Poseidon Fees – May 2020
Poseidon swim fees were not be charged on May 1st. If we get into the water prior to June 1st, fees will be prorated and billed manually through paper invoices. Fees for June will come out electronically as usual.
USA Swimming has cancelled all swim meets through May 31, 2020.
They have also cancelled all National Travel meets, i.e. Sectionals, Zones, Futures, Juniors, Nationals, etc.
They will be formatting 14-16 Regional meets for mid to late August; they are not sure what that will look like yet. Stay tuned.
Keep those fingers crossed that we get the ok for Moses Lake!!!!

SCHEDULE CHANGES: - NO PRACTICE – Until June ??.
As most of you know Governor Inslee has not released people from the extended “Stay at home” order. We will continue to follow the recommendations of the CDC, USA Swimming, and the mandates of the Governor.
Hopefully with this extension, the COVID-19 virus will come down to acceptable levels for all of us to return to some form of normalcy.
Please stay safe!
2020 Poseidon Banquet – Cancelled.
The 2020 Poseidon Banquet is cancelled. Due to COVID-19 regulations and precautions we have been forced to cancel the 2020 Poseidon Banquet. We are trying to devise a way to get awards to the swimmers (especially IMX Award Winners) sometime this summer. It will probably be an individual process and not as a group. Stay tuned.
Poseidon Team Pictures 3:45 – 6 pm rescheduled TBD…more information coming soon.
Picture information will come home with the swimmers as soon as we can get back in the water and start holding practice.
Swimmers will have the opportunity to take individual, buddy, and/or a team photo. If you are not planning to have individual photos, please plan to attend for the Team Picture. Please wear a dark blue or black Poseidon t-shirt for the team photo; if you do not have one, there will be t-shirts available for swimmers to borrow.
THOUGHT OF THE MONTH:
I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination. –
