STAR Swimmers & Parents,
As we enjoy Thanksgiving Weekend and start to look towards Nationals next week I wanted to go ahead and get everyone our practice schedule for next week so that you could plan accordingly. Obviously, with us hosting Nationals next week at the GAC there will be some changes in schedule but we are trying to minimize those and hope you can work with us to make sure we keep the everyone in the water with Triad Tropic coming up the following weekend.
Next Wednesday, 12/3, is the first day of Nationals and the day of the Greensboro Swim Fest. On this day we are not going to have afternoon practice SC or in Greensboro so that everyone can attend the “Swim Fest” which will be from 3:00-6:00 in the Special Events Center and then go to the first night of Nationals. We will have $2 off coupons for everyone for Wednesday night and you get that discount through NC Swimming every time you purchase a ticket at the door. There are two events that night, the 200 Medley and 800 Free relays, which should provide for an exciting start to the meet.
The Swim Fest is designed to be a fun event to promote swimming and so we would like everyone to attend. There is no charge and there will be booths with games and give away items, large blow up obstacle courses, athlete interviews and a visit from Santa for pictures and lists. This would be a great event to bring a friend to just so they can learn more about the sport of swimming and have some fun!! Please plan on coming, bringing a friend and sharing this information with others that you think would like to come and have a good time!!
For our practice schedule next week we will have our normal practices at SportsCenter (morning and afternoon with the exception of Wed. afternoon). These may be an option for some of you from Greensboro that have a conflict with any adjusted practices.
In Greensboro our schedule will be as follows:
Monday – regular morning, home school and afternoon/evening at GAC
Tuesday – regular morning at GAC; regular afternoon time at Greensboro College
Wednesday – No Practice (There is a morning practice at SC)
Thursday – No Morning practice (there is AM practice at SC); Regular practice times at Greensboro College in the afternoon/evening (including Home School)
Friday – Regular afternoon practice schedule at Greensboro College
Saturday – Regular morning practice schedule at Greensboro College
Please note, when entering Greensboro College please do so through the door to the side of the building off of the main parking lot near the entrance off of Market Street and check in at the front desk before going back to the pool area.
We appreciate your cooperation with us during this week which will prove to be both exciting and hectic!
Please check with your swimmers coach if you have any questions or call or text me if needed.
Thanks again and have a Great Thanksgiving!
