I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday break (or soon to be break)! I know I am thankful for so many blessings in my life and I thank God everyday for those gifts.
I wanted to let everyone know of a system-wide change that will be occurring starting next week for ALL swimmers. Starting next week (12/6), Friday practices are strongly encouraged for ALL swimmers for the rest of the season. Practice will occur in the auditorium (or music room) at West Hills from 3:15-4:15. Swimmers will go to the gym at the end of school, and I will walk them outside the gym doors around 4:15 to be picked up from the curb. Parents can stay in cars and line up in the parking lot, similar to Kindergarten pick up.
The reason for this change is that I have realized that I am missing an opportunity to address the whole swim team on technique, best time awards, meet results, and meet entries. In addition to getting through the previously mentioned items, we will also be working on core strength with some moderate exercising (no special clothing required).
Due to this change, I would encourage all athletes that were swimming on Fridays to contact me and pick any of the other practice times that would work into family schedules. Click here to see the current list of practice times and attendees.
Here is a list of the remaining Fridays and any special notes:
12/06 - in Auditorium 3:15-4:15
