Registration Reminders

Our Long Course Season will begin on Monday, 4/1/2019 and will end on 7/31/2019. In order to participate we must receive the registration form/payment authorization from each family.

Please remember that athletes are enrolling for full season now and that, although you can pay monthly, your participation is for the season. If your athlete arrives to practice on April 1st, but your family has not submitted a billing authorization form, they will not be allowed to participate. Please do not put the coaching staff in this position. 

Forms can be turned in at the front desk, where they will be placed in the Team mailbox. You can also give them to Coach Luke or Coach Dave. Forms may also be given to the attendant at the AquaDesk where they will be placed on Coach Dave’s desk. Please follow up with any questions.

Team Sponsors

I wanted to take a minute and thank Elsmore Swim Shops and Speedo for their great work this season.  Their availability during meets, the ability of them to meet our outfitting requests in an EXTREMELY speedy manner, and the quality of product they provide are a great reminder of why we partner with them.  By using our sponsors, you reinforce that ongoing relationship and support groups that continue to support us.  When you start looking at suits, gear, tech suits, and warmups, remember to swing by Elsmore for a great team outfitting experience!

 

 

Parent Education

HERE is the link for last month’s “Growing Champions” Newsletter.  This passage I believe is the best takeaway for parents raising athletes:

“If you hear your children complaining about their outcomes in sports, school, or socially, ask them three questions. What matters most to you? If it can be measured, what direction is your progress?  What new choices will give you different results in the future?”

 

Athlete Education

HERE is an article about mental hurdles.  Whether it’s stress, negativity, or focus, being able to overcome the adversities you face within yourself garner a special kind of strength that will give you a lifelong edge.
