Good afternoon TorpedoesNation,         

Coaching Changes          

                As we enter the new summer season, we will start seeing new faces on the pool deck.  Please make sure to say hi, and work with our new coaches, as they impart their wisdom on your children.

New Parent Orientation

                A part of the new season, we will be having two nights where board members will help new parents (or veteran parents, if they are interested) with many topics that are useful, for being with the Torpedoes.  Topics include:
-website navigation

-Paying bills

-Signing up for meets

-What to bring to meets

-How/when to get in touch with coaches

-Many other topics


Attendance is not required, and each night will provide the same info, so coming to one night is enough.  The meetings will take place in the wet classroom, behind the diving boards.

Tuesday April 23 6:05pm - 6:45pm

Wednesday April 24 6:05pm – 6:45pm


Torpedo Tuesday

                A team tradition, where swimmers are encouraged to wear their THT T-shirt to school on Tuesdays.  If your swimmer is new to the team, we have team t-shirts for new swimmers at the pool.  Often time there may be a small prize for those that participate.


Treasurer Tuesday

                For anyone with questions, or wanting to make a payment, the team Treasurer (Alyson O’Rourke) is making herself available at the pool, in the wet classroom from about 6pm until 7pm each Tuesday.  She will help with making payments or answer questions. 


Making Waves

                Our team swim shop, Making Waves (out of Indianapolis), will be coming to our pool on Saturday, April 27.  They will arrive at 8:00am, and be ready for customers about 8:15am.  They will have suits, caps, goggles, kickboards, fins, hand paddles, snorkels, wet bags, warmups, parkas and more.    This is the best time to get your equipment for the season, and almost all of it will go home with you that same day.


Pike Spring Invitational

                The Pike Spring Invitational is happening May 12-14, at Pike High School.  We will send an entry early next week, and a final entry after the deadline on April 19th.  The entry has been updated to allow you to sign up.
