Also do not forget about our Swim-A-Thon that is happening January 15! Our team goal is $1,500.00 raised. Donors can either pledge a certain amount of money per lengths swam or make a flat donation in support. If donors want to write a check they can make the check payable to Grandville Community Ed.
We also decided that if parents would like to swim they will be able to swim 7:00pm-8:00pm the night of the swim-a-thon. If you are interested in swimming it will be a flat donation of at least $40. We are also able to get times done if you need them for triathlons.
Be sure to grab a donation envelope from in the stands!
Any questions email Coach Bri

10 & under swimmers need to be to the pool by 7:45am. The meet will begin at 9:00am. They will be sitting in the gym. This gym has a tendency to be cold so be sure they dress warm. Also a good suggest is to bring a lawn chair so they have somewhere to sit.
11 & up swimmers will be on the pool deck by 11:45. Their meet begins at 1:00pm. They will be sitting on the pool deck.

Our Swim-A-Thon will involve all swimmers who are able to attend and will be held on January 15 during all practice times. To make things a little more interesting we will be having a wager between age groups (8 and under, 9&10, 11&up). The age group that collects the most money will get a prize!
So over the holiday season start spreading the word to family, friends, business colleagues, social contacts and those that support the sport of swimming in our community. Envelopes for donations are available on the Age Group bulletin board outside of the pool stands these will be due the day of the Swim-A-Thon.
Any questions email Coach Bri
If you have not checked the folders in the stands yet there are ribbons and pictures in them, so be sure to pick them up!

Please remember that there are no parents allowed on the pool deck! The meet will begin at 9am and swimmers are free to leave when they are finished with all their events.
Swimmers need to bring with them: Towel, goggles, swim cap, suit. Also a good option to bring: a healthy snack, something to keep them busy that they are also not worried about getting wet, an extra towel, and a folding chair so they don't have to sit on the ground.
Just a reminder that swimmers 11 & up are no longer allowed to write their numbers on their hands. They can however bring a piece of paper to write it on and keep with them.
Please remind swimmers to be sure to pick up their area when it is time to go. Grandville has a great reputation of keeping their areas clean at away meets and we would love to keep this going!
Also on the website are sign-ups for the Zeeland Invitational (December 19), this is an optional meet. Entries are due by December 11.

What a great first couple weeks! For those that did not attend the parent meeting please be sure to check out the new bulletin board across from the pool with any information that you may have missed. Also as the season has began to start if your child is ever missing something when they come home from practice be sure to have them come check with me the next day they come in, I am starting to get a nice selection of things that I have found after practice. That being said please be sure to write your child's last name on everything (suit, cap, goggles, etc.) that way I can be sure to let you know if I have found it.
It is also that time of year to sign up for our first invitational! This meet is an optional meet at Kentwood Aquatic Center on December 5. The cost is $5.00 per event and swimmers are allowed up to 4 events. All you need to do is pick up a sign up form from the bulletin board or print it off from the website and turn it into a coach by November 30th.
Also on the website and on the bulletin board are the sign-ups for the Grandville Bulldog Classic that we host every year. This meet is held December 12. The cost is a flat $5.00 and swimmers may enter up to 4 events. These forms and money are due to a coach by December 4. We also still need parent volunteers for this meet, if you are interested and have not turned in your volunteer form please talk with Coach Bri.
