It is Senior State week!  Time to show Indiana what we have been working on!

Here are this week’s updates!

SCHEDULE – There is no practice Friday or Saturday.  Please check the calendar for specifics on your group.  Diamond group will likely be over a little ahead of the scheduled end time.

Looking ahead:  Next week will be test set focused practices in order to figure out who will move up in April.  The last week of the month is Spring Break and the only practices we will have that week will be for those swimming at Speedo Sectionals the last weekend of the month. 

Please take advantage of the last 2 weeks of the month to rest, take a break, and gear up for a big Spring/Summer season.

MOVE UPS – Just an FYI I will generally not move swimmers up in an official (roster) capacity the last month of the season.  Those that have qualified for a move up in practice group will begin on April 1 and will need to register appropriately.  If you have questions about moving up, when, how etc. please message me.

GIRLS VARSITY LOCKER ROOM – The small locker room will be available to Diamond Group swimmers only due to limited space.  All others will continue to use the girls PE locker room.

AWARDS BANQUET – Tuesday, March 19th @ 6:00.  Pitch in details will be forthcoming.  All swimmers that participated in the short course season should plan on attending!

PARENT MEETING/OPEN HOUSE/EQUIPMENT & SWIM STORE – Thursday, March 21st.  Doors will open at 5:30.  Parent meeting will be at 6:00.  

SPRING/SUMMER REGISTRATION – Registration for the long course season will open at the beginning of March.  All swimmers, even those swimming in March, will need to go online and register for the season.  The first day of practice will be April 1.  There will be mandatory team meetings with the swimmers in Blue and Diamond groups that day.  More details will be emailed separately.

***You do not have to register in March if you do not plan on swimming until May, June or beyond.  Just make sure you register ahead of your first day of practice.  So, if you plan on starting up in June registering in May is fine.

Please note:

  • The season will go from April 1 to August 24th.
  • Evenings will once again be available in June and July.  (All practices are evening once school begins.
  • A few important dates: 
    • Spring Intrasquad                            Saturday, May 18th

SWIM LESSONS – Sign ups are ongoing.  Please share and refer.  Spaces are limited.  More information as well as registration is online.

TRASH BAGS – We have them in stock.  If you need more, please contact Tina Howell.  The trash bag fundraiser is basically an all the time thing and we usually end up having repeat customers throughout the year.

COMMITTEES – There are still openings on all committees.  If you are interested in finding out more about what these groups do and what is involved, please let me know.  There is something for everyone so whatever your talents and passions there is a place for you to shine. 

***We are just starting to ramp up for all our Summer events and can use your help.  Especially on the meet committee.  If you are interested in helping me on this committee, please let me know.

Have a great week!
