FRIDAY NIGHT AT THE RACES RESULTS COMING SOON

Thank you to all who attended Friday’s Race Night, especially those who volunteered!  We had a blast with your swimmers and look forward to inputting all the results into the database.  Those will be emailed out later this week (in case your swimmer would like to write their times on the back of their ribbons.)  Remember, this was not an “official” meet, meaning the times are just for us to hold onto and will not be entered into the USA Swimming database.  

 

UPCOMING OFF-SITE MEETS

The off site meets are opening for meet entries and are filling FAST!  To ensure that our swimmers get spots before the meet fills to capacity, it is important that we stick to the RSVP deadlines listed in the “upcoming events”.  While the October 28-29 meet RSVP is past due, there is still time to get signed up for the Nov 18-19 hosted by Osprey Aquatics (OAQ) at Willow Glen High School (RSVP by this Thursday, 9/21.)  This can be a great meet for new swimmers ESPECIALLY if it is sunny!  If your swimmer is enrolled in their very first session of the Race Team, make sure they try a Race Night or two before heading off to this biggers meets.  Off-site meets have 300-1000 people (quite a few more than our 100+ swimmers at Race Night.)  These off-site events are an additional cost (based on the number of days you choose to swim and number of events your swimmer is entered in.)  Usually $25-40 billed to your BAY account.  If you ever have questions about whether or not your swimmer should attend, please ask their coach OR email me here!
