GOAL Practice Schedule: June 29 – Aug. 8
On June 29, we will begin a new practice schedule with some changes, including no longer using Westridge Pool, additional use of Westgate Pool, and removing some times at Omaha Home for Boys.
On Friday June 26 we will have an online registration for our Penguin/Dolphin/Piranha levels to select a new practice time. Those who currently have a practice time in our Shark, Senior and SrNats or Sr-Elite levels will NOT need to re-register, but please note your new practice time/location. Also, those Seniors & SrNats requesting to move to a different time from what your practice group is assigned, you will need to e-mail Coach Tom (email@example.com) to request a change.
We do not yet have permission to rent time at Montclair or Mockingbird, though they are set to reopen July 1. If we are able to get evening times at either MC or MB, we may make minor changes to the schedule.
Our current plan is to hold practices until Sat. Aug. 8, and then take a short break before we resume with a Fall schedule. This may just be a 1-week break. A Fall schedule is not known at the present time, as we are waiting to see what the status will be at Montclair, Mockingbird, UNO and Burke H.S..
Important notes on registration that begins Fri. June 26:
1 - Sharks and Senior levels do NOT need to re-register.
2 – Piranhas, choose a MWF Dolphin time (we suggest the MWF 9:45 AM at WG if poss.), and you will practice 9:45-11 AM at Westgate on Saturday’s for your 4th practice.
3 – Penguins and Dolphins, your options will be 9:45 or 10:45 AM at WG (MWF or TThS), or MWF 4:30 at OHB. Those who have been once or twice a week and would like to continue that, you’ll need to choose the registration group that contains the day(s) that works best for you, then notify Vickie Beck (firstname.lastname@example.org) with what you’d like to set as your normal schedule.
