Swimfo: Board meeting & meet sign-ups

Orcas,

We have some big moments coming up here in the next few weeks.  Please take some time to read through and see what’s happening on swim team!

We’re going to start a string of competitions here this weekend.  The competitive mindset can be constricting for some athletes and liberating for others.  What is important is that we are there for the athletes when they succeed and fail.  Any time someone steps into the competitive arena anything can happen.  Our goal is to empower athletes to see each race as an opportunity to learn and grow.  The competition teaches us about where we are at, and how we need to stretch in order to become better.

Quick hits:

  • This Friday OC Pool has the swamp-swim.  This Friday from 6:00pm on, parents and swimmers will only be able to enter and leave the pool through the front desk walkway or locker rooms.
  • Clinic for ET officials this Saturday at David Douglas during the swim meet. ET officials help run the timing console, verify times from the touchpads, buttons and stopwatches, and input data into hy-tek.  Right now this is one of our biggest needs.  ET officials get a front row seat to the competition!  You can see more about it here.
  • Home meet service jobs are posted!  A successful meet happens when everyone comes together to put on a great event!  
  • I opened up entries for the home meet one more day.  They will close tonight.
  • ALL TEAM BOARD MEETING THIS COMING MONDAY!  We will be voting on some important pieces so please find a way to get there.

GooooOOOOO OCST!

Coach Matt
