Hello, TOPS families!! How are you doing? We hope all is well. Each day that passes we are getting closer to our ‘swim’ tomorrows. Patience and discipline, two of our previous Words of the Year (Quotes) are vital in getting us through this challenging time.

Unfortunately, the majority of the news we are confronted with every day, is less than positive. BUT, there is A LOT of positive news out there, and below is an example of ‘good news.’

Like the USA Season, the HS swim season came to an abrupt halt. Just recently, our local papers have acknowledged area swimmers and coaches.

Chris Guiliano was named the All-Area Male Swimmer of the Year. Also, he has been highlighted in Swim Swam as being a noteworthy swimmer for the class of 2021 (Top 20 in the nation). Congratulations, Chris!

Also, Congratulations to Coach Bill for being named All-Area Boys’ Swim Coach of the Year! Way to go, Coach Bill!!

TOPS Website
FYI….Our home page looks a little funky. We contacted Active concerning it.

Spring Conditioning Clinic
Due to the recent extended mandate by Gov. Wolf, we will have to cancel the Spring Technique and Conditioning Clinic. Information will be forthcoming concerning refunds.

Swim Outlet
A sale is underway on Swim Outlet. A lot of our required equipment is on sale. Remember, shopping through our affiliate page is a fundraiser for TOPS. Given that we had to cancel our Clay Shoot and our Spring Clinic, every little bit helps. Thank you, in advance!

Middle Atlantic is not permitting any swimming/competition through May 31st. Therefore, the Keystone Aquatic LC Meet has been cancelled.

We don’t know the status of the other meets for which we are already entered. As stated above, we will wait for counsel. We will still move forward with entry into the PAAC Firecracker Meet. Deadline: April 29th.

Stay safe and thank you for all you do! Take care!!
