We are two weeks out from the BISAC Championships, the two squads that will represent ISB's Jr. and Sr. teams have been selected and notified. Just a reminder that our girls 8 and under and boys 13 and 14 squads are defeding champions. So we are hoping to expand on those 2 age groups winners and even make a run at one of the over all trophies this year. Let's just all do our best and see where we are at the end of the day.
For the next two weeks the BISAC Squad teams will be training together and preparing for the meet. If you have not been selected for the BISAC squads (this year), then you will have regular practices at regular times. Keep training hard and your turn will come.
Tuesday early dismissal (March 15th):
All practices one hour earlier.
Water Polo Match Part of Season 3 Spirit Day (Friday March 18th):
Regular Practices will be canceled this Friday March 18th. Our Varsity Water Polo team will be participating in the Season 3 Spirit Night by playing matches against Patana International School at the 50m pool. Please come out and cheer on the Panther Water Polo team. There are many familiar faces on this team.
BISAC Teams Practice at 25m pool (March 15th):
Jr. team 2:25-3:25, Sr. Team 3:30-5:00
10 and under Panther Kick Off Meet: April 4th 2:30 to 3:30
Our coaches are always reminding swimmers of the importance kicking plays in a fast, successful stroke. So to emphasize this point, we are going to have a 10 and under “Kick Off” meet. This meet will be the traditional 25m and 50m races, except there will be no arms at all and they will just be kicking. With the younger swimmers you will be supriesed just how close to their real times their kicking times will be.
This meet will take place during practice time on April 4th. So if this is not your practice day, then please plan on attending any ways. Sign up on the web page today.
Manila meet to be canceled if more swimmers do not join:
Currently we have only 5 swimmers committed to traveling for the ISM meet in Manila. As we need 8 swimmers to travel with the coach and we have hotel rooms on hold until this Friday. We will need to know if there are any more families looking to travel to this meet by the end of this week. If we do not get the 8 swimmers, we will have to advise Manila that we may only be sending independent swimmers with a parent.
So if you interested please sign up or contact me directly.
