Family Relay Meet & Thanyapura

Family Relay – Saturday 9am-1pm – 200pesos per swimmer – SIGN UP
We are gearing up for a fun filled day on Saturday. I have had a few questions and so hopefully they will be answered in the below information.
– Please sign-up before 3pm tomorrow (Thur) so we can start arranging the teams.
– We do need some help from parents who are not swimming so please sign up HERE
– Siblings of Sailfish Swimmers may enter also. Please do sign them up if they are swimming, I have now added that as an option to the form.
– By popular requests I will try and arrange families in the same teams as much as possible. However we do want to make teams as fair as we can for interesting competition.
– Once we have final numbers I will send out teams and races on Friday afternoon.
– Please be prepared for fun relays, such as mat races, noodle relays and various strokes… There will be no disqualifications for incorrect strokes, only those who break rules.
– We will have check in at 9am. Once everyone is ready races will commence. Around 11am we will have an open pool and food and drinks served.
– Our wonderful parent team have secured great prizes for the events from our sponsors, Vitacoco, Basecamp and Lazerextreme at Market Market, and Trapeze in BGC
– As you may be aware there is a Typhoon looming. I have the covered court booked as a back up and we can host many fun relay events if needed.
Thanyapura Swim Camp – Oct 22nd-31st – Sign-Up 
The deadline for sign up is this Friday. Please email me if you have any questions. We now have the minimum of 10 swimmers to run the camp but would be great to have a large group. For more information click HERE

Coach Holly Chapman
