Hello all Panthers,
Registration is finally closed and we now have our team set for the first semester. This week the coaches will finalize their squad selections and we would ask that you solidify your training schedule with your coach. Once your training days have been chosen please stick with them. Please do not change later without first contacting me and the squad coach.
Next thing we all need to do is sign up for the Kick Off Gala and Dinner on Sept 12th. See all important information below. Last year we had 90% of our team participate in this event…so let’s beat that number this year!
New This Year: Early Reslease days for 2018-19:
From now on we will not change training times on these days. Times will stay exactly the same. 2:35-3:35 (10 and under), 3:35-5:00 (11 and over) and 3:45-4:45 for Jr. Panther
Jr. Panther’s go back to 25m pool this Wednesday (Sept 5th):
Enjoy your new pool…it looks great. The new flooring will not be put on until the raining season ends. It needs to be installed in completely dry conditions.
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!
Family Dinner Link for Kick Off Dinner on Sept. 12th (please sign up yes or no)
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.

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.
