We have two remaining dual championship dual meets. Jan. 4th and Jan. 11th. An email was sent with pertinent information. Let’s finish our 2019-2020 dual meet season strong. We are super impressed with our swimmer dual meet attendance, and we thank you, parents and swimmers, for your support.

The following has been clarified for the girls’ meet:
Girls vs. RAC- Jan. 4th
Arrival: 12:45 p.m.
Warm-up: 1:00 p.m.
Start: 1:45 p.m.

Families, you will be receiving the link to RSVP for the Jan. 4th dual meet (one for the boys and one for the girls). Please only identify if your swimmer is unable to attend by* 29th.*

Parents, as usual we will need help at the remaining dual meets. If you are shy of required hours, you may be assigned. We thank those who step forward, week after week, to volunteer.

For those who will be attending the Council Rock Hawaiian Invite (Sunday, Dec. 28th), you will receive a detailed email, this week. We are awaiting any last minute notes from the Meet Director.

The SAL TOP 50 has been updated. This list will be updated a few more times. Swimmers have the upcoming dual meets, and invites, to earn a SAL TOP 50 time.

The Souderton invite is for our TOPS swimmers who do not have a SAL TOP 50 time.
TOPS swimmers who have one SAL TOP 50 time, can swim other events at the Upper Merion SAL Invite in order to make the invite worthwhile of your time. There is no need to do two invites (e.g. Souderton and Upper Merion).

EVENTS CHOICE AT INVITES: As usual, swimmers are to choose no more than THREE (3) events in order to yield the best results.

We were just notified, by the president of SAL, that ‘A’ Champs will not be held at LaSalle University, for there was a conflict. SAL has secured the University of Pennsylvania pool for ‘A’ Champs.

Thank you to the parents who attended the SAL Parent Meeting, last Saturday. We know you are busy, and we appreciate you taking the time to attend. You are TOPS!
