Team Celebration Dinner
3/27/19 - 6:00pm at Clarks Fish
12903 Hood Landing Road
We have the second floor reserved for family and swimmers alike. This will be a fun last night out for Storm swimmers and we will have our Senior Signing Day ceremonies. I’m creating a web event on our website to just RSVP numbers, but we reserved it for about 70 people.
Spring Opener Long Course
March 30-31 we have a team hosted long course meet at Cecil Field. This is just about getting some long course swims in, times shouldn't be stressed. We will need 8 volunteer parent timers in the morning and 8 volunteer swimmer timers in the afternoon. I'll get the sign ups for the meet and timing positions up today! Should be a small and short meet!
Official first day of Loggerhead practice is Monday April 1.
I’m meeting with Head Age Group Coach Eric Jacob today, but my goal is to transition the age group team over to LA the last week of March to get placement swims and group assignments. Coach Matt from Storm will be moving to Colorado the third week of March so from a coaching perspective this is the best timing. Also, I wanted to say a big thank you to Matt for the past season. He had decided to move to Colorado well before the Loggerhead transition and finish this season with the NCSA meet and take his group through the end of the season.
We have a shirt and cap for all the swimmers transitioning over to Loggerhead as well. Those will be distributed after spring break (I don’t have them yet). Also the National Team gear that I ordered is just in for embroidery, should be out after spring break as well.
NCSA Travel Team
We will depart for Orlando 3/19 (Tuesday) in the morning. If you have not already RSVP’d your travel team intentions to me, tonight is the deadline to tell me you’re going on your own. Otherwise vans will be rented and rooms finalized.
I’ll get pricing out to you ASAP.
