Our Thanksgiving practice schedule is in effect across all four locations.  Please make sure to refer to the Thanksgiving Practice Schedule to see when your swimmer's group has practices each day.
 
Looking forward, there may be practice changes Thursday, November 29, to Sunday, December 2, due to the Gator Classic meet.  Practice changes will be sent out by next Wednesday.
 
 
VOLUNTEER POINTS
 
Volunteer service points for the First State Cup and First State Mini Cup will be entered into everyone's accounts in the next week.
 
 
GATOR CLASSIC
 
 
The Gator Classic is November 29-December 2 (Thursday through Sunday).
 
Swimmers in the Thursday distance session are required to provide their own timer and counter.
 
Delaware Swim Team has been assigned 2 timer positions per session, including at finals, for the Gator Classic.  You can sign up for volunteer positions here.
 
SJAC is staging a Purple Out on Saturday, December 1, to raise funds and awareness for cystic fibrosis.  SJAC has partnered with the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia's Cystic Fibrosis Center.  SJAC is taking orders for purple t-shirts here, and is also asking for donations of new, unopened board games for patients.  Additionally, these items will be given to patients: card games (go fish, Uno, regular deck), puzzles, fun socks, hats, markers, crayons, coloring books, Mad Libs, gift cards (so parents can purchase food and snacks downstairs), stickers, pens, pencils, notebooks, crafting kits,balloons (deflated - this helps with lung function, and they blow them up and kick and hit the balloon in their rooms for a little exercise), fun straws, and tissues (hospital tissues are terrible).
 
A more detailed email for the meet will go out next week.
 
 
WINTER STORM MINI MEET
 
 
The Winter Storm Mini Meet is December 8-9.  Families should remember that this is a two-day meet, as opposed to a one-day meet like the mini meets held at UD have been so far.
 
Entries for the Winter Storm Mini Meet are now closed.
 
 
RMSC HOLIDAY INVITATIONAL
 
 
The RMSC Invitational is Thursday, December 13, through Sunday, December 16.
 
Entries for the meet close on Monday, November 26.
 
 
PHILADELPHIA FLYERS SWIMMERS' NIGHT
 
Delaware Swim Team is participating in Swimmers' Night with the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday, January 3.  Swimmers who attend the Philadelphia Flyers game that night receive a Philadelphia Flyers swim cap.
 
The deadline to sign up is December 17, but the earlier we can give the Flyers our numbers, the better chance we can have families sit together.  Details on the event are here.
 
 
 
Thanks,
