GRAND RAPIDS CHRISTIAN HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS
Due to having to work with two separate facility schedules, we had to make a few changes in regards to the practice schedule for this weekend.
Here is the official, finalized schedule:
Friday: 10:30AM at Grand Rapids Christian to lift, then we will shuttle over to Calvin to swim from 11:30AM-1:30PM.
NO PRACTICE SATURDAY
Monday: Lifting at GRCHS from 6-7PM (Calvin will be closed)
Tuesday: resume normal practice schedule
We are ready to get started with another week!
On the agenda this week is our first home meet of the season on Tuesday, August 30 against Unity Christian. This will be our first go at a dual meet this year so here are a few of the details:
Please have the girls on deck by 5:45PM, as warm-up will begin at 6PM and competition at 7PM. We will have a meal following the meet as a team (waiting on what room as we speak).
Also, If you are planning on getting a parent t-shirt, let Jacqui Elzinga know ASAP and bring money to the meet on Tuesday so she can place the order on Wednesday!
As we go into the holiday weekend, please be sure to let me know if you have a swimmer/diver that will not be at practice. Here is the practice schedule once again for the upcoming weekend:
Fri: morning workout time TBD since there is no school, evening workout 6PM-7:30PM
Sat: No practice
Mon: No morning workout, evening workout: 6PM-8PM
Please let me know if you have any questions about the meet tomorrow. I will be happy to answer them. I will also be sending out a lineup sometime tomorrow afternoon.
Here are the details for our meet at Northview tomorrow:
Divers: leaving school at 11:15AM with Mrs. Busscher, warm-up begins at 12:00PM, competition begins at 1:30PM.
Swimmers: leaving school AT 3:00PM on a bus which will be in the Shawnee Church parking lot. Please be sure to bring all of the things that you need for the meet with you to school! Warm-up begins at 3:30PM and competition begins at 5:00PM.
There is no bus returning from Northview, so please make sure that your athlete has a way to get home in the evening. There also is no meal provided for athletes after the meet.
Order of events:
200 Medley Relay
200 Freestyle Relay
Let's go Lady Eagles!
A few more details for this week:
We ordered team suits for competition this morning so hopefully we will get them by our first meet next week Thursday! (We got a great discount on them, they were originally 89 and we got them for 63) The girls also ordered the team t-shirts and sweatshirts so we will be collecting money for all three of those things ASAP as well as money for the team social fund. This covers the cost of snacks, social events, etc. throughout the course of the season and is put towards team functions only! Please make the checks out to Grand Rapids Christian High School and bring them ASAP!
No one will be allowed to take their gear/suit until their check is turned in.
Here are the costs:
Team fund: $25.00
Thanks everyone! Please let me know if you have any questions/concerns!
Also, reminder for our first team picture session (of 2) tonight at 6PM! We will be wearing jeans and our warm up jackets.
ATTENTION: The chlorinator at Calvin is broken and still getting repaired so we are unable to get in the pool there tonight. Stay tuned for alternate practice location!
Happy Friday! Just a few quick reminders:
1. Parent meeting tonight at 6:15pm at Calvin. Let's plan on meeting in the room by the hoogenboom gym, next to the TV by the couches etc. It should be open... If not we will make a game time decision.
2. Practice will be the full 2 hours, from 6-8 tonight because football hasn't started yet.
3. Practice on Saturday morning: 8am-9:30am at GRCHS in the weight room!
