Hello Piranhas, what an awesome first couple weeks back! Every group has been putting in lots of work on our fundamentals: kicking, sculling, and breathing! We will send out a newsletter at the start of every month, to give everyone an update on covid rules, any schedule changes and any events that we have going on.
Everyone: One big Covid update that will affect most people is the mask mandate. We are asking swimmers 9 and up to wear a mask in common spaces such as the pool deck and the changeroom. Please make sure your swimmer comes to the pool with a mask. If your swimmer is wanting to swim in the water after practice they must have an active pass that they have to scan, or pay the drop in fee before getting back in. If swimmers would like to use the hot tub after practice they are allowed to stay there for 10 minutes after their practice and then they must leave. No practice this Monday, we will still have practice on Sunday the 10th, but Monday the 11th is canceled for all groups!
Little Pool: (minis, big fish groups) From now on we will be asking parents to pick up their swimmers at door 33 (the same door you drop them off at). The coaches have found the last few weeks a little stressful with not knowing where each swimmer is getting picked up from, therefore we are asking everyone to get picked up from the same place!
Waterpolo: The piranhas have a water polo team! We practice from 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm on Saturday nights! Junior splash and up is invited to try a drop in sessions. We work on fitness for the first 30 minutes, the coach then leads them through passing, and shooting drills, and we finish every session off with a scrimmage. This session is perfect for anyone who wants to spend some more time in the water! It is a very beginner class, as long as you can swim 100m on your own and can tread water, you will be fine! It is super fun and we are looking for more swimmers to register so please come check it out!
Masters: Our masters have started up! We swim Monday and Wednesday night from 8:00 pm - 9:15 pm and Sunday morning from 8:00 am - 9:15 am. We still have availability every day, but we are filling up! This group is meant for all levels of swimmers! We are a part of MSABC, so if anyone would want to compete in the masters competition you would be able to! Please consider joining because we would love to have you there!
I hope you all have an amazing weekend and please reach out if you have any questions. You can try the head coach email on the website although, I know it was bouncing for some people this summer. If that’s the case please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get back to you as soon as possible, keep in mind that I am in school so it will take me a few days to reply if it is not urgent! Thank you, and have an awesome week!
