Friday Nite Lite(s):

 

Starting Friday, August 16th until September 27th will holding Friday Nite Lite’s!

 

Keeping it simple and fun, giving the older swimmer a chance to try out what they're working on in practice. For our younger swimmers an opportunity to get some race exposure. Not to mention the added bonus of socializing with your teammates. 

 

Events will be short, sweet, and have some added fun, such as mixed relays, and strange events.

 

Time: Pool opens for warm-ups at 4:00 pm and the meet will begin at 5:00 pm.  

 

What we need : Parents, we are only asking for timers for the meet, this will not be a lot of set up as we are trying to keep this light and fun. 


 

Open to ALL ages and groups.

 

**This event is in place of practice.


 

Year-round Parent Meeting (Mandatory):

 

At the start of our year-round season, we want to start with a parent meeting. The goal of this meeting is to talk about what are team needs are and the ways parents can help. Our biggest hope is that we can be on the same page in both expectations and execution. We look forward to seeing you all there!

 

We will be offering 2 meetings:

 

Wednesday, 9/4

6:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Saturday, 9/7

9:30 am - 10:00 am

Group Move Ups:

As usual, we want to remind everyone that swimmers can move up to the next group within their age group at any time. Move ups are looked at based on how often swimmers are attending practices and swim meets as well as their positive attitudes within practices.

From age group to age group, we offer move-ups 3 times per year. One time in the fall, around August/September , one time in the winter, December/January , and one time in the spring May/June .


 

Swimcerely,

 

Your Menlo Aquatic Coaching Team
