Kyle Wilson

Hello SSC Parents & Swimmers,


Thanks to all who came out and helped with this weekend’s Turkey Trot Distance Meet! Congratulations to all SSC Athletes who came out and competed as well! We had a ton of first time swims this weekend in the distance events and a ton of new championship meet qualifiers across the board!


Shout out to Amber Naude on securing her first ZONES cut time in the 50 Freestyle with a 26.55! Shout out to Connor Frank on getting another Junior Olympics (Metro Short Course Age Group Championships)! We had many more Silvers qualifiers and more! I am excited to go through all of the new reports as they become available! Great job by all SSC Swimmers. Your Coaches are proud!


Below, please take a moment to review the Top Times Reports, Qualifier Reports, and meet information at the bottom of the Meet Information Chart. Please familiarize yourselves with the upcoming championship meets and remember to set goals and target dates for future qualifications!


ALL COMPETITIVE GROUPS - As previously announced, there will be a LAST CHANCE Time Trial offered at the conclusion of the Beginner Mini Meet this Tuesday, 11/22/22. This time trial opportunity will be reserved for swimmers who are close to NCAP QUALIFICATION TIMES ONLY. I currently do not have any formal requests for time trials. Please send me your requests asap to [email protected] All entries are due TODAY by 12:00pm.

NCAP SWIMMERS & PARENTS - There will be a MANDATORY parent Meeting on Tuesday 11/22 at Sachem North at 7:30pm for all parents with swimmers attending NCAP. If your swimmer has qualified for NCAP, please RSVP with Coach Kyle ASAP as your entries have been automatically submitted.

Hello Fall Beginner & Beginner Plus Swimmers & Parents,


Our Fall Beginner and Beginner Plus session is nearing its end. This is a bittersweet time as while we close out the Fall Session, we all have the Winter Session to look forward to! We are so happy to have had so many new faces in our program and the feedback from you, the members, has been incredible. We are thrilled to have had such a full and dedicated Fall Session and are excited to see what the Winter Session brings in as well! Special thanks to Coach Kim, Coach Jess, Coach Ashlyn, Coach Jayden, Coach Rob, and to all the other SSC coaches who made this session’s Beginner programs so awesome!


As we near the end of the fall session, we would like to review some dates, information about move ups, and Winter Session details all in one place to hopefully help with any questions that you may have about the upcoming season and about your swimmers.


I hope that you are all excited about the upcoming Beginner Time Trial to close out a great season with this incredible group of athletes!


Please review the information below in detail and let us know if you have any questions!



Coach Kyle

TEAM Promotions


1- SSC Team Store is NOW CLOSED

2 - 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, 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 heps 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


3- Deep End Swimming Merch

For the holiday season, Deep End is offering a 15% discount to all Sachem Swim Club members!


All orders will be shipped directly to the customer’s address, not to the pool this time around.


Free expedited shipping will be added on orders over $85.00!




Date: 12/2-12/24
