Swim Team Update June 7
We are well into our second week of practice and heading into our season very quickly. We have Time Trials this weekend and from there the summer (literally) swims by!
Afternoon practices will continue for the rest of this week and next week, as well.
Friday night we will have a casual gathering at the back patio area at 6:30 pm. Feel free to bring a cooler and dinner to hang out with some swim families. We will set up the pool starting at 7:45 pm for Time Trials. It does not take long to set up the pool for the meet, but many hands make light work! If you've never helped before, we can show you the ropes.
The coaches are putting together Black and Yellow teams for Saturday's time trials; they will let your swimmer know which color they will be. More details to follow.
This 'meet' is for the swimmers to get times for their swims/strokes so the coaches can put together competitive meets. Swimmers will swim freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly. If your swimmer isn't proficient (legal) in a stroke, they won't be required to swim that stroke on Saturday. If you have questions about all this, please reach out to the team reps.
If your swimmer is unable to attend Time Trials, have them talk to Coach Joe to see what can be done to get their times.
Please use the Sign Up Calendar under the Meets and Events tab on the website. You will let us know if your swimmer is available and you can also sign up to work the meet. We will need a lot of parent support for this meet since we aren't splitting duties with another swim team. All deck officials and volunteers will be Kings Ridge family members, so please volunteer if you are able.
**We don't hold our volunteers to a required number of hours or jobs, we assume that you want to be involved with your child's sport. There is a great raffle at the end of the year and every time you volunteer your name is entered!**
Dave Charbonneau (Officials Coordinator) and Tyler Cade (Chief Timer) will be making sure all of our officials and timers spots are filled.
Our awesome concessions team will be there serving up breakfast (burritos, donuts, muffins, coffee) and lunch options (burgers/hot dogs) and assorted candy and drinks that your swimmers know and love! throughout the meet. Come hungry! Cash only, please.
