Sunday Scoop #12

Happy Father's Day to all you swim dads! 

We kick off the dual meets this Tuesday night with our first home meet and then our first away meet on Thursday night. This email has a ton of information so bear with me tonight and please feel free to email any questions. 

We have been informed by the board of the Lancaster Summer Swim League that the first dual meet of Woodridge vs Skyline will be recorded as a forfeit by Woodridge due to the league rule being broken.

So, what does this mean? We will still hold the meet, and everything will function like it normally does for a dual meet. However, we will not announce a score or a winner at the end of the evening. Please do not tell your swimmers about this decision. Coach Barb will be speaking to the first two practices about this tomorrow. We have decided that the younger swimmers will not understand, and we want everyone to swim their best on Tuesday night. Times will still count for league qualifying and records can still be broken. If you have any questions about this, you can speak to Coach Barb or Linda Piper. 

Volunteer Needs for Tuesday Night: 

  • concession stand help - 1 from 7-8 and 3-4 from 8-9
  • stroke and turn - 1 for second half
