End of Season Notes: Last Practice (7/23), Summer Awards (7/27) and Team Banquet (7/28)
Although Monday is our last regular season meet, you still have one more chance to swim best times!
First Colony is hosting the annual Summer Awards Meet next Saturday, July 27th. This is a great opportunity to qualify for the Champs meet; we had several swimmers earn Champs cuts at the meet last year. If Champs isn't on your radar, the Summer Awards meet is an excellent way to cap off the season and race against similarly-capable swimmers from other divisions!
I've attached the official invitation for the meet below. As you'll see, it's divided into a 10 & Under AM session, starting at 8:30am, and an 11 & Up PM session, starting at 1:30pm. If you have any questions about the set-up of the meet after reading the invitation, please don't hesitate to ask!
Please email me the event(s) your kid(s) would like to swim before the deadline of Tuesday, July 23rd. Like regular season meets, your swimmer can swim a maximum of three individual events, but you can't swim an event that you've already gotten a Champs cut for. If your swimmer is unsure what they should swim, I'm more than happy to offer suggestions! Your entry fees will be covered by the team, as is tradition.
For those not participating in Summer Awards or Champs, your last day of practice will be that same Tuesday, July 23rd. Thanks for an awesome season!
To celebrate the swim season, we will have an end-of-year banquet down at the pool Sunday, July 28th at 6PM. Plan on bringing a dish. At the banquet, Coach Katy and I will be handing out paper plate awards to each swimmer. More info. to come!
