Update from Coach Kyle


* Great job to those that swam at the meet this weekend. Ribbons will be in the family files. 

*Senior swimmers. Get your entries in for the Gilroy Senior Open Meet it closes this Wednesday. 

*We still have a lot of families that have not ordered team suits. One of the requirements for being on the team is ordering a team suit. NorCal swim shop will be on deck tomorrow to size and order suits. Also it would be good to buy some clear goggles as it is getting dark during practice. 

*For the pizza party incentive the Senior group has 1 out of 4 new swimmers. The Junior group has 3 out of 4 new swimmers. Riptide 3 has 1 out of 4 new swimmers.  Riptide 1 has 1 out of 4 new swimmers. Keep talking to your friends about how much fun you are having at practice and get them to come try the team out!
