6/17 Week 1A Carderock @ Somerset
We are now less than one day away from our first A meet of the season! I want to begin by saying that we need as many people to come and cheer our swimmers on tomorrow, as we know Somerset has a lot of spirit and they are close by. We have to show them who has more spirit! The theme for tomorrow is Cuda Blue/"Dress like your Dad" it is your choice!
There have been a few edits to the lineup for tomorrow, and if you have a swimmer in the meet tomorrow, you have been contacted and confirmed that they will show up. We NEED everyone to show up as it now affects the team, not just you or your swimmer. If something comes up, such as your child wakes up sick, I need to know ASAP so we can fill their events with other swimmers. Attached at the bottom of this email is the meet program for tomorrow. If you would like a physical copy, please print it for yourself.
Remember to bring your caps, goggles, and towels! It is going to be a close meet so please bring everyone ready to go and energized!
Swimmers, I want you to meet me outside the gate to the pool no later than 8:10AM so that we can all walk in together. Check-in with Coach Rena upon arrival. Warm-ups start 8:25AM (getting in the water at 8:25!). The meet starts at 9:00am. TEXT COACH BEN (301-801-5426) if you are going to be late.
The meet is at Somerset Pool: 5545 Warwick Place, Chevy Chase, MD 20815. The pool is about 15-20 minutes away so please plan ahead. Parking inside the pool parking lot is reserved for us but is extremely limited. Overflow parking is available on residential side streets but please be mindful not to block any driveways.Our team area is right inside the pool on the left side close to the pool, before the diving boards and deep end.
