Weekly News (May 1-6)

Hello all Panthers,

We are down to our last month of training for the school year, we are going to pack lots into this last 5 weeks, so don't miss any training days. We will have the Pentathlon meet on May 13th and our year-end sprint fest/Awards dinner on May 24th. Please sign up for both if you have not already.

We have over 20 families signed up to swim in relays at sprint fest, if you want to participate with your swimmers let me know asap.


Important Notes:


Friday May 5th, Coronation Day (No school/Practice):

Feel free to come another day this week to make up for Friday if that is your regular training day.


Add training day in May for FREE:

If you are not sure if your swimmer is not ready for an extra day of training, you can try out this month for free. Just speak with your coach about what day would be best and then try it out for the next 5 weeks.


Pentathlon Swim Meet with ISB, Patana and ANS: May 13th (half day meet):

This is our last meet of the year, last chance to get those PB times just a little bit lower before the summer.

This meet will take half a day and is does not have any awards, it is truly just a friendship meet between 3 really good Bangkok swim teams.

We will also take our whole team photo at this time, so we would really like to see most of our team come out for this meet.

We need a couple more volunteers to help with the meet, please sign up if you have not volunteered this year.


Colgate Tri-athlon (May 10th):

May 2nd is deadline to sign up



Squad Award Days during practice May 22/23:

With almost 250 swimmers on our team, we cannot get through all the awards we would like to at a single evening awards dinner. Our coaches have identified many different awards they would like to give out to their swimmers. Because of this, we will be holding squad award days during practice on both Monday, May 22nd and Tuesday May 23rd. Please attend one of these two practices.



Year End Celebration and Awards Dinner…Sign Up Today (May 24th 2:30-6:00)

For those of you new to the team, this is the event you do not want to miss. Last year we had 95% of the team attend and it was tons of fun.

Here is what we have:

2:30-4:30: Family Swim Meet (sign up on webpage today)

All parents and siblings invited to swim with coaches and swimmers. We have family relays, 25m “sprints” with your kids and the head to head matches with the coaches. Last year we had over 30 parents take part, please let’s see if we can top that this year. You can put together your own relay with other families or just your own (like the Peters family with Mom/Dad and the two girls). Sign up today by emailing me your relay or individual events you would like to swim.

4:45-6:00: Dinner and Awards

This year we will be serving a delicious meal and handing out awards in the gym here at the New Sports Center (same gym we use for swim meets). The food is fantastic, the entertainment is sometimes funny and the kids have so much fun. A dinner sign up link will be coming out soon…so please everyone put this date on your calendar TODAY!
