Welcome to FAST Summer Swimming 2011!
If you are a new family, we are glad to have you with us this year. If you are a returning family, welcome back!
On the schedule this week is our Mock Meet on Wednesday, June 8th and a FAST Hike on Friday, June 10th.
On Wednesday, during the 6 - 7:30 practice time at Camp Friendship, we will host a "mock meet". This is an opportunity for the coaches to see the swimmers in the pool in a friendly competitive environment, for the swimmers to go through the format of a meet, and for the parents to understand the way they help with a meet as well. We need parents to time at the mock meet (3 per lane), so please come ready to help!
On Friday, we the Camp Friendship pool is not available for the 6 - 7:30 pm practices so the coaches are leading a hike at Pleasant Grove. Meet at the Pole Barns at Pleasant Grove at 5:45 (parents who are planning to join on the hike may drop off beverages or chairs at the Dog Park which is where we will end up). We are looking for a parent volunteer who will be willing to watch the drinks/chairs etc... during the hike. We will have a picnic at the Dog Park area after the hike and do need to know who is coming so we make sure we have enough food on hand. Please bring your own drinks for the picnic as well as water for the hikers while walking.
Coming up next week... our first meet and a team camp out. Watch your emails for more information about these two events.
