Week of June 13


Good evening!

This will be an exciting week!  We have our first meet on Tuesday, June 15 at Preble County. Please read this email in its entirety as there is a lot of information about the meet and the week!

Practice this week:  We will have practice as usual, Monday through Friday, at our normal times.

Team t-shirts:  Our team t-shirts have arrived just in time for our first meet!  We will be handing them out during practice on Monday and Tuesday. 

Team pictures:  We will be taking team pictures on Friday, June 25.  We are asking everyone to arrive at 9:15am for the team picture.  Individual pictures will be taken after the team picture, followed by practice until 10:50am.  Envelopes will be handed out closer to picture day.

Kids Night Out:  Kids Night Out will be on Friday, June 18 from 7-9pm.  Join us for some food, fun, and games!  Cost is $5 for this optional event.  Please sign up on the bulletin board in the pool hallway.

Meet at Preble County:  Preble County is about 45 minutes away.  This is our furthest meet.  All of the other meets are closer.  Preble County Pool is located at 541 West Main Street, Eaton, OH 45320.

Time to arrive for the meet:   Please arrive no later than 5:15pm.  Swimmers will be in the water at 5:30 for warm-ups.

What to bring to the meet:  Goggles, 2-3 towels, swim cap, Sharpie (to write events on their arms), a sweatshirt/clothes to change into, plenty of water/Gatorade, and a cooler with food/snacks.  Families may also want to bring chairs and a tent or canopy.  Optional:  money for the concession stand.

When you arrive:  Please find the team.  We will have our banner on the fence.  Then check in with Coach Dylan or Coach Sarah.   They will direct you to the red board with the list of events.  The events will need to be written on the swimmer’s arm and then they will be off to warm-ups.

The announcer will be letting everyone know who should be at the clerk of course.  Please make sure your child is paying attention to what event is at clerk of course.

Please stay until the meet is over.  If you think your child is finished swimming for the evening, please check with the coach before leaving! Sometimes we have to switch swimmers around for the relays.

If you have any questions at the meet, please make sure you ask.  While we have many new families, we also have many families who have done this before who will be glad to help!

Jobs for the meet:  If your swimmer is attending the meet, please sign up to help!  All jobs will be explained to you and are easy to do.  We still need 9 additional volunteers! 

We are looking forward to a great week!  As always, please let me know if you have any questions!
