Dear Parents and Swimmers,

We had a GREAT weekend at the Zeeland Pool!!!!

Our swimmers won the meet and two of our swimmers, Eliana Ker (8 and under) and Jack Ruud (9-10) were the overall age-group champions. We picked up a raft of state and zone qualifiers. Those of us who stayed in Holland had a wonderful time downtown. AND best of all, the hotel personnel complimented me on the behavior of our swimmers!!

Goal sheets will be distributed at practice this week. Please make sure you get one and fill it out with your current times and bring them to a practice (in a zip-lock bag with a pen) and the coaches will review them and help set intermediate and long-term goals.

The Indy meet has just been posted and this entry is a bit tricky. We have to enter now, but the meet is not until the end of January. There are qualifying times for this meet that many of our swimmers who are new to the team haven’t had a chance to meet. They probably will by the time we actually swim the meet. If your child is in that situation and you would like to attend the meet in this premiere facility it is okay with me if you enter them if you are willing to pay the fine if they don’t achieve the qualifying time at the meet (and have not achieved it at meets between then and now.) Please ask a coach for guidance.

​We are waiting to get practice time the Friday after Thanksgiving….We will let you know as soon as we do.

Good luck to our high school girls who will be competing in the Division 1, 2 and 3 High School State Meets this weekend!!! We know you will do us proud!!
