GRAND RAPIDS CHRISTIAN HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS
We have a busy week ahead so please make sure to take note of all of the details for this week!
First of all, we have a dual meet against Jenison tomorrow at 7PM. Please have the girls on deck by 5:30pm just like last week. It's nice to take advantage of Calvin not having practice during this time yet! There will be a meal following the meet afterwards in the same room as last week. I will be sending the lineup out most likely tomorrow.
Thursday morning we will NOT have morning lifting.
Saturday we have our Mid-Season Invitational! This year the meet will be held at Zeeland High School (3390 100th Ave. Zeeland, MI 49464) rather than the HAC. The meet begins at 11AM, so there will be a 2-way bus leaving the high school at 8:15am. There will be no meal following this meet as it is an invitational. Entries for this meet are due tomorrow night so I will have those sent out sometime this week. Please note that there also is a $5 fee for spectators.
I will send any other updates that I have later in the week. We're looking forward to some fun competition this week!
REMINDERS FOR THE REST OF THE WEEK:
TODAY: Jolyn Trunk Show from 3-7pm at The Nest at Grand Rapids Christian. 10% of sales go towards our team budget! + NORMAL PRACTICE TIME
FRIDAY: Normal practice times.
SATURDAY: 9AM at GRCHS, 10AM-12PM at Calvin
7PM - SWIMMER/DIVER + PARENT/FAMILY Get-together at the Vandermolen's (16 White Hilss Avenue NE Grand Rapids) ! RSVP to Kristin Vandermolen at 616-334-6716
In preparation for the week ahead, here are a few reminders.
First of all, we have a meet tomorrow against Northview High School at home! The meet begins at 7PM, so please have the girls arrive by 5:30PM. This is a little earlier than the last meet but we are going to take advantage of the fact that Calvin is not practicing yet and give ourselves a little bit of extra time on deck before we get in the water. There WILL be a meal after the meet (this, I am SURE of this time)
Second, we are having our Jolyn Trunk show this week Thursday, September 14 from 3-7pm at The Nest at The Quest Center. Once again, the only responsibility that the girls have is to spread the word as well as they can. They do NOT have to be there during the sale, but are allowed to come purchase things! Practice will be at the normal time.
Finally, the Vandermolens have graciously offered up their home to host a swimmer/diver + family gathering this Saturday, September 16 at 7pm. If you are planning on going, please RSVP to Kristin Vandermolen at : 616-334-6716 with the number of people you will be bringing. Their address is 16 White Hills Avenue NE Grand Rapids.
Looking forward to a great week! I will be sending the line-up for tomorrow as soon as it is finalized.
Here are reminders for Week 5 of our season:
The first thing I would like to mention is a reminder about attendance at practice. I know that we all have busy schedules and adding the amount of work that the girls put in in the pool and weight room can certainly make them exhausted. However, in the past few weeks it seems like most of our practices have been at 90% attendance at best, which is difficult for us as coaches. Please remember to let us know at least one week in advance if they need to miss practice for any reason. These reasons may include school functions, family emergencies, illness/injury. These reasons exclude; feeling tired/fatigued or them telling you they need to stay home from practice. At this point in the season, we want to stress the importance of being at as many practices as possible. We completely understand that illnesses have been spreading, family and school things come up, and these are all very acceptable reasons to be missing practice. As coaches, we would appreciate as high attendance as possible so we can be as productive as possible at each practice.
Second, we've had a lot of additions / subtractions to the team since the beginning, so I apologize if there have been some holes in your communication from me. If you are NOT receiving text message updates, I would HIGHLY recommend signing up for them (Text "Follow @ladyeaglesaqua" to 40404). This way, you can get an immediate update right to your phone. This is extremely helpful if any last minute schedule changes happen. I would also recommend liking our page on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/ladyeaglesaqua) if you are interested in sharing things with other parents or swimmers on the team.
Finally, your girls may have told you, but we have another fundraising opportunity for our team! A rep from Jolyn (jolynclothing.com/) reached out to me to see if we could host a trunk show for them (they bring in their products and sell them, we host and we get 10% of the sales back to our team!) This is a super great opportunity to get a little bit of extra money in our team fund! Information on the event can be found below. Spread the word any way you know how!
We are looking forward to another good week!
