Swim Team News – May 2016

This email is going out to all club members, but most future swim team emails will be sent only to swim team families. Please disregard if this information doesn’t apply to you. Thanks.


Welcome back! The pool is opening soon and looking great. Everyone is ready for summer.

This year’s coaching staff will consist of myself, Pete Colella, Mike McCloskey, Claire McCloskey, Kaite Davidson, and Josaiah Clark. We are all anxious and ready to help our team to another successful season. Let any of us know at any time if you have questions or concerns about practices, meets, goals, or anything else. We look forward to seeing you at our first practice on May 25th.

Evening Practice Times (5/25 – 6/24)

8 & U  6:45-7:15pm

9-10  7:15-7:50pm

11-12   7:50-8:30pm

13+  8:30-9:15pm

New swimmers and parents should plan on attending a 6:00pm orientation on Tuesday, May 24th.  We will cover swimmer and parent expectations, workout and meet procedures, volunteer hours, team suits/sweats, and any other topics that come up. Returning swimmers do not need to attend.

Our website is a huge help to both parents and swimmers. Meet results will be posted online, along with historical times for each swimmer from previous seasons. It is an excellent tool to help track progress and measure your success. Soon, you will be able to register you kids for the team online and also sign up to volunteer at swim meets as well.

There are three time trials scheduled for your convenience –June 11th, 16th, & 18th.  All swimmers are strongly encouraged to attend at least one. We also have a “mini-meet” scheduled for June 21st. Most of our younger swimmers should consider attending this meet.

This year Sylvia’s Swimwear will be our apparel provider.  Suits, personalized caps, and team gear will be available to order online. Our team suit is the same style and design as in previous years. We’ll have a “fit kit” at the pool so that you can find your correct size. Suit orders should be made by the end of May to ensure timely delivery. Sylvia’s will also be at our June 11th Time Trials for you to preview any items before placing your team gear orders.

I look forward to seeing you at the pool. Please let me know if you have any questions.
