Excitement all around in Week 3. Buffalo Wild Wings Fundraiser and the Northstar Invite in the same week.
The Wild Wings logo on the right side is what you need for us to receive credit for the swim team. We plan on going over there as a team after practice.
The Northstar Invite has not been run since 1991. It was a staple meet for both the Women’s and Men’s program here for many of year. In fact, Coach Kyle swam in this meet during his HS career. Now that we have the new timing system, new scoreboard, and new lane lines, the next step was to bring back a high quality meet to the North Aquatic Center.
Now we are doing it. The teams are all from Waukesha County and are teams that we do not see on a regular basis during the girls season. Two of the teams are ranked in the top 10 of local teams in the recent Journal Sentinel poll. It should be an exciting night of swimming.
This is also our last week of everyone practicing together as a entire group on a daily basis. There will be times here and there where circumstances require us to all be together though.
Here is the weekly schedule:
Monday – Divers will go from 3PM to 4:30. Swimmers from 4:30 to 6:30PM. Then to Buffalo Wild Wings. We will break into a general freestyle group and a stroke group for the main sets.
Tuesday – Divers will go from 3:30 to 5:30PM. Dry Land from 4:15 to 5:15. Swimming from 5:30 to 8:00PM. We will be doing some shorter stuff but at a higher intensity level.
Wednesday – Divers are going from 1PM to 3PM. Then it is the Northstar Invite! Please be to the pool by 4 PM. Warm Up start at 4:45. Those not swimming can arrive at 5:30 to support the team. Please be reminded that after the meet, everyone swims down, and then we are taking the lane lines out and putting the old ones back in.
Thursday – Divers will go from 3:30 to 5:30PM. No Dry Land. Coach Cam has a conflict. Swimming from 5:30 to 8:00PM. We will do a little more yardage. Please be prepared.
Friday – Divers will go from 3PM to 4:15. It is PICTURE DAY at 4:30PM. Once team pictures are done we will start swim practice. And do not forget that it is Kick Set Friday featuring one of Coach Elle or Coach Sarah’s favorite kick sets.
Saturday – Off. Everyone wants to get a start to the last weekend before school starts. However, we will swim on Monday from 6 to 8PM just so we can get back into the swing of things.
