GKAISA NEWS AND NOTES: June 21

Team Reps and Coaches,

I hope you had a great week last week. Based on our Instagram/Twitter Challenge, we have lots of teams with TEAM SPIRIT!! Congratulations to this week's winners, Gettysvue and Benington-Farrington. You will be receiving a sweet treat at practice this week!!

INSTAGRAM AND TWITTER CHALLENGE

Many of our teams will be holding their first virtual meet this week. I know that our swimmers will have their "game faces" on and will be ready to go. This week's theme is "Show Us Your Game Faces!" We want to see swimmers ready to take on the competition in the pool. Remember to identify your team and to use #GKAISA.

SENIOR SPLASH

As long as Health Department directives permit, we will hold a “Senior Splash” meet on Saturday, July 25 at Knoxville Racquet Club. At that time, we will honor our GKAISA Seniors and award the Tom Schumann and Bill Lauer Service Awards and the James Rich Courage Award.

Any swimmer who is age 18 or who has just completed high school will be eligible to compete – even if your team is not swimming this year. Participation in this meet will not affect a swimmer’s ability to obtain a waiver to swim next summer.

Additional details will be forthcoming.

Also, please send the names of your seniors, along with a short bio and a photo to Sherren Chadwell at robsherren@hotmail.com.

COACHES' CERTIFICATES AND POOL INSURANCE FORMS

Coaches should have submitted their training certifications to Breckenridge Morgan by now. Please check your email to be sure that all of your coaches have submitted all five (5) forms to Breckenridge.

Also, please send your Insurance Declaration forms to Breckenridge. If your insurance is not set to renew until July, please send him an email to let him know.

… AND FINALLY….

Thank you for all that you are doing for your teams and your swimmers. While it is not the summer that we envisioned, it is shaping up to be a fantastic one nonetheless. That is a testament to all of the work that all of you are doing.

Happy Swimming!

Angelia Nystrom
