Great job in Saturday.

Coming up this week-
We have 130 people coming to the end of the year swim party.

Many have not sent an  RSVP. We are buying water, paper plates, plastic ware based on 150 people attending.

We need 2-3 more timers for Divisionals. The other teams have supplied  almost all the workers. We do have a volunteer for Stroke and Turn, Sweeps judge and 2 timers.David Cole was selected by the division reps to be starter.

Thanks to all the swimmers this summer and the parents who drove them and volunteered at meets.

Saturday July 15

We are swimming against BBT but due to issues at their pool, we will be at BST
12728 Midwood Lane , Bowie

Be at the pool by 7:30. 

This is our last regular season meet. July 22 is our divisional meet. I can only enter the top 2 swimmers in each event from the season and 1 relay for each relay event. 

I will try and notify swimmers who will be swimming at  Divisionals by Friday, but I may need to wait for the times from the upcoming meet. 

Wednesday, July 19, is our end of the year picnic. Set up will be at 4:45pm. Swimmers arrive at 5pm. Dinner at 5:30, followed by awards. Clean up begins at 7:15pm

No one has volunteered to organize the picnic so this is what will happen-

Last name beginning with A - M - please bring a main dish that would feed many people
M - S  please bring a side dish
T- Z  dessert

Paper products, ice and drinks will be provided
Please send RSVP on Remind.

Meet #2  

We lost but the score does not reflect the quality of our swimmers. We have 140 swimmers registered for the team. 77 swimmers were in today's meet. We had too many events with 1 or 2 entered for the event or some events with no one.  

Next week is a home meet. We need swimmers to attend!  Tuesday evening at 6 there will be a parent meeting to discuss what is needed for a home meet.

June 16, 2017

The swimmers have been working very hard this week and , I hope, excited about tomorrow. We want tomorrow to fun for everyone. We have 90 Kings Landing Lionfish  ready to swim.  

Please encourage your swimmers. The coaching staff wants the kids to enjoy themselves but stll focus on their swimming.

Thanks to the parents who have volunteered for tomorrow. 

The weather is rather iffy for tomorrow. I need everyone to show up ready to swim. If it rains too hard , we will have to wait. If there is thunder and/or lighting, we will wait in our cars . If it lasts too long, the meet will be rescheduled with a good chance of the meet finishing either Monday or Thursday evening.  Bring rain gear, sweatshirts for your swimmers, and pop up tents if you have one.

See you tomorrow morning at 7:30 AM at Smallwood Village Pool in Waldorf.
