Coaches Newsletter # 9

Good Morning,

 January/February practice Calendar.  On the list of events below I have those that have made qualifying times for state under the championship dates. Once we get one 9/10 boy and 8&Under boy qualified for state we will then add all 8&Under boys and 9/10 boys to the list so we can have relays J.

Winter get together:
I talked to some of the kids at the ICE meet, we thought it would be fun to do a winter party for the USA team. I have talked to other teams and they do team outings and other team functions to help the families get to know each other better. With our team being a small close knit group of swimmers we don’t need to do as much but it would be fun to do something. Let me know if anyone is interested in hosting/organizing something for the team to do together either over break or after the first of the year.

CIA Meet:
CIA information. Entries and fees are due back to the pool or via email to Jennie by December 31st. Please let me know if you need assistance with events. We will have relays for this meet. They are mixed so please indicate on your form if you do NOT want your swimmer on relays.
