I hope everyone is enjoying their summer vacation. Practice will officially start on Monday, Aug 16th at the rec center. Please make sure you have all of your forms completed and submitted to the athletic office before the start of practice on the 16th. Please check the calendar for all practice times and meets. Meets have been moved this year to Tuesday's, which is a big switch from years past. Once school starts we will go to our normal schedule of practicing after school Mon, Wed, and Thursday, with 6 am on Friday's and 8 am on Saturday's.
Mon Aug 16 - Thurs Sept 2nd practice will be at the rec center as follows:
6:10 am - 7:45 am: Mon Aug 16th - Fri. Aug 20th (Lift at the HS Tues/Thurs at 8 am)
7:30 am - 9:15 am: Mon Aug 23th - Fri Aug 27th (Lift at the HS Tues/Thurs at 9:30 - 10:00)
7:00 am - 9:00 am: Mon Aug 30th, Wed Sept 1st and Thurs Sept 2nd (Lift at the HS Tues/Fri)
Tuesday Aug. 17th will be the first lifting session at the HS 8:00 - 8:45. This first session is intended for all swimmers to learn proper form and technique as well as the routine. We will be lifting on Thurs and sat during the season.
As of right now, after the 2nd we will be practicing at the High school.
---In case of bad weather, check your email/text. I send an email to all families and text the captains to let the team know if we are moving to the HS pool due to bad weather.
---Come with your suit, goggles and any other training equipment you have, ready to swim.
We cover a lot of new material in the first weeks of practice, and practice attendance is mandatory.
******Make sure you have all your forms submitted on gopark by sat Aug 14th, if you are not on my roster you can not swim. Be proactive and get your forms turned in ahead of time, please!
ATTENTION ALL JR HIGH SWIMMERS:
You are not automatically on the team. There will be an evaluation process that is determined by the coaches. This process will start the first day of the season and last until Friday September 3rd, at which time you will be notified if you make the team.
---If you were already on the team last year, you do not need to go through the evaluation process.
