Kigoos Updates – July 2nd

July 2nd, 2014 | Posted by kigooswm in Notifier

Great turnout for the parade yesterday.  If you haven’t checked out the photos yet – there are several posted to our Facebook page.


Now for news and updates:


1)  JD’s – HERE is a link to the program for today’s JD Meet in Ladner.  There will be no hard copies available so please save or print this for your records.  Also with JD’s today is the final day to sign-up for the Crescent Beach B Meet on July 16th.  It is a the largest JD Meet of the year, and a wonderful chance for JD swimmers to try different strokes since there are more events offered.


2)  WATER POLO –  A reminder that today there is a Water Polo skills session with Coach Andre from 4:30 – 5:30 today for any interested Junior and Intermediate swimmers.


3)  HOOTENANNY – As you plan for the weekend please note both days will likely go quite late.  It is the largest meet of the season and the first heats do not start until 9:30 AM.  If swimmers make finals, these events could be in the early evening


4)  SURVEY THANK YOU – Thanks to all the parents who completed the Kigoos Mid-Season Survey.  We heard from about 60% of our families.  We got some very useful feedback.  It was also great to know that about 95% of our families Agree or Strongly Agree that they are having a positive experience with Kigoos this season.


4)  PUB NIGHT – With Canada Day now finished, we turn our attention to our next big social event – Pub Night / Buddy Breakaway next Thursday night.   Below is the general information.  Please note in an earlier Notifier we had the wrong email address to sign up with your baked goods – if you have already emailed Janice Kostiuk – please email her again at:
