CLEVELAND INVITE THIS WEEKEND
Our team dinner is Friday the 13th (spoooooooky). It'll be hosted by the Doyle family, and their address is 8104 Morris Rippel Pl. Ne 87122. Again, please practice common courtesy (that was a double alliteration!).
We will be taking a bus as a team to Rio Rancho Aquatic Center. The bus will leave from the parking lot off of Alameda, near the soccer and football fields. I don't remember what lot that is, but it's the northern side of campus just east of Wyoming. The bus will arrive at La Cueva at 7:00 AM, and leave PROMPTLY at 7:15 AM. This means EVERYONE should be ready to go in that parking lot by NO LATER THAN 7:00 AM. The bus WILL leave without you if your'e not there, and that's a logistical nightmare for everyone involved. So please don't be late.
*Bring snacks (it will again be a long day) and a warm sweatshirt (water tends to be cold at this pool).
Parents, you're welcome to drive out to support. The address for the complex is 745 Loma Colorado Blvd. Rio Rancho 87124. APS schedule has the meet from 10:00am - 2:00pm. Deck space is limited, plan to bring chairs.
TEAM PHOTOS - Tuesday December 17th
Lastly, we will be having team photos on Tuesday, December 17th. That's next Tuesday! We'll be taking them at La Cueva at 3 PM. Please don't be late to that either. Wear your blue team shirts!!!
If you haven't already signed up for our Remind group chat, send a text message to the phone number 81010 with the message @lcswimd.
Swim practices always run 4:30-6:00pm this season unless otherwise stated. We'll have practice Monday - Friday every day, except for Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. Parents, please be outside and ready to pick your kids up by the time we're out of practice.
All athletes must have a completed physical and form in order to tryout.
All athletes must have completed Life of an Athlete in order to tryout.
Link to additional APS forms, such as code on conduct:
Practice is at Highland pool from 4:15-5:30, you will need to be there no later than 4:00 pm so we can start at 4:15pm sharp. Club swimmers need to be at practice on Tuesdays and Fridays.
APS dive practice will also start on October 28th, 2019. The tentative schedule will be:
All swimmers need to bring their blue slips and concussion management forms on their first day. DO NOT bring the physicals. Physicals must be turned into the trainer at LCHS who will give you the blue slip. Without the blue slip, you cannot tryout.
If you are in a fall sport, you may not tryout until the end of your fall sport. Please send an email to Lacuevaswimanddive@gmail.com and let me know about your special circumstance. If you turned in your blue slip to that fall sport, please let me know what sport so that I can look it up.
BOYS TAKE STATE! Congratulations to our Boys team for working hard all season to WIN the state title for the first time in 22 years!
GIRLS TAKE HOME 2ND! Our girls team fought until the end and never gave up but came up just short of the blue trophy. We are proud of every athlete on this team, and we cannot compete without each of you!
