Any Emperor or King swimmer (targeted to middle school and high school swimmers) that can get to practice on time may attend the 3:34-5:30 pm practice on Monday -OR- Wednesday. If you cannot be on time, DO NOT ATTEND the after-school practices. Emps and Kings can choose either Monday or Wednesday, NOT BOTH, to avoid overcrowding.

Emps and Kings attending one after-school practice during the week can replace one of their late night practices.

**NEW PARENTS-You were sent an e-mail with the Fall Conditioning Practice Schedule. If you did not receive the e-mail, then Coach Chris does not have your e-mail address. Please e-mail her.

Dear Penguin Parents and Swimmers,

The practice schedule for the first two weeks of Fall Conditioning and other team information is listed below. Swimmers that registered for Fall Conditioning have been assigned to a practice group (1 through 8) and groups can be viewed by clicking “Read Full Article” at the top of this message. Since it is likely more swimmers will register for Fall Conditioning and groups will change, I will wait until October 1st to assign swimmers to the Blues / Royals / Rockhoppers / Emperors / Kings groups. For the month of September, the practice groups are identified as 1 through 8. If a swimmer is assigned to an inappropriate practice group, a change will be made and you will be notified. Swimmers should only attend their scheduled practices. The practice schedule for the rest of September will be updated later.

FINS: Most 11 and over swimmers will be required to have fins this season. Swimmers who are required to have fins will be notified when they should start bringing them to practice. They are not needed yet.

If you have any questions, please let me know.
Swimcerely, Coach Chris

ALL EVENING PRACTICES ARE INDOORS THIS WEEK. MORNING PRACTICES ARE OUTSIDE.

** PLEASE, if you are unsure when you are scheduled to practice, please e-mail Coach Chris. If you miss your practice, there is no make-up. **

For Champs week, swimmers should attend all practices based on their entered events at Champs, age group, names or practice group noted. This practice format before Champs has been very effective in previous years because swimmers have the opportunity to fine-tune their Champs events. Please try and attend all scheduled practices as noted. You need to know your Champs events to determine your practice schedule. Champs events are available under DOWNLOADS / INFORMATION. If you can’t access this information, please e-mail Coach Chris.

FOR EXAMPLE, if you are swimming the 50 back and the 50 fly at Champs, you should attend both Sunday practices: 4:45-5:30 pm and 6:30-7:30 pm. It is possible some swimmers will be scheduled in the morning and afternoon. Please attend both if possible.

If you did not sign up for Champs, but ARE swimming in the Mt. Vernon meet, you can attend a practice on Sunday 7/9 or Monday morning 7/10 based on your entry events at Mt. Vernon. All other practices are for Champs swimmers only.

Swimmers with fins should start bringing them to practice on Sunday. Since we're just two weeks away from Champs, we will use them, but not extensively; HOWEVER, fins will be used for winter season ... which starts in September!

If you haven't received your fins yet, you can pick them up at Sunday's practice.

PARENT VOLUNTEERS FOR CHAMPS ARE NEEDED! You can signup at the bulletin board or on your meet signup form. We need every parent to help out, please!

All evening swim practices Monday through Friday start OUTDOORS from 7:00-8:00 pm. If it is too chilly for your swimmer, you may want to reconsider bringing them to practice. The outdoor pool is heated, but there is no control on the weather or air temperature. (At 8:00 pm on these evenings, we move indoors).

It's going to warm up later this week.
