Michael White

Thank You

The Winter Classic is one of those meets that’s just an absolute bear to take on, but feels so good when the last car finally leaves the parking lot.  This is the 5th year we’ve hosted the massive 2.5 day meet, and it’s regularly brought huge numbers of swimmers (over 500!), great racing, and a ton of hard work from our team and our community.  Thanks to everyone who pitched in to do their part, and especially to those that did their part and even more.  In light of all of the setbacks and changes in the last year and a half, getting ready for finals on Saturday was one of the first “normal” feelings we’ve been able to capture in a long time.  Congratulations, everyone.

Meet Deadlines

We’ve got several meet deadlines coming up in the next few days:

  • Next Wednesday’s Mile Day at SPHS deadline is Thursday
  • Elmbrook’s Escape to Hawaii meet deadline is Thursday
  • The Clintonville travel meet for our 12&U swimmers deadline is 1/1
  • The Rising Stars Dual against Lodi deadline is 1/1

Break Schedule

 

Swimcloud Meeting

A week from today, we’ll have a Zoom meeting to discuss Swimcloud for our 11&O swimmers and parents.  We’ll start by highlighting the video analysis that swimmers can utilize, and then we’ll move to some of the college swimming features it offers.  The meeting is Monday, December 27th at 6:30 via Zoom.

Cooking Class

Due to a high school meet on Tuesday, January 4th we’ll be re-arranging our schedule a bit which will move our Senior 1&2 swimmers to the morning.  In the evening, the Senior 1&2 group will be headed to The Petite Chef (119 N Main Street Dousman, WI) for a bit of a cooking competition/team building event (think Netflix’s “Nailed It”).  The signup is open for swimmers and accounts will be billed $25.

Board & Brush

Our social events don’t stop with the swimmers.  On January 21st, we’ll be getting the parents together for an evening of art, socialization, and libation at the Board & Brush.  The event is from 6:30-9:30 and will be a great opportunity to meet other parents on the team without the overwhelming smell of chlorine.  Register for the event here.
