We are coming up to the Thanksgiving break next week. The fall has had its share of challenges and we are grateful for everyone’s support and effort to help OCST be the best team it can be. We had lots of parents help out with the home meet and all the visiting teams were thankful of the environment that we create at OC! As we step into Thanksgiving it is a great time to remember the power of “Thank you!” Check out this short blog by Jon Gordon if you have the time. Also make sure you see the schedule and notes below.
- Dual meet tomorrow! If you’re coming and haven’t signed up for a job you can do so here. This competition isn’t as big but we still need help!
- Many people are aware of the drowning of a high school swimmer at the Hillsboro pool. While we don’t know all of the factors around this we can assure you that safety is our number one concern as we show up to practice and work to be our best. We’ll talk to the kids about remaining vigilant and continue to keep safety our priority.
Thanksgiving week schedule:
Practices will be normal Monday through Wednesday. There will be no practices at Molalla on Thursday or Friday. Molalla Sprint swimmers are encouraged to come to OC for practice on Friday, November 29th if they can make it to the OC Pool. If your swimmer is Sprint group or above and out of town; we suggest practicing with a local team or getting workouts from the coach. Consistency is a big part of getting better!
