THIS WEDNESDAY AT PHS

We will be having dryland days for Race Team, JV, JV+ and Prep swimmers due to PHS water polo home games THIS WEDNESDAY, October 4. Swimmers should meet outside the pool gates near the bathroom for a dryland, cardio workout.  They should be in athletic shoes and “PE type” clothes. We invite all Race Team swimmers to attend earlier practices, as it gets VERY dark outside the pool gates and we will NOT have 7pm practice.  Those in the High School Prep group can swim with the XG Prep group OR join in the dryland workout from 5:15-6:15pm with the JV/JV+ group.

 

We will have have makeup practices for the PHS Monday/Wednesday Race Team swimmers on the following Fridays from 4:15-5:15pm: October 6

 

Other practice changes due to PHS pool closure:

Friday, October 13- V/S will swim in the morning, JV+, Prep and Gold 2 will be swimming at XG (time TBD)

Saturday, October 14- V/S, JV/JV+, Gold 2 and Prep will be swimming at XG (time TBD)

Saturday, October 21- JV/JV+, Gold 2 and Prep will be swimming at XG (time TBD)

MARIN MEET RECAP

A huge thank you to our parent volunteers who helped shuttle the swimmers up to Marin this weekend: Shannon Brannan, David Mayekawa Nicole Scales, Tim Thompson.  Our swimmers love this time to be with their friends, swim at a beautiful community college pool up north and dusting the cobwebs off their racing skills.  

 

After only 23 swim practices under our belts for the new season, we had FORTY SEVEN lifetime best times.  That is ELEVEN more best times than last year at the same time!
