Dear Swimmers and Families,

I hope you all are having a great week! Thank you a million times over to everyone who came on Sunday and supported our team. It was such a great night, and it was so lovely to see everyone together in one spot.

Congratulations to all of the swimmers that competed this weekend! We saw some really nice swims- not to mention some first time swims. It was awesome!

We had a team record broken this weekend:

Bella Hoffman 13-14 1650 FR- 18:37.64- Congrats!

I’d also like to give a shout-out to Bella Hoffman and Victoria Castro for their placement in the Top 10/16 Recognition within 2017-2018 Long Course YMCA National Age Group Swimming. We are proud of you!

We have our two first dual meets vs MAY this weekend at RVCC:

12&U:  Check-in: 2:15pm Start: 3:00pm

13&Over: Check-in: 5:00pm Start: 5:45pm

To do list:

-Review your Autumn Challenge swimmer entries. ( Attached- if any changes are needed let us know ASAP )

-Review posted jobs for upcoming meets.

-Pick up your team shirt/cap from your lead coach.

-Bring waterbottle to practice.

-Bundle up for dryland!

-Please hydrate and eat healthfully—we are in the thick of training now, and you need a lot of energy.

-Please remember to reach out to your lead coach with meet/practice matters, as they are the ones who organize each group.


There will ONLY be practice for the Seniors groups on Saturday 10/27 from 7:30am-10:00am. NO JUNIORS GROUPS WILL BE PRACTICING.

In reference to choosing events for swimmers- to the parents at the meeting… I was referring heavily to Invitational meets for event placement. For dual meets, the coaches will choose the events for the swimmer- as we have season plan that we follow.

For all of the parents that did the mini session at the scoring table, THANK YOU!!

Here is the remaining A/O class for certification training:  

Nov. 2 6pm HCY Annandale
