CAR PARKING SCHEDULE
Parents / Swimmers,
I have attached a signup sheet for car parking for the rest of the season so please pick at least 2 weeks to help share the work. We need at least 2 to 3 more adults per game. If I don’t have all weeks filled (8 adults per game) by Wed, Sep 11. I will need to assign the remaining weeks to parents that have not provided their preference. Jamie has asked me to track who works and the total funds raised and the parents/swimmer not participating may be asked to make up the difference of the pool and transportation cost.
Please email email@example.com ,or text/call (850) 642-1856.
Team Meeting News
This year I am collecting $200 from each swimmer. This can be a check you write, or you can get sponsors. I have attached a sponsor letter. This money will go towards the cost of suits, shirts, warmups, meet entry fees, and transportation costs. If you wish to use last year's suits you only need to raise $150. The sponsor money and suit sizes need to be in to me by Friday the 23rd so we have a chance to get the suits in by the pentathlon on the 29th. I have girls' suits in all sizes for the purpose of trying on if necessary.
To pay our pool costs for practice ($150 a day) we collect money for cars parking in the school parking lot during home games. The Petrbok's coordinate this, but all families are asked to work two games. The schedule is below. You need to be there at 5:30 and expect to work through the end of the 3rd quarter. Please notify the Petrboks at firstname.lastname@example.org to let them know when you can work.
The first game is next week...Aug 30th.

In the past we have bagged for tips to help with some expenses as well. We had some days scheduled, but they were cancelled by WinnDixie. The kids are interested in standing outside WalMart and 'begging' as they call it and doing carwashes. I would love to have a parent coordinate those activities. The best places for car washes are the auto parts stores, so a few calls to them and to Walmart should get those scheduled. Let me know if you can help out with this.
We have a few meets scheduled. Keep an eye on http://www.swimchs.com/ for updates.
I have my district planning meeting on Thursday and should have a more definitive schedule then.
I had Oct 5th on my calendar for the NWFl Invitational. We are going to cancel that since it is homecoming weekend.
Just a reminder that the kids need to come to practice with extra goggles and cap, water bottle, and gym shoes.
Please do not hestitate to call me if you have any questions.
JUNIORS and SENIORS
If you are interested in swimming in college you need to register with the NCAA Clearinghouse. It is something you do online.
Prevent Swimmer's Ear
Swimmer's ear is 100% preventable and missing a week of practice right now is detrimental to your training. You can prevent swimmers ear by simply putting alcohol drops in your ears every day after practice. It's that easy. No one is immune to this. The chlorine in the pool kills everyone's natural bacteria lining that protects the ear. Get with a buddy and treat each other before you leave the Y. Don't let your team mate go to school without it. Further information can be found HERE.
