Hello all Panthers,
Summer is over and I am sure that we are all looking to get right back to school and of course into the water. Good luck with your first week of school and we can’t wait to see you all again at the pools. This week we have drop in swims for returning swimmers in the usual time slots (2:35-3:35 for 10 and under, 3:35-5:00 for 11 and over).
Registration is also open so please sign up ASAP.
25m pool update:
Our 25m pool is going to look amazing when it is completed, but sadly it is not quite ready. For this reason, Jr. Panther swim squads will be joining us at the 50m pool for the month of August and then returning to the 25m pool when it is finished (September 3rd they promise me).
Tryouts for new swimmers: August 20- 23:
2:30 at the 50m pool. All ages come at this time. If you know somebody who has swum on another team before, please tell them to contact me directly as I only need their current times for the tryouts.
2018-19 Event schedule is now on the website:
Find it under documents and information.
Panther Swim Team Thanya Pura Winter Camp (December 15-17th) Sign up on the website now:
This Winter Camp has been a huge success over the past 2 years. It is a great combination of swimming, dryland training, team bonding and just tons of fun. Non-swimming activities include beach volleyball, ropes courses, team obstacle course races, sand castle building and beach soccer. The Thanyapura Health and Sports resort is a world class resort that offers every bit of fitness activity you could ever imagine. No swimming family members have full access to all these activities.
The camp is organized and run by our Panther Swim Team coaching staff; so this is a great opportunity to get to know your coaches on a whole new level.
You can find more details about booking rooms and cost on the website under “Meets and Events”, click on the winter camp event and it is all there.
Panther Swim Team Swim-a-thon (October 15th):
This has always been a very successful community event in the past. All ages join in the fun and even bring some friends out. This year our high school team is doing a Habitat for Humanity build on October 27th and will need all the funding we can get!
More details to come, but let’s start raising some funds!
