Spring & Summer Schedule

Our spring practice schedule and Spring/Summer fees are now available on the website and teamapp.
Registration is NOT required of returning swimmers.  Simply send Laurie and email that you wish to swim and we will invoice you.

New this season- Challenge Weeks.  During challenge weeks, we will challenge each training group to try something new and extend their swimming in a way that they haven't before.  Challenge weeks will start on the last Monday of every month (April 30, May 28 and June 25).  There will be an additional challenge week for Scarlet Gold swimmers the week of April 9.  The schedule for challenge week will be as follows:
  • Senior and Junior, no change in schedule.  
  • Scarlet Gold follows the Junior schedule and will train with Junior. We ask that swimmers help each other carpool so that they can attend all 5 practices (Sunday through Thursday) during this week.  This will be an increased opportunity to grow your training in a new way and challenge yourself to reach a higher level.
  • Scarlet 2, Silver 2, Scarlet 1 and Silver 1:
    • Mondays, no schedule change, focus on learning a new technique skill.
    • Tuesdays and Wednesdays all swimmers 6-7:45     
    • Thursdays, all swimmers 4:45-6:30
    • Sundays, no change 
    • *We ask that every swimmer try to attend all four weekday practices during challenge week.  We will learn a new technique skill on Mondays then apply it in various ways through the week.  There will be no penalty for low attendance during this week (beyond the lost growth opportunity).
  • Intro: Intro group will swim with Silver 1 on Monday from 6-7 and Thursday from 5:45-6:30

Girls and Boys Practices will return this spring to Sundays.  We love this and would certainly do it more often if we could figure out how to make it more convenient.

Summer Training - summer is a great time to add more to your swim schedule.  The kids do not have the stress of school and homework, which allows many to have increased focus at practice.  We expect to have morning practices at a local outdoor pool (Minerva Park is our first choice) and afternoon/evenings at the sports club.

Summer meets- there are not many! They are posted on our Google event calendar.  We continue to look for a good July opportunity for the swimmers.

Move Ups- any changes in group will be sent by early next week.  Please keep in mind that if you are invited to the next higher group you may choose to remain in your current group.

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.
