Snapshot of the Week

6/24 - 11-12 Social

Coaches Update: It’s hard to believe we’re almost halfway through our season already! We’ve started to see some great improvements over the past week, all the hard work they’ve put in during practice is starting to pay off! Please make sure your swimmer is checking in with their coach before/after their swims and especially before they leave the meet (we want to make sure they don’t miss any relays they may be in!) Go WCSC!!


Pick up your ribbons from past meets after practice -- check with your coach.



No meet this Wednesday, 6/23

All City News:

The 34th All City Meet is this weekend! We need everyone’s help to have a successful swim meet.  It’s supposed to be HOT so bring your sunscreen, lots of water and something for shade. Dress in team gear and/or colors to show your team spirit.


We swim against Dewing Park and Larkey in the West Trial on Saturday morning. FYI there are no relays this year. We will set up in the same area as previous years (near the entrance across from the tennis center) but we can extend further down to allow for more space between families. A map will be in the program and in an All City reminder email later this week.

Team Apparel: Apparel orders will be distributed this week.


Swim caps: If you ordered a silicone cap they are ready to be picked up. If you are new to the team or haven’t had a chance to get your latex swim cap they are at the pool so ask a coach or myself (Erica Gilmore) to get one and we will have some at the All City meet.


Team Suits: We have some new swimmers who are looking for team suits. If you have any you want to pass on or sell please let me know.


If you need to purchase a suit I suggest purchasing a navy suit from Finis https://www.finisswim.com/ (Jammer, brief or Bladeback) or Jolyn https://jolyn.com/ (the Chevy or Brandon style).
