Hello all Panthers,
Tryouts are completed and we had just over 60 new swimmers looking to become Panther Swim Team Members! We are so happy to have so much new blood joining our squads. If you see a new face on deck or in the water, please make the effort to say hi and welcome them to our swim family.
Our official registration closes this Friday, so please register if you have not done so. After Friday, if you are not registered the system will suspend your account and it is very difficult to re-activate your family.
Coach Day going for American Swim Coach’s Level 5:
From Sept 3-7 I will be gone to California to study and the write the exam for ASCA’s highest level of coaching. I will still be available via email so please don’t hesitate to contact me if you need anything…wish me luck!
First Event of the Year: Panther Kick Off Gala and Dinner (Sept 12th):
This is a must for all swimmers and family members to start the year off right.
2:35-4:30: There is a fun swim meet with just our team members at the 50m pool.
4:30: Dinner for all swimmers and family members.
5:00: Parent information session for new and old swim families and Dodge ball game with coaches for swimmers (aka babysitting).
Swim Caps and Team Shirt Pick Up:
There will be a table set up at this event for you to pick up your free swim cap and team t-shirts. You get one set of these per year with the team fees. If you have already picked them up from them then please do not pick up a second set.
Team Swim Suits:
Team swim suits can also be purchased during this time. They are 1000 baht per suit (this is actual cost of producing the suit) If you paid for suit during registration then please bring receipt.
Volunteers half full so far…we still need many more!
Without parent volunteers, we cannot run these fun events for our swimmers.
PARENT VOLUNTEERS: Beside the pink button is the blue “Job Sign-up” button. Click on that, then read the jobs needed and then click on the button beside the job you want to do…Easy-Peasy.
