GOLD and PLATINUM- need to report to Bloedel Donovan Park Pavilion  on Saturday at 9:00. We are going on goal setting goals and team bonding activities..I have enjoyed this group so much with the drive and patience with me.  I can’t wait to hear their goals for themselves and to be a part of the swimming journey. Goals are a destination...swimming to them is a journey and a process!!!! Achieved or not..goals help us aim for something!!! Coach Patsy will be writing goals for herself.  I cringe when typing that because I am going to have 30 swimmers checking on me. 


I do want your child to bring their favorite motivational quote.  I love quotes...They will leave with a motivational stick..aka accountable stick to bring to practice.   They will write their favorite quote on it to help them focus.  

Any parents that would like to stay on help with supervision.  Email or text me at [email protected] or 270-485-8268.
