Welcome and Welcome Back: News You Can Use
Good Morning All
Welcome again to the Easton Aquatic Club 2022 swim season. We just got word from the city that Heil Pool will be good for this Thursday. I hope everybody is looking forward to getting started.
Swimmers will be moved into their initial practice groups today (Black, Red, White, Development). Your practice groups will determine the swimmers you practice with, warm up with at meets, and what time and lanes you practice in. The groups assigned today will be initial groups and are subject to change based on skill level and coaches discretion. The groups are aligned differently from last season in order to maximize space, coaches and get everybody some more personal instruction.
For THIS Thursday and Friday:
- Black: 9:30-10:15
- Red, White, Development: 10:30-11:30
No equipment is needed beyond goggles and a one piece swimsuit, “jammers”, or “speedo” briefs (if you’re new and your swimmer doesn’t have a one piece, or just swim trunks that is okay for the first few practices but try to get one as soon as possible. If you need assistance please email me directly).
Swim meets don’t/can’t run without volunteers. If you haven't already, please sign up to volunteer for the meets on the schedule. Several positions require some online prep available here: PJSL Officials. We WILL NEED OFFICIALS to run the meets. In the past our team family has been great about having volunteers and have never had to rely on another team’s officials to run a meet, we’d like to see that tradition continue.
An important part of providing the best meet experience for all involved is letting the coaching staff know which meets you plan to be at and which ones you will not be at. Meet line ups are done in advance, if you have not declared for a meet you will not be entered into the lineup. Please follow instructions for entering meets here: How to declare for a meet
Dual meets: you will only need to accept or decline, coaches pick the lineup
Invitationals: you will see a list of events and need to pick which events you would like to swim.
Things change quick at an outdoor pool. If you havent already please download the swimtopia app (your sign in is the same as the site), and follow us on social media:Facebook, Instagram, Twitter all “@eastonaquatic”
I look forward to another great season. See you Thursday!
