Middle School is still closed so remember all practices are at the high school this weekend! Today's practices are all at the usual times - location change only. Watch for details on NEXT Saturday's schedule as THERE WILL LIKELY BE TIME CHANGES FOR MANY OR ALL PRACTICES. Thanks for your patience as we work through this second major pool closure of the season!

Reminder - Middle School Pool Closed

Hey Everyone!

Just a quick reminder that the Middle School Pool is closed for the next three weeks. Practices tomorrow will be at regular times with location changed to St. Louis Park High School. We will update you with the schedule for the next two Saturdays as soon as they are finalized!

See everyone tomorrow!

PRACTICES CANCELLED TODAY SATURDAY DEC. 17th

posted Dec 17, 2016, 5:58 AM by Minnesota Aquafins

Hello Everyone -

While the snow appears to have stopped, we have decided to cancel all aquafins practices today. SLP Community Education has cancelled our Middle School practices  and while the High School building is still open, we have decided based on road conditions that we will cancel everyone. With so many of our girls and coaches driving in from well outside SLP and lots of new teen drivers in our HS programs, the last thing we want is anyone to get into an accident on their way to/from practice, especially with the dangerous cold moving in! We would have loved to see everyone but it would likely not have been a productive practice with so many gone due to the bad roads.

We ask all the swimmers - especially our High School 7th-12th graders - to please take extra time today and look over your routine counts and try to learn some additional parts from your count sheet where possible - DINOSAUR, Midnight, and BAD team, we are working to update your count sheets so you will have a bit more you can work on and most everyone else should have a completed count sheet!!

Please at the very least encourage your swimmer to spend some dedicated decking time today - LOTS of groups still need much more decking to really memorize their routine!

As always, please email with questions or concerns! Stay safe and warm and enjoy the unexpected day off today!

Practices Saturday Dec. 17th Update

Due to bad weather, we will be making at decision around 8AM tomorrow morning regarding practice and if we will cancel or not. Keep watch on your email and facebook/team website for an update tomorrow morning!! As soon as the decision is made we will update you. Thanks so much for your patience!!

Parents Meetings Tomorrow 12/10!

posted Dec 9, 2016, 6:47 PM by Minnesota Aquafins

Hello Everyone! Just posting a quick reminder that we have parents meetings at the start of each practice happening tomorrow. Please meet in the pool area at the location your swimmer practices at for Saturdays! Meetings will run approximately 30-45 minutes and will also include an opportunity to see the girl's routines!! 

**There is VERY important information we need to discuss at all 4 practices/meetings, but especially for those with Saturday practices at the Middle School - Please try to have at least one parent/guardian attend tomorrow if at all possible!**

Thanks everyone! Looking forward to seeing many of you tomorrow!

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!!

**GIRLS WHO PRACTICE AS SLP MIDDLE SCHOOL ON SATURDAY - PLEASE WATCH EMAIL FOR FURTHER COMMUNICATION REGARDING PRACTICE PLANS FOR THIS WEEKEND. AS SOON AS WE KNOW WHAT OUR OPTIONS WILL BE WE WILL LET YOU KNOW**
