Dear SBSC families, 
Practice Schedule We will be starting the week of June 1. We have acquired pool time at Twyckenham Hills Community Club Pool. We are also in talks with Arlington Pool and with the VP&A about using Potawatomi Pool. We hope to have some pool time at both of those sites as well. Our practices will be in the morning. As of today we haven't been successful in acquiring evening pool time and, realistically, we may not until we are back in the schools. How this will look...

Dear SBSC families, 
Practice Schedule No start date to announce yet. According to Governor Holcomb's 5 part plan pools may open again on May 24. I will be in touch with some of the local pools to check the availability/possibility of us using their facilities. If it is allowed I'd like to start, in at least in a limited context, on June 1. If that is not possible, I am hoping we will be allowed back in the schools on July 6. I will update as I know more. Daily...

Dear SBSC families, 
Practice Schedule No start date to announce yet. If you saw Dr. Cummings video message from last week you know the Riley pool is getting some much needed repairs. While it is drained it will be cleaned, underwater lights replaced, and the bulkhead repaired. They will also be updating several of the mechanical systems in the pump room. This is certainly a silver lining during our down time. The hope is to have it all completed by the end of May. IHSAA Sport Physicals The IHSAA announced...

Dear SBSC families, 
Practice Schedule No change to announce Continuing Ed/Other Training Options I watched a great webinar last week on the importance of sleep and how it can positively or negatively impact an athlete's performance. I recommend parents and swimmers watch it together. Lots of helpful tips. Here is the link. Another great video to watch with your swimmers. This was led by two Olympians Tyler Clary and Chole Sutton. Here is the link to "6 Tips to a More Confident Swimmer." Lastly, we have had some good feedback...

Dear SBSC families, By now I am assuming you have heard the announcement from Governor Holcomb. For those that haven't, students in Indiana will not be returning to school this spring. I am sure most of you have several questions or concerns about what this means for your families. Some of you are probably even concerned what this means for our club moving forward. To be honest I am having the same thoughts and feelings. At this point, I do not believe there are any answers to those questions. There...
