Good Morning Squids!

I can’t believe that time trials are TOMORROW! We have been working very hard these past few weeks. I am very excited to see how well everyone will swim.

Tomorrow, time trials will be run like a regular A meet minus the theme. Repeat no theme tomorrow. Come prepped to swim fast. A good way to do that is to get a good night sleep and eat a big pasta dinner tonight!

We are asking ALL SWIMMERS to arrive by 7 am. We will begin warm up at 7:15. The first group to warm up will be all squids ages 10 and under or any 11/12s who are new to swimming and don’t want to get run over by the big kids. The second group to warm up will be the 11 and up swimmers. PLEASE BE ON TIME! If you do not arrive by the time your warm up begins, you will be removed from the meet.

The meet will begin at 8 am.

Reminder: Please wear your team suit and cap. If you are not wearing a team suit and cap you will not swim.

We are also asking ALL VOLUNTEERS to please arrive by 6:30-6:45 so we can set up the pool J

After warm-ups, just like any other home meet, I would like all of the squids to go to the hill and do cheers. Yes, we are not swimming another team BUT this is good practice for real A meets. The 15-18s will lead the cheers per usual. I want to see A LOT of spirit and cheering tomorrow. The cheering doesn’t end after we do team cheers. If you are not swimming, you should be on the fence cheering on your fellow squids!!!!

After cheers, we will start passing out time cards. Again, 15-18s will help out with this. Example: They will call out 8 and unders swimming freestyle and then all of the swimmers with cards will go to clerk of course. Clerk of course is where the swimmers will be organized before they swim. It is in the grass past the gazebo. Please remind your swimmer not to destroy their time card. It makes it very difficult to write down their times on a wet, ripped card. Thank you in advance.

Please do not leave once you are done with your events. After time trials, we will be taking the team picture and having the team picnic! At the picnic, we will make big little introductions!!!! Wooo!!!

Get excited!!!!!

See everyone at practice today!
