Parents Meeting October 19, 2011
Cajen Rhodes (facility manager at Kedron Aquatic Center) addressed the team and explained the issues they are facing with the repairs at the pool. The most relevant information for us as a team was the news that the pool may not be open prior to Dec 2011.
Now that we have this information and update, we have amended our practice schedule and moved our pool practices to the Boudary Waters Recreation facility in Douglasville. We are truly thankful that they are trying to accomodate our team during this "bump in the road."
We understand that this may create a hardship for some of our familes, so we have offered a "leave of absence" opportunity during the months we cannot swim at Kedron. If your swimmer chooses not to stay with the team during this time, we will suspend your billing until we are back at Kedron. You must notify Denise Sturman prior to Oct 30 if you wish to exercise this option.
We are still providing pool and dryland practices for those who choose to stay with the team. Please see information below.

(If any Gold swimmers would like to swim the Senior workout in the MORNINGS at Douglasville, they are welcome. All workouts will be geared towards the Senior training schedule and appropriate intervals. This will not be a typical Gold practice.)

Evenings – 7:00 – 8:30 pm (Tues & Thursday)
Dryland * Same as Gold Dryland

Evenings—3:15—4:00 pm (Mon—Thurs)
We will notify our Bronze families immediately if we find this time changes from World Gym
Dryland practice will consist of running, core work, flexibility and strength training. All swimmers MUST wear running shoes every evening. If your swimmer arrives without proper shoes, they will be not be allowed to train with the team and will be required to sit out. This is extremely important and a true safety issue.
