Week 1: 1/22-1/26


Hello Tigers!

The time has come! Coach Kellie, Coach Jocelyn, Coach Jackson, and I are so excited to meet everybody starting out in Aquatics for the first time this season and to kick the season off. Please, if there are ever any questions or concerns, get in touch with me anytime by email. 

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 getting changed and beginning practice.

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!

Expectations Packet sent home on Monday: Athletes will receive a season Expectations packet that requires both student and guardian acknowledgement. Please read, sign, and return that document as soon as possible so we know that you understand the commitments and standards of behavior for our high school athletes. As always, feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns. 

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!
