Weekly Update 13

November 25, 2014

Happy Thanksgiving!


There is NO practice this Thursday due to Thanksgiving.


Riptide 1-3 do not have practice Friday or Saturday (unless they have qualified for Winter Championships then they have practice Saturday morning.) 


Friday’s practice for Junior and Senior groups will be announced.  Saturday practice for Seniors/Juniors/Riptide 2 is the same as regular Saturday practice.


Great job at the swim meets this weekend!  We had many new best times and hopefully a lot of fun at the Cranberry Classic!  Meet highlights will be shared soon.


Entries for the 14 & Under Winter Championships are due by Wednesday Night.  In order to be qualified for this meet, a Junior Olympic Time Standard needs to be achieved.  To view these Time Standards, go to www.pacswim.org or check the listing posted on the window of the office at the pool.  Coaches will enter swimmers into the relays.


These swimmers are entered as Relay Swimmers in the Winter Champs Meet.  Some swimmers may be alternates. Relays are on Saturday (Dec. 6) and Sunday (Dec. 7), so mark these dates on your calendar.  Relays are swum after finals, so they take place during the evening.  Coaches will let the swimmers know which relays the swimmers will be on once the relays are finalized.

Apparel Update:  Most of the apparel is now in. We are still waiting on a few more beanies.  We have placed the apparel in the kitchen at the pool with your order form on top with your name on it.  Please pick it up as soon as possible.
