Dear GMA Families,
CONGRATULATIONS on an OUTSTANDING weekend at the UVAC Regional Meet! What a terrific TEAM you were ALL WEEKEND LONG! I am so inspired by our focused, resilient, determined and committed athletes. We achieved 65% personal best times together and raced with great enthusiasm and effort. Our athletes stayed positive and focused, even after disappointing races and nearly missed cut times. I love our ability to race with quality, learning from the challenges and focusing on the task at hand. We know how important these skills are not only in great athletic performances but also in day to day life! We are especially thankful to all of our parents who volunteered to make the meet run so well. How awesome to look around the pool deck and see so many GMA moms and dads timing and officiating. Thank you to our incredibly dedicated officials who worked MANY sessions in which their children were not in attendance. Your support of our sport is incredible.
Since we all experienced a long, fun, fast weekend together, it is now time to recover from our efforts. There will be NO GMA PRACTICES TOMORROW, Monday 2/11/19 for our GMA Prep, State, Regional and Age Groups Groups. There is OPTIONAL PRACTICE TOMORROW, Monday 2/11/19 for our GMA Senior, Sectional and National Group swimmers at our normal practice time.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
Way to go GMA!
Laura Matuszak, GMA Head Coach
