This week we resume our normal practice times. I will present the times below as when we are allowed on the boards, but would like the divers to show up 10 – 15 minutes prior to stretch and be ready to dive. Since we don’t have the dry-land facility right now we will meet on the pool deck.
See you this evening!
I hope your break was a good one. Here are some notes for this week:
1. Practice schedule
We will follow our regular practice schedule this week. Please attend practice based on which team you are on (i.e., JV, Varsity Level 2, Varsity Level 1, or dive).
2. Team gear order
Please continue to fill out the google form for team gear. The order is due on Nov. 29th. If you are still having problems getting into the form, please talk to or email Liz Hudd at firstname.lastname@example.org.

3. Stress reduction meetings
We have changed the dates for these meetings to hopefully allow more girls to attend. The meetings will be on Mondays from 4:15 to 5pm. Here are the new dates:
4. Booster fees due
Just another friendly reminder to pay your booster fees! Thanks very much for your support. The following girls still need to pay their fees:
Our team pictures are scheduled for Thursday, December 14th. Please wear you team suit! We will have pictures starting directly after school with individual shots and then the team picture. I would anticipate the pictures will take at least 30-40 minutes.
I will send out a group email tonight, but just a reminder that practice is from 2 to 3 pm for swimmers and 3 to 4 pm for divers.
Our normal practices start at 7:00pm (a half hour early) in the gym for dryland. This Tuesday (11/14) is an exception when we will be practicing after school from 2:45pm – 4:00pm with the swim team.
We are in our first week of practice, which will serve as the week of tryouts for the team. Here are some notes for this week. Divers, also look for a separate email from Brett with any additional information.
1. Practice schedule
Until we complete tryouts, all swimmers will practice together. All divers will also practice together. Here is the schedule for this week:
Tuesday ~7:30-8:45 pm (see details below)
Monday 7:30-8:45 pm
Wednesday 7:30-8:45 pm
Thursday no practice
Friday 7:30-8:45 pm
2. Team suit order
Our team suit deadline for ordering was Sunday, Nov. 12th. If you were not able to order in time, please email me or Liz Hudd ASAP! For any girls who do not make the team, we will be sure to refund your money.
3. Swim time trials, Tuesday evening
Our time trials will be on Tuesday, Nov. 14th. Please arrive at the pool around 7:30 pm so that we can get girls organized. We will be warming up briefly at 7:45pm. Athletes will compete in the 100 IM, 50 Back, 50 Breast, 50 Free, and 50 Fly (time permitting).
4. Thanksgiving break practice schedule
Here is our practice schedule for Thanksgiving break. If you are not able to make these practices, please plan to work out on your own!! We are just starting the season, so taking a week off from working out is not a good idea.
Monday: 2:00-3:00 pm swim, 3:00-4:00 pm dive
Tuesday: 2:00-3:00 pm swim, 3:00-4:00 pm dive
Wednesday: 2:45-4:00 pm swim and dive
Thursday: no practice, Happy Thanksgiving!
Friday: 2:45-4:00 pm swim and dive
5. Booster club president and booster fees
To the best of my knowledge, we are still looking for a booster club president. If you have already volunteered, thanks very much! If you would like to volunteer, please email Laura Clayton at email@example.com. Also, please pay your booster fee on the team website this week if you are confident that you will make the team. Payment can be made on the parents tab of the website.
6. Team captains
We will be voting for swim team captains this Thursday before we go on break. Brett will be dealing separately with choosing a dive captain. Any seniors who are swimmers can introduce themselves to the team prior to the vote before Thursday practice.
7. Email list
If you know of someone who is not receiving these emails, please have them email me a reminder and I will get them added. My apologies to anyone who has already emailed me and is not on this list. I will be going back through my email to catch any that I missed.
Thanks and see you at the pool,
