This is the MAC News for Monday, June 30th. 

There are some practice schedule changes that affect several groups for today.  Both Senior Red and Black practices for TOMORROW have been cancelled due to the large number of swimmers going to Hershey Park.  To make up for some of the missed practice, there will be an afternoon practice from 3:00-4:30 pm in the indoor pool at Hood TODAY.  All Novice, Senior Prep and Masters practices for THURSDAY have been cancelled.  Instead, all Novice groups (I, II, and III) will swim from 6:00-7:30 pm in the indoor pool and Senior Prep and Masters will swim from 7:45-9:00 pm in the outdoor pool TODAY.  Please note, there is a 15 minute overlap with already scheduled events for both the Novice and Senior Prep and Masters practices, so dry-lands or some other out of the water activity will take place for the first 15 minutes of these sessions.  This will be a one time change for this week only!  Also, be aware that the practices scheduled for Novice and Senior Prep and Masters on Tuesday, July 1st will run as scheduled. 

Here are some updates regarding practice on July 4th.  Senior Red and Black will swim from 7:30-9:30 am in the outdoor pool.  Age Group I and II practice will be cancelled for the day.  Senior White practice will be normal from 6:30-8:30 am at Whittier.  Also, be on the lookout for information regarding a possible Sunday (July 6th) practice for Senior Red and Black.  Remember, all groups are off on Saturday, July 5th.
