Ann Bolten

A big thank you to everyone who volunteered in ways large and small. Because of the team effort, Time Trials was a very successful dry run at running a summer swim meet. Despite the chilly and sometimes rainy our kids had a blast and rocketed to some fast times.

Everything picks up this week as we launch full swing into the heart of the season. Our first B Meet is at Little Falls this Wednesday evening and our first A Meet is on Saturday morning at Lakelands. It is imperative that you take a few minutes and check that you have committed your swimmers on TeamUnify either yes or no for both meets this week. And while you’re at it, please pull out your family’s calendar and commit your swimmers for all of the meets this season including relay carnival and divisionals.

Action Items for you Immediate Attention

  • Commit your swimmers yes or no for both meets this week and for the balance of the season including relay carnival and divisionals.
