Weekly News (Week 4)

Adam Young

Fall break is coming up next week.  After that the action picks up significantly.  HS season is right around the corner along with our first competitions!

SCHEDULE – Nothing different this week.  However, look ahead to next week (Fall break) as the schedule is different that week.  Specifically, for the HS group.

ELSMORE SUIT SIZING/EQUIPMENT NIGHT – Elsmore will be at the pool Thursday, October 7th.  After much consideration we will be switching our team suit vendor from Speedo to TYR.  I realize that some of you purchased Speedo suits this Summer and you are not obligated to get another one.  However, if you have yet to get a team suit and plan on competing in meets this Winter you should get sized.  The good news is our new suit will look a lot like the one from Summer.  My hope is we can have this one for a couple of seasons.  Elsmore will also have goggles, practice suits, caps and all the other goodies your swimmer needs.  6:00 is when the store will open.

INTRASQUAD -  We will do this October 23rd.  Start time will be 10:00 AM.  It should last 2-3 hours.  Warm ups will begin at 9:00.  We will need volunteers/officials so please check your calendar.

SPRING MILL SHINDIG – Saturday, October 16th.  This event is a lot of fun.  We weren’t able to get the weekend we wanted and so the final weekend of Fall Break is when we are doing it.  I realize folks go on vacations etc. but I would love to have everyone there.  We rent the Red Cross shelter, cook out & pitch in, campfire and more.

MINNOWS – Just want to make sure everyone knows that we are doing Minnows.  Currently we are only doing the 5:30 time slot due to numbers.  If you have registered for the 6:30 time slot and cannot make the 5:30 time slot please message me.

BIRTH CERTIFICATES -  USA Swimming requires proof of age for memberships.  Please email or text me a picture of your swimmer’s birth certificate (ONLY IF THIS IS YOUR FIRST SEASON EVER).  While this is mostly for competition purposes it’s best to take care of it right out of the gate.  If you are unsure of your status on this please message me.

Have a great week!
