Tryouts are over and it is very awesome to see such a high level of interest in our program. We had 80 new swimmers attend the four days of tryouts, so it is safe to say that we will have a lot of new faces to replace our teammates that moved on last year.
Squads and training days:
By the end of this week we would like to have all of our training lanes set within our age group squads. To do this we need to know what training days you would prefer. We will do everything we can to try and accommodate everyone’s first choice. Please note that if you are training two days a week, the best combinations are Monday and Wednesday or Tuesday and Thursday. Three days a week is best to swim on Monday/Wednesday/Friday. Four days a week is Monday/Tuesday/Thursday/Friday. Above that we get to see you everyday.
If you have not already informed me, or your age group coach, of your preferred days, then please do so a.s.a.p.
Monday September 1st during training times at the 50m pool. Come and order everything you need for your swimming year.
Panther Kickoff Gala & Dinner September 12th (2:30 to 5:30)
Fun 50’s and 25’s swimming for all team members to kick off the year. Casual dinner to follow at the pool. Please sign up on the website under the swim meet tab.
Patana Tiger Prawn Meet (8 & under only) September 27th
Great fun meet for our 8 and under swimmers to get their feet wet and practice the process of a swim meet in a non-competitive environment. The races are timed, but not scored. Please sign up on our website under the swim meet tab.
That is all for now, see you on deck!
