"Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
Good evening TorpedoesNation,
As we enter the new summer season, we will start seeing new faces on the pool deck. Mykenzie Kostka will be on deck this week, please say Hi.
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:
-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
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.
The Pike Spring Invitational is happening May 12-14, at Pike High School. We have sent in our entry, but there is a chance we will be able to make changes. Please contact Coach Dave immediately to be entered.
Open Water State Meet date correction
Previously, the open water state meet had been listed on Jun 15th, but the correct date is June 25th. This is a great opportunity for our athletes to compete in a different setting. We have some that could be great open water swimmers, and I encourage all to consider trying it.
Torpedo Tuesday at Holiday World
We are planning a day for THT to go to Holiday World and Splashin’ Safari on June 18th. Please put the date on your calendar now. We will have more specific information as we get closer, but at this time save the date, if you can.
Torpedoes Diving shirts will be in before the end of the week. See Troy or Dave to get shirts.
Diving Intrasquad Meet
Diving will be looking to host a THT only meet for divers at the VCSCAC. Dates are being considered, but late June looks strong.
