South Lyon Swimming & Diving: Welcome

HS Swim Lake MI 2014.jpg





1. Next meet - SL vs. Northville @ home on Thursday, September 25.


2. After meet dinners.....For our next home meet, Barb and Tyler Mieske are coordinating the dinner with the sophmore parents. Thank you Barb and Tyler :) October 14th is Senior night, a change from the original schedule.  Amiee Ihara and the junior parents are organizing that dinner. Thank you Junior Parents. :) On October 23rd the freshman class is in charge of the after meet meal. Amy Schams has signed up to coordinate that meal. Thank you Amy. :) She could really use some assistance with planning.  

As far as the after meet dinners go, each class is assisgned to host a meal. They are responsible for organizing, setting up, serving, and clean up. Boosters provide $85.00-$100.00 towards meal. The meal can pretty much be whatever you want. In the past years the main course has been pasta, subs, pulled pork ect.  And then the side dishes are brought by other parents in the class. There tend to be paper products and silverware in the room behind the pool. It would be best to check before you turn to host. If not, you will need to purchase and boosters will reimburse.
Be sure to keep your receipts. Treasure cannot reimburse without reciepts. Sorry. Senior night is put on by the junior class. The amount the boosters provides for this meal is different then the usual after meet meals. So be sure to check with the treasure for exact amount. 
If anyone has questions, you can contact Barb Mieske @, she is the overall dinner coordinator, Kim Plohetski @ or Marica Tyahla @  
For the visiting team dinners, Jennifer Liskey@ has signed up to be the overall coordinator. Thank you Jennifer. :) The volunteer who signs up to do this is responsible for finding out how many girls are on the team and calling and ordering Hungry Howie Pizza, usually delivered between 7:45 and 8:00 pm. We plan on 2 slices per girl. Let Mark Tyahla, the treasurer, know the amount and he will write a check. You can find him on the pool deck or email him or you can email Marcia @ and she will let him know.
3. Parents of morning swimmers - Please sign up to bring breakfast for morning swim practices. The breakfast should be something that is healthy, filling, quick to eat, and should include something to drink. Possible suggestions: bagels, muffins, yogurt, granola bars, fruit, etc. Parents do not need to stay with the breakfast, however they can stay if they want to. All of the doors to the building are locked once practice begins. If Coach Burch knows exactly when someone is coming, he can let them in the door that the girls go in in the morning (by the diving boards), but he is required to keep the building secure and locked once practice begins. Another option is to send the food and drinks with the swimmer directly. There have been 30-33 swimmers attending morning practices. NO FOOD CAN BE LEFT IN THE LOCKER ROOM!!!! The leftover food can be put in the coaches office, however it needs to be taken home after the PM practice. The locker room must be 100% clean when the girls leave for school. NO wrappers, crumbs, etc. To sign up, please go to "Team Information" and click on "2014 Volunteer Signups."


4. Bob Taylor has graciously agreed to be our team publicist (thank you!!!), but unfortunately cannot attend some of the meets due to his work schedule. While it is easy to provide the final scores/results in a PDF, can any of you take notes to help him add those special touches of excitement and play-by-play action? Please email Kathy Dunnuck at GO SOUTH LYON!


5. Our Girls Swim and Dive team are selling raffle tickets this year. Each girl is responsible for raising $150.00 and it may be done a few different ways.... sell 30 raffle tickets at $5 each, sell some raffle tickets and issue payment for the difference, or sell no tickets and issue payment for the full amount. Prizes include Detroit Lions tickets, Michigan/Michigan State football tickets, Plymouth Whalers tickets, and a Best Buy gift card. Drawing will occur at the October 14th home meet. Raffle rules and State of Michigan regulations were included in your athlete's ticket packet.



6. If you have not already done so, please turn in your cans or money/receipts for our South Lyon United Girls Swim and Dive Can Drive. Sara Plohetski is collecting.

"If you fail to prepare, you're prepared to fail."   Mark Spitz


 "Being your best is not so much about overcoming the barriers other people place in front of you as it is about overcoming the barriers we place in front of ourselves. It has nothing to do with how many times you win or lose. It has no relation to where you finish in a race or whether you break world records. But it does have everything to do with having the vision to dream, the courage to recover from adversity and the determination never to be shifted from your goals." Kieren Perkins 


 "Persistence can change failure into extraordinary achievement."   Matt Biondi
