Weekly Update- December 2nd

Monday, December 2nd


Good afternoon GRSC Parents and Swimmers,

It’s a new week! Some items to keep in mind as we set out to achieve new goals and improve:


Team Wide:

  • Saturday, December 7th- Gulliver will host SAT testing. Senior, Senior Prep, and Gold parents: please drop off swimmers and have them report directly to the pool deck. We must remain silent during testing times.

Senior Group:

  • Thursday and Friday afternoon, all Seniors must swim from 5:30-7:30 PM. Weights on Friday will still run from 4:45 PM- 5:15 PM

  • Friday morning, all Seniors must swim 5:15- 6:15 AM with Coach Norman. There will only be one group.

  • Saturday will be a normal 7:30-10:30 AM practice, but bring dryland clothes.


  • We will be doing an Ugly Sweater contest and White Elephant gift exchange on December 19th after practice in the Student Union.

    • To participate in White Elephant, please bring a wacky gift (under $25). Only those who bring a wrapped gift will be allowed to participate.

Age Group:

  • Coach Daniele Tirabassi begins working with the Gold group on Tuesday, December 3rd. Please make sure to introduce yourself and welcome him.

  • Saturday there will be no practice for Silver or Bronze, as those groups will be at the NMST swim meet.

  • A holiday party is being planned. Details will be sent out as soon as possible.
