Updated Practice Schedule
Thank You from Jeff Schneider
Please pass on my sincerest appreciation to the swim team parents who volunteered at this years Dragon Boat Festival (including yourself). Their help with timing the races was invaluable. As is typical the parents approached this job with the same care they give to YMCA Swim Meets. As you know this was our first year timing the races without an independent contractor. We had many comments from participants about the quality of starts, finishes and timing of the event. Please give a special thank you to Michael Patton for securing the timing software and for planning out the whole process. I knew when we asked the parents to help us out I didn’t have to worry about a sub-par job. Everyone involved performed as well or better than the professionals we typically hire.
