Happy Summer!

I hope you all are enjoying your first full week of no school!  I hope you have some fun in the sun (don't forget the sunscreen), and go for a swim! :)

As you all should be aware of by now, I won't be returning to West Hills next year as a classroom teacher.  I have chosen to spend more time with my family and become a sub and only working a couple days a week.  In addition, I won't be returning as the Head Coach for the swim team.  So, I am hoping that someone will step up to be a Head Coach, will you be the one?  I will be around to be a mentor for this year, but I will also be coaching at the high school level again.  So, I will be willing to show anyone the ropes.

Please email me ASAP if you are interested or you have any questions.  Doug Loiler can also answer any questions.

All Star Meet info and program

The All Star Meet is this Saturday at the Mt. Hood CC Aquatic Center again. 

Here are the details you need to know for our meet.  Plan to arrive on deck around 12:30 with your swimmer who is ready to swim, except for a shower, because warm-ups are from 1:00 to 1:20.  The meet will begin at 1:30.  It is ok to arrive later, if your swimmer is not in the beginning of the meet.  If this is the case, see the Meet Program (below) for the approximate time of their event.  Plan to arrive 90-60 minutes before they swim, and then they can use the shallow part of the pool for a proper warm-up.

The meet needs additional volunteers. As a school, we have satisfied our fair share, but the meet still needs 11 timers, 3 runners, and 8 bullpen workers. At this point, it is best to volunteer at the pool, but these positions are first-come.  The following people are already confirmed volunteers: Patrick Leslie (bullpen), Jon Dooley (bullpen), and Dan Bates (S/T). If you are volunteering for the meet, you should plan to arrive by 12:20, and maybe a little earlier if you want one of the extra spots Volunteers get in for FREE! All volunteers should go to the North Door to sign in and get a badge for free entry.

There will be an entry fee for this championship meet ($2 adult & $1 child [not swimmers]), unless you are volunteering. If you are volunteering, check-in at the volunteer desk to get an job badge, then you won't be charged. This year, heat sheets will be made available electronically, see below. No heat sheets will be sold at the meet.

Championship Meets / All Star Practice

WOW!  What great swims over the past two weekends by everyone!!  I am so happy to see each swimmer go out and try their best in the Championship meets.  I will post the results for both meets as soon as I have the final copies.

For the 10 swimmers that are swimming in the meet this weekend (All-Star Meet) we have our last two practices for the season on Tuesday and Wednesday from 5:00-6:00pm both days.  We will be working on their events exclusively, so come to one or both.  Coach Kevin will be at both practices to give some last minute pointers on their race(s).

Please remember to submit payment for the meet during practice this week.  I have only received two sets of entry fees.  It is $40 as a check to WHCS or cash will work too.
