First Week

A great first week back in the pool! It was great to see many faces back at all the practices. If you missed practice, plan to come out this week (Wednesday onwards!)…A polite reminder that Mon/Tue practices are cancelled this week due to the Holidays! Please be sure to check the schedule below.

Saturday and Sunday mornings:

Please meet at the side door of the JCC (beside the school/playground at the back) at 6:50am. Practice finishes up at 8am – but if you’d like extra drill/skills we have a few extra minutes. It would be great to have all swimmers finished up/dressed by 8:30am. We can exit by the front doors. Sundays meet up at the side door by 6:35am;  again – you can leave by the front doors after practice.

Carleton University Pool 

Making headlines in Ottawa these past few weeks is the need for newer/better pool facilities in Ottawa. Carleton University (separate from the City) is also in need of an upgrade. I have been approached to write a letter of support; if you would like to write an assenting letter, I can forward you the contact info. The more the merrier! Letters must be sent in by October 15th.

Willy Lee Meet

There will be a meeting coming up for the organizers of the Willy Lee Meet (Sat Nov 16) – if you are interested in helping out in any capacity, please contact me. I am hoping you are planning out your events – some familiar and some that would challenge you. If you haven’t raced in awhile its the perfect place and time to do it!


Marie and all your coaches
