Dear HCY Swimmers and Family,

What an eventful weekend! Thank you all – a thousand times over for your participation during our Annual Autumn Challenge meet. It is amazing what a group of volunteers can achieve! You all are so great.

Quote of the weekend:

           “These meets are SO much better when the kids are in charge.” -Little Stingrays Swimmer

My thank you goes out to all of the kids who helped as well! We are so lucky to have such a bright bunch.

We had some really great swims- with swimmers qualifying left and right for just about every champ’s level. It is remarkable to see how much improvement has been made so far. Our swimmers were looking fierce and ready as ever. We had many first-time swims and moments of profound perseverance. Dropping time is fantastic, we love to see all of that progress on display, but so is showing up and competing with all of your heart. We don’t get best times every meet- it’s the love of the sport that drives us forward.

Coach Jenn shared a really great article recently. It is perfect for this point in the season.

There are no meets this week. Enjoy the Holiday weekend!


As a reminder- all practices are running as normal this week with the exception of Thursday (No practice for any groups) and Friday (no A.M. practice for Seniors).

We have two awesome fundraisers coming up! Many thanks to the PAC for putting this all together-
