Weekly news: Swimfest Edition

Coach Corry Day

Hello to all Panther Swimmers,


Four more sleeps until our big swim meet. If your child is competing in this event then please make sure Thursday and Friday they get lots of sleep and really good nutrition to give them the best opportunity to succeed.


Important Notes:


Swimfest tailgate party and spirit night:


Remind her that this Friday, November 11 we will have one swim practice for all ages at the 50 m pool. 25 m pool will stay where they are and have regular practices. In preparation for our big event, we will have an all-ages practice together. The upper classmen will mentor younger swimmers around everything you need to know for a swim meet.

Even if you are not entered in Swimfest, please attend this practice if you have free time.

ES squads will start their practice as normal at 2:40. Then middle school and high school will join at 3:00.

We will discuss pre-meet nutrition, common errors made by newbies, and appropriate swim meet behaviors.



Thailand national qualifying opportunity:Patana feeding frenzy

It is my hopes that this year we take our largest team ever to the Thailand national championships. To qualify for these championships, and you need to swim qualifying times at special designated meets. Our first opportunity is at Patna on December 9-11. Deadline for this meet is approaching quickly, please contact your coach if you are unsure about your readiness for this event.


Monday, November 14 all swimming is canceled.

All of our coaches and aquatic staff will work all day Saturday and all-day Sunday preparing for this huge event. Please feel free to make up the missed lesson any day of the week. Just let me know your plan.
