Gator Newsletter - Week 2
Hello Gator Families! We are off to a great start! Our first week of practices went really well - all of the kids worked hard and had fun! It is wonderful seeing all of the returning Gators, and meeting so many new Gators. This summer we have our biggest team EVER - over 300 Gators! The coaches are slowly learning names as best we can. Everyday at practice we play some kind of name game with the kids, so that we can get to know them and they can meet new friends.
We've designed each Placement Practice to be half the size - so please only have your Gator attend on their assigned days. Your Gator should meet us by the lap pool bleachers at the beginning of their practice time ready to swim with their suit/cap on and goggles.
During placement practices, we will do a brief warmup and then have a low-key intersquad meet. We will use the same starter we use at meets to begin the "race", and time them in various events. These race times along with their performance during practices will determine if they are on A team or B team. The roster will be emailed to you by Sunday evening, June 9th. Below are some important upcoming dates and deadlines. Please mark your calendars!
