We will have a going away party for Coach Susanne and family, Coach Kelsey, and Alexis next Tuesday 7/28/15 at Northside pool from 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm. We are collecting money for gifts for the Coaches. Ning Chang is collecting money for Coach Susanne's gift and either myself or Tracy Taylor is collecting for Coach Kelsey's gift. Please try to get any donations to us by Thursday as some of us are travelling to Senior State this weekend.
We will be having hotdogs, drinks, and are asking families to bring a side dish or dessert for the party. Signup for number attending and what you are bringing is at Northside pool.
On Monday 7/27/15 there will be a fun meet for Bronze, Silver, Summer league and PC3 to compete in. We would appreciate any help from Gold, Junior and Senior groups for timing and cheering on!
There is a sign up for that meet also at Northside, after the meet there will be a pizza party and fun swimming in the pool! That will be from 5:00 - 7:00 pm also.
The last practices for the summer will be either this Thursday or Friday depending on your group's schedule.
We will take a team wide break from 7/27 - 8/16 during which time the pool will be refinished and tile replaced on the ends of the pool. Many have worked hard to raise funds for this venture and I am excited to be returning to practice on 8/17 to have a fresh new look.
In order to have the pool done over the break with no weather interruptions, they have asked us to pull the roof panels over the top so the pool may remain completely dry. I am hoping to get some of these done on Monday and Tuesday of next week prior to the festivities. It would be great if we could get some strong folks to help out at 4:30 pm on Monday and Tuesday at 4:30 pm we have at least 4 panels to pull.
New Pre-Comp classes will be starting August 31-Oct. 22nd. Download the form and come by the pool to register your child. Classes will be offered on Mon & Wed., or Tues & Thurs. . Class times will be 4:15 or 4:45. Space is limited.
