Team Update


Hello Team Members!

Thank you for the great turn out of parents at our meeting last night. If you missed the meeting attached is the power point we reviewed. I also will have hard copies available at the pool.

Notice from the pool: 

1)Swimmers will not be allowed in the pool until a coach is present. Please wait outside the pool entrance until a coach has arrived.

2)Please limit your shower use. Swimmers have been reportedly taking long showers. Save water and limit showers to 5 minutes.


Equipment Order Day, Friday September 14th

This Friday is our team equipment order day, hosted by NorCal Swim Shop. Our guest vendor will set up their mobile shop outside of the pool from 5-7pm. NorCal will offer a team price. Swimmers are encouraged to order their gear on Friday before or after practice. To accommodate all groups, Senior I & II swimmers will end their swim workout at 6:30. All swimmers will have a group social activity and treated to ice cream after their swim workout.

Look over the list of Equipment Needs for each group (attached).
