*Our season is winding down, tomorrow is the last practice before our biggest meet of the season! It is the coaches breakfast with the 15/18, 13/14 and 6 and under/learn to swim age group.
**Friday there is no practice. Swimmers should be resting, and our Carb Loading pasta feed is Friday night. It is a great team bonding event! The swimmers get excited about the meet, they can make posters, decorate their cars, and just get psyched up about the meet! Please consider attending. It is $1.00 per person, as a donation for the supplies, remember to bring your chairs or blankets to sit on, the food item you signed up to bring and drinks for your family! We have lots of raffle items as well! Arrive after 5 30.
If you want to pay your balance for the invitational swim meets, ECI and Battle of the ages, as well as swim a thon, we can collect those balances Friday night as well.
***League meet is at the same pool we swam at last Saturday! American Canyon High school. We are on the basketball courts and space is limited, Please consider sharing canopies with other families! Our Team warm ups are from 7 30- 7 45. Warm ups are very important it’s a chance for swimmers to get a feel of the pool, see what it’s like to dive/back stroke start, and to turn. We know it is early, but it will be worth it for your swimmer! Please arrive at the pool no later than 7 15. The meet will start at 8 30 a.m. A work schedule for our team will be sent out shortly. If you are able to help with set up on Friday afternoon at the pool from 1-5 Please let me know so I can put you in touch with our league rep. We will also need 3 volunteers to help with clean up after the meet. For families that are still in need of work credit points this is another way to finish the season caught up. See the attached map.
****This meet has a coach’s relay at the end, and a parent relay, the parent relay consists of 2 men and 2 women. If anyone is interested in participating in the parent relay please contact me. A trophy and bragging rights are at stake.
*****Sunday evening is the after league swim party at our pool. At 530. Bring your dinner! Bring your drinks, suit and towel, and of course warm clothes, it can get pretty cold on deck. The kids swim, and celebrate the end of the season, then we will celebrate our Swimmers achievements from league and honor our ageing out swimmers!
