Beginner/Beginner Plus Open House & Tryouts for Winter Session

 
  • Please note that there will be NO PRACTICE for all groups on 11/13 due to our home meet.
  • Beginner/Beginner Plus will be held at the Holtsville YMCA located at 155 Buckley Road, Holtsville, NY on Wednesday 11/10
  • Please note that this week, Sachem East will be undergoing construction on the pool. Because of this, Novice and Seniors will Swim at the Holtsville YMCA on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.
  • We will be hosting an open house this Wednesday evening at Sachem North for all new swimmers, interested in joining our program. Swimmers already enrolled in our Beginner & Beginner Plus Programs will not be required to attend. Instead, please attend your regularly scheduled practice on Wednesday. Please share this information with any family or friends who may be interested in trying out for our team!

2. Beginner/Beginner Plus Assignments

  • We are short this week on Beginner/Beginner Plus Junior/Senior assistance for Wednesday 11/10. If you are interested in helping out with this class, please email Coach Kyle at [email protected]

3. Turkey Clause Travel Meet

  • We currently have 12 swimmers signed up for the Turkey Clause Swim meet. As discussed,  we will be sending a team to Turkey Claus provided we can get 15 or more committed swimmers minimum. Many of you have expressed concern due to the lack of spectators rule and the lengthy travel commitment. We understand that this is not ideal for anyone, but we are trying our best to maintain our travel championship event. If you would like to add your information for membership communication, please click here to add your information to a Google Sheet. This will be publically shared among our members strictly for carpooling arrnagements, travel communications, and live feed viewing parties for families not traveling.
  • If you plan to attend the NCAP meet, you cannot attent the Turkey Clause meet if you qualify for 4 or more NCAP events.
  • NCAP qualifying times have not changed from the previous 2019 qualifying times. I've attached the 2019 meet itinerary complete with ualifying times for your convenience. Once the 2021 times are published, they will also be shared. Please review the times to see if your swimmers are anywhere near the qualifying times. If so, we are happy to arrange to have them swim those events in any of our upcoming meet opportunities or in a self-hosted time trial TBD.

4. Team Suits

  • Many of our members have reached out stating that they are unsure of their swim suit sizes. Although everyone has a different fit when it comes to swimsuits, I would encourage most of our swimmers to size down when purchasing a team suit, or a tech suit. For instance, Coach Kyle wears a 31/32 waist pant, but competes in a 28/29 swimsuit/tech suit. The 6'5" TYR rep swims in a 27 size tech suit. Again, everyone is different with their sizing, but racing suits should fit snug as has been the tradition in the sport since the addition of these types of suits. Hopefully, this serves as a good reference for those who are not familiar with the sizing process moving forward.

5. Team gear

  • Most team gear has been distributed and/or corrected. We are still waiting on many orders from our second wave at this time. Plain team caps are available for all and are being distributed by the group coaches. If your swimmer has not recieved them, please speak with your group coach before/after practice to pick one up.
  • Anyone who ordered a white swim cap with a name, but received a black swim cap with a name, will be receiving a white one as well once they are printed ad delivered. Thank you for your patience!

62021 HAA TYR Eagle Invitational - Dec 09, 2021 - Dec 12, 2021

  • This meet is currently near capacity. If you would like to be added to this meet, please register/commit ASAP. Our preliminary entries have already been submitted to the host team and are being reviewed.
  • We encourage anyone who is not participating in the Turkey Clause or NCAP Meets to consider swimming in this meet and register asap.
