EMAC: On-The-Horizon 6/10/19

Hello EMAC Families,

In this weeks On-The-Horizon we will be covering our transition into outdoor training, upcoming meets, championships, our fall registration, and a few other team functions.

Transition to Community Pool

The team as a whole will be transitioning outside to Community Pool for morning workouts starting JUNE 19th.  The Killer Bee group has already transitioned to outside on certain days, KB's stay up to date with updates from Coach O on where your practices will be held over this week due to weather.  Practice times for Community once we transition outside are as follows:

  • Killer Bees:  6:30am-8:30am Monday through Saturday
  • Wasps: 8:30am-10:00am Monday through Saturday
  • Bees: 8:30am-10:00am Monday through Saturday

Championship Registrations

If you are planning on attending a Championship meet and have not already registered, please do so now as the close dates for these meets are quickly approaching.  The following dates are when entries are due and no additional entries will be accepted.

  • June 17th - Senior Zones
  • June 26th - Silvers, JOs

Meet Entries

The Bucknell Long Course Classic is this weekend!  Please double check your attached entries so you know what you are swimming each day.  Be on the lookout for a seperate email pertaining to the Bucknell meet over the next couple days.  We are still able to make changes to the Firecracker Meet entries until Wednesday.  If you would like to get into the Firecracker meet, please email Coach Seth.


With our Triathlon Team growing in leaps and bounds, there has been some interest among EMAC swim team members in the sport of cycling.  Doug had a meeting with the director at the Velodrome and she offered us a half-price night in June during their international races.  So, on June 28, from 7pm to 10pm EMAC swimmers/triathletes and family members will attend the races at the velodrome. 

Prices will be $5.00 per ticket.  If you plan on attending, please commit to the event using our event commitment page HERE.  If you attend but you do not commit through our page, you will pay the full price.    

More information will be emailed separately. 

Summer League Meets

This summer, we will be sending coaches out to Summer League meets to meet more of the East Penn swimming community.  They will be there to watch some swims, talk to our families, meet new families, and answer any questions anyone may have.  Please be on the lookout for both Coaches Seth and Jason at the following meets:

  • June 17th - Lower Macungie @ Macungie
  • June 18th - Brookside @ Trident
  • June 25th - Alburtis @ Lehigh

Fall Registration

Fall Registration will be up on the website within the next couple weeks.  Returning member registration will open on July 15th and will be open for all returning members for 2 weeks.  After this window registration opens for everyone.

See you at the pool!
