Meet 1/7 CANCELED due to Storm

Hi All,

 
Due to the impending storm, we have decided that it is in the best interest of all involved, to cancel today's meet.  This meet will NOT be made up due to schedule conflicts with both teams.
 
The USA meet being held tomorrow (Sunday) at MIT is still on as of now, but we will let you know if that status changes.

Sr. White added practice

Sr. White will have a coached practice on the following Thursdays from 7:30-9pm for those who want or are able to attend.

Tech Suits

Championship season is right around the corner!  Please see the attached flyer containing information about tech suits for our upcoming Championship meets.  Our team is able to place one order a season at a greatly discounted price.  If you think that your swimmer would like to purchase a technical suit, now is the time to do it!
 
Please make sure that you visit the www.speedo.com website for sizing information.  Generally these suits are 2-3 sizes SMALLER than your team suit. Tech suits should be tight!  These suits are OPTIONAL and suggested for experienced swimmers who have previously competed, or expect to compete, at New Englands, Age Groups or above. 
 
Our team has a very strict policy regarding tech suits brand and color (we wear Speedo brand only and suits must be predominantly black in color). Please contact Rosalie to ask advice before purchasing any other suit that your swimmer may want to wear at a Championship Meet.  
 
If you wish to purchase a tech suit please submit the suit form found on our webpage (form will be located on the home page or our webpage) AND make payment to the Welcome Center by Wednesday December 28th at 7pm.  THESE SUITS ARE NON RETURNABLE!

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.

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!
