Day 1 – Season 2018-2019

Monday, Nov 12 = Day 1 in the water!
Be ready to swim with suit and goggles and practice cap for long hair people. (doesn’t need to be the team suit for practices. Team suit for meets though can be ordered top left here of the front page of the team website.) I’ll be able to distribute team caps for new swimmers that have all clearances done.
Bring a water bottle.

Season Practice Schedule:
Mon-Thur 7:30p-9:30p
Fri 4:15p-6p (bus from school leaves 3:25p)
No practice Thanksgiving day. I’ll get back to you on that Friday. But YES, Mandatory practice Mon-Wed on Thanksgiving week! It all counts! 1st meet in 1 month! (on Tues Dec 11)

If you Don’t have your Clearance on Day 1, make sure you show up anyways to get a partial credit for attendance. You’ll want to be there for information, and especially first-year swimmers, to listen in on stroke technique, super important!!

I’ll be there a bit early this evening (7pm’ish) so I can start checking off clearance stuff too for those that can get there as well.

  • Meet INFO (docx)
  • Senior Swim Bio form (pdf)  (Seniors: download and print out, fill out. Due Friday morning at the meet)
  • TIMERS— I just found out late Wed eve. they at some point Did switch and decided to assign our team a Timing Lane this year (and never told me they made that change after-the-fact) ah well, we will do what we can on Short notice!.. So, anywhere anyone can help out Please let me know ASAP thanks!!!!
    They also assigned Sandy a lane, and Sandy has only 12 swimmers on their team (they were large in the past), so that won’t work either! If we fill out ours and people can still volunteer, I’m sure Sandy would appreciate too! And remember, timers have the best front row seats in the house 😉
    For Putnam though, we need 2 timers for each time slot. (Timers and Chaperones get in Free to note) If you can do more than one, Awesome, let me know!

  • –> Psych Sheet!!!<—
    (note: wrong time for Megan 200 Free 2:16’ish? and Lauren 100 Br 1:32.24, no worries – outside smokers! Maybe some others. I didn’t necessarily get all the last meet’s new times in there 😉
    Note the girls “A” 200 Free Relay… no pressure or anything 😉 – Based on PR splits offhand.
    The Girls Medley A Relay is not the correct time: 2:13 so should be seated 4th.
