Minnesota Aquafins : A Minneapolis Area Synchronized Swimming Team

No 7:30-9pm Thursday practice during MEA

posted Oct 20, 2016, 3:48 PM by Minnesota Aquafins

Just a quick reminder that the late practice 7:30-9 for our 7th-12th grade swimmers has been cancelled for October 20th due to a coaches meeting/MEA. Our 1st-6th graders will practice as usual 6-7:30 on the 20th still! 

Saturday October 1st - Practices at SLP Middle School Cancelled

posted Sep 30, 2016, 2:41 PM by Minnesota Aquafins

Due to the ongoing pool temperature issues,  practices which usually are at St. Louis Park Middle School on Saturdays are cancelled for 10/1. The practices at SLP High School will continue AS SCHEDULED.

Swimmers from the Middle School practices who have not completed skills assessments are HIGHLY ENCOURAGED to attend the 12:30-2:30 practice at the SLP High School to complete their assessments tomorrow. We only have 5-6 swimmers to wrap up their skills assessments and then we will begin assigning final practice schedules and routines!!

Thanks for your cooperation as we deal with this pool issue! There just is not a safe and productive option to get all 70+ swimmers into a single HS practice slot tomorrow. 

Thursday 9/29 Practices will be at SLP High School

posted Sep 28, 2016, 8:21 PM by Minnesota Aquafins

Due to the cold water temperatures at SLP Middle School, all Thursday Aquafins practices on 9/29 will be at the St. Louis Park High School again - an initial email about switching to SLP Middle School due to the Girl's Speed Swimming Meet was sent followed by a correction email late Wednesday night when we received confirmation of the heating issue with the Middle School Pool. Please have swimmers at SLP High School for practices prepared for both dryland and water practice. As done last week, swimmers will meet in the hallway before moving to another location in the building for dryland until the meet is complete and we are able to get in the pool. Thanks for being flexible!!

7th-12th Grade Parents Meeting/Kick-off Day Saturday Sept. 10th

posted Sep 8, 2016, 6:59 PM by Minnesota Aquafins   [ updated Sep 8, 2016, 7:05 PM ]

Hello Everyone! We're looking forward to our first day of Aquafins practice on Saturday for our 7th-12th grade swimmers!

Here's what our first day will look like!

11:30 - Parents and swimmers will attend a start-of-season informational meeting in the Cafeteria at St. Louis Park High School. This meeting usually lasts about 1 hour - we HIGHLY recommend at least one parent attend the meeting. Documents/information covered will be placed on our website after the meeting under PARENT RESOURCES for you to reference as needed.

About 12:20-2pm - After the meeting wraps up, swimmers will head to the pool area for the first practice. PRACTICE will end at 2PM this weekend, as having all our girls at one practice (usually divided into 3 practices on Saturdays) does not make swimming much of an option :) Swimmers should come prepared with their suits/caps/goggles but will most likely only be in the water for a brief bit.

*IMPORTANT - swimmers are NOT required to be registered with SLP Community Education by the first practice. HOWEVER - we do REQUIRE the swimmer information sheet to be completed via our team website (under PARENT RESOURCES) in order for girls to be allowed in the pool. We will have a computer or two available at the meeting to fill out the form if it is missing for your swimmer but please fill out before the meeting if you haven't done so already.

As always, please email us at mnaquafins@gmail.com with questions and concerns! Looking forward to the start of another wonderful season!
