BSM Meet Entries due TOMORROW!

Dear Swim Families,

Yesterday at 11:18 a.m., I attempted to send 103 emails to swim parents, swimmers, (and school secretaries, principals, Ms. Grace, etc). about the temporary closure of the pool. Today, beginning at 11:43 (and continuing as I am typing this message) I started receiving all of these emails in my inbox as they bounced back undelivered. OH MY! Clearly there was a problem. So, my sincerest apologies that you were not communicated with about the cancelation of swim practice yesterday.

Not a happy surprise...

Update about the POOL:
Good news! The pool heater is working, the thermometer has been replaced and the water is warming up.

Practices this week:
Monday afternoon practice-cancelled
Tuesday morning practice- cancelled
Tuesday's after school ES practice-as usual
Wednesday after school-as usual
Thursday-morning and afternoon-as usual

** If anything changes, I will let you know...for real this time!

Thank you for your patience and understanding to those who were affected by the temporary closure and cancelation of practices.


Notes about the BSM Meet:
Depending on entries from all of the swim clubs...the BSM coach anticipates Session 1 will end around 12:00/noon. At that time, there will be a 1 hour break between sessions from approximately 12:00 p.m-1:00 p.m. He also confirmed that swimmers would be allowed to warm up during this break. Session 2 is estimated to start around 1:00 p.m. and the meet end time is estimated to be around 4:30-ish p.m. 

Looking forward to lots of strong and fast swimming in 2019!

Swim Hard. Dream BIG!

Dear Swim Families,

Please note that the TAISM pool will be closed Sunday, Monday and Tuesday morning, January 13-15th. The thermometer for the heater is broken and the pool is too cold for swimming. This means that there is NO PRACTICE on Sunday after school, Monday after school and Tuesday morning. Hopefully, we will be up and swimming as usual by Tuesday afternoon. I will keep you informed if there is a change. We are working to get the problem resolved as quickly as possible. Thanks for your patience and flexibility!

The following note was sent home with all Elementary swimmers who attended practices last week. Please be sure to sign and return the completed form by Tuesday of this week if your child is able to participate. This is a great opportunity for swimmers to participate in a competition style experience. The Time Trial will be run like a swim meet. See below for more information.

Dear Swim Family,

Your child is invited to swim at the TAISM TIME TRIALS on Tuesday, December 18th after school from 3:30-5:30 p.m. (estimated end time).

The time trials will be set up as an internal (TAISM only) swim meet and will provide a competition-like experience for our Elementary swimmers.  Events will include 50 meters each of Backstroke, Breaststroke and Freestyle. All participants will swim all events.

Students will be dismissed from school at their normal time. Warm ups will begin at 3:40 p.m. and the first event is scheduled to start at 4:00 p.m. We anticipate finishing around 5:30 p.m. and ask that parents are ready to pick up swimmers after the meet at TAISM by 5:30 p.m. at the pool deck or in the bus lane. Please arrange with your swimmer, ahead of time, where you will meet them after the event.

Of course, parents are invited to join us and cheer for the team! We hope you will consider attending. J We also need a few parent volunteer timers. If you are able and interested in helping, please check “YES!” on the slip below.

If your child is able to participate, please return the completed slip below, with a parent signature by Tuesday, December 11th.

Swim hard. Dream BIG!
J Thank you for your support!
