Inclement Weather Proceedures (Practice)

I would like to first say, if you have not signed up for the Remind app, please do so ASAP. This will be my only mode of communication for the team for sending out information regarding changing practice schedules and other important announcements. Our class code is @clippers12 

This week looks like it may present with some less than desirable weather for swim practice.For this season, the inclement weather procedures are listed below. An official copy of the inclement weather procedures can be found on the team's Google Drive at https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B3fY3Jr1Gyr6bFJSZE5GeWpiOXc


INCLEMENT WEATHER PLAN (practice 2017)

In the event of inclement weather, Coach Warner will send out a "Remind" announcement no later than 7:00am the morning of practice.

If the weather is not suitable or not safe for swimming, an hour long dryland practice will be held for ALL SWIMMERS from 8:00-9:00 am in the Kingston Community Center Banquet Room.

Please keep in mind:

  • The "dryland only" practices begin at 8:00 am, half an hour earlier than the blue (older kids') team usually practices. Please check your Remind app announcements early enough to make it on time
  • If you do not receive any announcements from Coach Warner, please assume practice is happening as usual
  • These practices are considered regular practices and are mandatory. Missed inclement weather practices could affect your meet eligibility.

Thank you and I will see you all tomorrow!

please respond by 5:00 or your child will not swim in SMI

This is the last call. We only have had 6 people sign up for SMI on Saturday the 16th and 2 for Sunday the 17th. The older kids (11 & up) race Saturday, the younger group (10 & under) race Sunday. Please go to the Kingston clippers page and RSVP, Even if your child will not be attending. They are giving us an extension of today, since the deadline passed on the 1st of July. We must know by 5:00 today if your child will be attending. This is one of the meets that we pay a fee per child and need to have actual numbers. If your child doesn't not RSVP we will assume that your child will not be swimming. This is a really fun meet for the kids, it is one they look forward to every year. We have the opportunity to have the kids swim in mixed relays at this meet which is 2 boys and 2 girls from each age group; an opportunity we have only at SMI and City meet.

If you have issues RSVP-ing please contact rich@swim-team.us or let Kelly know by 5:00 PM today!!!

Please take the time to go in and RSVP for all future meets. EYF is next week and we only have a few RSVP's. Again if you are not RSVP'ed then your child will not be able to swim. This is a very important part of being on swim team. We need your confirmations whether your child is, or is not going to be at the meets. Thank you so much for your response to this in a timely manor.

Meet stuff

Just wanted to thank each person that helped out for our Meet on Tuesday night. We couldn't have do it without all of you. So, from the bottom of my heart Thank you and know that I appreciate each one of you and your efforts to help make this team a success.

There are a few issues that came up at the meet that I would like to make everyone aware of so we don't have problems in the future.

First, we need everyone to be aware of their children and where they are at all times. It is a difficult job to be the volunteer running bull pen without having to go and hunt children down so they can get ready to swim their events. So we ask that you please keep track of your swimmers. We will not look for your child to swim their event. If they do not hear their event number or name (which is called multiple times throughout the meet, then your child may not swim. We want the kids to have a good time and swim all their events, but if they aren't in our designated areas, then we can't make sure they swim all they are supposed to swim in. They not only miss out on a race as an individual swimmer, but it also hurts the total team score if we are missing swimmers. So please, don't let your kids run to and fro and all around a pool deck and what not. Keep them near you until it is their time to swim so we can make everyone's jobs easier and make sure that the kids don't miss their events. 

Second, We asked that no balls be brought to the meet. We had a ball that was brought and was thrown at some swimmers heads many times and it causes not only distraction and irritation, but a potential for someone to get hurt. So, please leave any balls at home on meet AND practice day. 

Third, We have had some issues with kids being rough with each other, name calling kids taking it into their own hand and threatening other kids and just plain unsportsman-like conduct. This will not be tolerated. If there is an issue between swimmers, please let a parent volunteer know, or your own parent, then find a board member (Jen Rossi, Frank Colandro, Lisa Klein, Aubrey Rossi, of Kelly Helton) or one of the coaches.

Lastly, Make sure your kids are at the pool no later than 5:00. We only have 15 minutes to warm up which they need every minute of. They need to have their events on their body some where as well as name and team on their backs.

Thank you all so much. It is great to have a win after our first meet! Looking forward to a great season this year!
