Attention Whomping Turtle Swim Team Families:
Swim Team Practices will begin Monday, June 22, 2020 for the remaining age groups registered for Swim Team. This pertains to our 7/8, 9/10 and 11/12 Age Groups. As you know our older swimmers began practice in Phase 1 and will continue as well in Phase 2.
With Highlands entering Phase 2 for the Swim Team on June 22 nd , it means that we can have 2-3 swimmers per lane and additional coaches on deck using both pools. This is great news and we are super excited.
Our Coaches and Team Reps will be busy this week and into next weekend after assessments making swim groups that make the most sense for our swimmers. We will create groups and times that ensure each swimmer can swim a number of sessions per week giving consideration to being fair and equal. Due to safety guidance and our large team, your swimmer will not be swimming everyday.
Please be patient as we figure out the groups this week and into the weekend. We can tell you practice will run from 8:30-11:30 Monday through Friday, but the 50 minute block of time your swimmer(s) swims may not be what it has been in the past. We are doing our best to figure that out while balancing swimmers that also dive or participate in the tennis program. It may also change each week as we balance a 5 day swim week and many swimmers that we want to get in equally when we have space and ability to consider.
A schedule for your swimmer (s) will be sent out next Saturday or Sunday, June 20/21.
We know some of you have swimmers that are also divers on the dive team. If you could please email Kelly Rose, Cheryl or Meggie if this pertains to you that would be helpful in our planning.
