This Week

Good morning - we're excited to have everyone back from break! This week we'll shake off the rust while refining turns and breakouts and make progress building our aerobic capacity.

Please remember that we are taking the lead on volunteering for the Halloween Super Splash. As of right now, we need 11 more volunteers. 

Thanks to those who have already signed up! If you have not already registered your child and are available to volunteer, let me know and I will add them to the meet.

WTSC Holiday Championships (Deadline: November 1)

Registration is available for the WTSC Holiday Championships meet (North Central High School, November 22-24). This is a prelims-finals meet the weekend before Thanksgiving.

This competition is a huge focus for our group - we will give athletes the opportunity to wear racing suits if they choose, they will select their own events at practice, and it will mark the end of the "first half" of our season prior to our toughest training of the season throughout December and January. I also consider this to be our first meet where we are as focused on performance as we are on evaluating opportunities to improve.

Parents, please list in the notes if there is a day of the meet your child is not available. This is more helpful to us when we do entries than you selecting events as we want to get athletes in the practice of thinking about their events (rather than parents choosing for them).

You can register for the meet here. Please let me know if you have any questions.
