Our Fantastic Swimmers
Stacie Smith put together another great end of slide show this year and took some really wonderful pictures of our swimmers. Prints from the slideshow (and a few extras that didn't make the cut) are available for anyone to look through and take home. They are in a box near the team folders - also check your folders, just in case someone dropped them in there too.The slideshow can also be seen (not heard due to copyrighted music) here. If you would like more copies of prints you can reach Stacie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Championship meet will be held at CCV pool on Saturday, July 9th. The meet begins at 8 am, but warm ups will be much earlier. If you are a volunteer at the meet, please plan on covering your shift, even if your child will not be attending.
Here is more information, including the warm up schedule.
Here is a pool map.
Here is a general timeline for the meet, but remember the actual meet could be running faster or slower than this so don't rely on it as anything more than a guideline - as an example, the 13-18 prelim this year was running ahead of schedule by over an hour.
Here are the results of all prelim races swum by Sundance kids. If your child, either in a relay or in an individual event came in place 1-18, they will be expected at Championships. Place 17 and 18 are alternates, but the rest will swim. We often need alternates, and some have already moved up, so this spot is very important!! If your child is in one of these places on this list and you need to scratch, please let us know before Tuesday, July 5th at 4 pm.
Here are the results from the Finals meet - Way to go Sailfish!!!

"Swimming: The only sport where a coach yells at you for breathing"

Hello Mudskipper Families!
We are SO excited to have you all swimming with us this year! We plan to have a TON of fun! We have 15 helper coaches in addition to our amazing staff that are very excited about working with this group of swimmers.
Our first practice is Tuesday May 31, and we would please ask ALL Mudskippers to come from 10:15-10:45 for the whole first week. This first week at practice, you can expect a lot of fun getting to know each other games in and out of the water. We will be evaluating each kiddo one on one with a coach. This process will likely take all 4 practices. From those evaluations, we will place each kiddo in a group perfect for them to learn to love swimming this summer. Please stay tuned next weekend for practice times for the remainder of the season via email. Thank you for allowing us to work with your kids, and we welcome all your feedback!
See you Tuesday!
Tara Zimmerman and Coaches
Big and Little Buddies!!!
This year instead of assigning specific big/little buddies, we are trying something different. We want to foster more team morale and spirit! On Fridays after practices, we will be making posters for the next day's swim meet. Each meet will have a theme and goodies to be handed out at the meet to help cheer on ALL of our big and little kids. Starting the week of morning practice we will announce the theme for that week's swim meet. At the meet, look for the Sundance tent, AKA the "SPIRIT HEADQUARTERS" to get your spirit items!
Thanks for helping us encourage ALL swimmers at the meets. Go Sailfish!
