TOPS WEEKLY ANNOUNCEMENTS - 8/27/19
Best of luck to all our swimmers who are starting their new school year! It is a fresh start and we are excited to see all you accomplish!!_
At TOPS, though our main focus is on swimming, we do support/acknowledge our swimmers accomplishments and strengths, off the pool deck. We will post, periodically, OFF THE DECK posting of non-swim accomplishments. Please share with us those OFF the DECK accomplishments via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Congratulations to Ben Young for being inducted into the St. Thomas Aquinas Chapter of National Honor Society!!
*Cheryl Loshnowsky has a pair of fins (Male- 5-7 or Women- 7-9- Blue/Green in color). If you need these fins, please email email@example.com.
REMINDER: ALL equipment needs to be acquired by the first day of practice.
– First day of practice – Sept. 16th
– First day of practice – Sept. 23rd
Registration is still open, though some age groups are nearing capacity; particularly at the Pottstown Athletic Center.
Please* LIKE* then* SHARE* our Swimming4TOPS Facebook page with your Facebook friends. This page is generic in nature. We will post information about our team for any who are interested in learning more about our team. This is different than our Closed Facebook page.
– This page is another avenue for you to stay informed as to all what is in play with TOPS. It is a closed group, therefore, you must seek permission to join.
For any who will not be returning to TOPS, we will be streamlining our Facebook members to those who are currently with the team. We will retain our alum on our member list. We will remove any who are no longer with TOPS, so as not to bother them with posts which are not pertinent to their reality.
On September 15th we will conduct mandatory parent meetings. At these meetings, parents will meet the board, meet the coaches, review the year, and its expectations, and provide information so that we can have a smooth start to the year. It is vital that we are all on the same page.

Almost all our chosen USA meets are uploaded and ready for entry. If you meet the TOPS USA criteria, and desire to swim USA, this year, but have not yet committed, please do as ASAP so that you can join us in our USA Day on Sept. 7th (10 a.m. – 2 p.m.).
Also, this decision is time sensitive, so that you will not miss entry into the meets. USA meets tend to close, early, therefore, we need to enter them ASAP.
If you have not chosen your events, you will miss out on participating in our chosen meets. We have provided ample time to sign-up. Unfortunately, we cannot send late entries, to the meet directors, if you missed the sign up period.
17 AND OLDER- This is a reminder that you must complete the online Athlete Protection Course (free) in order to be allowed to swim in a USA meet. This is a USA mandate. Please do this before we begin our swim season. Your completion of this course will be reflected on your DECK PASS.
HAVE A FANTASTIC WEEK, EVERYONE!!
