Swim Team News – 7/7/12


Aqua vs. Club

Once again – for the 3rd time – Aqua vs. Club ends in a tie.

Final score – 1,567 – 1,567


Thanks to everyone who came out and braved the elements for this big party.

Over 110 swimmers (plus many parents, siblings, and coaches) competed. It was especially rewarding to see so many families racing with/against each other. The Watermelon Relay was especially competitive. Lots of smiles and laughter all around!


Special thanks to Lifeguard Bobbie and the Senior Spirit Squad for helping with the “limited edition” Aqua vs. Club shirts. We hope to see them being worn year after year.


Spirit Squad Activities


Aqua Club tattoos will soon be available for purchase in the office. Parents, don’t worry, these are only temporary. Thanks to Donna Hunter for helping to organize this.


Morning Games & Posters

Come and hang in the clubhouse with some of our senior swimmers next Tuesday between 9:00 and 11:00am. Bring your favorite board game and some creative art ideas!


Individual Swimmer Photos

Come up to the clubhouse before or after workout on Thursday, 7/12. We’ll be taking pictures of each swimmer – both for fun and to help our age group parents get to know you!


Team Pictures

Correction from the last email –

Be sure to sign up your swimmer for swim lessons, race classes, and Saturday clinics!

•Swim lesson instructors are fantastic and ready to help.

•Race classes are available as one or two week sessions.

Pancake Breakfast

Our annual swim team pancake breakfast is scheduled for Tuesday, 7/24. We’ll let the kids out of practice a bit early and let them pig out!

We’ll need plenty of volunteers to pull this off. Please visit the Team Unify Job page and let us know if you are available to help cook/serve/clean. Also – if you have a large griddle, we’d love to borrow it!


Home Meets

We have two home dual meets left. Thanks to all of the lifeguards and parents who helped set up and clean up from our first two. To help spread out the workload, we’ve added some specific setup/clean up jobs to our Team Unify Job Page. Please remember to volunteer!
