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,
