Hey Elm Park!

The VP Swimming announced that Time Trials will be postponed to tomorrow (Sunday, August 5th) still at Glenmore. There will be a warm-up at 8:00 am and then the meet will resume at 9:00 am from Backstroke until the end. There will be a shorter break between Fly and Relay (TBD, we are asking if the break can be removed). Thank you all very much for your patience today.
Our rowdy team spirit and participation are what makes Elm Park great, so on behalf of the staff, we sincerely hope you can all make it back tomorrow and support our team to finish the meet off with a bang!

A reminder that swimmers who are swimming backstroke, butterfly and/or relay must compete tomorrow in order to be allowed to participate at Big Meet. This also means that if a participant is a swimming relay, they have to be there in order for the team to qualify.  We have to have our relays tomorrow in order to have any for Big Meet. Thank you all for coming out today and we hope to see you all tomorrow!

If you cannot make it back tomorrow for any reason or are now available to swim, please communicate with the coaches ASAP as this affects the team as an entirety.  We need to ensure we do our best to keep all of our lanes filled! Thanks!

Also note that Masters at 10:00 tomorrow (Sunday) will be canceled due to swim team coaches required to be at Time trials. However, weekend lessons will still happen as usual.

Lastly,  don’t forget the results of Time Trials will be announced to all participants and their families this Monday, August 6th during a pizza dinner at the pool at 6:30 PM.  There is a small fee of $5.00 to cover the cost of the slice of pizza, drink, and chips.  Please let us know via email how many family members will be joining us with your preference of pizza so we can order the correct quantity, as much as possible.

Go Elm Go!
