Some updates regarding the Kigoos Icebreaker Swim Meet happening on June 7th and 8th:


  • Although the sign up date has passed, you are still able to register in the swim meet. Since it is our meet, I have spoken to Danna and we are able to make exceptions on late entries. This will not be the case for any other meets, so please do pay attention to the other meet sign up deadlines. If you would still like to be registered in our meet, please email myself ( or Danna at I will be away from Friday the 30th until the evening of Sunday June 1st, so if you are emailing on or after Friday please direct your message to Danna instead of myself.
  • Since the past three weeks of our practices have been spent developing freestyle, backstroke, and breastroke skills, all of the Junior B swimmers should be capable of swimming those three strokes in the swim meet. This means that I will enter all swimmers (of those who are registered in the meet) in 50 freestyle, 50 backstroke, and 50 breastroke. Of course this is dependant on which days the swimmer will be attending the meet (ex: attending only Saturday, only Sunday, or both days), but if they will be around for any of those events then they will be registered in them. These races are only two lengths each and I am confident that each and every swimmer will be able to do them. We have been working on starts and turns as well as some sprinting, and we will continue to work on these aspects as we progress into next week to prepare for this upcoming swim meet. However, if there are any issues with those three events, please come talk to me tomorrow (Thursday) before or after practice, or feel free to send me an email. Please keep in mind that as of the morning of Friday the 30th I will be away and unable to answer or attend to your email, so if you are emailing on or after Friday please direct your messages to
  • There are three more events in the swim meet that the Junior Bs would be eligible to swim, and these three events are 100 freestyle, 50 butterfly, and 100 IM. Any of these events are optional, but if your swimmer(s) would be interested in swimming any, or multiple, of these events please let me know and the request will be gladly accommodated. Once again, I am available to speak to tomorrow (Thursday) on deck and can be reached by email tonight and all of tomorrow, but as of Friday the 30th please send your emails to Danna as I will be unable to answer.


Thank you, and I’m looking forward to the first swim meet of our season!
