The swim and dive season is quickly approaching, and it is time to get our plans in order. I am eager to see you again, and I am excited about getting new divers on our teams. I welcome athletes of any skill level, including beginners. My expectation for all divers is that you will demonstrate progress in your skills every day.
Pre-season camp details for all divers: Littleton High School pool (enter from the south POOL door)
October 25 - November 12 M/W/F (3 times per week) 4-6pm Cost: $45/week. Pay weekly in advance and payable by Venmo/check/cash to Katherine Andrie You must be registered and cleared for the swim/dive team by your school's athletics department before participating in the pre-season camp. Wear a one-piece, athletic style suit and face mask. Recommended: towel, chamois, yoga mat and your courage! Please email me with your intentions on attending these pre-season camp sessions, so that I know whether to reserve space for you.
Regular season practice schedule for your team: Begins November 15 Littleton Lions will practice 4-6pm M-F at Littleton HS Highlands Ranch, ThunderRidge, Rock Canyon and Mountain Vista will practice 6-8pm, M-F at Littleton HS You must be registered and cleared by your school's athletics department before you can participate in any regular season practices.
There will be weekly announcements on Mondays about shifts in schedule to accommodate swimming and diving meets and to plan for upcoming meets. Please consider carpooling with other divers and parents from your school and/or other schools in your area.
Check your school's Swim/Dive team website for meet schedules and put all the important dates into your calendar. During many of your school's swim/dive meets, divers will participate in event #5 - diving. Some of your swim meets will not compete the diving event due to time or pool restrictions. Therefore, several "diving only" invites will be added to your calendar to give you more opportunities to compete for your school and to qualify for the big meets. I will announce these invites as they are added and when our regular season begins. Also, start planning now to shift work schedules and set aside time for homework. You will be expected to maintain eligibility as defined by your school.
I look forward to getting us back into the dive well. This is going to be a super fun season!
