Conference/End of Season Info
July 18, 2016
We have had a great season so far and I'm looking forward to our conference meets! Please be sure your swimmers are getting plenty of rest before their final meet.
This Friday 7/22nd is our B conference pre-planning Car decorating, team meeting, dinner and a movie. We will be having a pasta dinner with the help of Christina Wiseman and the board. Please consider volunteering to bring some food to share. If you have any questions on donations please e-mail email@example.com
This event will take place in the parking lot of the Woodridge Park District building on Center Drive. I hope you are all able to join us. The schedule is below:
4:15pm - Car decorating in parking lot
4:45pm - movie inside for team meeting
5-7pm - dinner and a movie
This same schedule will take place next Friday 7/29 for our A Conference Pre-Meet car decorating, dinner and a movie.
B Conference is this Saturday at Cypress Cove. We have the first warm-up time since it is our home pool. Please be there ready to get in at 6:30am.The schedule for Saturday is below:
6:30-7am - Sea Lions Warm-ups both pools, have caps and goggles on ready to go.
8:00am - line-up in our team area for the parade
8:30 - Parade of the teams & opening ceremony
9am - meet starts
Our practice times will change slightly for a couple groups next week. They will all take place at the program pool during the following times:
7-8am - 11 & overs (please arrive and plan to be ready to enter the water at 7am!)
8-9am - 9-10 age groups
9-10am - 8& unders
If anyone wants to come at 10am to work with me on any specific skills or race strategies, I will be available.
I have not received our meet schedule yet for A conference but it will be similar. I will share it as soon as we hear.
Heat Sheets will be available for purchase at the meets. Be sure to let your child's coach know if something has changed and they are not able to swim in B conference or swim any of their events. I will need to scratch them from the meet or events prior to the start. Any scratches during the meet (meaning a swimmer misses their race) will count negatively on the teams final outcome and could affect our score at A conference too.
Best of all, our end of year party is the Saturday evening of A conference 7/30. There will be lots of awards to pick up. The pool will be open for fun, ice cream will be served and there will be parent/family relays, so bring your suit. If you have any yard games you would like to bring for older kids or adults to play with during the party feel free to bring them to the pool that night.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you for all you do to make this team a great experience.
Go Sea Lions!
