QUOTE OF THE WEEK: “If you quit on the process, you are quitting on the result.” Idowu Koyenikan
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Abigail, Sophia, and Coach Natalie!!
THERE IS NO PRACTICE AT HILL SCHOOL, THIS EVENING, DUE TO ELECTRICAL WORK. TOPS Hill swimmers have the night off. They are not to go to Perk for practice.
*At each training facility, we have family mailboxes. Please check the mailboxes, about once a week. For the new swimmers not in attendance for the team picture, your orange shirt and team cap should be in your family folder.
*Also, in your folder should be the flyer for our large team fundraiser. Thank you, in advance for your efforts to support this.
*Going forward: Any awards earned at invitationals/USA meets, will be put in the family folder.
*We have contacted Hatboro-Horsham, and are awaiting their response concerning our potential participation. Here is some preliminary information. When we get the ‘go ahead’ we will email, everyone, and you can then begin to enter the meet through the new website.
*Sunday, November 4th, Simmons Elementary School, 411 S. Babylon Rd., Horsham, Pa. 19044
*The Information sheet, for this invite, is attached.
*There is a flat $20.00 per swimmer fee.
*In order to qualify for a potential award, a swimmer must swim the five events in his/her age group.
*From the coaches: Swimming five events, in one session is not ideal, and not what we traditionally recommend. It is a lot of swimming in a short period of time. Swimmers may choose to swim fewer events, but the flat fee applies.
*This is a fundraiser for Hatboro-Horsham, and we are happy to support a fellow SAL team. Though there will be officials in attendance, we are not sure about the rigor of the officiating. We believe it is crucial to provide our swimmers with an honest assessment of their present capabilities. Please know, that if we see that your swimmer is not legal, even though there was not an official DQ, we will make note of it, and we will not put your swimmer in a meet, in that event, until we have remedied technical issue.
*We will be expected to provide timers, and possibly, officials, for this invitational. Please be prepared to help.
