Hello CAJ Families!

 

Congrats to our swimmers who competed at the CCA Spooktacular meet this weekend in Roseville!

 

UPCOMING MEETS:

  • SIGN UP for our CAJ October Meet – next Saturday, 10/16! This is a local (PV pool located next to Bidwell Junior High School) meet designed for ALL levels of swimmers from Minis up to Senior swimmers. If this is your first meet, we will have our older swimmers available to walk your swimmer through the meet experience! The weather is perfect, it’s a short drive from home and it’s a mid-day meet! Sign up today here. The meet closes at 11:59pm this Wednesday, 10/13.
  • 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 if you have questions.
  • 12/4-5 Winter Warmth EGAC – Elk Grove Aquatics Center, Elk Grove
  • 12/11 SYS December Invite – Shasta YMCA, Redding

 

THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION AT IN MOTION:

Parents are not allowed on deck during practice times. You may walk your swimmer to the pool at the time of practice, but once they have started swimming, we need to keep a clear deck. If you are a member of In Motion Fitness, you are welcome to workout while your swimmer practices, but there is no sitting on deck for the duration of practice. This also helps keep our coaches and swimmers focused for the short amount of time spent in the pool.
