Notes From Paton. July 17, 2014

Upcoming Summer Meets!

The summer meet schedule is upon us!

Check our calendar page for all meet dates and meet entry deadlines. We are still using our online meet entry system. Swimmers eligible for various meets will receive email invitations with links to follow for entries.

Important! You do not have to subscribe to Active to process meet entries. I believe at the end of every meet entry process, they put up a page encouraging you to join for $65. There is no advantage to that as far as the swim team goes.

Upcoming meets/events:

July 19, 20 - MRA C meet (Entries due July 7)
July 24-27 - Junior Olympic Championships (20 swimmers currently qualified!) Entries due July 14
August 15-17 - SBA JO Max Summer Wrap up (Entries due August 4)

Check out the meet entry website for meet you can currently sign up for (if eligible)!

Fundraiser to benefit CAF, August 16

Dear Water Polo and Swim Team Families,

We are lucky enough to be involved in a great event that pits La Jolla Aquatics Teams against Coronado Aquatics Teams in a fundraising and 5K swim challenge. A few weeks ago our swim team athletes were able to hear from Coach Joe McCarthy, first hand, about the benefits of CAF to wheel chair bound athletes like Coach McCarthy. Now it is time for us to step up and join the event. Please follow the link below to sign up and get involved. If we can get each athlete, from our middle school water polo players and swimmers to our high school age swimmers and water polo players, to get involved and raise only $250.00 each, we will meet our joint effort of raising $50,000.00. This is a great way for our athletes to learn how amazing and worthwhile it is to do something for someone other than themselves while still thriving on that competitive spirit that runs through each of our athletes.

Please visit the website below and sign up under “join a team” after clicking on the “register” tab.

lajollavscoronado.kintera.org

Additionaly, we are having t-shirts made for the event. Coach McCarthy has found a company that will donate 100% of any profit they would make on the shirts toward our event. The t-shirts are $15.00. We need to pre-order them. Coach McCarthy will be on deck on Friday to take the final orders and collect the $15.00. If you want to order a t-shirt, print this email and staple a check to it for the amount of t-shirts you are ordering. Please write the size(s) you want in the memo portion of the check.

We are looking forward to a great event and I hope you can join me in encouraging your athlete to get involved.

Thank you,

Coach Atwell (La Jolla High School Swim & Polo coach)

Here is a great article in the Union Tribune on our senior, Zach Wallace!

Getting started

Everyone should receive email invoices when dues are due. Bring cash/check payment to practice as soon as possible. Be sure you are registered with USA Swimming if you are not already. This needs to happen by January 1st. Please get this done today.

Familiarize yourselves with this website. You can access meet results, meet schedules, team records and time standards (found on our Team Stats website), plus all you need to know about how meets work on our meetinfo page.

Our Local Swim Committee (LSC) (the SI website) is also very useful and has more detailed meet information under their Meets tab.

Our national governing body is USA Swimming. USA Swimming’s website is http://www.usaswimming.org/. An amazing resource for parents, swimmers, and coaches. Register your swimmers for an account through the USA Swimming website and track all of their times, improvement, and what this sport is all about through Deck Pass.

For those of you using Facebook, I also push interesting articles to our Wind N Sea FB group page Wind N Sea Swim Team. Join the group!


What is happening? Schedule changes in May and June

Pool CLOSED Tuesday, July 15 –– NO PRACTICE

The repairs to the pool's filter system ran into some unexpected problems. The pool will have to remain closed Tuesday. Practice is cancelled.
