Dear Penguins and Parents:
Great job everyone at Time Trials! This week is the last week of night practices — and we have our first dual meet at home against Montevideo on Saturday. Now the fun really begins!
TIME TRIAL MAKE-UPS AT 7:15 TONIGHT
Please note that since the pool is open to members, we have moved Time Trial Make-Ups tonight (Monday 6/5) to 7:15 pm. Please arrive on time and ready to swim, as we have a lot of races to get through before it gets dark. Parents, please stay to help out with timing and recording. Any swimmers who missed any of their races on Saturday should come to Make-Up Time Trials. Everyone else gets the night off from practice!
PRACTICES THIS WEEK
This is the last week of condensed night practices; morning practices will start next week. Please note that some age groups may be doing dryland exercises in addition to swimming during practices this week. Please wear shorts and running shoes over your suit so you’re prepared for either one!
WILL YOU BE AT THE MEET ON SATURDAY?
Remember, if you will be missing a meet, you need to let the coaches and volunteer coordinators know at least one week in advance. So far the only families we know will be missing all or part of this Saturday’s meet (6/10) are: Buchanan, Hocevar Tabuchi, Blacow, Minasian, Espinoza, Morales, and Mamola. Please let us know TODAY if your swimmer will not be there on Saturday!
SATURDAY’S MEET: MONTEVIDEO @ LPAC
We do love swimming in the friendly confines of our home pool, but the downside of having only four racing lanes is that we have to get up pretty early. LPAC swimmers will need to check in with the coaches by 6:30 am on Saturday morning. Please plan to get a good night’s sleep on Friday so you’re ready to swim fast on Saturday!
Parents, if you haven’t already done so, be sure to sign up for your volunteer shift(s) on SignUp Genius. We’ll have more details about the meet in our end-of-the-week reminders.
SAVE THE DATE: CANCER RELAY FUNDRAISER ON JUNE 23
This year the swimmer reps are helping to organize a fun relay event on Friday, June 23 (during regular practice times) to raise funds for the American Cancer Society. Sadly, our team has had many families affected by cancer; please plan to participate and help us channel our penguin power into making a difference! More details to follow.
