Elm Park Time Trial

Dear Elm Park Time Trial participants, parents, cheering squad and officials.  Please take note of the following important information.

  • Time trials are being held at Westminster Pool this Saturday August 3rd . All details are included in the following attachment.  Please take the time to read through the Swim Meet Package.
  • In addition, we invite every single one of you to please wear your PURPLE ELM gear to show your solidarity amongst all teams.  We still have T-Shirts (Adults sizes mostly $20) and bathing caps $13 for sale as needed.  We also invite you to SIT TOGETHER as a team, this includes kids who may not be participating but who are just as important contributors with cheering our ELM swimmers on. 
  • Those who can get to Time Trials early, please save as many seats together as possible.  We often manage to all fit on one bleacher.
  • To our 6 ELM officials, thank you for your time and dedication.  The dress code for you is white tops.
  • Lastly, Westminster Pool is a proud supporter of the “OnRock Community Services”, in memory of Mark Bray (a Westminster pool dad). They are asking our support towards a food drive they are having at the Time Trials event this year. They would greatly appreciate if families could bring a food donation for their annual food drive such as: cereal, pasta sauce, canned meats, hearty soups and juices.   Let’s show ELM’s generosity and community spirit and bring food items as requested.

Now we look forward to seeing you all Saturday morning, refreshed and full of energy!

Swim Team 

  • This Wednesday, the swim team will compete in our last dual meet of the season at TMR! There will be a school bus, free of charge for swimmers, that will be taking the kids to the meet in an organised fashion whereby younger kids will be teamed up with older ones, like a buddy system.  In addition, coaches will also be there to accompany all swimmers. The bus will be for the swimmers only due to the limited amount of seats. All kids taking the bus must confirm with their coaches by Wednesday 12:30 PM at the latest (please indicate whether it will be a 1 way or 2 way trip). The bus will leave at 4:15 pm, so please be at Elm for 4:00 if you are taking it. Other swim team coaches will also be available to drive swimmers to the meet and will leave at the same time. The return bus is estimated to arrive at Elm at around 9:45 PM.
