Greetings Riptide,

We have had a couple weeks’ practice now after the group adjustments and I hope all of you have been able to make some new friends in your lanes. Our team continues to welcome new swimmers every week so I want to remind you to introduce yourselves when you see a new person working out with your group. It is always nice when you are in a new place to have someone say hi and make you feel welcome. If we all make an effort than our team will be much better and it will make practice time more fun as well.

Speaking of new friends… how many of you have introduced yourself to Coach Coral yet? I’ll give you an incentive: the first two swimmers who come tell me about a new teammate they met in the last two weeks can pick a prize from my bin. This is good for tonight or Wednesday night only.

Go Riptide!
