Athlete of the Month

 

 Balthazar Sauquet

 

Balthazar has shown much improvement not only by attending his first swim meet last month, but also putting in the effort at practices. Balthazar has stepped up into a leadership role and pushed themselves and those around them to be better in and out of the water. Congratulations Balthazar!

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
