There will be no morning practices for the Senior group from now until after the Delaware High School State Meet has concluded.
 
There is no dryland for the Senior group through the next week.  Seniors NC2 will begin at 6:30 PM on the weekdays for the next week.
 
Looking further ahead, Senior practices may be adjusted next weekend for the Delaware High School State Meet.
 
 
WEEKEND PRACTICE SIGN-UPS
 
The weekend practice schedules for the Senior, Junior, and Mini groups reflect the practice schedule for this weekend, due to the swim meet.  Please make note of the times and locations that are mentioned.
 
 
KYFW Program groups do not have sign-up pages because as weekend-only groups, all weekend practices are open to swimmers by default.
 
 
PIRATE PLUNGE A/BB/C MEET
 
 
As announced last week, the second day of the Pirate Plunge A/BB/C Meet will take place this Sunday, February 21.
 
The period to scratch from this Sunday's session, and not be billed for scratched events, has closed.  All events for the meet this Sunday are final.
 
Volunteer positions were reopened, and are still open until Friday night, February 19.  Volunteers are still needed for both the morning and afternoon sessions.  You can sign up to volunteer here.
 
If you would like to earn volunteer service points but do not feel safe volunteering at the meet, the other approved way to earn volunteer points is by donating gift cards for Delaware Swim Team to give to officials.  We give gift cards to officials because officials use their own money to get certified as officials, in order to work your swimmer's meets.  If you would like to donate a gift card in order to thank our officials, you can sign up here.
 
Other information for this Sunday will be sent separately.  With the state now allowing 6 swimmers per lane, we may have more than the previous 4 swimmers per lane, at the discretion of the meet referee.
 
 
CONTRACT EXTENSIONS
 
If your swimmer is on a Session 1 & 2 contract, your swimmer will be done with Delaware Swim Team on Sunday, February 28.  If you would like to extend your swimmer's contract to Session 3, which covers March through May, please email Coach Matt at [email protected] as soon as possible.  Session 3 will then be billed automatically on March 1.
 
 
SPRING PRACTICE SCHEDULE
 
The State of Delaware is allowing 6 swimmers per lane, beginning last Friday, February 12.  As a result of these changes, the administrative staff will be modifying the practice schedule for some groups at each location.  Any changes will go into effect on Monday, March 1.  Changes to the schedule will be sent out later in February.
 
 
SUMMER SWIM LEAGUE ZOOM MEETING
 
There will be an informative Zoom session today, February 17, at 6:30 PM with Jamie Mack, Chief of Health Systems Protection for the Delaware Division of Public Health - DHSS.  This presentation will focus on Summer 2021 for summer swim leagues.  Any summer swim team representatives from SSL, NBSL, or other summer swim leagues are encouraged to attend.  Below is the information for the meeting:
