The Fall session is nearing its end. Here’s what remains, and some schedule adjustments, too. . .
Week of November 13th: Regular practice schedule.
- Guppies 3:45-4:30
- Minnows 4:30-5:30
- Sharks 5:30-6:45
Week of November 20th: Monday-Wednesday, there will be just two practice ‘groups’ each day:
- 3:45-4:45 Guppies, plus some Minnows
- 4:45-6:00 Sharks, plus other Minnows
Minnows, you may choose which practice to come to. Understand that the first practice will be easier and the second one quite a bit more challenging.
Then Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, from 9:00-noon, will be our annual Swimathon to benefit the city of Oakland learn-to-swim fund. Along with the Swimathon is “Private Lesson Day “: you can sign up for a bit of one-on-one time with Bill in the water (10 minutes). A sign-up sheet for Private Lesson Day will go up at the pool the Monday before Thanksgiving. (If you will be out of town or otherwise unavailable to come to the Swimathon the day after Thanksgiving, you can still do a make-up one any afternoon the next week, Mon.-Thurs. Bill will be at the pool working with the swimmers going to JO’s.)
That will be the end of the Fall session for all swimmers except those who’ve qualified for the Junior Olympics. The Winter session, with just the Minnows and Sharks active, begins Monday, Jan. 8th. Minnows will practice then from 3:45-4:45, Sharks from 4:45-6:00. Winter session meet schedule coming soon . . . .
