WANTED- SVSL CHAMPIONSHIP PICS: Do you have any?  We’d love to see them (and add them to our team website!) 

AWARDS: There were many ribbons that were earned over the summer.  If you weren’t able to come to awards day, please swing by the pool M-Th between 9am-8pm through August 1 to pick up the stash. We also have commemorative pins for all members of this season’s team.  Come to the office to get yours!  

 

WE DON’T HAVE SWIM PRACTICE IN AUGUST?  That is correct. We do take the month of August off of regular swim practice.  This is a good time for your swimmer to take a break, miss their swimming friends, start school without distractions and prepare for an awesome season to come.  

If your swimmer is interested in some fine tuning, check out our private swim lessons through www.swimatpres.org .  We have also put together some special weekday clinics in August.  To view those sessions, check out the “ events ” tab of the website and search the “August Clinics” listed by week.  There are 6:00 and 6:30 classes ($20/class and you may sign up for back to back classes.)  The coaches will work in small groups (maximum 15 per class) with an assistant coach to also help.  

 

DESPERATE PLEA FOR OFFICIALS: There are new rules being put into place in our zone with certain numbers of officials necessary for each team to bring to meets based on the number of swimmers on the team.  Since we have graduated 4 of our officials, we are stuck and NEED YOUR HELP! If you are interested in learning more, there are opportunities for you to be trained to help your swimmer and the team be able to compete in meets in the future.  Please email Marisa to find out more details. Our team can not go on without officials. We currently have ONE and that is not nearly enough!  

 

SUMMER 2020 TAHOE MEET:  We hope your family would consider joining us at this fun summer meet next year.  The competition will be on June 26-28, 2020. Whether you are a camping family , hotel family (stay on the CA or NV side) or cabin rental family ( Bijou Pines is the neighborhood near the pool), there’s something for everyone if you plan in advance.  Email Marisa if you have any questions about this very fun family opportunity. 

 

HAWAII 2020: Interested in some amazing swims in one of the most beautiful places in the world?  My family has been doing these Oahu races for the past 3 years and love them. They are offered throughout the summer, with each swim getting progressively longer.  We would love for any of our BAY swimmers to check out these swims, but especially are trying to get a group together to attend the 2.3 mile OPEN WATER swim Ehukai to Waimea race (Saturday, August 9, 2020.)  This is a family travel meet. Swimmers who are interested would be traveling and staying with their individual families. We’d do optional (and fun) training swims for the three days leading up to the “big swim”.  My youngest entered this swim for the first time when he was 9 years old. It can be leisurely or super intense- your swimmer decides! We hope to have coaches swimming alongside of them too. And there are kayakers and paddlers that are along their course as well.  It’s a very well run event! Email me if you have any questions. I am a wealth of knowledge about the North Shore of Oahu.
