Weekly News

Wow.  What a weekend!  Let’s just say this:  Mother Nature gave us her best shot and we still pulled off a full Hubie and only had a 1 hour delay.  To say that we have a heck of a team of swimmers and parents is a huge understatement.  A lot of bigger clubs would not have pulled it off.  So, hats off to everyone.  The meet was a success and it was a team effort.  It’s a big deal.

I also want to apologize for today.  Traditionally we don’t have practice the Monday after the Hubie.  I had moved some to tomorrow but didn’t finish the job.  Pay special attention to the schedule this week it is a little different with a goal of making up for some missed practices the last couple of weeks.

The weather has had it out for us this year but it looks like things are on the upswing in that department.  Keep your fingers crossed.

MAAPP (SAFE SPORT POLICY) - Forms are available at both pools.  Please get yours signed and turned in ASAP.

SWIM-A-THON - So far we have had Trey Kimbley and Emma Heinzman achieve BIG KAHUNA status. Kenzie and Kenall Held tied for the honor last week.  Who will it be this week?  Get your pledge sheets ready for Friday.

MORNING RED/MINNOWS/DEVELOPMENTAL – I am looking for feedback.  As of now the current morning schedule stands.  HOWEVER:  I am considering moving these groups to 8:30 AM so that they can practice outside.  We had a make up for these groups outside recently and I didn’t get any complaints about water temp or anything.  So, please message me if such a change would NOT work for you.

MITCHELL DUAL MEET – The meet is a week from tomorrow.  If you are not already committed, please do so.  This will be a different experience and should be a lot of fun.  Swimmers will need to be dressed and ready on deck at 5:15.

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: 
    • @ Mitchell                                                                          Tuesday, July 2nd
    • Picture Day/Swim-a-thon/Ice Cream Social           Saturday, July 6th
    • Stone City Showdown                                                    Friday/Saturday July 12/13th

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.

***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!
