Annual Meeting Friday, October 12

The Club's Annual Meeting will be Friday, October 12 at 5:30pm in the grass by the Learn To Swim Pool. This is a parent-only event. We look forward to seeing you there. Questions? Please contact

Zone 1 South Meets Only
We have taken all NON–Zone 1 South meets off our meet schedule. This decision was due to the fact that any Non Zone meets SCSC enters, we must provide Swim Officials to help with the operations of the meet. Since we currently do not monitor or assign meet officials, we are removing these meets from our schedule. So, please do not enter any meets that are not in Zone 1 South. Thank you for your understanding on this matter. If you have any questions please contact Dave Meck at

Volunteer Hours
If you have done any volunteering or timing, please note that your hours cannot be entered until October, when all the group changes have been made in the system. Thanks for your patience.

Streamline Swimming!
ATTENTION SWIMMERS, PARENTS AND COACHES! SCSC national swimmer and 2008 Olympic Trials qualifier Travis Jepson has developed an iPhone "Streamline Swimming" app for swimmers, parents and coaches. You can store and track all your training and competition events times and data, entering personal best times or entire training sets.  You can use the app's graphing mechanic to display how you have been swimming, compering competition times to practice times. The app also allows you to be able to track all weight training exercises by muscle group, you can even add your own custom exercises.  Streamline Swimming also allows you to share and compare exercises or swim events. Another primary focus of the app is goal setting.  You can track your personal, academic and athletic goals with this app.
Find out what works for you as a swimmer! Get it here:

- We will have a volunteer activity on Saturday, October 20th from 11:00am-1:00pm. Please let me know if you cannot make this ASAP. More info to come in the October Bitter Truth.
- We will be having a workout with PASA this Saturday at the ISC, thus the modified time.
- We will not be having dryland for this week only and will begin the second week of October.
Be ready for the month of October.Trust in what you can do; trust in what we're doing as a team.
It is not enough that we do our best; sometimes we must do what is required.”
Winston Churchill
