It's been an eventful semester for Penn Club Swim! We traveled to Rutgers early in the fall for their invitational, then welcomed teams from around the area to Sheer Pool for our own fall invitational. We also traveled to Princeton at the end of November for their meet. We've enjoyed a number of pasta parties and team dinners, and we are looking forward to more to come in the spring.
The team held elections for our new board last night, and we wish the best to all the outgoing, returning, and new officers!

It was great to see everyone out at our interest meeting and first official practice! We're looking forward to a fun year with both old and new members.
To kick off the year, we'll be having our Annual Team BBQ on Friday, September 13th! Check your e-mail for updates, a sign-up sheet, and more details in the coming week.
Furthermore, we're looking at going to our first away meet at Rutgers on Saturday, October 5th. We'll send out sign-ups for events when we get closer to the meet.
Practice has resumed as normal at the following times:
See everyone at practice on Sunday!
Just found out that the Student Activities Fair
has been moved to Tuesday, September 3rd from 5-9pm
! We still want old and new members to come say hi, just don't expect to see us on the walk on Monday :)
That being said, we will instead have our first interest meeting on Wednesday, September 4th at 7:45pm on the bleachers by the pool in Pottruck. After the meeting, new members are welcome to jump in the pool for practice!
For returning members, we have pool time starting Sunday! We will have out first practice for returning members
who filled out WAIVERS
(hint hint, nudge nudge) this Sunday, September 1st, from 6-8pm
. We hope to see as many of you as possible stop by! We may also go for dinner afterwards. We will also have practice Tuesday, September 3rd at 9:20 after the Activities Fair.
To all of our old members: Welcome back!
To all interested new members: Welcome! We're excited to meet you :)
We hope to see both old members and interested members Monday, September 2nd, at the activities fair. As soon as we find out which table will be ours, we will get you updated.
After the activities fair, we'll have our interest meeting and first practice (wooo!) Tuesday, September 3rd at 9:20pm. For new members, this will be an opportunity to meet the officers and hear a little more about the team. For returning members, come say hi and meet the new members!
We will be holding unofficial practice tomorrow Wednesday, August 28th at 7:45pm and Sunday, September 1st at 6pm. We're looking to do a run down to the museum on Wednesday and a dry land practice on Sunday. Meet on the steps in front of Pottruck!
MOST IMPORTANTLY: WAIVERS
. Returning members MUST
fill out a waiver in order to participate. This year, we're doing waivers online. You can find the waiver HERE
. It takes just a second to fill out, but you won't be able to practice if you don't fill out the waiver. For newcomers, we'll have you fill out the waiver at the interest meeting or in the first couple days of practice.
We're looking forward to a fun, exciting year with everyone! See you soon!
This Saturday, February 23rd, the team will be heading over to Rutgers for their Spring Splash Meet. It's our very own VP's old home pool and promises to be a fun meet. Warm-ups begin at 12:30 and the meet starts at 1:30 with a projected end time of 6:00. More details on transportation to come, so stay updated on your e-mail!
Following the meet, we'll be doing a team dinner out. We're thinking Mexican food. Stay tuned for more details!
Elections finished up last week and we want to congratulate all the new and returning officers. We also want to thank the outgoing officers for all the work they have put in and the time they have dedicated to the team. Our 2013 Board of Officers are:
President- Hannah Lan
Vice President- Melissa Co
Treasurer- Nick Giordano
Secretary- Emily Garth
SCC Rep- Aaron Lidawer
Apparel Manager- Sarah Dean
Coaches- Jesse Schuschu, Emma Soren, John Lee, and Roasalie Machado
Feel free to get to know the new officers at practice and be sure to thank the old ones for their work!
The semester is coming to an end and we're (finally!) getting to go to a meet! It's December 1, this coming Saturday, and it's going to be a
blast splash! We'll be heading to Princeton by bus Saturday morning, swimming like champs, then heading home in the evening. We'll be meeting at 33rd and Spruce in front of Franklin Field at 9:45 Saturday morning. After the meet, we're expecting to leave Princeton around 5 and be back to campus around 6:30.
After a lot of success with our beginning of the year BBQ and our pasta party (even though the pool broke), we've decided to have a team dinner out!
We'll be going to Don Memo's Mexican Restaurant next Thursday, October 25th. Please RSVP through the GoogleDoc sent over the listserv. We're looking to have a really great time, and we want all team members to come!
Our first formal practice of the year will be this Sunday, September 9th, from 6-8pm. Please try to be on time as we will be signing waivers and we can't allow you to practice without the insurance waiver. Bring goggles, your suit, and be ready for the start of a good season!
We're having our first meeting of the year tomorrow, September 5th at 7:30pm on the bleachers in Pottruck to discuss social events and meets for the first semester. Stop in to say hello and give us some input on what you'd like to see happen this year. After the meeting, you're welcome to hop in the pool for a little while, but we will not be holding formal practice until Sunday, September 9th when we will be signing waivers and getting the necessary paperwork out of the way for the year. See you then!
