Good Afternoon TorpedoesNation,
A few have been asking about registration for next season, and we want you all to know that registration is now open for all returning athletes. Our long course season will begin next week, in early April, with practices Thursday or Friday to start each group, following Callouts on Wednesday or Thursday (tell your friends). Calendars are updated, and online for all groups.
For those that are not as experienced, anyone who has been on the team Does Not need to try out again. We coaches know you as swimmers, and have notified athletes that need to move groups. If you have questions, please contact your coach, or coach Dave.
For a quick reminder, our summer season starts in April, and concludes in late July, unless competing in championship meets. We will have a significant change in the fact that the pool will be long course. That means 50 meters at a stretch, instead of 25 yards. For our younger groups, we have false walls that will be used to help in this transition to the longer distances.
Masters State Meet
The first Saturday in April (6th and 7th)ý we will host the Indiana Masters State Meet. While you are not required to help work, the more we have, the easier it will be. We will be working in conjunction with Indiana State University swimmers to help time the meet, but we are always looking for more help. As of now, we need about 20 more timers throughout the weekend.
Summer Meet Schedule
Attached to this email should be a document with basic info regarding our summer meet schedule. We will also be adding at least 2 home meets that will be as much about learning the meet process for athletes as it is about the actual racing in the water.
Please be aware that deadlines for signing up are firm, and we cannot guarantee any changes after the signup deadlines listed for meets.ý Please take the time to sign up early.
