Results for Polliwog and Division

Here are the results for the Polliwog and Division championships.  I apologize for the delay in getting the Polliwog results up!

Note for the Division results:  First, all places on this sheet ARE final, so swimmers will be awarded ribbons from this sheet.  The points ARE NOT final.  This is part one of two meets.  The rest of the teams swim today, and the two day meet is combined into one large meet.  I will publish those results  with the new point totals when I get them (early this coming week).

Division entries

I was finally able to access this information.  Sorry about the delay!

Since CYO has not yet published the heat and lane information for the meet, I have published a list of what your swimmer will be swimming.  Please note that the relays are not 100% confirmed until the day of the meet, due to absences.  Please confirm with a coach before your swimmer leaves tomorrow.

Division Meet update...

Hi all,

I just realized that I have not sent any info out about tomorrow!  I am very sorry.  Here is all of the info you will need.  If you feel I have missed anything, please ask!!!

We are swimming at the Mt. Hood CC pool, same place as the last meet.  Warm-ups begin at 1:00 sharp with assigned lanes, and the meet will start at about 1:45.  Please have all swimmers in their suits, ready to swim, and with the coaches by 12:40.  With over 300 swimmers at this meet, it is important to give extra time for parking, changing, finding our team area, and getting situated.  The meet should be over around 5:30.

Since we will be swimming in the outdoor pool, please have a plan for your child to go to the bathroom, since they are located at the indoor pool building.

Since this is a Championship Meet, there is an entrance fee of $2 adults / $1 children.  Swimmers, coaches, and volunteers get in for free (follow the signs).  

Also, I do not have access to the meet program for this meet.  If you want a meet program, they will be sold at the event.  I'm not sure how much they will charge, but I believe it will be $1-2.  Please come prepared.

Practice clarification...

When I said that practices run all week this week, I was, of course, describing Tuesday - Thursday. :)

Unfortunately, VC pool is not available on No School days to us, so today is not an option.  But, I encourage your swimmer to swim somewhere else today...maybe the bathtub?!?

WOW! Polliwogs, practices, and

WOW!  The Polliwogs swam great today!  So many PR's!!  I am a very happy coach to see such amazing efforts by everyone.  They each knew it was a championship meet, and they all performed amazingly, with many their fastest times...EVER!

Next weekend, it is the cubs and cadets turn to show their best swims!  I can't wait to see what the meet holds. There will be more information about the meet coming this week.

All-Star meet entries are offically due on Monday (tomorrow) at 9pm.  Currently I have entries from, Dutt, Gowens, McFarland, Farmer x2, Craft, Jaramillo, Parker, Powers, Reynolds x2, and Killian x2.  Please provide checks to WHCS for $35 for each swimmer.  They must be handed to Coach Kevin before the All-Star Meet; at school via your swimmer is fine.

All-Star meet entry form

We still need volunteers...badly!  We need 5 more people for the Division meet, and thank you to the Gowens, Killian, Farmer, Dutt x2, Mittelstaedt, and Vreugdenhil families.  And, we also need 5 more people for the All-Star meet, and thank you to the Gowens, Farmer, and Dutt x2 familes.

Championship meet volunteering form

Finally, our practice schedule this week is slightly adjusted.  ALL practices at VC will be from 4-5! (Including Tuesday)  VC has an adjusted school schedule which allows us to have the pool by ourselves from 4-5 all week.  We will still have our last Dryland Practice from 3:15 - 4:30 on Friday.

Division Meet entries and volunteers...

First, we are still in need of quite a few volunteers for the Division and All-Star meets!  Please, volunteer...HERE!  Thank you to the Farmer, Gowens, and Killian families for volunteering.

As a reminder, the last meets are coming up quickly.  The Polliwog meet is this weekend (1/18), and 10 of 12 swimmers are attending.  It is going to be a great meet, with more information coming in the next couple days.

For the Division Meet, I have only heard from 8 families (Dutt, Gitt, Golden, Gowens, Killian, McFarland, Mittelstaedt, and Woody).  This is the last meet for some, and it is a fun and fast meet.  Plan to come to this great meet!

Division Meet entry form.  Please enter by 9PM Tuesday night.

The final meet of the season is the All-Star meet.  It is even "faster" and "funner" and it is for QUALIFIED cubs and cadets.  Please note, this is a fee-based meet.  All swimmers will need to pay $35 (via check to WHCS) whether they swim in one, two, or three individual events.  There are no relays, and swimmers only swim against swimmers in their grade. 

All-Star Meet entry form.  Please try to enter by 9PM Tuesday night, but if you have questions, I have a few extra days before entries are due for this meet.

Polliwog Championship Meet

Attached you will find the Polliwog Championship Meet entry form.  This form is ONLY for polliwogs.  If you have cub or cadet swimmers, you do not need to respond for them.  All Polliwogs are able and invited to swim in this championship meet that will have all the Polliwogs from all of the CYO teams at the same pool at the same time.

To assist with that number of swimmers, WHCS is responsible to have 3 volunteers.  If we don't provide at least 3 volunteers, coaches will be pulled to assist.  The greatest need is for timers, bullpen, and runners.  Please email me if you would like to volunteer and the position you desire.  The sooner the better, because once that position fills, you will be placed in another position at the meet directors discretion.

Meet results and practice TONIGHT!

First of all, thank you all for volunteering for VERY well run meet.  I had several of the other coaches come up to me afterward and tell me how well run it was.

THANK YOU ALL!  There are so many families, I can't identify each of you, but I really tried to thank each one of individually for your time

Here are the meet results, and they will be posted to the blog.

Also, please do not forget about the practice tonight at the Beaverton Swim Center.  It goes from 6-7.  The last two weeks (before Christmas Break) we had about 10 swimmer!  We have the entire pool and several coaches, so it is a great time to get extra instruction and a great workout.  Only two more weeks of Sunday practices (this week and next week).
