We have several updates as we move into heavier competition phase of our season.
I’ve corresponded with many members regarding SJAC team travel. HERE is a list of all team-travel eligible swimmers and their intentions as communicated to me via email. Please check to confirm that your swimmer is listed correctly. If not, please email me ASAP.
We are setting a deadline of Thursday, October 3rd for swimmers to commit to the travel trip. We will be assigning rooms and finalizing plans after that. Once we have our rooms booked, we will release the name of the hotel and the other rooms to parents who want to join us at that hotel.
We have arranged for room blocks for the meets listed below. Room blocks are made to secure a limited amount of rooms at a reasonable rate. They are awarded on a first-come-first-serve basis. These blocks have been arranged by Erin Iacobelli purely for the convenience of our members.
To read instructions on reserving your rooms, click on the name of the meet.
The team apparel is in. Erin sent an email yesterday with instructions for pick up on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday (Oct 1-3) from 4:30-6 pm in the hallway at the entrance to the bleachers at EHS.
The items available for pick up are:
- 3 x Team shirts from apparel fee
- Personal orders placed to Schuylkill Valley Sports
- Hats ($18) and socks ($12) are also available in limited quantities
Team suits and anything ordered from D&J sports are not part of this order.
Look for an email from Coach Seth tomorrow regarding the Pentathlon Meets this weekend.
MILES TO TOKYO
We have created this graphic that will track our progress. MA Swimmign just unveiled the new Champs Series Cuts. Once TeamUnify adds the cuts into a time standard file, we will be able to run reports indicating meets for which the swimmers/swims are qualified. That tool is necessary to produce our first update on our Miles To Tokyo goal. Look for our first update on our Miles To Tokyo after the meets this weekend.
MA CHAMPS SERIES TIME STANDARDS
MA Swimming has updated the Bronze Champs, Silver Champs, and Senior Champs time standards for the 2020 SCY Championship Series. Mini Champs does not have time standards. All other meets have had their time standards adjusted.
Quick notes on time standards compared to last year:
- Senior Champs cuts have been made faster
- Silver Champs cuts have been made faster
As mentioned above, EMAC will provide reports that indicating the meets for which each swim qualifies.
We are off to a great start!
