AAA Team Update, 1/7


Hello AAA Families!

Welcome back and Happy New Year to all AAA swimmers & families!

We resume our normal workout schedule today for all groups.

Please note Coach Rick will be out of town till January 14th, Katie will be running the workouts for Blue & Gold group swimmers.

Coach Jesus & I just came back from the annual Pacific Coaches Clinic in Napa. We both learned a great deal and are excited to put it to work. One topic of the clinic that we will incorporate into our program is the importance of educating the parents as well as our swimmers into the culture of swimming. We realize this is one area we can improve on and am excited to include in our program offerings. We will meet as a staff and discuss how to best launch this in the New Year.

We are now in our Winter Quarter, Team dues are now past due and late fees have been assessed. You can now make on demand payments from your team account! Follow this 'how to" link for more info:
