Temporary practice change REVISED 11/7

Hi,
Unfortunately our coaching staff has been plagued by illness and injury this season and we need to make another temporary adjustment to the practice schedule!  This change will affect the Sr. Whites and Sr. Blacks only!!  All other practice days/times will remain the same.  We really appreciate your understanding in this matter.  
 
In the 11 years our team has been established we have NEVER had to change practice times mid-season!  We appreciate your cooperation as we try our best to allow your swimmers to continue to practice while we deal with this illness and injury that is out of our control.
 
Beginning on Monday November 14th

Mondays 7-9pm w/Marisa  *2 hour practice
 
Thursdays 7:30-8:30p (this will be an open lap lane specifically for the Sr. Whites to use, but will be un-coached)
 
Saturdays 1:15-3:15p w/Marisa  *2 hour practice
 
Sr. Blacks
Mondays 5:30-7p w/Rosalie

Above is the link for directions on how to order team apparel through our vendor Varsity Swim.
Please remember that all of these items are purchased online and all orders are non-refundable.  
The deadline to place an order is October 13th
 
We will not be able to place any additional orders after this deadline.
 
ALL swimmers MUST HAVE a team suit, cap and t-shirt.  If you have last year's suit, t-shirt, and cap, and they still fit and are in good condition, then you do not need to purchase a new one. Team suits and caps should be worn for meets only! 

Suit Fitting

Reminder the suit fitting will be held at the YMCA on Tuesday October 4th from 5:30-7:30pm in room 22 (across from the locker rooms).  All new swimmers should plan on attending at some point so that you can make sure to get the right size suit.  Our suits come with our logo on them so they cannot be returned and you cannot get a refund, so come eliminate the guesswork and try them on with us!
All swimmers NEED a team suit, team cap and team and t-shirt. 
 
If you are a returning swimmer you can still wear last year'ssuit, as long as it is still in good condition.  If you did not order asuitlast year, you need to order a new one this season, so come to thefitting! 
 
The vendor will also have other apparel (warm-up suits, hoodies, shorts, caps) to try on at the fitting.  ** Please remind your swimmer that team suits and caps are for meets ONLY and should NOT be worn to practice!
 
USA swimmers NEED at least 2 caps, a jacket or hoodie.  Full warm-up suits (jacket and pants) and bags are also suggested for USA swimmers.
 
There will be NO purchases made on Tuesday.  This is just a fitting to make sure you will be ordering the correct size.  All purchases will be made at a later date, online, through our vendor.  Instructions on ordering will be given to you at the fitting.
 
If you cannot come to the fitting you can always drive over to Varsity Swim Shop (our vendor).  They are located at 157 Main St. in North Reading.  Their hours are limited. We are very lucky that they come to us, so I would recommend attending on Oct. 4th.
 
Please let me know if you have any questions!
