EMAC: On-The-Horizon 11/20/18

Hello EMAC Families,

We have a few things to go over in this letter to the team.  First off, let us start by saying how amazing we swam this past weekend at the Fall Invite!  Not only did we have best times being swum through all sessions, but we saw significant time drops in some of those best times!  After this weekend, the coaching staff is even more excited for the upcoming SJAC meet; we hope you are as well!

Holiday Practice Schedule

We are entering the holiday season this week, so once again we want to include the holiday newsletter so everyone is informed about the practice changes going on.  Few quick highlights for this week:

No Practice Thursday November 22nd

Practice time changes for Wednesday, Friday, and an SJAC only practice for age-group on Saturday.   Below is the holiday schedule in full.

Alloy Alliance Meets

The updated information for the Alloy Alliance Meets is now on the site.  We are strongly recommending all of our 12 and unders who are eligible to compete in the Alliance meets to do so.

  • Alloy Alliance Leg 2 is the weekend directly after the SJAC meet.  This is a great opportunity for our 9-12 to take the focus we are going into SJAC with and get additional swims in under that focus.  This is also the first time our 8 and unders have had the opporunity to swim in over a month; to see how far we've progressed and what we still need to work on, we need as many 8 and unders in this meet as possible.  If you plan to attend, please register before Monday November 26
  • Alloy Alliance Leg 3 is hosted by BLUE and is in January.  This is a great meet for our swimmers to compete in before we start the process of entering the championship season.  If your swimmer is still looking for additional opportunities in events before we enter the championship season, this is a great meet for them to attend.

Meet Registrations

The EMAC A/BB/C meet for after the holiday season is on the website and open for registration.  Please register soon, as we will be closing that meet file within the next week.

Lehigh Valley Phantoms Game

We are having a team function at the Lehigh Valley Phantoms on December 28th.  Tickets are $20, and this is a fun way to hang out with your team mates outside of the pool!  Follow the below link for ticket registration, all orders will be billed to your account so no direct payment needs to be made.

Holiday Pointsettia Sale

EMAC is offering a Pointsettia sale for this holiday season.  If you are interested in purchasing one for your home, or know someone who would like to have one themselves, please print out the below attachments and hand them in at the pool over the next week.  These flowers make a great holiday addition to any home!

SJAC is less than two weeks away!  Enjoy the Thanksgiving break, and get ready for an exciting weekend!
