What is Big Fish / Little Fish? – A fun program designed to unite and strengthen the White Eagle Warriors swim team by partnering older and younger swimmers.

Who’s involved? – All interested swimmers will be paired with a teammate on June 12th.

Who’s the Big Fish and who’s the Little Fish? – For the most part, the ‘Little’ fish will be a swimmer of age 10 and below.  Thus, the ‘Big’ fish will be a swimmer from ages 11-18.  We will pair one Little fish with one Big fish.

What do I do in the program? - Each week, we will have a small task to complete for your corresponding Big/Little fish.  Some of these tasks may include:

·         Designing a poster to help cheer on your Big/Little fish during his/her races

·         Create a motivational card to pump up your Big/Little fish for the meet

·         Treat your Big/Little fish to their favorite candy in order to get energized for his/her race

Why are we starting the Big/Little fish program? – Because it is awesome having that extra support and friend on the swim team.  GO WARRIORS!

If you want to participate, but cannot attend on June 12, please notify Coach Lauren

Meet begins

 

What is Time Trials? – It is an important pre-season meet that all swimmers should attend.  Team eligibility will be determined at this meet.  All 7/8 and 6 & Under swimmers must be able to swim 25 yards (the length of the pool) without touching the bottom or sides of the pool or lane lines.

Time Trials is a great run through for new swimmers and their families to familiarize them with meet procedures as well as an opportunity to establish base times for our dual meets.  All swimmers will swim freestyle and backstroke. 

** VERY IMPORTANT **  ALL SWIMMERS are expected to attend Time Trials.  You will need to sign up your swimmer(s) to attend this meet using the online meet sign up process just as you would for any of the other swim meets.

The coaches will be using these initial times to evaluate your child’s swimming abilities and determine goal setting for your child. 

Team T-shirts and swim caps will also be distributed on this day. 

If you absolutely cannot attend Time Trials, please notify Coach Lauren – [email protected] so she can determine another means to evaluate your swimmer. 

As always, please email me ([email protected] for team/admin related questions or Coach Lauren [email protected] for practice/meet related questions)

 

Thanks and have a great week -

Janet

Go Warriors!
