Senior Swimmers/Parents:  


Reed from Nor Cal Swim Shop will be coming down on Friday, November 21, to give a talk on the opportunities of swimming in college.  The meeting will begin at 6:30 pm at the home of the Blodgett’s (6920 Azalea Drive San Jose, CA 95120).  Pizza will be served.  If you are attending, please RSVP to eblodgett@mindspring.com or let Coach Kyle know.


Reed will also be at the pool during practice on November 21st for fittings and sales. This is a great opportunity to get Holiday/Christmas gifts.  It is also a good opportunity to purchase clear goggles, now that it is dark during practice.


Apparel Update:  Some of the apparel that we ordered has arrived.  We are still waiting on zip up sweatshirts and all hats, visors, and beanies, as these are currently being embroidered. We expect these to be done in the next week and a half. 


We do have orders for the following families and Amber will be at the pool today (Monday) from 7:15 to 7:30 pm and tomorrow (Tuesday) from 3:30-3:45 and 5:00-5:15 pm with your orders.  If you need to make special arrangements, please email Amber Macias.


Dworkin       Quast      Elliott     Swinnen     Smith, Hannah     

Orth             Koskie     Swartz   Mazzocco  Roberts, Kylie

Rockwell      Belluci     Thiara   Belluscio     Sosa      Peck


If you are not on the list, that is because your order included a zip up sweatshirt.  Amber will email again when the final order is complete.


Our next Hot Chocolate Day for our swimmers is scheduled for Tuesday, November 25.


In order to make communication as easy as possible for our families, I am listing the email addresses for our coaching staff below.
