Up next.....

 
Sounds like everyone had a great time on the bus, a few weird difficulties, locked in bathroom, etc.... what a great activity for young and old swimmers! Please take the time to thank the chaperones, quite a job all day.

Had a fantastic meet at Schroeder, several best times and finals swimmers. Lok at the Pen Pulse for details. One small difficulty is occurring more often lately. Just so you know, most teams do not allow swimmers and parents to sign up for events. The coach enters all swimmers. I feel that we are doing well with entries so far except for a glitch I would like eradicated. When you sign up for an event, unless you are suddenly ill or hurt, you will swim the event. If you want to scratch an event, I am the only person that will say yes or no. This is not a parent decision. If you have questions on this please see me directly. Allowing swimmers to skip events is not acceptable. We are a team, we should swim as a team, not individuals. Swimmers only should approach me at a meet to explain why they are skipping an event. If we want children to be responsible for their actions, parents coming up to me to tell me their child is skipping a race is not effective. Or even worse, not even telling me. I need to know why they want to skip a race. If you are not talking to your swimmer about what they want to swim before signing up, please start doing this from now on. The message to the rest of the team is not good in any light. Again, please see me if you have a question about this. Mike
