It’s a wild one!

Alycia McAlister

This week's a wild ride!  Especially the water Bucking Bronco on Monday. Hope you were able to hold on. A big Yahoooooo! to everyone who kicked off their boots and let their hair down at Sunday’s Twisted Time Trials. It was a ton of fun to see so many siblings, parents, swimmers and coaches showoff their wild side in our final swim event of 2021 at SVST.  But there's more fun to come. 

In case you haven’t seen it yet, there is another round of SVST’s Most Wanted! Let’s tip our hats to these swimmers with a winning attitude work ethic, and spirit.  Congratulations Rays of the Week (and last week) Keep up the great work!

As we ride into the Lafayette Swim Conference Championship Meet (AKAConference or LSC) this weekend it is time to let our SVST Spirit SHINE! There are points awarded this weekend for showing LSC/SVST spirit around town and at the LSC Meet.  Saturday is the Conference Spirit “Back in the Saddle” theme and Sunday is SVST Spirit, “Wild, wild West” theme. (Dress appropriately ;-) LSC & SVST Team T-shirts and creativity are encouraged) 

Next time you hitch your ride in front of the pool to pick up your swimmer, take a few minutes to decorate your car to rep your swimmers and SVST!  Washable window paint and ray stencils are available on the front desk.  If you're not sure how, ask the swimmers, they'll be happy to help. 

Thursday evening 6 - 8pm bring your family to dinner at Sun Valley Pool for SVST’s Pre-LSC Pasta Feed. We’ll eat and share important Conference details and tips, and rally for the weekend!   RSVP here.
