January & February Meets

Fortunately, we have been accepted into the UASC Triple Crown! However, we have been very concerned with the lack of good meet opportunities locally.  After looking at the information for upcoming local meets, we feel we have a decent solution that will prepare our swimmers most effectively to succeed at Championships.

Triple Crown - we will swim both days (relays have been eliminated from this meet).

Kelly German January 19-20 (Friday and Saturday only)
Scarlet 2 & Gold: 400 IM Friday; 100 free, 200 back and 200 fly Saturday.
Scarlet 1: 200 free & 200 IM Friday; 100 free, 200 back or 100 br, 200 fly or 100 IM Saturday.
Silver: Any events on Saturday
Junior: Lew’s choice Friday and Saturday

January 26-28 is the Indy meet for some of our swimmers, everyone else is eligible to attend the UAC Frosty Fun meet Sunday, 1/28 at CSG.  Last chance to qualify for Indy is at the Triple Crown.

February 3-4 we will add the GCSTO Last Ditch Meet on Saturday and Sunday only.  Swimmers participating at Indy should choose one day.  We have been very pleased with how our swimmers are competiting at this pool.

February 11, we will remove the meet at New Albany.  The coaches have never been very impressed with how we swim at this pool. With the addition of the GCSTO meet we feel it would better serve our swimmers to head to practice on that day.

Extra T-Shirts

The Pollock Family has donated about 60 t-shirts sporting the new team logo to our Booster Club. The shirts come in a variety of colors and sizes. Each family will have their chance to pick ONE shirt on Monday or Tuesday at practice. On Wednesday, any shirts remaining will be available to anyone. A donation to the booster club for your shirt is optional. The kids are now receiving their team t-shirts that were made exclusively for kids and coaches. Kast-A-Way has not yet printed our red t-shirts, if you would like to order one I suggest you call today. These shirts are being printed on a light weight t-shirt from Sport Tek.

Coach of the Year

Dear Coach, Hope this email finds you well and enjoying the summer. We are writing today on behalf of the upcoming feature film COACH OF THE YEAR: an independent, kid-friendly sports comedy feature film based on the inspiring true story of a rag tag swim team that tries to win a state championship…without a pool to practice in. Director Dave Stott, who has coached swimming for twenty years, hopes that with this film, we will entertain and inspire kids all over the country to learn to swim. Another goal of this film is to raise awareness about drowning as the leading cause of accidental deaths and to help kids all over the country learn to swim safely. The underdog story has been told before, but not for our sport. This is a movie for swimmers (and would-be swimmers), made by people who know the sport intimately and love it passionately, and we’d love for you to be involved. We wanted to ask you and your team to help spread the word about COACH OF THE YEAR, and get you & you

Is my child ready to swim meets?

We had a coaches discussion on this  - and yes, all of our Elite group swimmers are ready for meets.  Please look at the meet calendar and sign up for the days that you are available.  We will pick events that are appropriate for your swimmer.  We pick events that your child can do well and will build their confidence.  We also believe strongly in placing your child in events that will challenge them.  While we strive for excellence, making a mistake in an event is OK and can be a great learning experience.  Trying and failing is teaches a lot more  about your abilities than not trying at all.
