Sioux Falls Results: Brookings Swimmers had an outstanding meet this past weekend! Out of 62 swims (5 were first time swims (i.e. NT's), Brookings swimmers swam 56 Season Bests (90%) and 52 Personal Bests (84%)! Awesome Swimming!!! Also, Congratulations to Grace Davis who made an Automatic Zone Cut (AAA time) in the 11-12 Girl's 200 Breast!
Zone Update: Here's information emailed by Wendy to Club
Contacts... The fee has not been finalized yet as we are
waiting to hear back from a couple of bus companies with quotes,
but I decided to go ahead and open the registration for Zones so
that your swimmers can get started on the process. I
believe all of the necessary forms are on the event page and can be
filled out and e-mailed to me at Wendy2you@hotmail.com (please put Zones 2017 in
the subject line). If there are any additional forms
that need to be filled out, I will let you know as soon as
possible. Please let your swimmers
know that they can start registering now. Please remind
swimmers that they need to register whether they are a new or
returning swimmer to Zones/All-Stars. Also, once they have
been approved for membership, they will have to go back in and
commit to the event. We are working on
setting up a team store with Splash Multi-Sport that will enable
families to order extra gear as well as enter the correct sizes for
the gear that comes with the team fee. I will send out
that link and information as soon as it is available. I
would also like the swimmers to fill in shirt and short size when
they register so that I can cross-reference and make sure I have
sizes for everyone. We are in need of
chaperones for all age groups, so please encourage parents of
anyone attending to apply to be a chaperone. It is best
if this decision is done as soon as possible so that their
background checks are back and USA Swimming membership is approved
well in advance. This application can also be e-mailed
to me at email@example.com .
