All swimmers should either have their hair gelled or in tight braids pinned up into a bun.
Since it's been a while since our last gelling adventure, here's a helpful resource to refresh: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1fa-dwAQip5qSlDkPhCXoUL-cd08TS8gQYzK-jruPABc/edit?usp=sharing
**Please visit the store this week/weekend to make sure that you have all of the necessary supplies
Some of the swimmers have suggested gelling as a group to make the process go quicker-- awesome idea! They should plan to arrive at the pool with gelled hair DRY with headpiece in
All swimmers will need to have BLACK SUIT and WHITE CAP for Figures in the morning-- COSTUME SUITS for routines
Competition suit sizing will be done this week before practices on Wednesday and Friday:
Juniors: WEDNESDAY @ 4:45-5:45 at my house with Coach Hannah
12U/13-15: FRIDAY @ 3:30-4:15pm at my house
I have told the swimmers that they can wear whatever make-up they choose for the meet-- as long as they match their routine partner :)
No Goggles for Routines
Unless there is a medical excuse, all swimmers will be swimming routines without goggles-- we will start doing run-throughs without goggles this week, but not for the full practice.
Please ask your swimmer to ensure they have contact cases to store lenses in if they take them out, eye drops to minimize irritation and anything else that will prep them for success.
