Here we go! The 2019 Season Starts Tomorrow!
Hello Pirate Family!
This is it! The official start of SAIL swim season!
We’d like to give a huge THANK YOU to Miranda Carson, Janet Kulig, Dixie Nance and Jaime Mogle for assisting with our dryland conditioning. We had a great turn out and we will definitely consider doing this every year.
Water practices start Monday May 13 at 5pm for 10 and under. 11 and up will practice at 6pm. This schedule will continue through June 5th. On June 6th we will begin morning practices. 10 and under will practice at 8am and 11 and up practice at 9am. Please see the practice schedule on the website for more information. Our meet schedule is also available on the website. If your child is new to swimming or has never been on a swim team before, and you need to complete a coach’s evaluation please see Coach Alyssa or Katie before practice.
As many of you know we have been using SwimTopia for a few years. Recently SwimTopia updated their mobile app to include push notifications. We will be taking advantage of this option this season. We will no longer use RainedOut for weather delays or immediate notifications. Please download the SwimTopia app and enable push notifications. If you choose not to do this, the default notification (an email) will go into effect for you. There is also an option to upgrade to the SwimTopia pro plan for $1.99 a month. This will give you access to meet notifications, team standings, heat sheet and lane assignments, event and heat expected start times. You can read more about it on the SwimTopia website, or in the SwimTopia app.
What does this mean for you? It means information will be in one place. Team communications will be posted as news posts on the website. You will get an email with the news post information but it will also be on the website. Information that you need to know immediately will come through as an alert to the mobile app. These alerts will also be posted as news posts on the website.
If you have questions please see Katie or Dixie at practice or you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are looking forward to a fun season! We’ll see you all on Monday.
