No spring swim tonight and a few other items

Good morning,

Due to the inclement weather and school being canceled, the pool is closed all day and we will NOT have spring swim practice today, Wednesday April 3rd. We will look to see if we can offer a make up session on a Friday in the next few weeks. I will email that out if/when we are able to make those arrangements.

Thank you for a great first few days of swim camp! Your swimmers did a great job of following directions and listening to our coaching staff! 

PLEASE make sure your swimmer has a good pair of goggles. It is very difficult for swimmers to work on what we are asking them to do, and work on proper breathing techniques if they do not have a good pair of goggles that fit them correctly. We do not have goggles for them to borrow or use if they forget them, break, or do not have them. 

If you are not sure where to get good goggles, I would highly recommend going to Simply Swimming in Middleton. They will actually fit your swimmer with goggles that fit their face/eyes correctly. Make sure you bring your swimmer with you. It is definitely worth the drive. Simply swimming will also be here on April 17th from 4:30-6:30pm for our suit/apparel fittings, and will have goggles here as well that day. Unfortunately, sometimes goggle straps break, so if you have an extra pair to send with your swimmer, that is a great idea! (Also not a bad idea to buy more than one pair for that reason as well)

Many people have asked about purchasing a team suit. We offer a team swim suit every year, but do NOT require swimmers to purchase one. They do NOT need a team suit to compete. They can wear any swimsuit to compete and/or practice. 

If you are undecided about joining the team and/or purchasing a team suit, I would recommend at least coming to the fitting to try one on and get sized. You have until May 5th to order them. If you are not able to make the suit fitting in town, you can go directly to Simply Swimming in Middleton anytime during their normal store hours and they can fit you for the suit there as well. Be sure to tell them you are with the Sauk Prairie Pool Sharks, so they fit you for the correct suit. 

Lastly, many have asked about the deadline to register for our summer swim season. We officially start our summer season on Tuesday, May 28th. We keep our registration link open through June, so you can sign up anytime before that. The earlier you know and register the better, because then you will be put on our summer email list and will get all the information you will need for summer swim through that. 

I think that is all for now... Thanks again for great first days from each spring session! Feel free to reach out with any questions at anytime, but please know that I have a full time job, and may not be able to respond right away during the day, but will respond to you as soon as I am able. 

Have a great rest of the day, and see you at the pool!
