Storm March Racing "Plan of Action"


We have made some adjustments to our plan of action for the end of the season. We were
presented with an additional meet offering hosted by the MFLY team at the U of MN at the end of

With this new offering, we will have our entire team able to compete at the same weekend for
an "end-of-season meet," for the first time in the history of the club! This will make the practices easier to
coordinate and keep our team in action, util our school districts begin their spring breaks at the end of March.

The club will offer a two-week training group for 40 swimmers, which will be FOUR days a week for 1.5 hours
a night. It will start on March 29 and run through April 8. This offering will be for JR1 and
up. Age group swimmers will take a two week break.

The whole team will resume practices on April 12.  Both of our school districts say that we can
request pool time for spring and summer, beginning in early March. This will return our club to the traditional registration process and allow for schedules to be posted months in advance.

Please reach out if you have questions on the meet schedule that we have planned.
