Hello CAJ Families! Here’s some updated info for your week.   

 

UPCOMING MEETS

Our coaches would like to encourage more swimmers to sign up for our fall meets. The two that are currently open that CAJ will attend are:

  • 10/8-10/10 CCA Spooktacular – Roseville Aquatic Complex - this meet is open on Swim Connection. This meet does not allow “NT” no times for entries – please ask your swimmer’s coach for help choosing events or estimating entry times.
  • 11/5-7 RAD November Meet – Shasta College, Redding – this meet is also open on Swim Connection. This is a great meet offering swimmers trials and finals in events. Don’t be alarmed by the list of time standards on the meet sheet. If your swimmer does not meet a qualifying time, just choose to enter in “OPEN” events. Again, coaches and veteran swim parents can help you with Swim Connection.

 

  • SAVE THE DATE! 10/16 CAJ October meet – all CAJ swimmers should plan on attending our home meet at the PV Pool (located at Bidwell Junior High School) – this is a one day Saturday late morning/early afternoon meet.
  • 12/4-5 Winter Warmth EGAC – Elk Grove Aquatics Center, Elk Grove
  • 12/11 SYS December Invite – Shasta YMCA, Redding

 

GET INVOLVED!

On SATURDAY, OCTOBER 2, 2021, Sierra Nevada Swimming will host its "ONLY" Officials Clinic for the 2021-2022 Season. We have had small but mighty group of parents who have served as our team officials over the past few years. It is vital that we grow our team of officials so that CAJ can continue to participate and host meets. For more information about this zoom training, click here. Reach out to CAJ President Ali Guzeldere for more info: [email protected]

As we make the adjustment to fall, please note that the practice schedules will be changing on November 1st. All groups will continue to practice at In Motion within our assigned times at that facility. We are thrilled to have multiple coaches working with our age-group swimmers and thank you in advance for your flexibility. The schedule will be announced later this week and should be our set schedule November 1st – February 28th.
