Shark Bytes - Oct 6
Hello Sharks!
This week in Shark Bytes:  
  • Save the dates
  • Lost necklace at Olson
  • Mandatory Parent Meeting
  • Worthington Meet 
October 10 - Mandatory Parent Meeting @ Southdale
October 25- Virtual Meet @ Olson Middle School
I had a gold necklace turned into me at Olson last Monday after the parent meeting.  It was found in the bleacher area.  If you lost it, please let me know.


October 10 - Mandatory Parent Meeting @ Southdale 6:00pm & 7:00pm

This is the last Mandatory Parent Meeting for the fall season.  Many of you have not yet attended a meeting, this is your last chance to get your swimmer form from me, so PLEASE plan on attending!  No Swimmer form = No swim practice

For those of you that attended last Monday's meeting at Olson, your forms are due tomorrow!!  Please turn in your form to Coach Paul, Coach Cassie, Coach Katie or myself tomorrow at practice!!

Winter swimmers that are returning in December, will have their own parent meeting to attend on December 9th at Olson Middle School at 7:00pm in the bleachers.  



I wanted to send out one of our upcoming meets (Worthington) due to the limited hotel availability in Worthington the weekend we will have our meet.
Worthington Swim Meet
November 9, 2019
Estimated start time:  2pm
The meet will last about 3-4 hours
Worthington are wonderful hosts and will offer a pizza party and open swim to all of the teams after the meet.
Many of you will want to stay the night while others will travel home.  Worthington has limited rooms on November 9th so I would recommend that you reserve your room soon.  I was only able to block about 25 rooms at the Holiday Inn Express.  Other hotels in the area have rooms, but not enough for all of us or for me to block for the Sharks.  IF you are booking a room, please book a King room if you only have 2 people.  If you have 4 people, consider a king with a sofa sleeper.  Many larger families will be going and with the limited number of rooms, please book smaller if you can.

For our new families, this is one of our travel meets.  They are not mandatory but a ton of fun.  We do not provide transportation or hotels for our athlete's.  Families travel together.  There will be practice for those that say behind and do not attend this meet. 

I look forward to seeing everyone at the upcoming PARENT MEETING THIS WEEK!  Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
