Week 0 Email


Hello Tigers!

Swim & Dive Season is fast approaching! We are so excited to get back into the pool and begin what we’re sure will be a fantastic season. 

I will send an email like this each Sunday throughout the season with important updates and the weekly schedule. Please read carefully, and let me know if there is another email you would like me to add to the mailing list. If your student signed up but no longer will be participating, please let me know ASAP so that they can be removed from the roster and mailing list. 

First Day of Practice Monday 1/22 5-6:30pm (Swim) 3:45-5:45pm (Dive): We begin our season tomorrow on Monday, January 22nd. Divers will practice from 3:45-5:45 and swimmers will practice from 5-6:30pm. Please arrive at the pool with everything you will need to be in the water. We will meet on the bleachers before beginning practice.

Coaching Team: We are very pleased that Coaches Jackson Mendes (swim) and Jocelyn Jones (dive) are returning this season. Coach Kellie Hickey, whom many of you know from water polo season, will be joining me (Duncan Wanless) as head coach this season. We look forward to meeting all the new athletes and their families in the coming weeks. 

Physicals must be up-to-date to practice: Please ensure that your swimmer has an up-to-date FUSD physical completed and on file with AD Hector Verduzco. Physicals are valid for 12 months from the date of the appointment. No athlete can participate in practice until a physical is complete. 

Parent Meeting Monday 1/29 6:15-6:45pm in Room W211: We will have a parent meeting on Monday, 1/29 in Room W211 (my classroom). We will begin the meeting as the students are finishing their cooldown, cleaning up the pool, and changing so that the impact on your schedule is hopefully as minimal as possible. This will be an opportunity for us to explain the schedule and expectations for the season as well as answer any questions. We look forward to meeting you then!

Preliminary Season Schedule attached: See the attached document for an outline of all competitions throughout the season. If you know there are already conflicts with longstanding and immovable family commitments, please let us know ASAP. It is very important that all athletes are present for all events, especially at the end of the season. 

Boosters Meeting Wednesday 1/17: The EHS Aquatics Boosters will be having a meeting on Wednesday, January 17 at 6pm at the Seng Residence (1672 W Escalon Ave Fresno CA 93711). Any and all parents and family members are welcome to join to help the Boosters support the team throughout the season. 

Edison Region Aquatics Website: Thanks to the talents of Mr. Vinson at Gaston, we now have a one-stop-shop for all things Aquatics in the Edison Region! Visit www.edisonregion.com to see the pool schedule and other relevant information. 

Athletes Participating in Winter Sports: Come join us as soon as your sport wraps up! Also please let me know that you will still be participating so that we can keep you on the roster and plan appropriately for the size of the team. We look forward to seeing you in the pool this February. 

Schedule for the Week of 1/22

Go Tigers!
