Thanks to all who attended our Annual Parents Meeting! Standing room only was more than we expected. We promise to get a bigger room next time and also some pumpkin bars :) Hope those who attended enjoy their "prize!"
We hope we answered some of your questions and provided the information necessary to help your swimmer have a successful season with SCAT.
If you were unable to attend, please review the following: Parents Welcome and Handbook
We had some great suggestions after the meeting for some additional team-building ideas.
Tim Watson suggested a dual meet - he remembers days of swimming with dual meets and lots of relays! We all agree relays help build team camaraderie, yet they have been dropped from most meets to save time. We discussed looking for another dual meet and adding relays to our meet events for the meet we will host in February. Thanks Tim!
Leslie Short requested a small group function to help the Silver girls get to know each other better. She is pursuing some ideas for this. I think it would be fun to consider small group functions also. Of course we don't ever want to exclude team members, so we hope this attempt is not viewed as an attempt to exclude anyone :)
Thanks to Andrea for suggesting we introduce ourselves and swimmers!
