11/07 - 11/13 SSC WEEKLY UPDATE

Kyle Wilson

Hello SSC Parents & Swimmers,

 

Thanks again for another great week! Good luck to all SSC Swimmers competing this weekend at Hofstra University!

 

We have a lot of updates this week and an irregular practice schedule this week as well as through the new year. Please be sure to double-check all of the information below and ask questions if you are unsure of anything!

 

Quick Reminders/Updates:

 

Beginner & Beginner Plus Swimmers: Please SAVE THE DATE - Our Fall Beginner and Beginner Plus Mini Meet will be held on 11/22/22 at TBD! 

Warm Up will begin at 5:15pm, so please plan to arrive at 5:00pm!

The Meet will begin at 6:15pm and is estimated to conclude around 7:30pm.

Volunteer timers will be needed! SSC Swimmers will receive Community Service Hours for volunteering, Parents can contact the SSC Board of Directors for questions regarding working assignments.

 

Championship Meets:

Every year we Coaches prepare our swimmers with the intent of peaking performance through a process called “tapering” for a select few meets. If you have swum with us for years and competed in championship meets before you may be familiar with this process. That being said, it is extremely important to make sure that you are attending one or more of the 3 meets in our upcoming mid-season SCY championship meet lineup (i.e. Turkey Claus, NCAP, HAA TYR Eagle Invite).

 

Swimmers interested in competing at Turkey Claus: An important informational email went out earlier this week regarding this meet. Please use the following link for this information: (additional info below)Turkey Claus 2022 Meet Information Email.pdf

 

Swimmers interested in qualifying for and attending NCAP: NCAP meet qualification times are posted below. If you have qualified for this meet, please make every effort to attend. With little opportunity to qualify, make sure to review your personal best times and compare them to the NCAP qualifying times to be sure that you are time trialing the events you have the best chance at qualifying for!

 

Swimmers interested in  qualifying for and attending IMX (14&Under): Please see the meet information below for steps on how to check your IMX scores.

 

Silvers, Junior Olympics, Age Group Team Challenge, Senior Mets, Eastern Zones Championship, and Sectionals qualification times have all been posted!

 

Thanks,


Coach Kyle

TEAM Promotions

1- DMC Fins

We have just received a member-exclusive Discount Code from our friends at DMCFins! DMC makes great fins that are some of the best fins out there. They are made with soft materials and wide toe-boxes. The blades are short, and wide, and come with a heel strap rather than a boot, which helps with maximizing torque in the water, quad activation, minimizes cramping and foot pain, as well as helps to create a more natural kick. We have had many SSC Swimmers begin using these fins and hope that they are of interest and help to many more.


Discount Code at Checkout: DMCSSD

Current Promotions: Free shipping on all Elite Max and Elite II fins

 

2- Deep End Swimming Merch

We have once again teamed up with our friends at Deep End to bring you more swimming casual wear at discounted pricing! We will be issuing a Black Friday Sale promotion that will ship before the holidays, shortly!
