Flying Fish Weekly Update    

Summer Week 11 (June 20th - June 24th)

 

Happy Monday!  I hope everyone had a good weekend and are now ready for another week in the pool!  Congratulations to our Flying Fish, Sid Singh, Makayla Edwards, Lainey Sealls and Akshara Venkatram, that participated in the June Super Splash this weekend!  We are SO proud of you!  Coach Cassidy and I are looking forward to hopefully seeing more of our group join for the Last Chance Splash in July!  This week we FINALLY have a normal week of practice.  We will continue to work on stroke technique and get back into the swing of things with the pool being back in long course.  Please make sure your swimmers come prepared to listen and work hard this week so we can keep learning and getting better!  Looking forward to another great week of practice, see everyone at the pool soon. :) 

 

***A FEW THINGS TO REMEMBER***

  • Please be prepared to do dryland every day before practice, Coach Cassidy and I ask that everyone wears shorts/sweatpants, t-shirt/sweatshirt and tennis shoes for these activities!  We are not promising that we will do dryland everyday but want all swimmers to be prepared just in case! :) 
  • If your swimmer is not feeling well (COVID symptoms or otherwise) please do not send them to practice!  If they did not attend school but are feeling better in the afternoon, please still do not send them.  Also, please notify me of any positive tests results that might impact our group so we can start the protocol to make sure everyone is taken care of!  I appreciate your cooperation as we try to keep all of our kiddos and staff healthy during this time!
  • Our equipment list stays the same for this season - suit, towel, goggles, meshbag, kickboard and fins!
  • We have a new business manager for the club, Erin Fisher!  She will be your go-to for all questions previously directed to Blake about anything non-swimming/coaching related!  Her email is [email protected] .

Other:

  • Please plan to park in the athletic lot (by the football stadium) and enter through door #10.  Coaches will walk swimmers out to door #9 at the completion of practice.  We ask that parents drop swimmers off no earlier than 10 minutes prior to the beginning of practice and try to pick up their swimmers no later than 10 minutes after our listed end time of 6:20pm.  We also ask that you walk up to door 9 to pick up your swimmers, we will not walk them to the parking lot or to the curb.  This is also a time where we can quickly get information out to families so having someone walk up to pick up your swimmers will be very helpful to us!  I understand that sometimes it can be difficult to get within the small timeframes so if anyone has questions or concerns please let me know! 
  • Any changes to our schedule will be sent out through our weekly updates.
  • Please take a look at your kiddos equipment to make sure that they have all of their own stuff!  Also please be sure to have their name written on ALL pieces of their equipment and remind them to look before taking/putting equipment in their bags to make sure it is theirs.  If you discover that you have someone else’s equipment, please make sure to send it back so we can get it returned to the right kiddo!
