FRIDAY NIGHT AT THE RACES is THIS FRIDAY!

Who: For all swimmers in all groups from all pools

What: The Race Nights occur on Friday nights.  Each swimmer gets to choose two events to race with ribbons provided at the end of each heat.  We ask for parent volunteer timers to help record at the meet (available to sign-up on the website.)  The meets usually last 45-60 minutes with pizza and juice for all at the conclusion of the event.  The setting is low key, fun and a great opportunity to lose the butterflies and learn how to handle a competitive setting.

Where: PHS

When: Check-in from 4:30-5, warm-up with your group from 5-5:20, racing begins at 5:30 sharp

RSVP: YOU MUST RSVP ONLINE TO THE RACE NIGHTS (so we can order enough food and ribbons for all.)

 

PHS SWIMMERS WHO START PRACTICE BEFORE 5:30

Since we share the pool with the PHS Water Polo team, it is VERY IMPORTANT that we stay OFF the pool deck until they are done with practice.  If the lane lines are OUT and they are tossing the balls around, then they are in the middle of the practice and we should NOT be on the pool deck.  If the lanelines are all in (or they are pulling them back in), we are free to come onto the pool deck as their practice is finishing up.  Gold, JV/JV+, Varsity and Senior swimmers who have practice starting at “5:15”, please meet outside the pool gates near the bathroom until we are given the all clear to come inside and get started.  

 

TEAM EVENTS

We have quite a few RSVPs due TODAY for upcoming events happening over the next few weeks. If your swimmer would like to join us for one of the many team events/meets we have this season, please be sure to log into the team site, click on "events", then scroll thru what we have to offer.  By clicking on the event title, you can read more about it before changing your reply from blank to YES. Some events are for specific groups or “qualifiers”, others are open to all swimmers in all groups.  If you are uncertain if an event pertains to your swimmer, please read the description and then email me here if you are unclear.  We’d love for you to join us when you can!
