Greetings Riptide,

The last meet of the season is finally upon us. JO Max… thanks to everyone who signed up and good luck to those swimming tonight in the IM and distance races! I think this is going to be a fun weekend!! Don’t skip tonight’s workout however, it is important to be in the pool the day before a big meet. We will only be swimming for about 20-30 minutes to stay loose, get a few sprints in, and talk a bit about the meet.

I hope to enter a lot of relays this weekend and we will have a list of entries at the meet. When you get checked in and warmed up, look at the list and if you are on it you have to do two things: 1. confirm with your parents that you can stay for the race(s) and pay the fee (its $1.75 per swimmer in each relay) and 2. give the entry fee to the coaches when you tell them you are going to participate. Please do this early so we can get replacements for anyone who cannot stay.

Last thing… I know we are still not done with short course season, but the entries for our first long course meet are due tonight… please turn them in if you are going.

Today’s number is (5).

Go Riptide!
