As we quickly move through fall and go headfirst into some winter weather, now is a good time to remind you about our weather policy. Because we train at the Lake Crystal Rec Center, we are not bound by a school closure policy. This means when school gets called off because of weather, we may still be able to practice. We will always use our best judgment in deciding to hold practice. We will not move practice to a different location if the LCARC closes due to weather. Email notifications will be sent out to the entire team about cancellations in a timely manner, so people don’t get caught out in bad driving conditions attempting to come to a non-existent practice. As always, especially with our athletes that can drive, I rely on our families to use their own judgement in deciding to drive to practice in “weather”. If you have any questions on this don’t hesitate to ask.
We have a bunch of new families that are starting either this week or within the next few weeks. I will hold off on our “New Parent Zoom Meeting” for now until I have rounded up all of our new families. If you have questions in the meantime just shoot me an email and I am happy to help.
For our new families, you can view our practice schedule on our team website by clicking on the calendar tab at the top. Choose the training group you wish to see from the drop-down menus on the left of the calendar. Our schedule doesn’t change from week to week, now that we swim only at one pool. Our training schedule is as follows.
Novice - Tuesdays and Thursdays, 5:00pm - 5:50pm
Age Group - Monday - Thursday (M/W 6:00pm - 7:00pm, T/TH 5:50pm - 7:00pm)
Senior Groups - Monday - Thursday 7:00pm - 8:30pm
Let me know if you need help with anything at this time. I am happy that Mantas Swim Club is able to offer some services for our local swimmers.
Have a great week!
