End of Summer/Break/Back in ATC/Tryouts

And now, for an all encompassing News Item covering the End of Summer, the Summer Break, Returning to ATC for the Fall/Winter Season, and When and Where tryouts are going to be held again:

End of Summer:

We will be ending our outdoor swim season on August 15th this year. The teachers (meaning us Coaches) will be reporting back to our schools on August 16th to resume Inservice Training prior to the beginning of the upcoming academic year. There will be NO PRACTICE beginning August 16th and we will head directly into our Summer Break.

Summer Break:

Our Summer "Break" will start on August 16th, and continue through September 4th (Labor Day). We will resume practices on September 4th at the ATC on Cornell at the hours and days listed below. We will be out of the water during these two weeks for all of our teams - however Bronze, Silver, and Gold teams WILL have dryland practices starting again on Friday, August 17th at ATC from 5-6pm. Please make plans to be there if you are on those levels.

Returning to ATC for Fall/Winter Seasons:

We will return to the Amarillo Town Club for our fall/winter seasons. Please make sure your memberships are up to date so that you don't have any issues coming in to get to the pool. The planned schedule is as follows:

Red - Tuesday & Thursday 5:00-6:00pm (This is subject to change)

Blue - Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 5:00-6:00pm

BSG - Monday thru Friday 6:00pm-7:30pm, currently options are being weighed on when to have dryland practices for these teams


If you are planning on trying out for the team, please come on a Tuesday or Thursday at 5:00pm to try out. The test parameters are listed under the FAQ seection of our webpage. If you are already an ATC member, there is nothing to do but show up at that time and days and let a coach know you're there for the swim test. If you are not a member of ATC, you will have to request a "day pass" to get into the club. Please call Amarillo Town Club to arrange for a day pass.
