Week at a glance

Happy Monday Kigoos!

It was another exciting and full weekend! Congratulations to the many Kigoos who swam in the first finals of the year at the Cloverdale Tritons meet this weekend. A huge thank you to our coaches who put in very long days at the meet to support our swimmers. Thank you also to our Kigoo parent volunteers, especially those who helped out during the finals shifts at the end of each session. We are looking forward to more racing this weekend at WRASA!

On Friday, our coaches ran the first every Kigoos Olympics! Congratulations to Team Italy for winning the cup. It was a fun afternoon of team building activities and relays – a particular highlight was the Artistic Swim portion of the competition. Thank you to all our swimmers who participated (including some of our Tater Tots).

Chef’s Robin and Lisa will be serving dinner at the pool and have the delicious concession menu ready to go! There will also be raffle baskets and other goodies.

We are still in need of many parent volunteers to help make the meet a success! There are still a variety of jobs that need volunteers to run the meet smoothly.
