Congrats on an outstanding meet this past weekend! It was another long one, but we are happy with the swimmers' performances - and hope they are too!
I have attached the final Silver entry to this email. It will go out first thing Thursday morning and it will be final at that time. If you see an error or have any questions please let me know by tomorrow. Please note Swimmers can only compete in up to 12 events at Silvers (2 Friday, 5 Saturday and 5 Sunday). If your swimmer qualified for 6 events on one day I left them out of the event they have either swum most recently or are the farthest to qualifying for JO's in. I will discuss with those who have two events on Friday whether they wish to swim both, or skip one, on an individual basis. If we need to scratch an event, we can address it and scratch that event when we get to the meet.
Please note that there is no practice listed for Blue team tomorrow (Wednesday 2/12) because the Aquatic Center will be closing early. However, I would like to run a flip turns / open turns practice from 6:45 pm - 7:20 pm for 10& Unders and 7:20 pm - 7:55 pm for 11-12's on Wednesday night (2/12) at Stewart Ave. I hope your swimmer can make it!
I know the practice schedule for next week is still up in the air on the website. We are working on it and should have something out to you shortly. Thanks for your patience.
Here's to another great week!
Congrats on another great weekend of racing. I hope everyone made it home in time to catch most of the Superbowl! There's a lot to cover this week. Please read through and let me know if you have any questions.
I have attached an updated entry for the meet at YMiddies this weekend.
If your swimmer is no longer able to attend a session of the meet please let me know ASAP and I will scratch them when we get there. Warm up times have been adjusted as follows. If there are any other changes I will let you know before Friday.
YWCA of White Plains
515 North St.
White Plains, NY 10605

Please keep in mind there are no drylands and no practice this Friday because of the meet.
I have also attached a Draft of the Silver entry. Silvers will take place Friday February 28 - Sunday March 1 at Ward Melville High School. Swimmers can swim all events for which they qualify at Silvers (up to 12). If a swimmer has a JO cut in an event they cannot swim that event at silvers (they are too fast). Silvers is a Championship Meet so swimmers have been entered in all events for which they qualify and should plan to attend accordingly. Warm up times will be adjusted closer to the meet, however the breakdown of sessions is as follows:
Friday Events 1 - 8
Saturday & Sunday AM 10& Under, 13-14
Saturday and Sunday PM 11-12, 15-18
Please let me know if your child is entered and cannot attend Silvers.
Those of you with 8 & Unders please look for a separate email from me with information regarding 8 & Under champs. 8&Unders are not eligible for Bronze, so this will be their final championship meet of the short course season!
There was no host for Bronze South so we will be attending Bronze Central at Lehman College March 20 - 22. I do not have information on warm-up times or session times yet, however usually 9-10 and 11-12 are in separate sessions
Have a great week!
