Christmas & New Year's Practice Schedule as of December 1st, 2022

Jim & Pam Fulton

Hello everyone,                                                                                                                     December 1st


This month comes with some great opportunity to get extra time in the water so be at all practices that you are able...a month away from the pool is too much if you take it all off it will be like starting over again at the beginning of the season. 

***There may be more days we take off...but for now this is the schedule for the Christmas/New Year's Holidays at MCY.  Come when you can and are able, do activities with school, family and friends when you need to and we will see you as often as you can!  Merry, Merry Christmas and Happy, Happy New Year to each and every one of our MCY families!!!


- Please consider keeping at least one day a week of practice during the Christmas/New Year's break to make sure to stay current for the little kiddos as missing a huge chunk of time all at once may cause them to revert back to before the season began.  Big kids need to be in the water more, especially those who have goals for the end of the season!!!

  • Please put these on your calendar and take note. 
  • These will be on our Facebook page, on our website/OnDeck app and I will send Remind texts to keep everyone in the know, as always.


- There will be NO regular evening practices on Friday the 23rd and Friday the 30th, instead we will have a morning practice for the 13 & up swimmers at the Robinson Y from 9:00 - 10:30 AM both mornings of the 23rd and the 30th.

  • I will attach practices for all those 12 & unders wanting to go to either YMCA on their own this day to get time in the water. 
  • This will be a great time to really work on a particular stroke...long distances...flip turns, etc.  


- We will have regular Saturday AM practices in Piqua on both December 24th, A Christmas Eve Practice and the December 31st, A New Year's Eve Practice from 7:00 - 9:00 am.  We are again adding the 11 - 12's to this practice and will have breakfast served after this practice.  Come for the Fun - Stay for the Breakfast!!!! 

If you would like to bring something to share for breakfast it is welcome ~ just reach out to Coach Pam for ideas!!

  • Chocolate Milk
  • Casseroles
  • Donuts
  • Bagels


- There will be NO practices at all on both Christmas and New Year's Day Sundays as the YMCA's are closed these days.  We are also canceling all practices on the Mondays December 26th and January 2nd.  

  • Again, I will attach practices for all of those wanting to go to either YMCA on their own on days off to get time in the water.  This could be a great time to really work on a particular stroke...long distances...flip turns, etc.  Please make sure to be respectful of the other YMCA members who are at the Y during these times and make sure to check their schedules as both Y's have activities during the days.


Have a most wonderful Christmas and New Year's Holiday with your family and friends.  These are the absolute best of times!!  Make your family time GREAT!!!


Coach Pam :)
