Coach Dan will be out of town the next two weeks. The front desk volunteer will be writing workouts in his absence (written by Dan). Let the volunteer know if you have any questions. Thank you in advance for your patience!
The pool will be closed next Tuesday, January 30th, so we will not hold practice then.
The pool will be closed Monday February 19th in observance of Columbus Day. In lieu of practice, we will hold happy hour at Spirits of 76 in Arlington from 6:30-8pm.
We are still looking for a front desk volunteer every other Sunday. You’ll get a free swim each time you work the desk! It’s an easy commitment. Email us if interested!
This is your final reminder to renew your USMS membership. Starting today, if you do not have a current USMS membership, you will be turned away at practice. The cost of renewal is $65 (which includes USMS, Zone and ARMS fees all in one). The link to renew here. Bring proof of membership (either printed or via cellphone) to the front desk, where the front desk volunteer will be checking you off a list once you have renewed. USMS membership is necessary for liability and insurance.
In the beginning of the year, we tend to see an increase in swimmers. Brush up on your swim etiquette to ensure a fun and productive practice for all. Practices are capped at 30 swimmers (29 swimmers plus 1 front desk volunteer), so make sure to arrive early.
Finally, the annual Tropical Splash Meet will be held in Alexandria, VA on Sunday January 28th. This is a great meet to ease back into competitive swimming. The registration deadline is January 19th. More info to follow!
