WCSC Parents and Swimmers:
Every summer swimmer is expected to participate at Time Trials on Saturday May 18 at Larkey. Warm up at 7:45am.
Time Trials is not only an opportunity to do a run through in operations, but most importantly gives swimmers and coaches a baseline of racing skills and times for each athlete so we can have a way to track everyone’s progress.
We will commit all athletes in Team Unify that are full season swimmers to ATTEND, If you absolutely cannot participate we need to know --- please go to Team Unify, Time Trials and select the EDIT COMMITTMENT and select the DECLINE button. Don’t panic if you absolutely must decline your athlete.
Athletes will be entered in free, back, breast and fly. We will not be swimming IM at Time Trials. By coaches’ discretion we will evaluate our novice swimmers and not enter them in events we feel are inappropriate for their skill level at this time.
Coaches are working hard with the 6 and U. If they are able to swim a full unassisted lap we will add them to Time Trials.
Skills we are working on: Breast stroke: Press to Y, and breath on in sweep —Other strokes: Establish the proper High Elbow CATCH for propulsion. 9 and Ups---Turns, Turns and more Turns! Kids have been responsive, cooperative and we are all getting in the groove!
Continued THEME is TEAMWORK and RESPECTING our COMPETITION.
IMPORTANT: We are in dire need of meet officials including stroke
and turn, starters, etc. We have a lot of openings and cannot
run our meets without these positions filled. Experience is a
plus but IS NOT necessary. There is an official’s
training class at Acalanes High School on 5/7/19 from 7-9pm.
Please contact us at directors@walnutcreekswimclub.
If you are swimming this summer be sure to get your suit order in. We highly encourage swimmers to wear WCSC team suits at meets. It shows team spirit and makes it easier, especially at the bigger meets, for coaches to identify the swimmers in the water and on the deck. The lead time on the suits is 4-5 weeks. The apparel can be ordered through the link below and the apparel page on the team website. Be sure to order WCSC gear!
