Hope everyone is enjoying their break and looking forward to the start of school next week! Here's some updates for the upcoming season:
Swimmer Graduations (Group Moves): We sent emails to those we would like to "graduate" to another group two weeks ago. If you have questions, please contact Barry or Wendy.
Practice Schedule: PDF of the upcoming season (Sept-May) is now posted in Calendar Section (above the actual calendars). The schedule was more difficult to figure out this year since we're adding 15-minutes to the Gold & Platinum practice times and made some changes to the Junior Group structure. We're still working on: 1) Dryland Schedule for Gold, Platinum & Junior (times added before or after schedule water time) and will update the schedule once finalized; 2) AM's for Seniors on Mon/Fri as well as a PM Dryland. These will be posted next week.
Meet Schedule: PDF posted for what we know right now. We anticipate adding 1-2 meets shortly.
New Swimmer Tryouts: Pass the Word! New Swimmer Tryouts will be held on September 6 & 7 (Tue-Wed), from 5-7pm at High School. Swimmers can come either day and anytime within the 5-7pm timeframe. Should take about 10-minutes, depending on number of swimmers being evaluated at that time.
Stroke Clinic: A Stroke Clinic will be held during the first two weeks of the season for both returning swimmers and possible new swimmers. September 7-9 (Wed-Fri) and Sept. 12-16 (M-F): 12&Over's= 4:45-6pm and 11&Under's= 6-7pm. You can come during any of these sessions, regardless of swim group.
Swim America: We'll be posting the class schedules for September through May next week. We are planning on a September 20 start. We are also working on a separate sign-up site for Swim America so registrations & payment can be done online.
Thank you 'Back In Motion'... I neglected to acknowledge & thank Dr's Rodney & Shelly Brandenburger of Back In Motion for donating the stretch cords used in Gold & Platinum Dryland Program this summer. Thank you!!!
