Weekly Update 9-12-19

As we start of this season, I would like to welcome everyone to the Winter 2019-2020 Short Course Yards season of the Crown Point Swim Club.  As I had mentioned at the parent meeting on Monday, I will be trying to provide weekly updates as to what deadlines are coming up, events on the horizon, and information that you need to know and don’t miss anything.  If there is any information you feel that you aren’t receiving, please let me know.


And to start with, because I bleed Red, White, & Blue, I would like to thank any of our parents or family members of our swimmers who have served in the military or are first responders.  On this somber time of the year, we cannot thank you enough and always pray for your safe return home. #911NEVERFORGET

Nutrition Information:

  • The staff was honored to be able to listen to Dr. Sue Kleiner at the ASCA World Clinic and she had a lot of valuable information that our swimmers and families can use for optimal performance.  She is associated with a product that we are not necessarily promoting for our team’s use so if you are interested in something like that, please investigate it’s health benefits as well as whether or not any of it’s ingredients are on the banned substance lists
  • Dr. Kleiner is the owner of High Performance Nutrition, LLC, a consulting firm in Mercer Island, Washington, and the Director of Science and Communication for Vitargo, Inc. She is currently the High Performance Nutrition Consultant to the Seattle Storm.

Miscellaneous Reminders:

  • Any 2nd season swimmers need to see Coach John, next week, to receive their kickboards and pull bouys if they have not already done so.  This is a one-time distribution to swimmers.  If swimmers lose or destroy what they have already been given it is up to them to replace.
