Spring break may be over but we are in full swing in preparation for Junior Olympics. JO's is about a month away and there is much to prepare for. Swimmers still have a chance to qualify at the next meet which is Splash Into JO's- April 5 and 6. The deadline for sign ups is March 27. A team email will go out via team unify. Check it out. So far only 11 swimmers are signed up so...sign up soon!
Senior Sectionals was this last weekend in Federal Way, Washington. Katie H and Ellie M both qualified for and particiapted in this BIG meet. Both swimmers got best times and learned a great deal about swimming outside the state. Ellie got best times in 200 back and 50 free and Katie got a best time in the 100 back. In all the races the competition was just hundreths of a second apart and the swimming was fast. It is a great experience to be in races so close.
Now we have another big meet- Northwest Age Group Champs also in Federal Way. Jimmy B and Anna K will be participating and swimming strong. You can check out meet mobile and watch along. You can also make a comment or like a post on our team's face book page. The meet starts tomorrow, Thursday- with Jimmy swimming in the 500 free. Anna's races start Friday. The meet goes thru Sunday.
Seward's Day is Monday. The Chugiak Pool will be closed but the Bartlett Pool will be open. Everyone is encouraged and invited to swim at the Bartlett Pool. Please don't hesitate to ask questions if you need help.
We are aiming high for JO's and everyone's help is needed. Keep up the hard work and focused energy. It is working. Also remember to sign up for meets even if you have recently been in one. The experience of racing is invaluable
Check out the next meet- Splash Into JO's and sign up.
