Flying Fish Weekly Updates

Welcome to Southeastern Swim Club and the Flying Fish!  We are excited to have your child participate with us during the Long Course season! We had a great start to our first week of practice- we spent some time during our dryland activities getting to know our teammates.  During the first week in the pool, we spent time introducing/reviewing freestyle drills.  We will continue that review this week and also begin introducing/reviewing backstroke drills and the start progressions to be start-certified.  For those returning swimmers, we will also begin working on breaststroke/butterfly drills and starts from the blocks. I will be sending out a weekly e-mail with important information so please be sure to read through these weekly updates. 

1.  Practice Calendar- A few updates have been made to the online practice schedule for the next few weeks.  Please make a note of the practice schedule by following this online link... And please note- if we need to make any changes to the online calendar, those changes will be addressed in the weekly update e-mails.

2.  Equipment- Please be sure to have your swimmers ready for practice on a nightly basis.  They need to have tennis shoes, shorts/t-shirt and a water bottle for each practice.  They will also need their equipment bag (flippers/kickboard) for each practice.  If you have not purchased equipment yet, please visit Elsmore Swim Shop (4705 E 96th St, Indianapolis, IN 46240). Let them know you are with SSC/Flying Fish and you will receive a discount on your purchases.

3. Team Parent- As a new season starts, we are looking for a parent (or two) who might be interested in being our groups' Team Parent.  This is a volunteer position (similiar to a room parent) that brings in snacks after practice on an occasional basis.  As the Team Parent, you will receive a check from the club to provide snacks throughout the season.  Typically, snacks are distributed every 2 weeks- no set schedule on when they are distributed.  Smart budgeting on smaller items/sale items will stretch this money pretty far. If you are interested in being the Team Parent this long course season- please let me know.

4. Upcoming Meet Deadlines...

Our SSC-hosted Sizzler meet is coming up very soon.  If you have a swimmer interested in participating, please e-mail me with any questions.

5. Team Activity for Flying Fish...Stay tuned for additional information...I am working on a Team Activity for all the current Flying Fish.

Thank you for the opportunity to work with your child!  I look forward to helping them become better swimmers this season and have lots of fun doing so!  If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to e-mail me at joinsoutheasternswimclub@gmail.com or text me at 317-331-8948.
