September 12-18 News

Coach Michael Brudzinski

This is your River Falls Swim News for the week of September 12-18

THIS WEEK (September 12-18):

Great Job over these first two weeks of getting into the groove of the Fall Session!

As a reminder to all parents, it is a requirement by USA Swimming and their Safe Sport directive that no parents are allowed on the pool deck or in the locker rooms during the practice times unless they are registered Non-Athlete members of USA Swimming (Coaches & Officials) who have completed all of the mandatory training. I understand that for some of our new developmental swimmers it is a new process to get on and off deck and to use the locker rooms, but we cannot have parents on deck during practice times. Coaches are happy to help, and your swimmer can always meet you in the hallway after wrapping up in a towel if you don’t want them to enter the locker room on their own. Thank you for following the rules we must adhere to.

NEXT WEEK (September 19-25):

NO PRACTICE THURSDAY SEPT 23: RFHS Girls Swim and Dive have a home swim meet. Please do not come to practice on Thursday. We do need 16 volunteers to help time at that swim meet, there is a team event sign-up on the website, or you can follow the google link https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1vJv-9Jq4-4H8_W2khV7KsmekLEIVBRj_V6x5HZb37zs/edit?usp=sharing to volunteer.

UPCOMING SWIM MEETS & EVENTS:

RFSC Mock Meet- Friday October 1st @ 6:00pm: This is an RFSC event only, it is unsanctioned, so the times are unofficial, but it is a great opportunity for swimmers to practice racing and learn the format of how a swim meet works. Parents are welcome to attend as well, and we will talk through how a swim meet flows for you as well. Sign-up for the meet is available under the team event tab.

MISC INFORMATION:

TEAM SUIT ORDERING: Link to order/purchase your suits: https://zoneswimwear.com/collections/river-falls-swim-club

  • PASSWORD FOR ORDERING: GoRiverFalls

-Email Coach Michael if you want to set up a time to try the sizing kit in the pool office to verify you get the right size. Girls suits, the thick strap version and thin strap version fit and size differently, we only have the thick strap version of the suit as part of the sizing kit. If you decide you are going to order the thin strap suit, you will want to go one size larger than the suit you try on in the sizing kit.

-Swim suit purchases are a direct sale between the families and the vendor, they will ship the suits straight to your house after purchase. If there are issues with sizing, there is nothing that RFSC can do to assist you, you must reach out directly to the vendor to work on corrections.
