Good Afternoon WEST Folks, 
I hope everyone enjoyed the sunny weather this weekend. We are almost 1 month away from summer break for many of our amazing students, so remember to hold in there and study hard! Finals can be a particularly stressful time so remember to stay proactive with your work, set aside timed breaks and to get plenty of rest. Read on for this week's announcements:
Zone's Swimmers: Congrats to the following swimmers for making the 2019 Age Group Zones PNS Team: It's a very competitive application process, and we are honored to have several swimmers be selected.

Clean Up Day Review:
Awesome job and THANK YOU to all of our volunteers that participated in WEST's Spring Clean Up Day this past Saturday. The facility looks great and we took care of several issues that will help protect our longevity.
Attention: PLEASE respect the hard work of our volunteers by NOT allowing children to climb, hang on trees and bushes and STAY OFF the mulched areas. If you see people not following these rules, please politely ask them to stop and report it to our office / coaches if they do not listen.
Cactus Classic in Arizona
Good luck to our WEST athletes participating at Scottsdale Aquatic Club's Cactus Classic this weekend! Team travel trips are an amazing opportunity for our swimmers to experience a larger scope of competitive swimming outside of the Pacific Northwest. This meet will be very competitive, so safe and happy travels to everyone that will be in attendance. Make sure you read the previous email that was sent out regarding room assignments, itinerary and requirements.

No one is allowed into the pool area other than swimmers practicing and coaches. This includes coming onto the pool area to use the locker rooms. There are bathrooms located outside of the pool area and we have been specifically asked by the city, to have all non-swimmer / non-coaches use the public restrooms instead.
