Don't feel like cooking today?!

Mellow Mushroom has graciously offered to show their support for our Killer Whales, and all we have to do is eat!

Today, Tuesday, July 24th, for lunch and dinner, if you (and your friends/guests/neighbors/random stranglers) tell the server you are there to support the Kitts Creek Swim Club, KCSC will get a portion of the proceeds. A great and easy way to show your support for our neighborhood team!!

A Few Tips...

Our first meet is behind us, and what a great experience it was!  As we were cleaning things up last week, we came across a few items that were left behind.  Please make sure you label everything you bring with you to meets, so we will know in the future if we need to bring it home with us or not.  We also had a few people asking about ideas for good snacks during swim meets.  Here are a few helpful sites we found: 




One last thing: be sure to manage your valuables, we'll have a lot of people walking around!

Practice Update: Good News, Bad News!

The bad news is that practices have been cancelled for this evening and will resume Saturday morning. The GREAT news is that Goodberry's at Davis Dr and High House has offered to host us for a fundraising team spirit night from 6:30-8:30 TONIGHT! Since we don't have practice, we might as well have fun, learn some cheers, and still get to hang out with our awesome neighbors. Make sure to tell them you are with Kitts Creek Swim Club...and feel free to bring friends!! Hope to see you there; Coach Anndria is excited to see everyone!

It's Swim Assessment Time!!

Reminder on Tuesday (5/22) evening from 5:30-7:30pm please bring any swimmers 8 year old and younger to the pool for the swim assessment. The swim assessment will help the Coach evaluate the swimmer's comfort in the water. As a TSA exhibition team, we will be adhering to the guidelines that require 7 and 8 year olds to swim the full length of the pool independently. Children who are unable to meet this requirement, at the start of the season, will practice with the transition team until they are able to do so.

We are aware that there is a chance for thunderstorms. We will adhere to the general water safety guidelines, if we hear thunder we will exit the pool for at least 30 mins. We will update the blogs/web site if we need to postpone. The current rain date is set for Thursday, May 24th from 5:30-7:30 pm.

Looking forward to seeing you out there!

Swim Team 2012! Calling all volunteers and advertisers!

While we haven't had much winter to speak of, it's time to start talking swim team! 

We had a great first season and are ready to take it to the next level.

To get there, your Swim Team needs volunteers! Specifically, a TSA Rep, Volunteer Coordinator, Stroke and Turn Judges, Starters and Place Judges. Be the first to email so you get the volunteer position you really want (concession stand duty?). Please email kittscreekswimclub@gmail.com with the position you are interested in.

This swim season will feature meets with other clubs.  This will bring not only your neighbors to the pool but families from the other clubs.  Are you a local business looking to get the word out?  The Swim Team will be offering advertising opportunities such as inclusion of your business name on the swim team t-shirt and a banner at the pool.  Interested?  Email kittscreekswimclub@gmail.com for more details.

Details for registering your swimmers for the 2012 season will be posted here as the season gets closer.
