Swimmers and Parents,
We are a little over a week away from the first official day of the boys swim season. The first official practice is slated for 11/20 at 4:00 in the Jones Natatorium. The first three practices of the week will serve as a "tryout" for all swimmers. We hope to not cut any swimmers, but depending on numbers, spacing, and ability that is a possibility and I just want to be as transparent as possible. With that said, my goal is to include all interested swimmers, from all ability levels. Further, V, JV, and FS will be announced 12/1.
As for other information to get out there, please make sure all documentation has been turned in to either the Payton or Jones athletic departments. Payton swimmers need to get their green sheet from the Payton AD before they are cleared, and Jones swimmers need to turn in all info to the Jones AD to be added to the "okay" list. No swimmer will be allowed to get in the water on the 20th without a submitted physical and concussion form.
Regarding the calendar, please check out not only the meet schedule, but the practice calendar on jonespaytonswimming.com for information. The calendar is going to change from time to time due to building availability and I will do my best to give a week of notice whenever there is a change. To that end, there are a few changes for this week. Due to parent teacher conferences I want to amend a few things.
Optional practices for the coming week:
Sunday 11/12 8:30-10 Jones Natatorium
Monday 11/13 5:50-7:00 6th Floor Weight Room
Wednesday 11/15 5:50-7:00 6th Floor Weight Room
Due to the parent teacher conferences on 11/16 I would like to reschedule the parent meeting from 11/15 at 6:00, to 11/21 at 6:00 in the Jones Natatorium. Hopefully these changes work with everyone and provide the best opportunity possible.
Lastly, please check jonespaytonswimming.com for apparel and updates. All swimmers need a team suit prior to our first meet. Also there are other items that are definitely worth taking a look at. I will place a tshirt order for all swimmers the first week of practice.
Thank you again for all of your support and I cannot wait for the start of a great season!
