Urgent-Jason Lezak Swim Clinic Change

Attn all Racer families who have registered for this Saturday's swim clinic at Poseidon with Olympic athlete Jason Lezak.  Due to the overwhelming response the following schedule change has been made.  If this causes a problem for anyone, please contact Ms. Mary Turner, myturner525@gmail.com, to make other accommodations.

________________________________________________________________________________________________

Wow!  What a turnout for the Jason Lezak Clinic!!  120 athletes!!

Because of this, we feel it is best to split the clinic by age groups in order to make it the best possible experience for the athletes.  The athletes will be split into groups as follows:

Ages 12 & Over:  10:00 – 12:15  (sign in begins at 9:30)

Ages 11 & Under:  11:30 – 2:00  (sign in begins at 11:15)

While the length of the sessions is now somewhat shortened, we firmly believe working in smaller groups for a shorter time will be far more beneficial.

If the change in schedule poses a problem for you because of carpooling or family members being in different sessions, please let me know and I’ll try to work out a solution.

Thanks!!
