The short course season is almost upon us! Practice begins the week of September 8. The practice calendar has been posted on the website at www.nsswim.com. Be sure to consult it weekly to keep up to date! Even better, print it out and post in a prominent space in your household!
We are changing the way registration fees are calculated to be more in line with USA Swimming. Fees are charged for each season, short course season and long course season. Fees are due in full at the time of registration. Installment plans are available and MUST be done online by the 15th of each month. The short course season runs until February 12, 2016, with those achieving BB times competing at regionals and those achieving state cuts competing at STATE in the two weeks after.
We will also be having two awards banquets per year, honoring swimmers for each season. Look for those to happen in March and August.
As noted in a previous email, coaching changes are also coming. Coach Sarah will be taking over Group 1. Coaches Andrew and Matt will be co-coaching Group 2, our largest group. Coach Joe will be coaching Groups 3, 4 and Seniors and will begin their practices in the auxilliary pool due to high school practice. Parents make speak to the coaches before or after practice. No parents or siblings are allowed on the deck during practice. The north bleachers are available for your convenience. Please be sure to pick up your swimmer no later than 7:15pm, as adult swim begins at 7pm and we MUST vacate the pool area.
Meet schedule is posted on the website. Opt outs will be linked after September 8.
