Great job swimmers at the Practice Meet today! The veteran swimmers swam 40 PBs and new swimmers in the practice meet will have the opportunity to PB in their next week!

Practice meet results will be posted on the bulletin board on Monday night after Coach Chris arrives.

Several swimmers were DQ'd (disqualified)and a time is not listed on the results. Many of the DQs were on backstroke. On backstroke, swimmers must remain on their back until they touch the wall. Many rolled over before touching the wall.

On butterfly and breastroke, there were some one hand touches. Swimmers must touch with both hands at the same time. There were also some flutter kicks on butterfly and on the breastroke starts.

NOTE: Several swimmers touched the bottom of the pool at some point in their race. DQs were not indicated on the results, but this is illegal, and in the future, the swimmer will likely be DQ'd. Swimmers will be reminded of this rule.

ENTRIES UPDATED ON 9/27 at 11:35 pm - relays have been added! Click "READ FULL ARTICLE."

ENTRIES UPDATED ON 9/25 at 10:40 PM (Click READ FULL ARTICLE)
SWIMMERS WILL BE CAMPING OUT IN THE NURSERY/NEXT TO THE MEETING ROOM. PLEASE REFER TO THE HANDBOOK ON WHAT TO BRING.

PRACTICE MEET - Sunday, September 30th

PARENTS: We will need timers! NEW PARENTS: This will be a great opportunity for those of you that haven't timed before!

This Sunday, September 30th is the Practice Meet for all new swimmers and 10 & Under veteran swimmers. Please plan to arrive at the YMCA no later than 3:45 pm. Swimmers will have a short warmup and then we'll start the meet.

If you click "READ FULL ARTICLE" the final entries including relays are now posted.

WRITE your swimmers event numbers on their hand the day of the meet (see handbook for more info) with a permanent sharpie marker. (It's a good idea to keep the marker in your bag) Most swimmers show NT next to their event because they currently do not have a time for the event yet - NT=NO TIME. They will establish a time at the practice meet and the next time they swim the event, they have a time to beat for a PB!! All swimmers are currently in a relay!

We want swimmers and parents to feel comfortable at their first "real" meet so the practice meet is held to give everyone an idea how things will run. The event list for the practice meet is much smaller and events are mixed (boys and girls) and open events (any ages) so we can run the meet fairly quickly. A "25" is one length of the pool, a "50" is two lengths of the pool and so on. Based on practices, swimmers should not have any difficulty with the events they have been entered in; however, if a swimmer is uncomfortable with an event or you have any questions, please let me know.

Thanks, Coach Chris

SICK SWIMMER ON THE DAY OF THE MEET: Call Coach Chris at 614-406-3628 as early as possible.
