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.

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.

There have been several updates to the practice schedule due to overcrowding in some groups. If you updated your calendar at home, please double-check it against the calendar on the website.

Some groups will start DRYLAND CONDITIONING practice this week. Swimmers must arrive on time for dryland which will be held in the grassy area of the outdoor pool in most cases. If you are unable to arrive ON TIME for dryland, please attend SWIM practice only. There is a ZERO TOLERANCE policy during dryland conditioning. Dryland is a privilege, and any disruption, talking, fooling around, lack of effort, disrespecting coaches or teammates and not following instruction will be cause for immediate dismissal from dryland conditioning for the summer. Swimmers attending dryland will be advised of this policy. Parents will be notified if a swimmer is dismissed from dryland. DRYLAND ATTIRE: Tennis shoes, t-shirt and shorts.

Here is the updated practice schedule this week:

Click on "READ FULL ARTICLE" for summer practice groups. Practices will begin Tuesday, May 15th. We will utilize the outdoor pool from 5:30-7:30ish and then move indoors after 7:30. Due to excessive swimmers in the Emperors and Kings groups, the Emperors have been split into two groups: Emps 1 and Emps 2. If there is overcrowding at practice, other groups will be refined further. Please check the calendar for the latest schedule updates.

If the coaches determine a swimmer is in an inappropriate practice group at any time, a change will be made.

PRACTICES WILL BE HELD RAIN OR SHINE; however, thunder and/or lightening will suspend practice. Please call the YMCA if there is threatening weather at your home before bringing your swimmer to practice. Also, check the website daily for schedule updates and announcements. There will be some chilly evenings for outdoor practices, and even though it's perfect Penguin weather, some of our own Penguins may be unable to complete practice due to air or water temperature. Swimmers will be excused, but must remain in the pool area with the coaches until a parent a arrives or practice ends. Please make sure your swimmer has adequate clothing attire/towel/shoes when they come to practice.

Practice will be held on Trick or Treat night for those that will attend practice. However, Kings and Emps 1 will be done at 8:30 pm. We expect light attendance that night so the older swimmers will try and start practice earlier.

Pre-Comp will be held as scheduled from 5:45-6:30 pm.
Rockhops will swim as scheduled from 6:30-7:30 pm.

Emps 1 and Kings: Dryland at 6:00 pm. If there is light Rockhop attendance, swim practice will begin at 6:30 pm and end at 8:30 pm. Either way, Emps 1 and Kings practice will end at 8:30 pm.

Practice for Kings/Emps will be held outdoors tonight!

Tomorrow night (Thursday) is the final scheduled "outdoor" practice. The temperature is expected to drop so if it's too chilly, we'll be indoors (with some limited indoor practice) and the "We Survived" celebration will go on as planned.

The October practice groups and schedule are now available. Please click on "READ FULL ARTICLE" to find your swimmer’s name in their practice group and review the practice times. (E-mail Coach Chris if your swimmer’s name is missing).

In order to schedule our large team in the pool time and lanes allocated for swim team, the swimmers are broken into 11 practice groups, but many practice groups swim at the same time. Special requests will not be accommodated unless your swimmer cannot attend MOST of their required practices on a regular basis. The schedule should offer enough options so that your swimmer can attend their required practices each week. The main scheduling hurdle is that fewer lanes are available early each evening, so it’s not possible to schedule ALL the younger swimmers early; however, effort was made so the same groups do not always end late. Swimmers scheduled after 8:30 pm will be excused upon request.

Fridays and Sundays are expected to be the least crowded practices. If the current schedule results in overcrowding during any time slots, the schedule will be changed or swimmers will be assigned to another group. If a swimmer’s group placement is not appropriate at any time during the season, a change will be made immediately.

OCTOBER PRACTICES BEGIN ON SUNDAY, OCTOBER 1st! This schedule is in effect until further notice, but check the website daily for updates / changes / additional practices!

The FINAL week of practice before CHAMPS is a special schedule. PLEASE REVIEW CAREFULLY AND ARRIVE EARLY SO SWIMMERS CAN STRETCH BEFORE THEY GET IN THE WATER! Swimmers may attend as many practices as noted by their event or age group. Some swimmers may attend more than one (1) practice on the same night if they are scheduled as such. We will be working on specific events, turns, starts and relays throughout the week. At minimum, 10 & under swimmers should attend two (2) practices; 11 & over swimmers should attend three (3) practices; however, it will be beneficial if swimmers can attend all their scheduled times. PLEASE, NO REQUESTS TO ATTEND AT TIMES OTHER THAN NOTED! Makeup times are available for some events, but should only be attended if you miss the originally scheduled practice.

Champs individual events for each swimmer are listed at the END of the practice schedule.

Dear Parents,

We are entering the final weeks of the 2005-2006 winter swim season. The swimmers have worked hard the past six months, astounded us with their improvement (1,994 PBs so far), and will begin the "march" from Powell to Athens on March 10th! The Penguins will compete with Pirahnas, Manta Rays, Stingrays, Sharks, Cardinals, Electric Eels, and Marlins to name a few. Approximately 1,300 swimmers from 21 teams will participate in League
Championships!

There may be a few practice schedule changes as we get closer to Champs so relays can practice together, but otherwise, only swimmers ATTENDING CHAMPS should continue to attend the regularly scheduled practices. (If you did not return your form or indicated you are not attending Champs, but have signed up for the Family Fun Meet, please do not attend practice this week. Our practices do not prepare you for the crazy relays at the Family Fun Meet).

Preliminary meet entries for Champs will be posted on the bulletin board on Wednesday night. Swimmers will be entered in the three (3) individual events that we expect they will place highest in based on last year's results. Relays
will be determined the week of Champs based on best/current times.

We are preparing your swimmers for the team's 4th appearance at SEOWV Winter League Championships and look forward to a Champs weekend full of excitement and PBs!

Swimcerely,
Penguin Coaches

To All,

All swimmers that were assessed and met the minimum swim team requirements should be listed in a group. If you did not need to be assessed and your name is not listed below or you suspect your name is missing from the list, please contact Coach Chris (crodawg99@aol.com).

Practice groups for the start of the season are determined by age, stroke competency, and/or a swimmer's times. Some swimmers will improve more quickly than others, and the swimmer will be moved to the next group when appropriate. If the coaches determine that a swimmer is in an inappropriate practice group at any time or if a particular group is overcrowded, changes will be made immediately and parents and swimmers will be notified. Swimmers that do not meet the expectations in their practice group will be moved to a more appropriate group if necessary.

Due to the large number of swimmers, it will not be possible to accommodate any practice schedule change requests at this time. The coaches are aware that a number of swimmers are involved in other fall sports and swimmers may not be able to attend all their regularly scheduled practices at this time. Swimmers should not attend any practices other than those for their assigned group.

REMINDER: The Parents Meeting will be held on Monday, September 19th at 7:00 PM at Liberty Middle School in the cafetorium. Team suits can be ordered from Greenhouse Aquatics during this time.

PRACTICE BEGINS on Tuesday, September 20th. Each swimmer's fees are based on your current group assignment. If a swimmer is assigned to another group, the additional team fees or reduction in team fees will be prorated. Please complete this registration process at the front desk of the YMCA prior to the start of practice.

Please click "READ MORE" for the practice schedule and groups.

Dear Penguin Parents,
Since the YMCA is closed on Sunday mornings and the front desk is not staffed, I am requesting parent volunteers to supervise the front door entrance and make sure swimmers go directly to the pool since the rest of the YMCA is off limits. Only swimmers who are scheduled to practice immediately should be dropped off at the YMCA for practice. PLEASE BE ON TIME!
1. Swimmers must walk directly to the pool when they arrive.
2. Swimmers cannot wonder around or use the snack machines.
3. The locker rooms can only be entered and exited through the pool area.
4. Since these practices are 1-1/2 hours, I prefer parents do not stay during practice, however, if it's necessary, you must enter the pool area with your swimmer and remain on the bleachers in the pool area.

Please advise your swimmer of the rules. If the swim team does not follow these rules, Sunday morning practices will be discontinued.

We already have Parent Volunteers for this Sunday, September 19th. There will be a sign up sheet on the bulletin board for future weeks.

This extra practice time is a bonus so let's make it work!
Thanks, Coach Chris

To all Kings and Emperors,

Please plan to be at practice 15 minutes prior to your scheduled practice time dressed and ready to get started. In swimming, as in all sports, stretching is an important part of flexibility, performance, and injury prevention. Therefore, the start of each practice will consist of a short dryland workout that will eventually be done independently before each swim practice. This is important and is mandatory. The first couple of practices, I will guide you through what is expected.If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email, call ,or ask me at our first scheduled practice. I am looking forward to another outstanding swim season!

Thanks, Coach Temple

From Coach Steve: There will be no organized practice tonight at the Y. The lanes will be open if some of you (who are not traveling tonight) want to get in and work on some starts and turns and/or to do a little swimming (nothing strenuous). See you tomorrow.

Due to the holiday, coach availability, and projected low attendance.....practice will be cancelled on Monday, July 5th. The pool will still be open and normal lanes available if you still wish to go to the Y to practice. Those scheduled but missing Monday's practice may come during their regular time on Tuesday as a make-up if they wish. Have a good holiday and see you on Tuesday.

Due to the holiday weekend and coaching availability there will o­nly be o­ne practice time o­n Friday. If you plan to attend, the practice will be ran by Coach Jim from 6-8 PM. I am also trying to get an approximate number of swimmers who will be attending practice o­n Monday, July 5th. We may shorten that session as well. Please email me at steven.temple@liebert.com to let me know if you plan to attend practice o­n Monday. I will check all responses and email a decision o­n Sunday morning about the plans for Monday practice.

Thank You,Coach Steve
