Frogger Nation, I hope everyone is enjoying the early part of the summer.  I wanted to remind everyone around the usage of our camp lane. Per the Frogger handbook (available on our website): Once morning practices start at Still Pond Pool, the 7-8 am practice will have a “Camp Lane” for swimmers who cannot attend their assigned practice due to a temporary conflict. To attend the camp lane, discuss with the Head Coach. Today, we had 19 kids in our camp lane. You would agree that this is quite alot,...

Frogger Nation, As you know, last night we had to cancel our meet due to the weather. It is never an easy decision as a lot of people put in a lot of work to prepare us for such a meet. We will attempt to have the meet again tomorrow (Froggers only). The weather looks 'challenging' at the moment. Please bear with us. Our main objective around tomorrow's meet, as always, is the kids, giving them a chance to accummulate times in an attempt to qualify for the A meet,...

Frogger Nation, We've been the recipient of a complaint such that during last week's time trial, some folks have been parking their car tires on homeowners' grass. For the remainder of the swim season, please be careful when parking along Franklin Farm Road to not park on anyone's grass, while at the same time making sure your car tires do not extend into the road beyond the white lines. Thanks for your cooperation.
