Dear Neptunes, 

The next 2 weeks are very busy and there will be lots of information packed into these emails! Please read carefully and let us know if you have any questions!
Coming up this week we will have our second B meet, third A meet, and on Sunday we have the A Relays!  In addition to all the meets, we have Team Picture Day tomorrow, and lots of fun things to do, including tie dye day and getting ready for MVF's annual July 4th parade!
Read on for more information!

1. Picture Day is Monday evening
2. B Meet on Wedensday at Quail Valley
3. Tie Dye Friday!
4. A Meet Saturday at Tanterra
5. A Relays on Sunday at North Creek
6. July 4th Parade on Wednesday

1. Picture Day is Monday, June 25
The entire team (including pre-team) is asked to arrive at Hurley Park by 6:15 pm. Lifetouch Sports Photography will take a team photo, and then individual phots if desired. Picture Day forms were handed out to some parents last week. Please fill those out, include payment, and bring to the pool with you. If you did not receive a form, we will have some available to fill out there. Please bring a check, made out to Lifetouch, or exact change. The team is not able to provide change as all payments are due directly to the photographer. (A single 8x10 group photo is $18.00)  An email was sent yesterday with information about ordering online if you choose.

Monday night practice schedule: The 5:15 preteam group 1 will take place as scheduled. All other practices, preteam and team will not start until AFTER the group photo is taken. Group practices will be condensed to shorter times depending on what time the photos end.

2. B Meet on Wednesday at Quail Valley
  • Theme: Neon Dance Party (B Meet Themes are always the same as the previous A Meet)
  • Warm-ups: Please arrive by 5:00, so you are ready to be in the water at 5:10 to warm-up.
  • Swimmer Sign-ups: 
    • The deadline for swimmers to sign up is the end of PM practice on Monday!
  • Volunteer Sign-ups: Even though this is not a home meet, we still need LOTS of help! We especially need a clerk-of-course (this person makes sure the kids are lined up and ready to swim) and timers (This is the best "seat" in the pool! Timers get to see all the action up close. If enough timers sign up, we can have different timers for the first and second half of the meet!)
  • B Meet Eligibility: basic information on how the B meets work on the Neptunes website here: B Meets.  
3. Tie Dye Friday!!!
The team will provide rubber bands, dye, bags.  A limited number of white shirts will be on sale for $5 each. (If you know for sure you will need them, let us know so we can try to have enough available) You can also bring your own shirt, and the white Neptunes shirts will also be available to purchase ($10 ea).
AM PRACTICE from 9:15 - 10:30 
    10 and unders should come at 9:15 to tie dye 
    11+ will tie dye from 10:00 to 10:30
 PM PRACTICE from 6:30-8:00

4. A Meet on Saturday at Tanterra
Address18605 Tanterra Way, Brookeville, MD 20833
More details to follow, including swimmers needed, later this week. If you already know you are not available Saturday, please reply to this email, or let Coach Patrick know!
Theme: TBD

5. A Relays on Sunday at North Creek 
The A Relay Carnival will be at North Creek on Sunday, July 1st at 8 am.  The coaches will be putting the lineup together this week based on A and B meet times.  Because the whole meet is RELAYS, if a swimmer does not show it means the others can not swim either, so if you already know your swimmer is not available Sunday, please reply to this email or let Coach Patrick know ASAP.

Theme: Team USA/red-white-blue - wear your newly dyed shirts!

Volunteers: North Creek will be hosting the other 5 teams in our division for this meet. That means we will need LOTS of help with setup, cleanup, and concessions. If you are available to help, please sign up! Even if you don't have a swimmer in this meet, it's a really fun event and you can come cheer on your fellow Neptunes while helping the team out!

6. July 4th Parade next Wednesday
This week at practice we will begin getting ready for the parade next week! We are finalizing details on this year's theme and will begin getting signs/banners/etc. ready during the practices this week! More details to follow.

As always, if you have any questions, please let us know!
