FMST B Meet Info and Practice Schedule This Week

posted Jul 8, 2014, 5:49 AM by Fort Myer Swim Team   [ updated Mar 25, 2015, 7:10 PM by Mark Tramontozzi ]
Please make every effort to get your swimmers signed up in advance of our B meets. The sign up sheets go up on Saturday and are in the pool house until Tuesday afternoon. Also, permission for breastroke, fly and IM for anyone under 10 is required. Coaches give that permission verbally to them at the meets. Sometimes decisions are made based on timing of the meet (as in, do we even have time to get to IMs or not) and sometimes they are made based on whether they are legal in the stroke. If you child is not yet legal in the stroke, they will likely NOT be given permission to swim.

For tonight, please arrive at Chinquapin by 5pm.
Address is: 1609 Cameron St. Alexandria, VA 22314.Directions: The Old Town Pool is on a one way street in Old Town Alexandria, beside the King Street Metro. From King Metro, continue on King Street, turn left at Harvard St. The pool is on the right at the end of the block.

The Old Pool parking lot off of Cameron Street, to the best of their ability, is reserved for the visiting team. Additional parking is available behind Jefferson Houston Elementary school and on nearby streets.

THEME IS Red, white and blue! Happy early birthday, America!

**Weather: We will aim to get an email out if for any reason the meet is canceled due to weather today. You can also call the pool at 703-838-4671 to check on the status of the pool (if it's closed, meet is off).

In light of the many absences we have this week and the holiday, we will move to a modified practice schedule for Thursday and Friday practice. Our goal is to get the lineup out tomorrow mid-morning. Only kids swimming in Saturday's meet are required to attend practice on Friday, otherwise - enjoy a day off! For exhibition swimmers and 6 and unders, practice on Friday is optional.

Practices will be:
13 and older will practice 645am - 815am. (we will still run)
12 and under will practice from 815am - 915am.
