Good evening everyone,
We had a great first week last week, which included our sprint pentathlon on Friday during practice. I have already seen hard work and dedication from the athletes and am looking forward to continuing team growth as we continue to work.
I cannot express the importance of being at practice every day and always putting forth your best effort. We need to be getting into the water by 3 in order to get practices started on time which means you need to arrive with enough time to get out of your street clothes and grab necessary equipment. If you have any scheduling conflicts, please let me know in advance if possible.
This week the practices will be as scheduled, for the swimmers it is M, T, W, F 3-530(drop off at 245, picked up by 545). This week the swimmers will be doing a practice meet run-through on Tuesday so that we can be completely familiar with the current requirements before our first virtual meet on Thursday against Shakopee.
The Chhuoy’s have volunteered to take care of organizing grab and go meals for after the swim meets, which is very much appreciated. There will be a sign-up on team unify for people to bring necessary drinks, deserts, etc.
We will also need volunteers for timing (3) and checking in spectators and streaming on Facebook for meet days. We will be allowed to have 11 spectators if we have enough room for appropriate social distancing(not Jan 14). I will make an announcement on Tuesday evening regarding how we will manage spectators during the season. If you have suggestions on how you think we can best manage who gets to watch each meet, please email me your idea. Keep in mind that spectating will be limited to immediate family.

If they want a nickname put on the back you are welcome to order that when you order one for parents, siblings, aunts and uncles, grandparents, etc. This is also a fundraiser for the booster club, so, the more we sell, the better off we are. I’m going to be putting this one on social media also.
