As the season winds down, we’re looking towards the Summer season with big changes and exciting growth for our program! Please read this entire email as it has a LOT of information.

We had a great win at our Regional Meet as a team two weeks ago and then last weekend our Senior program earned a 10th place finish at Senior State. Some highlights include Kaelyn Gridley winning the 100 & 200 breaststroke and Greta Pelzek & Leslie Wendel earning 2nd & 7th respectively in the 200 fly and our ladies 400 medley relay of Jane Sanderson, Kaelyn, Greta and Joelle Ohr placed 4th.  

Age Group State is this weekend in Indiana and we are looking forward to our 26 athletes pulling together for a team effort as well as our 7 athletes traveling down to Florida March 18-24th for NCSA Junior National Championships.  
And don’t forget about the 12 & Under Sprint Intersquad this Saturday at Northfield at 8a! It’s going to be fast and fun!

Practice Schedule
As we look at scheduling the next two weeks, we are looking to make sure those athletes still competing at championship meets have ample practice time to prepare for the last meets of season.  That being said, there are some changes to the workouts this week.

PDF's of the schedule for the next two weeks
March 4-9
March 10-16

Please use these as your primary practice reference.
Google calendars are in the process of being updated to reflect these changes but we are going to try something a little different for these two weeks and see if this helps with the workout communications. Feedback is appreciated.

Any workout changes for these two weeks will be communicated via email as soon as possible and the teamunify notification system and subsequently changed in Google.  

Reminder that we do not have formal workouts March 17-31st.
Individual coaches may offer clinics or lessons during this time, and they will communicate that out accordingly.

April Practice Schedule has been a work in progress.
Adding a new site as well as new members to our team has been exciting but also a fair amount of challenge, given our constraints at Northfield and Winnetka with high school water polo. In May, we anticipate more pool time and will be adding workouts for all groups each week as that time becomes available when various teams finish their season.  

We very much appreciate the patience and understanding the entire team has shown with the schedule this season. One of the unforeseen consequences of having a successful team environment at the club level is that more athletes are getting involved at the high school level - which is AWESOME! but it does put the pinch on us for pool time and we have had to accomodate the high school programming more this season. Thank you so much for understanding our continued relationship with the high schools in our area as before you know it... the little sharks will be part of the great high school aquatics traditions of the northshore. 

Registration for Summer season is open
The summer practice & meet schedule will be up shortly. We are charging $100 non-refundable fee to register that will be applied to your overall season fee. This season you will have the option to pay in two installments – April 5 & June 5th. We do not prorate the season, with the exception of athletes participating in spring high school sports. Swimmers participating in the summer will have priority registration for the fall and will not need to tryout. If you have questions regarding your specific situation, please do not hesitate to reach out to our staff and we will work with you as best we can!
