July 9, 2012
I hope everyone had a good 4thof July holiday and is enjoying their summer. It is hard to believe that the summer is nearing the half-way point. And in the world of swimming, that means Championship Meets are just around the corner. So with that, I have a few “Championship Points” to address.
- The NFS “Championship” team continues to grow with those swimmers who have achieved “cut” times for FLAGS, Sr. Champs or Southern Zones. As in previous seasons, those swimmers will receive an official NFS Championship T-Shirt so please reply to me with your child’s size as soon as possible. And if any parents would like an additional shirt, just let me know by Wednesday July 11, 2012. The cost of each additional shirt is only $15. The shirts are 100% cotton and available in Youth M – Youth XL, as well as adult sizes Small – 2XL.
- In addition, many of our swimmers will be competing in various summer league championships throughout the city. Whether your swimmers are swimming in RCSL, the FCSSL, the YMCA or any other leagues it is an exciting time and a great opportunity to showcase the results of their hard work. As a little motivation for our kids we will have some NFS temporary tattoos they can wear to “subtly” show a little NFS pride while representing their summer league teams. The tattoos will be available at practices the week of July 19.
- Speaking of NFS Pride, the NFS Official Team Store is open and in full (beta-testing) mode.
The site is live, but brand new so there will be kinks, just let me know if anything looks weird or isn’t working correctly and I will try and get it worked out. This is going to be a continual work in progress and I welcome all input and ideas for items and designs. Keep in mind that most of the embroidered items are made to order so if there is a specific color-combination you are interested in, just make a note and we will see what we can do.
Thanks for your time. Good luck to everyone in their Championship meets.
