Last chance to register for the Dynamo Spring Splash- deadline Thursday, April 28th. After that meet there are only 3 more long course meets. It is a short season- sign up now for the next meets.

SCAT Long Course Kick off meet info
****NEW WARM UP AND START TIMES****:


Entries by Name  |  Entries by Event  | Heats on the Calendar
13 & Over
SATURDAY Warm Up 9am Start @ 10am (Coach Adria)
SUNDAY Warm Up 8am, Start 9am (Coach Jenny)
12 & Under
SATURDAY Warm Up 2:55pm, Start 3:30pm (Coach John and Coach Adria)
SUNDAY Warm Up 2:05pm, Start 2:45pm (Coach Jenny and Coach John)

Looking at the psych sheet- this is a very big meet. Please plan on sending your swimmer with plenty of healthy snacks and drinks, extra warm clothing and entertainment. Some 13 & over events could have 40 heats!

WARM UP is critical at this meet!!!! Please arrive in plenty of time. This is the first long course meet of the season and swimmers will need to adjust to the longer pool and re-learn the long course stroke counts for backstroke. For the 12 & under sessions warm up is only 30 minutes long- if you miss warm up your swimmer will not get to swim in the 50 meter pool before they race. Please plan accordingly.

Check here SCAT website later this week for discounted parking link.

Save the Date:
May 21st - ASA Team Awards Event: More details to follow.
*We are actually looking for a location besides ASA that could hold approx. 100 people that would be inexpensive to hold the event. If you have access to a location, please let me know! I would greatly appreciate it.

Happy Spring!  I hope your first week of spring is going well.
