Morning Practice for Session 3 Only

Starting June 8th, Coach Jaron will be having practice for Session 3 swimmers ONLY from 8:00-9:15 am.

Also, the pool will be open to the public.  You will have to enter through the main gate not the side gate as we are used to.  If you are bringing siblings who are not practicing for Lakers and you plan on swimming with the general public, you will need to pay to get in or purchase a family pass.

or 

You will need to tell the workers at the gate that you are coming to Laker  practice and they will let you in for free, but if you or your children plan on swimming after practice, you will need to pay the entry fee.

Also, the coaches would rather your swimmer refrain from swimming  before practice so they will have enough energy to sustain them through practice. 

 

 

 

 
  
 
Pre-Lakers ending soon

June 4th will be the last day for Pre-Lakers practice.  Coaches will be giving the swimmers an opportunity to swim 25 yards unassisted. ...   more

 
  
 
ATTENTION PARENTS:

WE WILL HAVE PRACTICE ON FRIDAY, MAY 22 ALL SESSIONS

EXCEPT LANE 1       PRE-LAKERS (SESSION 1) 

 

WE STILL NEED EACH FAMILY TO BRING A CASE OF WATER BOTTLES OR POWERADE TO HELP STOCK OUR CONCESSION STAND FOR HOME MEETS.  MAKE SURE TO NOTIFY A BOARD MEMBER SO WE CAN CHECK YOUR FAMILY OFF THE LIST!

ALSO WE HAVE RESCHEDULED PICTURE DAY FOR MAY 28TH

INDIVIDUAL PICTURES WILL START AT 4:30PM.

TEAM GROUP PHOTO WILL BE AT 5:30PM.  PLEASE WEAR TEAM SUIT!

 

*************************

PARENTS:  IT IS IMPORTANT FOR YOU TO REGISTER YOUR SWIMMER BY TUESDAY AT MIDNIGHT.  IF YOU DO NOT GET REGISTERED IN TIME, YOU WILL NEED TO PAY A LATE REGISTRATION FEE OF $25 PER FAMILY TO GET YOUR ACCOUNT UNLOCKED TO REGISTER YOUR SWIMMER.  CONTACT NIKKI TO TAKE CARE OF THIS MATTER.

(nsurley@huntsville-isd.org)

Please note:  if you sign up late, your swimmer may not be on a relay.

Also it is important to sign up on time because there are a lot of behind the scenes actions that take place in order to make the heat sheets for each meet. Delaying registration puts everyone behind schedule and there are deadlines that must be met!  Please help us out by registering your swimmer by Tuesday, midnight of each week.

Thank you,

Laker Board

Great job today Lakers


Great job at our first meet of the season,  Lakers!  We had some excellent swims this morning!  I was especially proud of how you supported each other by cheering on deck.  You Lakers showed some class today by staying in the water until your event was completed.  Nice job.
Please remember to always stop by and see the coaches after your race.  I know many of you did that, but we want ALL swimmers to stop by so we can give you some feedback after your races.  Good or bad, we do want to talk to you!!! 
Hopefully the weather will cooperate and we will get some practices in this week.  We will begin morning practices with Coach Jaron after school gets out in June. 
Again, great job this morning.  I am proud of our Lakers!
 
Coach Matt
 

 
  
 
Getting ready for the first meet-How do I prepare

As the days get closer to the first meet of the season, I wanted to let everyone know what to expect.  First, you should pack everything you need the night before.  Navasota is approximately an 1.5 hour  away and swimmers need to be checked in by 7:15 AM . This means departure from Huntsville is early!  Please make sure you arrive on time.  Failure to attend warm ups and check in could result in being scratched from the meet.   Once you get here and are ready to set up, you can choose your set up location-the park or the parking lot (not on the pool deck).  Normally it is very nice at Navasota because the pool is located next to a beautiful park,  but with all the rain you may need to bring a tarp to lay on the ground to keep the chairs from sinking into the mud.  If this doesn't work you could also set up across the street in the school parking lot. Once you have set up and the kids are finished warming up, you will need to let them know what events they are swimming. They probably won't have a master heat sheet to use, so you will need to purchase one ($3-5).  After the swimmers know what events they are swimming they will probably want to eat.  Please make sure they don't eat to heavily before their events.  I know this is hard because Navasota usually has a nice concession stand with donuts and breakfast tacos.  Remember if they eat to many sweets they could get sick.  If this is a concern for you, please feel free to bring your own food and snacks.  Most importantly for away meets is to watch your swimmer and listen for their events.  They need to be ON TIME to the ready bench and not running to the blocks before their race starts.   I am attaching a list of items that may help you pack your swimmer for this weekend.  Happy Swimming!

Nikki

 
  
 
Navasota Registration

Parents,

If you are having difficulty registering your swimmer because you have NT (no times), please be patient as I continue to enter their times.  The new system requires me to add each swimmer to each event in the "mock meet".  Since we had over 30 swimmers miss yesterday, it has taken more time than expected to enter the information.  So, if you did not swim time trials, your will most likely have to register tomorrow before 2 pm. I am sorry if this is inconvenient.   

Also, if you are having issues signing up to volunteer from your phone, you may want to try a tablet or computer.  Volunteers and registration will shut down Wed at 2 PM.

Nikki Surley

 
  
 
Time Trials Rescheduled

Time Trials have been rescheduled for tomorrow, Monday 5/11/15 (weather permitting).  Warm-ups will be held from 5:00-5:30 pm.  We will begin the meet as soon as possible after warm-ups.  Please have your swimmer at the pool at 5:00 pm ready to swim.  WE WILL NEED VOLUNTEER TIMERS AND READY BENCH HELPERS. 

Picture Day will be rescheduled and announced at a later date.

Thank you for your patience and flexibility. 

Be sure to like us on Facebook to receive updates quicker!

See you at the pool!

 
  
 
Upcoming Events

Don't forget Saturday is Time Trials.  Please sign up your swimmer online ASAP.

Your swimmer will need to be at the pool at 8 am for warm-ups.

If you can not make time trials, you will need to get with the coaches to get times recorded for you and put in the computer.  Swimmers must have times in order to swim at meets this season.  We will run the mock meet just as a normal meet. 

*** Each family is required to bring one case of Powerade or water bottles to help stock the concession stand for the season. Please start bringing them in next week.
