3. TNAT/T1/T2 - TEMPO TRAINER– AQUA SPEED - FOAM ROLLER

All T2 squad swimmers and above must have a tempo trainer. This is a necessary and very important part of their training equipment – tempo trainers can be purchased through Aqua Speed (see Keian)

T1 squad swimmers and above should also possess a foam roller.

A reminder that all T3 squad swimmers and above must keep a skipping rope in their swim bag.

Aqua Speed also have Arena racing goggles in stock for $30.


4. WISHING OUR WINGED WAVEMAKERS A SPEEDY RECOVERY

Over the last couple of weeks we have lost two very enthusiastic wavemakers - Noah Ralph and Hayley Langford - to injuries sustained away from the pool. Noah will be out of action with his leg in a brace for around 6 weeks, and a fall from a scooter has left Hayley with a break in her wrist/arm in two places.

We wish both Noah and Hayley a speedy recovery.


5. INTER-DISTRICT CHAMPIONSHIPS NEXT WEEKEND

Best of luck to the following 11 wavemakers who have been selected to represent the Mid-North District at the Inter-District Championships at Clare next weekend. The event will comprise 4 sessions of swimming conducted across 3 days (Sat pm to Mon am). It is an honour for these swimmers to selected on to this team, and we congratulate them on their selection and wish them well.

Jack Duffin, Harliai Curthoys-Davies, Tyla O’Neill, Kyrene O’Neill, Riley Hallett, Makayla Docherty, Keian Curthoys-Davies, Charlotte Ashmead, Jonte Reimann, Hannah Joseph and Ella Goldsmith.


6. SAPSASA BAROSSA AND LIGHT CARNIVAL

Best of luck to the many wavemakers competing at the Barossa and Light Region SAPSASA sports to be held at Nurioopta tomorrow (MON 3rd) . Unless otherwise required to wear a school swimming cap, we would like all our Barossa wavemakers to wear their club cap when swimming at this meet.

Coach Scott and I will be in attendance. We look forward to an exciting day watching our wavemakers perform at their best in front of their respective school communities.


7. STARPLEX MEET SAT 23rd JANUARY

Entries for the club targeted meet of Sat 23rd January have closed. Final wavemaker entry numbers were 47, making us the equal most-heavily represented club at the meet with the home club STARplex.

Thank you for supporting the coaching panel’s initiative to have 50 swimmers at the meet – we almost made it!

We are permitted to enter 3 relay teams in the two available relay events – Mixed open 4x50 free and Mixed open 4x50 medley. Relay teams will be announced soon.


8. MAD MARCH TITLES

All eligible wavemakers are encouraged to enter this final meet of the long course season at the SAALC (Marion) pool on the weekend of March 29th to 31st.

This meet offers the swimmer a final chance to achieve a season long course goal time (PB), and it is recommended that the swimmer select events at this meet in which they feel they have not yet reached their season potential or targeted time.

Swimmers hoping to be considered for selection on to the state schools team should also enter this meet as times achieved at this meet are used for team selection.


9. CHANGES TO TIMETABLE THIS WEEK AND NEXT

Again this week, Monday’s team meeting will be held from 5.00pm at the conclusion of the T3/T4 squad session.

There will be no T4 or TNAT and T1 squad session held on Saturday due to the Inter-District Championships. T4 swimmers may join the T3 session from 12.50pm.
