First Week of Practice, Team Shirts, Inclement Weather

Just like the first week of school, the first week of practices can be a little chaotic.  Coaches will be evaluating swimmers and determining what lane each swimmer belongs in.    Please give the coaches some space this coming week to do their jobs.  Swimmers will be moved all summer long as swimmers perfect strokes and gain endurance.  Practice starts Tuesday after Memorial Day, May 30th from 7-8:30am.  Swimmers:  please stay out of the pool until coaches are through with dry land warm-ups and instruct you to get into the pool.

First week of practice schedule is as follows:
New Swimmers 8 & Up:  Start Tuesday May 30th and are welcome everyday this week.
New Swimmers 7 & Under:  Start Tuesday May 30th and will practice Thursday & Friday
Returning Swimmers:  Please return to the lane you ended last season.  I do have records if needed.
Returning Blue Dragons (Coach Megan & Brandon):  Start Tuesday May 30th and will practice Thursday & Friday.

Inclement Weather Policy NEW APP:  
Practices will be held in light rain.  If the weather is severe, there will be no practice.  If the weather is threatening, please do not drop off swimmers as there is no indoor facilities available.  We are using a new App this year.  Please use one of the following avenues to find out the status of practice or meets.
PHONE  (636) 322-6020 ext 19
APP for iOS and Android users; search "Rainout Line" and find Wentzville Parks and Recreation, Sea Dragons

T-Shirts & Online Orders: Past Year Shirts Blowout $5 while supplies last!!    2017 Team Shirts will be sold at practices once the bulk order comes in for $15 each ($17 for 2XL).  If you would like something besides the lime drifit, please use the online ordering.  Online Ordering will end on June 2nd in hopes to have them by our first meet on June 10th.  Click for link to Online Ordering

Photos from Meets 2016-Chair Person Needed 2017

We are so blessed to have families that are willing to take pictures of our kids while we are putting on a meet.  Here are few links to see all those moments during meets.  Thanks Blanca Parciak & Dan Tripp for your gift of photos.

For 2017, we are in need of a Photography Chair.   This position could be split between 2 or 3 families.  This position includes taking photos at meets for both races and behind the scenes in the bullpen.  I'd like to upload them to the Sea Dragon facebook page this year instead of stand alone websites.  Creating a slideshow for the year end banquet is also included in this position.
