Volunteer Needs
Establishing Warrior Scholarship

From Coach Richmond: Texts were sent to boys today informing them of their swim status (Varsity, JV etc). On behalf of the coaches, we are requesting that several swimmers be moved to JV on a temporary basis until we see an improvement. in the following categories:

1. Injury status – inability to train at the varsity level.

2. Training behavior – inconsistent commitment, dedication and willingness to practice at the standard varsity requires.

3. We have numerous committed swimmers working hard at JV practices. Their consistent training will be rewarded by moving to the Varsity training group.

4. In addition, a number of swimmers that missed the spring break practices will be moved down. A few have experienced ongoing injury issues prior to the break. It will be in their best interest to progressively re-engage their training.

5. Varsity swimmers moved down are welcome to attend the Varsity morning practices but they must practice with the JV group on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 5-6:30 pm and on Tuesday morning from 6:50 – 7:50 am. There is no Thursday PM practice scheduled for JV.

All swimmers will be evaluated on a weekly basis to determine attendance, effort, and commitment to the team. We value each individual on the team and hope that you will rise up to the challenge and become a consistent contributor to the team.

This team survives on its great volunteer workforce. Right now there is need for Tuesday’s JV Breakfast and we still need someone to start assembling the End of Season Banquet program. The JV breakfast work is a great way for JV parents to meet one another! And the Banquet Program is a pretty easy job you can do on your own time. If you can help in either of these roles, please email Sandi Stephenson or Lisa Wuthrich

From Coach Taylor: I have been working on getting a scholarship built for the senior boys. I have all the approvals I need and am now in the process of building the scholarship committee, drafting qualifications, and pursuing donations. The scholarship will be called the Heart of a Warrior Scholarship. My goal is build a scholarship that allows a senior the opportunity to receive $1000 from their Freshman to Senior year in college. I’m reaching out to all of you to see if any of you own small businesses that would like to donate to the scholarship or work for companies that would be interested in contributing to the scholarship. If you have any interest, please reach out to me or Tina Brewer. Thank you!
