STEEL CITY AQUATICS FAMILY:

Awesome job to all our mini and distance swimmers this weekend at North Hills. Remember to sign up for the Mini Champs at Hampton. We’d love to see ALL our 8 and unders racing and hanging out together.

  • NEW STAFF: When you have a moment please welcome back Coach Jocelyn to our SF site and welcome former Steel City/Moon swimmer Coach Gannon to our Cornell site - we are so excited to continue to grow and add tremendous coaches to the program
  • TEAM SAFETY PROTOCOLS – please remember to keep yourselves and your teammates safe – if you are feeling sick in any way, please stay home
    • MOON SITE AND CORNELL SITE: The Cornell School District has now also made masks recommended but not required for all extracurricular activities on their campus. Please feel free to continue to wear your mask if that makes you more comfortable.
    • Bundle up, wear masks, stay safe – prepare for the weather – please make sure your athletes are dressed appropriately when they arrive as we see a lot of shorts and wet heads leaving the pool deck after practice
    • MOON 2 hour delays – if Moon has a 2 hr delay there will be no morning practice that day
    • Swimmers who are done with practice and waiting for rides or siblings to swim should wait on the benches at any of our locations. No swimmers or siblings should be playing around inside the facilities at any time. Thank you for your cooperation.
  • SCHEDULE CHANGES: Please be sure to keep an eye on emails, FaceBook, Instagram and all of the different ways we can reach you as schedules can change due to HS meets changing last minute, or to the weather – we will do our best to notify you as quickly as possible
    • We do have several changes at all sites due to hs home meets and other classes reserving pool time – please check your schedule carefully
  • CORNELL SITE PICKUP: thank you to everyone who has followed protocol at Cornell pickup – the safety of your swimmers is our number 1 priority
  • STEEL CITY AQUATICS DIVING: We are thrilled to be starting up our diving program this coming February and are pleased to welcome our new Head Diving Coach, Amy Rynn! We have known Coach Amy for a long time as she was a local standout diver who went on to compete for Pitt and then coached for many years with the Pitt Aquatic Club. Please stay tuned to your emails for more details to come!
  • ZRONI ROLLS: check your email for details of our current fundraiser – orders due January 24
  • HOLIDAY MAKE-UP PARTY!!!!! Keep an eye on your email for details but we are planning to get together this coming Saturday, January 29, at Moon and we hope everyone will be able to join us
  • TEAM SPONSORSHIP: We are still looking to help promote your business as you support Steel City Aquatics. Contact Jessica at [email protected]
  • MEETS 
    • ANSC Single Age for 9-14 year olds is a go and we are in
    • Hampton Dolphins Mini Champs/Distance Meet is now posted and open – due date is 1/24
    • if you are registered for a meet and you decide after the deadline closes that you can’t make it you are still responsible for your meet entry fees – we send a check to the meet host to cover our fees and to have our entry finalized – you can contact us in any emergency situations and we will see what we can do, but for the most part once the deadline has passed and you are committed, you are committed for any and all fees
  • GETTING TO KNOW YOUR STEEL CITY FAMILY
    • We are still working on a good time for a “holiday” party and also have some other socials in the works for the swimmers (and even some potential parent ones) so keep an eye on your emails
  • Remember to bring your equipment with you ever day, including a water bottle, and please make sure your name is on EVERYTHING as we often have items left
  • If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Coach Jeff at [email protected], or to Coach Clark at [email protected] if they are specific to the South Fayette site or to one of our amazing board members
  • HAVE AN AMAZING AND BLESSED WEEK!
