*Thank you to the Hill School for allowing us to use the Sweeney Gym for our Parent meetings. Also, a thank you to our parents who were able to attend the meeting(s). We appreciate your time, your questions, and your support of TOPS.
*For those unable to attend the meeting, we are putting together minutes, which we will share. They will be forthcoming.
*In your mailboxes will be a flyer for out big team fundraiser, which will take place in the spring. Please support this team fundraiser. We are giving everyone ample time to secure sponsors for this event. We thank you, in advance, for supporting this fundraiser.
Sunday, October 14th @ 2pm at the Hill school will be the team picture in the gym. Individual pictures in the pool area to follow. Use code TOPSSWIM18 at www.bishopphoto.com to order online before you arrive. I will have envelopes in family folders by end of practice Tuesday.
Have you handed in the Athlete Code of Conduct and the Parent Code of Conduct? If not, please do so ASAP. Please print your name vs. providing a signature, so that we can easily tell who handed in these important forms. Thank you.
Thank you to all the parents who shared pertinent health information via the registration process. This is very helpful. Please make sure that you alert us, via email, of any health issue for which we need to be aware.
Do you have TOPS clothing, in good condition that your swimmer has outgrown? If so, please bring the clothing to practice and give to a coach. We will put the clothing in a Blue IKEA bag for our swimmers in need of TOPS clothing. These Clothing Swap bags will be at Perk and Hill; not Pottstown.
*We have two shirts (one orange and one black) that are an adult S, that were donated to any who would like it. If interested, please email Coach Catherine at firstname.lastname@example.org.
*We emailed, everyone, the TOPS levels for all swimmers. We also emailed the revised facility schedule which reflect the TOPS levels vs. the age levels. Your swimmer will begin his/her TOPS level practice, tonight.
*Pottstown Athletic Center will be closing the pool, for a few weeks, for maintenance. With that reality, we will be adding 8’s and 10’s at The Hill School, Friday evening (7:30-8:30 p.m.).
