Congrats to all our Moms that ran the 50 meter race! It was so fun seeing all the athletes cheering for their moms!  

I would like thank to our Staging crew, especially Heather Kuck for keeping the meet running smooth! All of our volunteers are so awesome.

It is hard to believe we are near the end of our season!

This week we will have a little less duties at the meet, as there will be 6 teams present! Please read the information about the next 2 weeks carefully! 


Thursday we will have a special treat for all Coaches and athletes! The Kona Ice Truck will be at practice and all athletes and Coaches will be treated to one. Parents and siblings are able to purchase one for $4.00 a cup if they want!! Athletes and coaches are paid for by Storm!! 


Championship meets. All athletes will go to a championship meet on either May 7th or May 14th.  All Sub-Gremlins will got to the May 7th meet, and all non qualifiers will go to the May 17th race

Athlete's that are close to the (Q) time may be invited to go to the May 14th meet. Athletes will not be allowed to attend both of those meets. these are such fun meets because the top 6 in each age group will be awarded a medal at the meets.

Team Fundraiser Opportunity
 
The STORM team has been met with unexpected expenses this spring and we have been reluctant to request any fundraising, but an opportunity is available that can benefit you and your family and the STORM family.
 
A local swim school with participants in STORM has offered to help fund-raise with a profit-sharing opportunity. The Swim Ranch is a private learn-to-swim and performance swim instruction service. The results are unmatched in the region. If you have your own pool, go to the ocean … there is no doubt that swimming is very important for basic safety.
 
We consider this option especially beneficial because the skill of knowing how to swim correctly promotes fitness and safety across all ages.
 
Let them know that you are members of STORM and they will donate 20% directly to the team.
Lessons are private or semiprivate (when applicable). Please visit their website for more information at www.theswimranch.com or contact Dave and Heather directly at theswimranch@gmail.com.
 
Sincerely,
