Weekly news (August 22-27)

Hello all Panthers,

We have almost 80 new swimmers tryout for our swim team this year, so we are happy to see the love for swimming continuing to grow in our ISB community. I personally can’t wait to see everyone out for the first time at the 2016 Panther Kickoff Gala and Dinner. See details below, but sign up on the webpage today. All panthers including Jr. Panther Cubs are invited.


Important Notes:


Last week of registration, please complete ASAP:

Last week we registered about 90% of our swimmers, so we are doing great. If you have not registered, please do it now! We will close registration at the end of the week.


Schedule for this year:

As all of you are experiencing this year, there are some schedule changes to the school timetables. So to make sure we all know when practice is and where, here is a table to make it a little simpler. This can be downloaded on our website in the documents and information section.

Kick off gala (September 2nd) Don’t miss it:

This event is for all swimmers including Jr. Panthers. It is the first time trials of the year and gives us all an idea of where we are to start the year. Immediately, after school we will have time trial swim meet (just our team) at the 50m pool. After the swim we will have a team dinner at the 50m pool, it is very yummy. After the mealtime, the swimmers are invited to play dodge ball in the gym with their coaches. At this time, we will have a welcome Parents meeting upstairs in the classroom. This will be a general information session for all parents; new and returning. We will also do a short tutorial on our website and how to use it properly to sign up for meets/team events, volunteering and check all of your swimmers results.

This is a great way to start off the year; I hope to see all of the team out for this.


Panther Swim Leadership Team for this Season:

This season the team is trying something brand new. We have put together an 8 person (High School Swimmers) Leadership Team (LT). The purpose of this group is to provide mentorship for all of our age groups. In the past, we have had many mulit-age group functions, like the one coming up on the 2nd. But we have never organized it to this level before. The swimmers participating on the Panther Swim Team Leadership Team are:

Um Chavalitumrong, Maddie Laidlaw, Veronica Itinger, Grace O’Connell, Chanon Sawintara, Tar Tar Jarusinchai, Tee Amornkasemwong, and Om Samanthai.

Good luck LT!
