Tuesday November 6th in the game room at Thorbeckes – 6 PM.       

 

NUTRITION:  After heredity and training, nutrition plays the largest role in the quality of a swimmer's performance.  HYDRATE, HYDRATE, HYDRATE!!!

Every swimmer should have a water bottle at the end of their training lane.  Swimmers sweat during their workouts; the same amount of dehydration occurs during a swim workout as does a person doing a “dry” workout.  REMEMBER your water bottle every day.  It is just as important as your cap, suit, and goggles.  You wouldn’t come to swim practice without one of them – don’t come without your water bottle. 

THOUGHT OF THE MONTH:
