Greetings All Aquacowboy Families! I wanted to spend a moment to go over information for upcoming events and holidays. Last Friday we had a great meet at Las Positas with many new best times. Here is some important information for the upcoming weeks:
Times from the Las Positas meet are not yet in the US Swimming database but should be there soon. If you need to enter JO's, try to enter the meet anyway and you can bring verification of times when you get to the meet.
This Friday we will have normal practice schedule but there will be no AM practice
This Saturday there will be no practice due to the TERA meet
The Walnut Creek meet is closed. If you would like to have another chance at a meet, you are free to sign up for another available meet without a coach. When you arrive at the meet, tell the meet director you are without a coach and they will assign you to the host team's coach for starts in warm up. Please use the Pacswim website to see available meets
Please sign up for JO's now so there are no last minute mistakes. If you swim faster times at the Walnut Creek meet or make new JO times, you can update your entries. We have 16 qualified swimmers in individual events, our most ever! Because of the distance to the meet, we will only be swimming relays in age groups with four or more individually qualified members whose relays are likely to score team points. We will be fielding three relays teams in the 13-14 girls division.
