Practice Schedule Changes for Winter Season & Holiday Season
Due to swim meet season, we will not have Sacred Heart weekday practices starting November 1 through the end of February. Our practices on Saturdays at Sacred Heart will remain on the schedule through the winter. In observance of the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, we will not have water polo practice on Wednesday, November 23 or any swim practices or artistic swimming practices from Thanksgiving Day (November 24) to Sunday, November 27. Our regular practice schedule resumes on Monday, November 28. Keep an eye on our e-mail newsletters and our practice schedule calendar for information on our practice schedule changes during the holiday season.
2023 National Governing Body Membership
As the end of the year quickly approaches, please remember to renew your national governing body memberships early! You will not be able to attend practice in the new year without a 2023 national governing body membership. Please keep in mind that our staff has to manually verify your USMS membership in the system so there is considerable processing time for the verification process. For more information about national governing body membership, visit the the following websites:
SAVE-THE-DATE: One Hour Swim on January 28, 2023
On Saturday, January 28, 2023, we will be hosting one of our annual winter fundraising event, the One Hour Swim (OHS) challenge. Every year, we raise money for non-profit organizations that support the LGBTQ+ community. Not only do we challenge ourselves to see how far we can swim in an hour, we also get pledges and donations for causes that matter. This year, we are partnering with the Alliance for Positive Change. 50% of the donations will support the Alliance for Positive Change, and the other 50% of donations will support TNYA’s scholarship programs.
We will provide more information on this winter’s fundraising drive soon!
