TOPS Weekly Announcements - 10/21/19
QUOTE OF THE WEEK: “Through perseverance many people win success out of what seemed destined to be certain failure. —Benjamin Disraeli
*There will be NO practice at PAC this Friday due to a Halloween function. This is a PAC decision.
*There will be NO practice at PAC this Saturday.
RSVP for NOT ATTENDING the Methacton dual meet is by Oct. 27th via the Parent Portal (VIEW MEETS)
SWIMMERS* will need:
*Royal Blue suit
*TOPS Cap (for our newer swimmers, they should be in your family folder- for those needing a new cap, the order should be in shortly).
*Spirit wear- Swimmers are not to wear spirit wear of other swim teams (HS, Summer, or previous team)
*We need officials for boys’ meet and girls’ meet. Please see the SAL Stroke and Turn Clinics, below. No previous officiating experience or swim experience is necessary.
*Please sign up for a Volunteer position via the Parent Portal – right hand banner. It is essential that we have parental support. Unfortunately, swimming is not a sport in which parents can sit and relax each and every meet, much like soccer, lacrosse, football, etc. Our swimmers rely on volunteers. We thank you, in advance, for supporting our swimmers.
*Please refer to the SAL tab for arrival time and location for your swimmer’s first dual meet in order to help you with planning.
*Parents of our younger swimmers – please prepare your swimmer, to be on deck with his/her teammates, without parental support. Aside from those volunteering on deck, parents will not be allowed on deck or in the swimmer locker room.
*All swimmers are expected to stay for the whole meet. Swimmers are not to leave after their events. We are a team, and as a team, we stay to support each other. The meet concludes with a team cheer.
*Parents, wear your team spirit wear. We have many options on our Swim Outlet team affiliate page. It can be accessed by clicking on the icon on our team website.
*Yesterday, we participated in our first SAL Invitational (Pennridge Time Trails). The results will be imported by tomorrow. These results will then be reflected in the Parent Portal under the PERSONAL BEST tab.
