Weekly News (Aug 26-31)

Hello all Panthers,


Assessments are complete and I am happy to report that we have over 300 swimmers on the Panther Swim Team for the first time in ISB history. Glad to be part of this great big happy family.

This is the last week for registration, but I think most of you have registered so things are looking good.

Let’s get our training days sorted this week and then we can get the year underway.

With this influx of new swimmers, there may be a lot of squad movement this week and even into next week. So the coaches will keep the lines of communication open.


Important Notes:
