1.  Congratulations to all our participants at the Big Chill meet.  We had many best times and a new Sunkissed Qualifier - John McCarren.  Great Job!!!  Meet results have been posted on our website and awards have been placed in the family file folders located in the Large pool observatory.
2.  Huge weekend.  Many of our swimmers will be in action in the first big test of this early season. Some swimmers at Winter Classic (OCY, Toms River, NJ) and some others at Holiday Classic(Rutgers University, Piscataway).  Warm up times have been posted on our website.  Please keep in mind these two meets are prelims and finals for 13&older at both meets, and 11&12 top 10 at Winter Classic.

4. Time Standards - We would like all our swimmers to be familiar with the YMCA time standards.  These are motivational times to start thinking about what event(s) he/she is close to swim at a higher level meet. Attached you will find the time standards file, a card with these motivational times has also been placed in your family file folder.  Remember all swimmers must have at least attended 3(three) YMCA closed competitions in order to be able to compete in the Championship meets.   Also all swimmers must attend the highest level YMCA championship meet that they qualify in order to be considered to join a higher level practice group.
