News from the Pool- Week of February 7
THIS IS THE FINAL WEEK OF THE WINTER SESSION: If you are not registered for the next session, then this is your final week of the season. We have enjoyed working with your swimmers, getting outside and having fun! Blue and yellow group swimmers will have evaluations mailed to their homes at the end of the session. We hope you can use them to make training improvements and get a little better every time you come to practice!
VALENTINE’S CARDS: Looking for an activity for your family? Why not make some valentine’s cards for Senior Citizens. With many seniors living in care facilities and not being able to see loved ones, why not make some cards that can brighten their day. Turn into the pool attendant by Saturday, February 13. Coach Marisa will be hand delivering the cards to local care facilities. If you make sooo, sooo many, she’ll have to drop them off at multiple locations! Let’s bust out the crayons, heart stickers, doilies and spread some cheer.
