January Intra-squad Meet:

Thank you so much to all of you that helped make our first intra-squad meet a success this past weekend. We could not have made that event possible without the support of so many volunteers. We had a little over 60 swimmers compete in the meet. For many it was their first meet since February of 2020. It feels great to be back on the pool deck for a meet again and see the swimmers hard work pay off in that setting.

Future Meets:

We are working diligently to provide as many safe opportunities for our athletes to compete. By early next week we will update everyone on those opportunities through March.

Swim Team Session Dates:

Since we have been operating on a month by month basis since September, there has not been any set session end dates posted. We will continue to operate in the same fashion until the week of March 22. At that time we will take a break from swim team programming for either 2-3 weeks. Swimmers participating during the month of March will receive a prorated fee based on the break.

Monthly Payments:

Just a reminder that all monthly payments are due by the 1st of the month. If you are not set up with online payments through the team website, you will need to deliver or mail a check to the YMCA. The monthly fees cover the previous month’s expenses. For example, the February payment covers your swimmers practice and meet fees from January. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Coach Eric.

High School Girls:

The alternate season for SPASH girl’s swimmers begins February 8th. Those girls will only be charged for that first week when they are practicing here. I understand that there may be some girls still on the fence about whether or not they will be participating in that school season. If you are planning on swimming for SPASH in the next two weeks, please let me know. This will help in potentially merging the two senior groups if the numbers allow.
