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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.

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.
