This week at Delaware Swim Team: 11/9-11/15

Happy Veterans Day!  Thank you to everyone that served our country.  Here's what's happening this week at Delaware Swim Team:

 
 
PRACTICE CHANGES
WEEKEND PRACTICE SIGN-UPS
FALL SPRINT MEET
UPDATE TO COVID-19 HANDBOOK
CONTRACT EXTENSIONS
 
 
PRACTICE CHANGES
 
There are no anticipated practice changes for the next week.
 
Looking further down the road, there may be some practice changes for the Thanksgiving weekend.  Those changes will be mentioned later this month.
 
 
WEEKEND PRACTICE SIGN-UPS
 
Thank you, Competitive Program families, for your continued cooperation in signing up for weekend practices.  As has been mentioned several times before, these sign-ups allow families to have flexibility on the weekends on a week-by-week basis, while still making sure that each practice is within the state's regulations for the number of swimmers per lane.
 
Please make sure to sign up for a practice that you plan on attending.  Please also sign up for just one practice for the weekend.
 
 
Please remember that while some groups may not fill up on either day, the coaching staff would still like families to sign up their swimmers for their location's Senior, Junior, or Mini practice to get in the habit in the event that a group gets bigger later on in the season.
 
KYFW Program groups do not have sign-up pages because as weekend-only groups, all weekend practices are open to swimmers by default.
 
 
FALL SPRINT MEET
 
 
The Fall Sprint Meet is Saturday, November 21, at Thomas McKean High School.  This is a one-day meet for Senior swimmers.
 
Volunteer positions will open tonight, November 11, at 9:00 PM.  Volunteer positions will initially be limited to one position per family for the meet, in order to give each family an opportunity to volunteer before positions fill up; this will be expanded to 2 positions per family tomorrow, November 12, to allow for all of the positions to be filled.  Volunteer position start and finish times may change, if the meet timeline is adjusted.
 
More information about the meet will be sent out as the meet gets closer.
 
 
UPDATE TO COVID-19 HANDBOOK
 
An updated Covid-19 Handbook was sent out last Wednesday to all Delaware Swim Team families.  The new handbook is available here, and is also available in the Documents tab of the team website.  Cooperation from all families and swimmers is appreciated in order to maintain as safe of an environment as possible, and mitigate any issues that may arise as the pandemic continues through the winter.
 
 
CONTRACT EXTENSIONS
 
For those of you that signed up just for Session 1 of this season, now is a good time to begin to consider if you want to extend your contract beyond November 30.  It is easy for the administrative staff to extend your contract, and is easiest before November 30.  You can check your contract status on the team website at My Account>My Account>gray "Members" tab>Roster|Location|Billing Setup.  If you would like your contract extended, please email Coach Matt at [email protected] by November 30.
 
 
Thanks,
The Delaware Swim Team coaching staff
