The coaches would like to continue to remind everyone of the importance of proper hydration and nutrition - especially during the hot days of summer. Every swimmer should always have a water bottle at practice (on deck and during dryland) and be sure that they are eating a healthy meal and/or snack before practice.
Recall that Advanced and Next Generation swimmers are invited to swim at the Nor-Gwyn (1 Parkside Pl, North Wales) long course outdoor pool starting on June 20th (Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday 6:30-8:30 a.m. and 8:30-9:30 a.m. dryland). See details and dates on the team website calendar. The coaches strongly encourage Advanced and Next Generation swimmers to take advantage of this opportunity. Swimmers wishing to take advantage of this opportunity will pay a flat fee of $50 for any level of participation. If your Advanced or Next Generation swimmer would like to swim at Nor-Gwyn, please email me no later than May 31st and your $50 fee will be included in your June bill.
