Hello DE Scorpion Fans,
First I want to inform you that your swimmers had an outstanding performance this past weekend at the Eagle Invite. We had a majority of swimmers beat their personal best. The invite was full of smiles and proud moments. Both Coach Selby and I are extremely proud of the hard work and dedication that your swimmers have shown.
This week we do not have a Thursday meet scheduled. We do have the West Valley Invitational which is on Saturday October 7th at the YMCA in Goodyear AZ (2919 Litchfield Rd, Goodyear, AZ 85395). The first event begins at 9:00 AM. We will need to meet at the DE at 7:15 AM. ALL swimmers will need to ride with the team to the invite and back to DE once the invite is done. This is THE event where our DE Swim families can easily join us to cheer on our Scorpion Swimmers since it is near by. I have included a few more pieces of information for the West Valley Invite if you wish to join us:
Food: There will be a snack bar available for all athletes and spectators.
Spectator Admission: Spectators will be charge $5.00 for Adults, $3.00 18 & under, 3 & under are FREE. CASH ONLY PLEASE!!
Programs: Programs for the public will be sold for $5.00 each
Parking: Parking will be available at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church, which is located to the east of the YMCA. All spectators and buses must park at the church so YMCA members can park in the YMCA parking lot. Address is 13720 W Thomas Rd, Avondale, Az 85392
Swimmers should bring their own snacks for this event. I will be taking left over snacks, waters and Gatorade. If you wish to send something with us on the bus you can bring it when you drop off your swimmer that morning.
There is only one more month left of swim season which means crunch time. Practice during fall break will only be scheduled for swimmers that have met provisional time for State. I have spoken to those swimmers and they are aware about it. I’m hoping your swimmer mentioned it to you, if not please contact me. I will inform them later this week of practice times for Fall break.
Again, thank you to all the families that have helped out with snacks, water, Gatorade, and moral support.
After fall break we have one more meet vs Centennial on October 19 and then our last invite will be October 28th which is the San Tan Invitational. I will be sending information once we get closer to the date.
If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me.
