TOPS WEEKLY ANNOUNCMENTS- 1/7/19

QUOTE OF THE WEEK: “Every mistake you make is progress.” Anonymous

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Brady!!

WHAT’S ON DECK WITH TOPS?
*Congratulations on the dual meet victories! We are thankful for all the swimmers/divers, who participated in the meets, thankful for the emails sharing absences, and thankful for our parents who stepped forward to help at the dual meets; many of whom worked beyond their required hours.

*Both meets were run beautifully, and all that was due to parent volunteers. Thank you.

LAST DUAL MEET- JANUARY 12TH vs. COUNCIL ROCK
We will need volunteers, again, this week. It takes a village, and we all must be on the same page. We are in the home stretch….almost there.
With that said….

GIRLS’ DUAL MEET

DIVE MEET: Coach Kristine will notify divers of time and location.

SWIMMING
The girls will be hosting Council Rock at Pottstown Athletic Center. Due to limited deck space, we will have the older swimmers (14’s and Opens) in the locker room. The younger swimmers will be on deck (8’s, 10’s, 12’s). Swimmers, we must remember that we are guests at ALL facilities, and we are to be good stewards of those facilities.

Arrive: 11:45 a.m.
Warm-up: 12:00 p.m.
Start: 12:45 p.m.
*Lauren Keifer sent out the bake table sign up. Please support the bake table, for this is a fundraising effort for TOPS.

*We will be recognizing our graduating TOPS swimmers: Lilia Crew, Ella Greenholt, Grace McKee, Anna Pealock, Noelle Sprenkle, and Jennifer Zajac. For these swimmers, please email Coach Catherine, via topsswimming@gmail.com with the following information:

Swimmer name, years competing in competitive swimming, years swimming for TOPS, high school, plans for 2019-2020 (schools applied, will be attending, other plans), potential area of study, and words of wisdom you would like to impart to younger swimmers.

*We have asked Council Rock if we can recognize our graduating TOPS swimmers (Aaron Keifer, Michael McNeill, and Kyle Silbert) since we do not have an opportunity to host. Assuming Council Rock says that will be OK, please email Coach Catherine, via topsswimming@gmail.com with the following information:

Swimmer name, years competing in competitive swimmers, years swimming for TOPS, high school, plans for 2019-2020 (schools applied, will be attending, other plans), potential area of study, and words of wisdom you would like to impart to younger swimmers.

*AS WITH ALL OUR DUAL MEETS, PLEASE EMAIL via topsswimming@gmail.com a swimmer absence by Tuesday evening (1/8/19). Please adhere to this timely request. *

*Coaches, wearing multiple hats, begin the line up early in order to get the information to Coach Bill, so that he can get everything ready, for BOTH meets.

*It is a bit challenging for the coaches who have everything set, then get an email, on Thursday, stating that the swimmer will not attend.

Thank you, all, in advance.
