Good Afternoon WEST,

Good luck to all swimmers competing this weekend for the Northwest Spring Speedo Sectionals meet at KCAC! Here’s this week’s news:

Letterwriting Reminder – This Saturday March 16

This Saturday, WEST will host a breakfast in the gym for all club team swimmers to celebrate the kick - off of our yearly fundraiser Swim-a-thon.  We provide sample letters, envelopes, and postage stamps for swimmers to solicit donations from family, friends, and local business and we ask that each swimmer send out a minimum of 10 letters.   Swimmers can ask people to send donate directly to WEST in their name or sponsor them per lap (ex: 10c per  lap = $20!)

Please be sure to have your swimmer bring a list of names and addresses for their letters.  One swimmer from each group who prepares the most letters on Saturday will win a prize!

Each group will have normal Saturday practice, then eat breakfast and write letters on this schedule:

Saturday, March 16

Senior & Senior Elite: 6:00 - 8:30am practice (No letter writing / breakfast)

Accelerate: 8:30 - 11:00am practice. 11:00 - 12:00pm Letter writing

Challenge: 8:30 - 10:30am practice. 10:30 - 11:30am Letter writing

Disco: 8:30 - 10:00am practice. 10:00 - 11:00am Letter writing

Explore: 10:30 - 11:30am practice. 11:30 - 12:30 Letter writing

Please note that this event is for WEST team swimmers and is not intended to be a family breakfast / dinner. Our hospitality team of parents will be serving breakfast and helping swimmers to address their letters properly.  If you're interested in helping out, contact Janet Kim.

Schedule Changes: No schedule changes to our other programs this weekend!

Happy Swimming,

-WEST Coaching Staff
