News and Announcements

Dear Warrior Swimmers and Parents,

I hope everybody had a great summer. I am eager to share some good news with you. Starting in September, we will be launching Warrior Aquatics at Arapahoe High School—an Arapahoe-centered and community based combined swimming and water polo club. Warrior Aquatics will be a year-round club and the only one of its kind being offered in Colorado.

Warrior Aquatics will include 2 components:
Warrior Swim and Water Polo Club (high school only)
Warrior Aquatics—(must be 8 years old by November 15)

Warrior Aquatics is designed to fill an important need in the Arapahoe community: an opportunity for those who would like to swim and/or play water polo, but who might not want to commit to a highly rigorous competitive swim team. By combining swimming and water polo, we are offering swimmers one of the very best ways to prepare and improve summer league swimming and/or prepare for a swimming program that may be more intensive.

We are having an informational meeting next Tuesday, August 27 from 3:50-4:30 pm in the Forum. Coaches Kevin, Taylor, and Randy will be leading the meeting. We would like all students to attend if they are interested.

The Plan:
The High School Swim and Water Polo Club is aiming to start on Tuesday, September 3rd. The registration season will be from Sept 3rd until November 15 when girls high school swimming will begin. Practice will start at approximately 3:55 pm and finish at 5:20 pm Monday through Friday. This Club is open to swimmers and water polo players that do not attend AHS so please feel free to forward this email to anybody that may be interested. Please see the attached practice schedules for more information.

If your high school student wants to join the Warrior Water Polo team, we will be having weekend tournaments with a championship on Saturday November 2nd at VMAC. Currently, there are 7 high schools confirmed to play in the first-ever High School Water Polo League. If you are not interested in water polo, we will also have a swimming practice available at the same time.

We would appreciate any student interested in playing water polo to register as soon as possible as the organizers of the High School water polo league are already asking for rosters!

Warrior Aquatics is an age group program designed for swimmers from ages 8-14. By combining swimming and water polo, we are offering swimmers one of the very best ways to prepare and improve summer league swimming and/or prepare for a swimming program that may be more intensive. We plan on starting this program on September 16. If you would like more information regarding this program, please email me.

Hope all of our Warriors are having a fun and safe summer!

From Coach Taylor/Lifting & Scholarship
Hey Warrior Parents and Swimmers! I am still ironing out details for the summer lifting program. Coach Richmond and I are working on getting days and times locked in for the weight room.

If any parents are interested in getting involved with the Heart of a Warrior Scholarship, please call, text or email me at 303-704-3181, taylorwatson1288@gmail.com or taylor.watson@edwardjones.com.
I know some parents were interested at the banquet. I wasn’t able to get your contact information there so please reach out to me. I need help!

All-American Photos
The only thing harder than getting an All-American time is to schedule the boys for a photo during the summer. Tina and Ben Brewer are working on this. All-American swimmers, please stay in touch with them regarding your schedules!

Congratulations to Daniel Bensen, Jack Berdahl, Jack Giesen and Kieran Pope for being voted our 2020 Swim Captains.

CRUNCH CAMP
There is a great camp for competitive swimmers at Littleton High from June 10-14th. Their are groupings for younger and older swimmers, and the 13-18 group includes weight training and lots of swimming. There is a flyer attached with much more information.

VOLUNTEER THANK YOUS
Our team runs on volunteers and we can’t thank the 2019 volunteers enough for all the hours they put it to the team. We especially need to thank Sandi Stephenson and Lisa Wuthrich for being our Volunteer Coordinator Board Chairs the last couple years. They put in countless hours making sure the roles are filled for every meet and feed. Thank you Lisa and Sandi! AND we want to thank in advance our new Volunteer Board chairs—already big volunteers for the team—Beverly Carey and Nicole Greene.

ALL-AMERICAN PHOTOS
Tina Brewer has volunteered to photograph the All-Americans. Stay tuned for an announcement. The All American boys swimmers will need to organize themselves and coordinate with Mrs.Tina Brewer to make the picture happen. Swimmers should dress in their State Team gear. The picture will need to be taken at a swimming pool in the local community.

BANQUET FOLLOW UP
Thanks to everyone who made the banquet a great success. A couple follow ups from that event:

Awards – not picked up can be picked up in the swimming pool office by mid-September.

Banquet Memory Books – Unfortunately, the Copy Center at ESC failed to print all of the Season Memory books. We will pick up the additional copies and store the memory book in the pool office. If you did not receive a “season recap” memory book, you will be able to pick up a copy in the in mid-September.

NISCA ALL-AMERICAN AWARDS
Final results for the Academic and Swimming Athletic Awards should be compiled by mid-June. Check out the final results at:
