Good afternoon-

SUCCESS ON ALL LEVELS!

  • 65 Kids from our team swam great! 14 from minis, 19 from development, 24 from Jr groups and 8 from Sr. groups.
  • We had swimmers in their first meet ! first time off the blocks! first time for a team cheer!
  • Volunteers did great!
  • Coaches did great!
  • Food was awesome!
  • National anthem a capella was awesome!

I want to thank all of you for making it all great first meet experience. Don’t forget our next meet will be the 16th of December and we will welcome back all of your help and more since we will have not only our team, but 3 other teams swimming!  We will need 2x a many helpers and 2x as many hands on deck!! Over 150 kids will be here competing. 

Apologies for the scoreboard glitch…we are seeking tech help for that!

And…  We are almost ½ way there with the $$ for a iPad for Central!!  If you would like a retro tee or want to make a small donation, please let me know.

Upcoming MEETs

MYST Pentathlon- November 11, Grand Haven High School, It is posted and you can enter now until Monday 16th -This is for all swimmers, all levels. It’s called a pentathlon, meaning all strokes can be swum, fly, back, breast, free and the 100 IM, but it is not mandatory. You can simply choose which ones you want to do. Events are $4 each. You will be billed for your child's events the day after we submit entries. Please read meet packet in its entirety- to give you more info. 8 &under swim 25’s, all above - swim 50’s.

We hope to set up some carpooling and a team dinner for after.  (perhaps a bus!! Would be fun-very costly tho- if you think you’d be interested  lmk- we could still reserve- $40 per swimmer-perhaps a goal for next year...)

RAYs Classic- November 17-19, Grand Rapids Rays YMCA.  Entries are NOT POSTED YET...but If you know you are going to attend, please make sure you get your hotel reservation done. The team hotel is posted under events. If you know you are headed to this meet (JR. groups and above, who have been to a travel meet is probably better). You can also elect for one day if that fits your family plan.  I will alert you when this meet opens up.

if you have any questions, please ask your swimmer's coach or contact me
