NSWC Dev and A/B Meet Sign Up

The sign up for the June 19th NSWC Development Meet closes June 14th. Thank you to all who signed up so far! The NSWC Dev meet package is linked in this email and has lots of useful information!

Here are a few tips for the meet: Dress for the rain and for the cold being it is an outdoor pool, bring multiple swim suits and towels to stay warm and dry, bring small snacks instead of big meals (easier for kids to consume between races).

Schedule Updates

Group 2 Tuesday morning practice was incorrectly unlisted on the calendar. Group 2 will continue to have practices Tuesday mornings 6:45-8:00 at Ron Andrews.

Group 3 and 4 Saturday June 15th morning practice now starts at 6:15am instead of 5:45am.


Duet Guide

I have created a guide if your athlete is trying to work on a duet! The document includes the music times, required elements, and tips on how to create a duet. I hope this can help answer some questions athletes are having. Please note that our duet times are any of the following:
