Deep Dive
Notes from Coach Z:
 
Hello MO Dive Families,
 
Mother Nature is messing with us this summer!  Our meet schedule makes two (2) of my favorite three (3) meets canceled/postponed!  
 
We have ample training under our belts and are more than ready for Shorewood (SW) on Thursday, July 1st. 
 
It will be a short week of diving followed by the meet against SW on Thursday at 5pm at Monona
 
Look for volunteer sign up.  We need YOU…please help in all and anyway possible, as Coach Z will be traveling.  We have 50+ divers this summer, just like 2017!  Endless talent. 
 
DIVE VOLUNTEER NEEDS:  We are looking for 2-4 parents who are a little tech savvy to learn the Dive entry system and help out at a few home meets. Set up and take down at home dive meets requires 5+ individuals to move chairs on the pool deck and assist with the scoring table setup/take down. Remember: this week is a mid week dive meet at HOME against a large Shorewood team on Thursday July 1. 
 
HOLIDAY WEEK DIVE SCHEDULE:
THURSDAY 7/1; 
MO vs SW @ Monona @ 5pm
Warmups 3-4pm. 
 
No dive practice: 7/2 & 7/5
 
Swim Notes
Congratulations to all swimmers who participated at the swim meet vs. Seminole this past weekend!
 
It was a wet one, but our MO swimmers did a great job staying positive!
Want to know our results? Check them out here:
 
If your swimmer earned a ribbon for an event, you'll find them in your family's folder/mailbox. Make sure to check your mailbox regularly!
 
Looking for this week's Swim Stars? We haven't forgotten, we just have a few coaches still debating this week's picks! We'll send out the list a bit later this week!

Notes from Coach Kelly:

I'm happy to report that through Saturday's meet our coaches saw a LOT of improvement in our racing endurance and our confidence is trying new things.  Our swimmers have been very coachable this summer and it shows in our meets.   It was a tight meet and even though we didn't come out on top we have a lot of great swims to celebrate! 

We are going to encourage swimmers to start thinking about events they would like to try for All City.  Now is a great time to mix it up or try a new event so we have available times to choose from next month.

We have a quick turnaround for our Wednesday Night Meet at Ridgewood, so please sign up as soon as possible, we need to make our relays asap!
