Storm Forecast for June 6th, 2024

Michael White

Another Registration Record

117 swimmers!  And we’re not done!  With our winter, spring, and summer numbers all at records, we’re making great progress in building the program.  Contrasting that growth against a 4% drop in swimmers nationwide, and stale growth in Wisconsin—we’re in very good shape with an expected “Olympic Bump” happening this fall.  If you drive 15 minutes in just about any direction, you’ll find another team.  There are options everywhere.    Thanks for choosing Storm and helping us grow something special here.

Olympic Trials Watch Party

Thanks to the big rush on tickets earlier this week, we’ve upgraded to the BIG theater for Olympic Trials on the 19th.  So out of 100 tickets available, 23 remain.  As many of you on summer teams are making new friends, invite them to join!  Tickets are available here.  Attendees should arrive around 6:40-6:50, with racing happening from 7-9pm.  Tickets are $10.

Practice Changes

A quick reminder that we start our full-force summer schedule Monday.

 

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.
