Hello Everyone!

 

Great work on making it through the first two weeks of the season! Few updates from me for this week!

 

PRACTICE INFO

Practices continue this week as normal, Monday thru Friday from 315pm - 445pm at WL. Thanksgiving week next week we will ONLY practice Monday and Tuesday. Enjoy your Thanksgiving break and we'll see you back after Thanksgiving when we get into meet season!

 

Also, early heads up that our Holiday Break practice (Christmas/Holiday break) will be: 

Dec 20-23 (Mon-Thu) 9:30-11:30 am

Dec 28 – 30 (Tue-Thu) 9:30-11:30 am

 

As a reminde,r unless you are a fulltime club swimmer, you are required to attend 4 of the 5 practices this week and 3 of the 4 starting next week thru the end of the season. If you have a special circumstance or issue, please communicate that with me and we can work something out. If you are a fulltime club swimmer, you are required to attend ONE full practice each week.

 

MEETS

NEW NEWS! We got the official word that our first meet against Herndon will be AT WL! Also, NEW NEWS! We will be able to swim a regular meet -- boys and girls TOGETHER! Woot Woot! I am not sure yet on total numbers of spectators/of people on deck and will let you know that info soon.

 

Diving will be held before swim, like pre-COVID days! Our swim meets will start around 6/630pm.

 

Also, for club swimmers -- I know there are a few club meets the first two weeks of December. If you are not swimming in the evening finals, the expectation is that you will attend the WL meet. We will work to keep your events 'easy' (relays, etc) -- if you're tapered for these meets, its a great time to get some cut times for High School swimming also! Please keep me posted on your status with finals as soon as you know.

GEAR Gear store is open until Friday at 10am. PLEASE get your orders placed ASAP -- a swim suit, t-shirt and caps are required. Shop here: https://wlswimdive2021.itemorder.com/sale

 

PARENT VOLUNTEERS

Thank you so much to those of you who have reached out and offered to help. I am still looking for a few volunteers.

  • One Table worker per gender for each meet (ideally the same person for every meet) 
  • Someone to work the Colorado timing system at each home meet
  • Someone to set up our volunteer dinner and meet sign up genius (this is more urgent so we can get it done next week - one time help!) :)

 

FUNDRAISER

We will be participating in the WL Holiday Bazaar on 12/4 at WL from 10am until we sell out. We sell pre-made cookie jar mix and the proceeds go to support senior night and record board updates. Everyone must participate/help sell jars! Also, if you are around for Thanksgiving, please get in touch with Cooper Donovan - he will be hosting the 'jar making' activity over Thanksgiving break. We usually only need about 10 or so people to help!

 

Let me know if you have any questions!

 

Best,

Coach Kristina

WL Swim and Dive Email 1

Hello Everyone!

 

First up, thank you to those of you who attended the team interest meeting and parent information night! I'll do a quick review of the basics here, just so we're all starting out on the same page! If you are receiving this email and no longer are interested in being on the team, please let me know.

 

Second, we are an email dependent team. I aim to send one email per week (usually by Wednesday) with all the information you need for the week/weekend ahead. Please be sure you have a current email address on file that you check regularly. While the emails can be long (sorry!) - everything you need to know typically is included so please read the whole email! We will also put all key information on our team website as well.

 

Now... on to the rest of the info!

 

PRACTICE INFO (BEFORE THANKSGIVING) - STARTS MONDAY!

Our practices are held Monday thru Friday from 315pm - 445pm at WL. After Thanksgiving, we move to Monday thru Thursday practices (same time). Divers: You will finish practice at 430pm each day, but follow the same schedule and requirements otherwise.

 

Unless you are a fulltime club swimmer, you are required to attend 4 of the 5 practices each week. If you have a special circumstance or issue, please communicate that with me and we can work something out. If you are a fulltime club swimmer, you are required to attend ONE full practice each week.

 

We start practice on Monday, 11/8 at 315pm. Please come ready to swim/dive! :)

 

MEETS

Meets are held on Friday evenings, usually starting around 6pm. When we get closer to our first meet, I will send out more information about how they will go -- but, as of now, we WILL have split gender meets so that we can have spectators present. Our meet schedule is posted on our team website. We will aim to continue with live streaming our meets for those who don't feel comfortable or aren't able to attend in person.

 

TEAM DINNERS

We will be restarting our weekly Thursday pasta dinners this year! They will be held at WL verse a family home to allow for more distancing opportunities. We will still organize them potluck style and ask for one or two 'host' families to coordinate (set up/clean up) the meal. More info on this to come!

 

GEAR Our gear store is open! Please get your orders placed as soon as possible -- a tswim suit, tshirt and caps are required. All orders are due 11/16. Shop here: https://wlswimdive2021.itemorder.com/sale  

PARENT VOLUNTEERS

I am in desperate need of a few very critical parent volunteers this year – please let me know if you are able to help with any of the following. If we don’t have enough volunteers, we will not be able to run our season. 

  • Someone to assist in managing team times/computer data, using the HyTek program.
  • Head Official (assist in coordinating our officials for each meet and also officiate) 
  • One Table worker per gender for each meet (ideally the same person for every meet) 
  • Someone to work the Colorado timing system at each home meet

 

We will do a sign-up genius for each meet and for team dinners but would like to get the above folks lined up now, if possible.

Dive parents - Coach Johnston will be in touch on your specific volunteer needs.

PHYSICALS

As a reminder – please get your physical and parent permission forms turned in ASAP. They are required to participate in any sport at WL. New news this year – all submissions can now be done online! For more information, please check the WL Athletics website here: https://wlathletics.org/main/otherad/contentID/840736

 

Look forward to seeing you all on Monday!

 

Best,

Coach Kristina
