Hot Tub, Noise and Parent Supervision

With everyone finished with fall sports and in swimming full swing we have times at the pool where we are very busy. Because of this the noise level at the shallow end and hot tub has become a bit overwhelming. We have groups working hard to hear their coaches and focus on their swimming that are distracted by other swimmers, siblings and adults. To help us create the best learning environment for our swimmers please follow these guidelines:
  • Limit Hot Tub use to 5 minutes. PARENT SUPERVISION is REQUIRED for any swimmer in the hot tub.
  • NO adults and siblings in the coaches and swimmers prep area please. All adults and sibling should utilize the seating along the south and east side of the pool.
  • Children not in practice must be supervised at ALL times.
  • Please speak with coaches prior to the start of practice or when the coach has finished their groups for the day. Please avoid interrupting a coach during practice time.
Thank you to everyone for helping us create a positive and productive learning environment for our swimmers.

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.
