Halloween Splash

Job sign ups are open for the Halloween Splash.  Each swimming family is required to work 3 sessions of this upcoming meet, so please log on to your account and sign up.
If you’ve not yet signed your swimmer up for the meet, the registration deadline is quickly approaching!  Sign up by  
this Friday, October 11th.  See your coaches if you have questions regarding the meet or the sign up process.

VCSC Fall Break – No practice

There will be no swimming or diving practices this coming Friday, Saturday, and Monday (October 11th, 12th, and 14th) as the pool will be closed for Fall Break.    

ISU Homecoming Parade

THT will be represented in this weekend’s parade, and we’d like to have as many swimmers and divers walking with us as possible!  We’d like our athletes to wear our new orange Swim and Dive t-shirts.  Our float will be just East of Hulman Center, and arrival time is 8:15 with the parade beginning at 9am.  I’ll be sending more detailed info and a map later this week. 
We’re still looking for help cutting and painting cardboard this week (Tuesday and Wednesday) during practice time, as well as help assembling the float on parade day.  Also, candy donations would be very much appreciated.  There will be a large tub in the wet classroom throughout the week for donations.

PCA Meet  

Entries are open for the November 8th-10th meet in Plainfield.  The deadline to sign up is October 18th.  This is a great opportunity to travel to a meet with a nice pool that’s close to home. 

Apparel Orders

If you’re looking to order THT gear before the Halloween Splash, fill out an order form and get it to your coaches by October 17th.  Forms are online in the News section of the website, or there will be forms available at the pool this week. 

Trunk or Treat

It’s October, and Halloween will be here soon.  Join us in the parking lot of the Aquatic Center from 6-7pm for Trunk-or-Treating on October 31st!  If you’re interested in decorating a vehicle and passing out candy (provided by THT), please send Coach Todd an email at  The more cars, the more candy, the more fun!
