Timing Update
Many thanks to the parents who braved the cold, wet weather last weekend at Osprey and ALMA! It was brutal out there, especially on Sunday, and we appreciate your dedication! A few notes:

  • Signing up to time and choosing a shift represents a commitment on your part. If you do not attend the meet, for whatever reason, it is your responsibility to provide a substitute or notify the Timing Coordinator, or you will be fined since you are not fulfilling your obligation.
  • If it turns out we are not assigned as many chairs as we have timers, assume you will be timing and check in with the Timing Coordinator regardless of whether or not you think you will be needed. You are always needed!
  • Without parents timing, your kids would not be able to race. Think of it as an opportunity to support your swimmer!

Overall, everyone is doing a fantastic job, and I haven't heard "Santa Clara needs relief timers" in a while--awesome! Let's keep it up and continue to show the swimming community and each other why SCSC is the best!
Kim O'Brien, Volunteer Coordinator

No Friday morning workout for anyone, normal Friday afternoon, Saturday morning 7:00-9:00am, only for Junior National Qualifiers.

I wish you good luck in the JO meet! Please be a smart swimmer and have your shoes and warm clothes on until you swim; you 'll swim much better!

Yellow Bells
Yellow Bell swimmers please look for our new warm-up in next week’s edition of our Chlorine. For those swimmers that will be swimming in JO’s this coming Friday, Saturday and Sunday, good luck! As a group, our last months of workouts have been tough, though as coaches, we cannot be more pleased by the way you have been competing. Keep up the good work and let us now start looking at our December meet schedule for more opportunities to reach our goals!

White Bells
White Bell Practice is 4:00-5:00pm Monday-Friday at Mary Gomez. This time will be our new practice time through the winter months. We will be offering a make-up workout 5:30-6:30pm Tuesday and Thursday this week. Please feel free to contact Coach Dave at dmeck@santaclaraswimclub.orgfor any questions. To remind you, we will be moving White Bell practice to 5:00-6:00 pm as soon as the Wilson Pool is back online for use.
