We can’t believe that we are nearing the end of our summer swim season! It has been great to get to know new gator families and to reconnect with our legacy gator families. Swim Team families are the best!
Practice:  Welcome to Gator Week! This is traditionally the hardest week of workouts for swimmers (the coaches LOVE this week!) and the last week of swimming for those swimmers that don’t qualify for League or State.
Intrasquad Wednesday 7/11: This is our last intrasquad and swimmers can qualify for League/State at this meet. Event sign ups will be posted from Monday – Wednesday morning.
GMST v. MV Saturday 7/14: This is our last home meet and swimmers can still qualify for League/State. Show up and swim fast! Event sign ups will be posted from Wednesday night – Friday morning. 

Last Chance Meet Sunday 7/15: For those swimmers who need one “last chance” to qualify for League or State, please sign up for this meet. It is hosted at 5Parks and the sign up link is on the right side of the blog.  You must sign up online no later than 11am on Saturday (after the Mount Vernon home meet) and pick your races in order to swim at this meet. 
League Swim Meet: If your swimmer qualifies for League, then they will be practicing at the regularly scheduled practice times the week of 7/16.  If your swimmer did not qualify, then they are free for the rest of the summer to sleep in 🙂  All League info will be on the right side of the blog and all event entries are due by Monday 7/16. Please speak with the coaches about which events you will be swimming. 
State Swim Meet: If your swimmer qualifies for State, then they will be practicing the week of 7/23. Please check the blog as swim practice times might be shifted this week due to the lower number of swimmers.  
Team Movie Night: This fun event is for swim team only (but of course we will let sibling sneak in) and it is hosted at 8pm after the pool closes.  We will provide popcorn and water. Your swimmer can bring a blanket/pillow, snacks and be in their pajamas if they want. We will not be getting in the water. This is a dry land event and just a fun way to wind down the summer swim season with their swim friends. You are welcome to drop your swimmers off and pick them back up at 10pm.
Team Banquet: This is our BIG end of the year banquet. We get the pool grounds all to ourselves and will honor all the hard work our swimmers and coaches put in this year. This is a potluck event and the coaches even get all dressed up for us.  We hope you can make it!!
