First Full Weeks of Boys

Before getting into full details on the boy's week.

Girl's banquet is on Wednesday night.  If you haven't please contact Nancy Meyers who is organizing the banquet.  I will be collecting all jackets on Wednesday Night.  Any athlete who doesn't turn it in will be billed by the district.

Boy's first full week of the season.  This included AM practice.  All athletes have full AM practices this week, this is only for this week.  Our AM Schedule goes.  Tuesday 6AM - West, Wednesday 6AM - South, Friday 6AM - West.

Entrance at West is the main Biester Gym entrance(lower building)

Entrance at South is Door 19.

Saturday practice is currently TBA, I am hoping to have that figured out tomorrow before practice.  Practice will be sometime between 9:30am and 4:00pm.

Carpool's appear to be set.  Please know that carpools can't change, and this is the only allowable driving combination.  If you have any questions please contact me.

Finally, we have team pictures immediately after practice on Monday 11/30, pictures are at West in Biester Gym.  I know I don't have order forms, but they will be handed out at practice.  You can also order online once pictures come in.

First, a quick congrats to the girl's on a great season.  Banquet will be Wednesday December 2nd at South in the Commons.

Moving onto boy's tryouts.

Monday the 23rd of November.
All West athletes should meet in Biester lobby immediately after school.  We will be sorting out carpool and shuttle bus.
All South athletes should meet in the GS lobby between the main gym and the fieldhouse immediately after school.  We will be sorting out carpool and shuttle bus.

We will then figure everything else out during the last part of Monday practice going forward.

All athletes must be registered in PowerSchools, have an up to date physical and have completed the extracurricular code of conduct form.

I do want to welcome Coach Vince to our program.  I hope to get a full write up on him later in the week.  He will be running our JV program for the boy's.

Boy's Informational Meeting

BOYS MEETING

I wanted to let you know that we will be running a very short parent informational meeting this coming Thursday November 5th, 2015 at Glenbard West in Rooms 224/225 at 7pm..

This meeting is non-committal and way for me to explain team policies, procedures, and expectations for this coming season.  Even if you aren't certain on whether or not you will be swimming it is still highly encouraged for both athlete and parent to come to this meeting.

We will be going over our parent handbook in detail and then discuss any questions that anyone may have.  To find the parent handbook please go to the team website/blog at gswswim.blogspot.com  You will also see a blog post about this meeting.  The calendar is currently up to date until Winter Break.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me.

Apologies for such late notice.  I look forward to see you on  Thursday.
