WAC Winter Wipeout
Our entries have been finalized and submitted for our last invitational of 2018, the WAC Winter Wipeout (December 8-9 @ Warren Central HS). Entries are posted at the pool and online for your review. Two items regarding this meet:
· The 11-12 Butterfly event on Saturday will be the 50 Fly, not the 100. This was a mistake in the setup file but will be corrected by the host club at the meet.
· There are relays at this meet, and tentative relay assignments have been posted at the pool. Final relay personnel will be chosen at the meet by the coaches.
This meet will be a great opportunity to see some team spirit on display, with all swimmers competing in the same session – which also lends itself to some friendly timelines. And there will be some strong competition on hand as well, including Zionsville and LST as well as the host team. Get ready for another great weekend of WTSC racing! Please contact a member of the coaching staff if you have questions about this event.
Our final meet of 2018 will be our Snowball Intrasquad (December 13 @ NC). Warmups will be at 5:15pm, with the meet starting at 6pm. As with all hosted meets, all WTSC age group swimmers have been pre-entered. If your swimmer cannot participate, please decline their participation by December 11. This meet will also be the competitive debut of our Riptide swimmers! Riptide swimmers have been pre-entered for this event. Riptide parents, please let Coach Josh know by December 11 if your swimmer cannot participate in the meet. Job signups for this event will be available next week. Please contact a member of the coaching staff if you have questions about this event.
New Team Caps
We have recently received a new shipment of red team caps. As this season goes on, we will be moving to an all red cap scheme for all non-championship meets. Swimmers may continue to wear black caps if they have them – and purchase black caps until they’re gone – as the move towards all red continues. If you need new red caps for the Warren meet and beyond, please speak with a coach at practice (latex = $5 each; silicone = $10 each). All cap charges will be added to your next club invoice.
Our December / January practice schedule has been posted on the club website. Please note that there will be no practice next Tuesday (December 4) for any training groups due to a North Central home meet. As always, practices are subject to change and cancellation (weather, etc.). Any changes will be communicated ASAP.
