Our Cyclones Sprint Gala and Florida Senior Champs are almost here!
The Summer Sprint Gala will be held at Palencia this Thursday, July 25th. Warmups and Registration start at 4:00 PM and meet will start at 4:45 PM. It is a fun, introductory meet for our developmental swimmers.
We are looking for help in timing and other tasks from our seasoned swimmers. Please reply to this email or notify one of our coaches if your 11 yrs. old or older swimmer is available to help. They will earn community service hours through our Cyclones Booster Club.
Florida Swimming Senior Championships will start on Thursday, July 25th. Please find links to the psych sheet, timeline, and updated meet letter.
Coach Appreciation Gifts
It is a Cyclones tradition to give our coaches an appreciation gift from the team at our last summer meet, Titusville Invitational. Andrea Kim at Solomon Calhoun and Wende Larrimore at Palencia will be taking contributions for this gift during Age Group practices. There is a black deposit box at the front desk at Palencia where contributions can be dropped off, too. Envelopes will be available if you would like to add your name. We are so lucky to have these amazing coaches. They all put in many extra hours and practices, so our swimmers are ready and perform their best at meets. Please take time this week to contribute this team gift. The team also gives a gift to our graduating seniors who are continuing to swim in college. Jason Weed graduated from St. Augustine High School this year and will be swimming for University of Lynchburg. Any contribution to this graduation gift will be appreciated as he continues his swimming efforts.
Our 2019 Cyclone Summer Sectional team had a great time in the Gator Nation. Congratulations to Jakob Brougham making two LCM Futures Cuts in the 800 and 1500 meter freestyle. Jakob and Coach Burgess will be traveling to this national level meet July 31st – August 4th. Here is a link to the results:
Lastly, Cyclones Fall Developmental Registration is open. Swimmers who participated in Spring and/or Summer Developmental do not need to pay $20 USA Swimming fee. Respond “yes” to the question of having a current USA Swimming membership. Here is the link to registration:
