See you at 7:00AM tomorrow!
This week's details:
Tuesday: AT NORTHVIEW: The schedule online says a 6:30PM start time but it is actually 6:00PM start time.
There is a one-way bus leaving again from the Shawnee side of GRCHS, leaving at 4:45PM.
Please remember that this means that your swimmer/diver will need to have a ride back from Northview after the meet.
Saturday we have our D3 Invitational, hosted by Holland Christian and to be held at Holland Aquatic Center. We will have a two-waybus leaving from GRCHS at 9:00AM and the meet begins at 12:00PM. Swimming and diving will be run simultaneously following the completion of the 200 Medley relay in order to make the most of our time.
Teams attending: Calvin Christian, Chelsea, Detroit Country Day, Catholic Central, GRC, Hamilton, Holland Christian, Manistee, Milan, Otsego, South Haven, Spring Lake
Please let me know if you have any questions before then! I will hopefully get both of the lineups for both meets sent out tomorrow.
Here are the details for this week! :
Tuesday, September 13 at East Grand Rapids. (TRI with Manistee). Meet starts at 6:00PM at EGR.
Please have your swimmer at EGR by 4:45PM, for a 5:00PM warm-up time. There will be no bus to or from the pool.
The meet will be scored as a double dual and the meet lineup will be sent out tomorrow afternoon.
Thursday: Tri at East Kentwood (with Byron Center). Meet at 6:00PM. Please have your swimmers on deck by 4:45PM for a 5:00PM warm-up time.
There will be no bus to or from the pool and this meet will also be scored as a double dual.
Also, please note: Mitch is getting married this week Saturday (!!!) and the rehearsal dinner is on Thursday evening, so Coaches Becca and Alex will be in charge at the meet on Thursday!
Friday: Team photos, be on deck by 5:45PM so we can take our photo and get going quickly. I will give the girls the proper paperwork to order team photos and individual shots if you desire.
Just a few updates before we go into the weekend....
1. Our dual meet against Byron Center (scheduled for Thursday, 10/20) has been CANCELLED. They will be at our Tri-meet next week Thursday with East Kentwood, which will be scored as a double dual anyways so please adjust your schedule accordingly.
2. We will be having a team picture and individual shots taken for buttons taken next week Friday, 9/16. I will send the girls home with the appropriate paper work if you would like to order photos/buttons.
3. There is a top-times spreadsheet on under the "times" tab so you can see the top individual and relay times as we go throughout our season.
Just a reminder that the bus for W. MI relays is one-way and leaves tomorrow morning at 8:00AM for Zeeland. Please be aware that I had to update the line-up just a bit so some people got shuffled around just a bit. I will get the updated version out if I am able to before tomorrow.
Here are a few reminders as we go into the next few days...
There are quite a few details for the week ahead to be sure to read everything thoroughly.
Thursday, 9/8: double dual between Holland Christian and Jenison. The meet is at Holland Aquatic Center at 6:30PM. There will be a two-way bus from GRCHS leaving promptly at4:15PM from behind the high school by Shawnee CRC.
Saturday, 9/10: West Michigan Relays. This year the meet will be held at Zeeland High School. Divers will be having their competition on Friday and have their rides arranged with Michelle Busscher. Swimmer's competition is on Saturday and begins at 10:30AM. There is a one-way bus leaving from behind the high school at 8:00AM on Saturday morning. Please be sure that your swimmer has a way to get home on Saturday as there will be no bus home. After the meet on Saturday afternoon, the Haaksma family has invited all parents and their swimmers/divers to their home for a post-meet party. Swimmers/divers received a handout at practice with all of the details.
