Kroc Center practices Return!  We are back!

The renovation at the Kroc Center Pool is done and we're back at the Kroc Center!  Below is our practice schedule for all three facilities.  Special ‘Traffic Detour’ note – ‘Q’ street will be undergoing some extensive road/bridge repairs.  This will be the kind of repairs that take months instead of weeks.  The first couple of times you might be a little late for practice (and that will be ok) but you might have to adjust the alarm clock 5 minutes to get back on track to being to practice on time.

Amber Sky moving to New Jersey

Amber Sky (our CSM morning coach) will be packing up the family and moving to New Jersey sometime this summer (likely will be the end of July).  Amber Sky and her husband, Matt, both are from New Jersey, so this is a move to get back home.  This will definitely leave a big void in our coaching staff.  She has done a great job with that practice time.  How are we going to fill that coaching void?  No plan has been cemented in – so this is an opportunity for our membership to give some great ideas.  Please mail any suggestions you have to tsamland@omavs.com.  Some initial thoughts – see if a current swimmer in our program would like to coach a couple of practices per week, or see if a group of masters swimmers would like to coach with each person coaching one or two days a month (coaching by committee), or have Amber Sky reconsider the move.  Let’s hear those ideas J
