Weekly Update 12/20 - 12/26

Kyle Wilson

Hey team!

 

After a great block of championship meets, we are back to training hard. We have another home tomorrow, Reindeer Games, and have a short break from meets for the holiday season.

 

We will hit the ground running again in January and have added a championship travel meet to our schedule for January 28th-30th. If you are NOT attending the IMX meet that weekend, please consider this newly added championship meet. We may not get another opportunity to compete as a team in a prelims/finals event with spectators with increasing COVID restrictions popping up.

 

Please take a moment to read through the notes below on upcoming meets, and declare your commitment ASAP. Do not wait to do this. These meets will fill up quickly and without early entries, we can potentially get shut out.

 

Looking forward to the Holidays and training hard with our SSC family!

 

-Coach Kyle
