June 6, 2021
This week we will have swim practice on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. The schedule is the same time as last week--
6 & : 4:30-5:00
7-10 year : 5:00-5:45
11 & older: 5:45-6:15
Wear a practice suit, not your new team suit. The team suit is only for picture day and meets.
Wednesday (5:30-9:00), we will have Photos and a Potluck Dinner—no practice. And we will set up a space for team items (practice suits, fins, etc.) that families can bring to donate to other families. A Genius is posted on our page—Flying Fish—to sign up for what you want to bring. If you are uncomfortable sharing food, please bring a family picnic. Bring beach chairs and for those of you who have them—a pop up tent.
If you haven’t joined that page, please do. We post things there first! The other place to look for dates/times is the calendar on our website—www.swimflyingfish.com.
Thank you to everyone who helped make our suit and sales a success on Thursday night! Almost every family and we will have the final few set up with their suits soon! AS A REMINDER, if you are interested in purchasing the t-shirt or tank top, order forms are due by noon on Monday, June 7 th . I will be at the pool today (Sunday) from 2-6 and will have order forms with me. Or you can download it from our page. I will also have some car stickers/magnets with me if you wish to purchase those ($3 each.)
If you haven’t gotten your fins yet, please order them soon! Info on Fins is posted on our website under NEWS. Coach usually wants them by our first morning practice.
Thank you to everyone who has already gone to training or is doing the online course to become a Stroke and Turn judge! If you haven’t taken the are willing to be a Stroke and Turn judge (and have the best view of the meet!) you can go to the training on Monday, June 7 th from 7-9 at the Great Bridge Swim & Racquet or take the online training at www.strokeandturn.com . There is a $30 fee for the online course that we will reimburse you for when you give me your completion certificate. In person training is free and you just show up! We want to have 8-10 trained Stroke and Turn judges before our first meet on Saturday, June 19 th.
Weather is up in the air this week. We swim in the rain (as your swimmers experienced last week) unless there is thunder/lightening. If we cancel we will send out a text and post it on our Flying Fish page. I have sent out one text last week—a swimsuit sales reminder on Thursday a.m. If you didn’t receive it, check in with Jane so she can see if we need to reset it for you to confirm your number. We don’t text often, but when we do, you probably want to receive it!
Looking forward to a great week! I love seeing all the enthusiasm! Our team really focuses on progress, not perfection. I am confident that each of your swimmers will feel a great sense of accomplishment in the coming weeks!
As always, if you have any questions, please give me a call or shoot me a text or email! See you soon!
