The Week At A Glance July 17
It has been another great weekend at the pool! We had a large group of swimmers attend the WRASA meet, and our club came away with many best times, finals swims, and podium finishes! Congratulations to all of our swimmers for a great meet! If you have any “Podium Pics” please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can add them to our social media posts. Thank you also to our many parents who volunteered for timing and official shifts. We are proud to say that the announcer never needed to call for Kigoos timers to report to their lanes!
We have another busy week ahead of us, with more detailed emails to be sent out, so this is just a highlight of the important dates/reminders for this week:
