I have had several questions regarding next week's Divisional Meet, so I thought I would give everyone a little information. The Divisional Meet is just like our regular season meets, except there will be the four teams in our Division competing instead of two. Every swimmer may be in this meet - there are no qualifying times. There is a requirement that the swimmer has competed in two regular season previously. They may still swim exhibition if they haven't swum in two meets. Exhibition just means they cannot score, but their time is legal - it will count towards qualifying for All-Stars.
All swimmers may attend morning and evening practices next week, July 15 - 19. That is the last week of regular practices. After that, only the All-Star Meet swimmers will practice. On Friday, July 19, we will have our last Fun Friday, with the entire team together from8 - 10 am. This will be a fun time to get ready for our last team meet. Then onSunday, July 21 we have our team picnic and awards. I hope you all will be there for this fun event.
* * If you are planning on going to Divisionals, will you please sign up immediately? I am going to be out of town Monday and Tuesday, and the entry is due early. I would like to work on the entry on Friday (tomorrow). If you are NOT going to Divisionals, will you please declare that as well? That will help me to set up the entry.
Thank you all for being great parents to a really wonderful group of kids. They are a pleasure to coach.
