Re Championships: They have changed the sessions a little bit. Now 13 & over is in the morning and 12 & under is in the afternoon.That means they put the 11 & 12 group in the afternoon. They also added a $5 swimmer surcharge to the meet. If you have already paid for your events, please go back and pay for the surcharge next time you are at the Y. If you have any questions, please let me know. Thanks, Coach Bill

Unfortunately we are unable to reschedule yesterday's swim meet with Cloverfield. We have been lucky with the weather this summer, but our luck ran out.

Now we have to look forward to Championships. We have not received a meet notice (the league is trying to finalize it), but we must move forward in getting our entries together. A list of qualifiers has been posted, as well as a list of events in the order that they will be swum. Champs will be held at Seaford Boys and Girls Club on Saturday 7/26. The 11 & over session is in the morning and 10 & under is in the afternoon. The entry procedure is the same as for an invitational...fill out a form and pay for events at the front desk. Sign up for individual events first, and when we put together the relays, go back and pay the relay fees.The deadline for entries is Wednesday evening 7/16. If you can't get to the Y between now and then, email your entries to Coach Bill and pay next time you get to the Y. Practice is still open to all swimmers until the end of the season Friday 7/25.

We are having our awards picnic at the Y on Sunday 7/27 from 3-6. Keep an eye on your email and the web site for more details. If you have any questions please let us know. Thanks, The Coaches
