Hello June!

And here we are, already June!

The opening couple of weeks were pretty. Darn. Good.

The shift to the early swim team practice is working out better than anticipated and as of today we now have 180 kids signed up! That’s 16 more than last year, and there are over 30 new kids on the team too!
The swim team committee wanted me to remind those that have been trying out swim team that at this time all swimmers attending swim practice must be registered in Team Unify. Any questions? Email: swimteam@wwpool.org
So the big thing that’s happening this week is that Early Morning Lap Swim is starting up. It begins on Monday morning, June 4th, and will run weekdays, 6-7:30am. While this swim has never really been crowded by say, Meadowbrook standards, the extra time will hopefully allow those partaking to have a more enjoyable experience. One thing that can help to better ensure this is if everyone swimming during this time is aware of some pretty common lap lane etiquette.

The basics – Figure out what your speed is relative to the others swimming in your lane. If you are are moving faster than the other swimmers, move into the faster lanes, and if you are going slower than others in your lane, move into a slower lane.

I would suggest circle swimming all of the time as well. We did have a collision last year during EMLS, and if possible, I’d certainly like to avoid this from happening again.

Something to note is that will soon be “labeling”  all of the lanes. We’ve got more signs ordered, so in the very near future all lanes will have a speed designation.

I know that old habits can be hard to break, and some of you have been swimming  in your own lane now for decades. While we’ll try to work the best we can with making accommodations, for the enjoyment and safety of everyone swimming we ask that our lap swimmers adhere to the aforementioned.  Thank you!
See you at the pool, but probably not at 6am…
