Hello State Champion Barracudas! I hope your August off has been wonderful. In a couple weeks we get to be together again for another fun season of swimming! Please be sure to get registered before we open it up for new assessments (August 28 and 29). Attached is the roster of people who have already registered for this fall. If your name is not on it you have not registered yet. (I need to register my kids too!) Please look on the blog at the post called Fall Swim Team Registration which was posted on August 1st. It contains specific easy instructions on how to get registered.
Each year we’ve been excited to make a few changes to continue to make our program excellent. When I first began coaching we only had about 20 kids so it wasn’t too hard to figure out times and pool space. As we have grown over the years, and as our swimmers have gone from beginners, to good, to GREAT, we’ve had to make a lot of changes. This year one exciting change is giving purple group some extra time in the pool along with some extra coaching. The other exciting change is, as our kids have gotten older and more advanced, we have added a two-a-day afternoon option for yellow group.
I look forward to seeing all of you in September!
See you at the pool!
Hello State Champion Barracudas! I hope you are enjoying your break! I sure am. =) It’s August – which means two things: one, it’s break time! and two, it’s time to register for the fall season!
Attached is the 2018-2019 swim team registration packet. A lot of you are longtime swimmers and wonder why we have you re-fill out this paperwork year after year. We just have to have updated paperwork each season, so thanks for bearing with us!
Each swimmer must fill out pages 3, 4 and 5 of this packet and must pay the $35 league fee to secure your spot in your group. You may either drop off paperwork at the Benbrook Community Center YMCA, or you may email your paperwork to JKotar. Please include in the body of your email: “I authorize the Benbrook Community Center YMCA to draft my card on file the $35 league fee registration.”
Please be aware that paperwork turned in that is not complete will have to be sent back and unfortunately your swimmer’s slot will not be secured until we get the completed paperwork back.
As has been true the last few years, we have limited space available in each practice group. In order to ensure your swimmer is on our swim team this fall, please register BEFORE August 28. Beginning August 28, we begin assessments and open registration to the general public.
If you have any questions, please reach out to JKotar. Thanks so much! I’m looking forward to another great season!
I have lots of medals from Lone Star to put in the ribbon box and plan to do that tomorrow. I’ll shoot a text out when I am at the Y in case you want to stop by to get your medals while I am there.
See you at the pool! In a month!
