Storm Forecast for May 15th, 2024

Saturday’s Total Team Practice

One of the highlights of our season is the Total Team Practice.  It allows our younger swimmers to find role models in the older swimmers, it forces our older swimmers to figure out how to break down and teach strokes, and it shows how something as small as an “attaboy” on the pool deck from a teenager to an 8-year-old will change that child’s trajectory. 


All that to say: we need everyone available for Saturday.  We need our oldest swimmers, we need our 11-14 swimmers, we need our 10&U swimmers.  The more we have, the bigger the impact.  I understand we’ve got some folks heading to prom, but with an approximate 10:15A finish, we ought to be able to fit into the schedule of most.

Burn Boot Camp

We’ve got right around a dozen participants signed up for our free day at Burn Boot Camp.  We’d still love to see a few more 12&U swimmers (and their parents too!)—sign up here.  Find info here.

Summer Session

Registration has opened for returning families for the summer session.  We’re setting an early goal of 110 swimmers for the summer.  It’s aggressive, but we think we’ve created a wonderful product that will appeal to all of our swimmers this summer: several brand new Thunderstorm joining, more dedicated time for our 11-14s, post-grad & Masters programing, we’ve got it all.  If you have questions about what you think is right for your swimmer, don’t hesitate to ask the lead coach for your swimmer’s group.

Practice Changes

Note: With Piranhas gearing up and utilizing time at East, our schedule will get really wonky in the coming days.  Be sure to check your group’s calendar.  If you haven’t yet discovered that you can upload your group’s calendar into your own phone, go here and click your swimmer’s group to find the appropriate links.
