RACING WEEKEND!: Our season is officially underway with over 125 of our swimmers racing over the weekend.  We hosted a “Race Morning” on Saturday for our team members who were ready to race their teammates in some fun and quick events.  Results for this unofficial meet will be included in next week’s newsletter. While these results will not be included in the USA Swimming “official” database of times, we do keep track of them in our meet management software.  If you ever would like a list of your swimmer’s times, just let me know! 

If you missed Saturday’s “Race Morning”, we will have one more this Fall on Friday, October 4 in the evening.  RSVP online through the “events” page of the website.

Our Varsity and Senior swimmers headed up to Truckee for a three day meet and team retreat.  They dusted off the cobwebs and remembered how to race after a long break. The meet was run so efficiently and was done each morning by 11am!  There were even 50’s of all the strokes for these 13 and older swimmers PLUS a 100 IM, events usually removed from meets once you turn 13 years old.  After racing, the team enjoyed some great team meals, ziplining, ropes course training, lake swimming and lots of team together time. We will definitely be returning to this meet in the future. A big THANK YOU to our two fabulous chaperones, Mrs. Carvajal and Mrs. Just, for taking care of all of us over the weekend!!!!

DRYLAND FOR PHS SWIMMERS: We will have dryland workouts on the days when the PHS water polo team is hosting home games.  Swimmers should come in athletic apparel and shoes with laces to meet their coaches outside the pool area on the grass between the pool and the gym.

We will host makeup practices for Blue and Yellow group swimmers on Fridays from 6-6:45pm on 10/11, 10/25, 11/1 and Saturday 10/12 from 11-noon.
