Freestyle Frenzy Update

Alright ladies, entries have been finalized and sent in for our Freestyle Frenzy THIS Friday!  You were asked to have emailed me by last night (info. went out in multiple emails) if you are not able to attend the meet this Friday.  I only heard from 7 girls, so that means the rest of you have been entered in events.  At this point if you can not attend due to any reason other than an illness or family emergency, it will be an unexcused absence. Unfortunately, I think a few of you fall into this category.  Please make sure you are reading everything that is sent out!!!

Remember, our warm-ups start at 7:15 at the new QDD pool.  Please be on deck ready to swim by 7:00!  Hopefully I will see you at practice tomorrow!

Bus To Freedom Center

Hey gang!  Unfortunately, the only bus that the county can provide us, is the same bus we took on Wednesday and Thursday of last week.  You will continue to ride bus 209 and it will leave at the same time as the other busses.  We know this is an inconvenience, but the other option is to not have a bus, then those of you that don't drive will not be able to participate and be on the team.

One of the coaches will be there each day after school, so bring your HW and we will do our best to help you out!

Today's the Day!

Don't forget - tryouts begin today at the Freedom Center.  If you have your own car you may drive yourself and any siblings, that's it.  Be dressed on pool deck ready to swim by 3:15.  We will meet in the bleachers.  If you do not have your own transportation, you must ride the OP bus which will leave from the FRONT of the school promptly at 2:45.  Be outside waiting by 2:40.

 

If you show up to tryouts and we do not have your name on the cleared list, you do NOT get to try out.  So far there are about 5 of you that I know want to try out, but you are not cleared.... it is your responsibility to ensure that everything is set and ready to go.

 

See you all today!

Transportation Requirements 2013-2014

Parents,

   We apologize for the delay in this information, but the county and the school are still figuring out what they want, so we are in a holding pattern. Many of you heard from your children last night that our transportation policy has changed this year. The school discovered that OP, as well as many high schools in the county, were not in compliance with liability coverage when it came to transportation home from practice. Since the school provides transportation to practice, we are liable for how students get home. As a result, the new policy, for now, is that parents may only drive their swimmer home and they must “check” their swimmer out. This means that even if you live next door to another swimmer, you cannot drive them home. It is a liability issue. Students who can drive, can still drive to and from practice, but can only transport themselves and siblings.  There will still be a bus that transports swimmers to the pool that will leave the front of OP @ 2:45.  Unless you are driving yourself, this is how you will get to the Freedom Center.

We are working with the school and county lawyer to try and find an effective system that reduces liability, We will let you know if the policy changes, but for now this is what we are required to follow.

Thanks,

Coach Ragghianti and Seligman

Calling all parents!!

Parents we need your help!!!  We would love at least 10 volunteers to help us with timing at try-outs this year.  We would need you there from 3:15-4:30.  Your responsibilities would be to write down swimmers names, and their times!  On Tuesday 11/12, the girls will be swimming the 200 IM and 100 free.  We will be putting them in heats and then behind the blocks.  On Wednesday 11/13, the boys will be doing the same.  On Thursday 11/14 everyone will be swimming one additional event of their choosing.

 

If you can only volunteer one or two days, that's fine!  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Please email Kay Finley at kgfinley18@gmail.com.  Please let her know which dates you can help out. 

 

We are excited to start our 2013-14 season and can't wait to meet all of the new parents and share another season with the returning ones!!
