First Day of Practice!

Great morning and crazy great weather for our first practice this morning!  So proud of the kids and no blue lips this morning, even the little ones had no tears.  What a good start to the season!

Couple of quick notes:

  • Swimmers will be moved both up and down in lanes until they master certain items.
  • Parents please let the coaches handle the kids during practice and see me (Amanda) with questions during practice.
  • Endurance is what we are working on the most this first week.  
  • Water fountain isn't currently installed like previous years.  Bring a water bottle for now.
  • Johnny Macs is our contact for suits, there is a discount at the store if you mention that you are part of the Wentzville Sea Dragons.  We recommend at minimum they have a good set of goggles, cap and team suit optional but highly recommended!

1st Week Of Practice & Stoke Judge Training

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 29th 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.

Reminder:  Stroke Judge Clinic
Stroke Judge training will be Wednesday May 23rd from 6-7:30pm at Middendorf-Kredell Library Branch given by Charlie Moore.  Certification is free and lasts for 3 years.  We need more stroke judges on our team and this is a great opportunity. 

First week of practice schedule from 7-8:30am is as follows:
New Swimmers 8 & Up:  Start Tuesday May 29th and are welcome everyday this week.
New Swimmers 7 & Under:  Start Tuesday May 29th 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 29th 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.
