Champs Results – now LONE STAR!!

Congratulations on another League Championship, Barracudas!!! I’m so proud of all of our swimmers! I have attached the results, and when summer league champs results are in, that means… it’s time to register for Lone Star!!!

What we’ve been working towards all year… it’s time. So click on that meet entry tab and find the Lone Star Meet Entry Form… go ahead and fill that out – swimmers are allowed to swim TEN individual events and we encourage them to swim all 10. Each event they swim gives the team and the individual a chance to earn more points. (a swimmer usually must do all 10 for a chance to win a high point award). I have attached the important meet information here. Much of the Lone Star info packet attached in the Lone Star tab is for coaches, so I have sent just a short version here – the essentials for you as you get ready to register. But all you need to do is fill out the entry form and submit it. And then PLEASE check the entries ASAP when I send them back out to you! I make mistakes, and sometimes entry forms don’t get submitted, so check those entries!

Entries are due THIS TUESDAY BY MIDNIGHT!!! (or 8am Wednesday, BUT NO LATER!) It takes me a VERY long time to do entries for Lone Star so in order for me to get them in by the deadline, I must have your entries by midnight Tuesday.

Let’s go for the THREEPEAT!!

One more TAT tomorrow and one more Sparticus tomorrow! And revised practice schedule will be coming soon.

See you at the pool!

Hi Barracudas! Below is a letter from the meet host! Please read! Warmup times are also attached!

We are looking forward to having all of you at our meet this weekend! I am attaching a copy of the warm up assignments for the meet so you can make your swimmers aware of their scheduled time in the pool. Saturday we will have 2 warm ups per session and Sunday there will be 3 warm ups during the allotted time. To make the most of the time your group will have in the pool, it will be helpful for you to be ready. I hope this helps.

There are a few things your parents should know so they have a great experience. We do not have deck space available for spectator seating. Your swim families will need to bring ez up tents, and camp chairs for seating, as they have done at other outdoor pools this summer. They may put these up outside the pool fence as close to the pool as possible. Please do not set up tents and chairs on the track just west of the pool or on any of the playing fields in case there are baseball or soccer games tomorrow.

Families may come onto the pool deck to watch swimmers compete at the TURN END of the pool ONLY. After their swimmer’s event they need to return to their seating outside the fence. We need to keep the start end of the pool clear for meet workers and swimmers. PLEASE make your parents aware of this so we do not have to continually ask parents to move.

Ready Bench is always a challenge! For younger swimmers, please have a coach bring your swimmers to the Ready Bench instead of parents to cut down on congestion in this essential area. It is very difficult to navigate all the young swimmers around all the moms and dads. Please ask parents to let a coach take their kids to the Ready Bench!

Please have your parents park at the south end of our parking lot by the outdoor pool. Entry to the meet is from the pool deck at the southwest gate by the concession stand. Parking at the south end of the lot is actually closer and there will be less distance to carry everything they bring. There will also be parking available ON SATURDAY ONLY at Good Shepherd Episcopal Church just west of our YMCA on Northaven. It is a quick walk across the field or around the track. Parking outside the available lots on Northaven Road or any of the side streets will result in your cars being towed by the police. Please be sure your parents know this! This has happened before!

It is great to host this meet at our pool as we have 10 lanes! But that also means we need 30 timers to keep the meet running. It will work for everyone because it will help the meet to run on time, and get everyone home sooner. Each team needs to supply timers so PLEASE TELL YOUR PARENTS they will need to help with this part of the meet. It is also a great way to be on the deck too!

We hope everyone has a fun meet!


champs entry report

Hi Barracudas! Please take a look at the Champs entries! I made some changes. Please know that even though this is a Champs meet, it is more important that we update times to be prepared and set up well for Lone Star.

See you at the pool!

Team Swim Suits

Good evening. I have received the team suit orders and will be at the Westside YMCA tomorrow, Friday from 8 – 11 am for distribution. I will send an email with more pickup times Sunday evening.

Thank you

Hi Barracudas! Here is the meet info for Summer Champs that is happening July 7 and 8. You do not have to compete both days but if you are only doing one day, PLEASE make that known to us on the comment section of the entry form. And the $20 fee is flat, so if you only do one day the fee is $20 or if you do both days, the fee is still $20. So you may as well get your money’s worth and just do both days. =)

Entries are due via the google entry form on the blog by MIDNIGHT SATURDAY JUNE 30. All results are in and I’ve sent the meet eligibility report so you should be able to look at it in the next couple of days and then go ahead and send in those entries. Please contact me with any questions!

I’m excited about these last two meets! Our swimmers are doing great and I think our team will do really well. We just need everyone there!

See you at the pool!

New Lone Star Eligibility Report

Hello Barracudas! We all survived the hot meet Saturday! And I was really proud of all of our swimmers. Only one more meet until Lone Star!! Please make sure to take a look at this report and sign up for events for Summer Champs accordingly. We want your swimmer to qualify for as many events as possible (up to 10).

Summer Champs is July 7&8 and I will send out the meet information soon. Entries for that will be THIS Saturday, June 30th. You must get those entries in by midnight Saturday. With the 4th of July in the middle of the week the meet director must have our entries earlier than usual. So please get them in by the end of this Saturday. Thank you so much! I hope we have a great turnout for Champs, and an even better turnout for Lone Star! Let’s bring home our 3rd State championship in a row!
