 Hi Dive Families,

Here is a summary for the week.

Monday - regular practice.  We will be preparing for our first meet by confirming that the divers have all of their qualifying dives.  Meet sheets will be prepared for each diver.

Tuesday - First dive meet at Dominion Hills.   

  •     We will meet in the upper parking lot at 4:00 and caravan over to the pool.  If anyone needs a ride, I can accommodate four.  If you are available to drive, let us know.
  •     Commonwealth get the boards from 5:00 - 6:00. This is an opportunity for the kids to get some practice dives in before the meet.   The meet starts promptly at 6:00.
  •     If you volunteered to work tables or judges and are unable to make the meet, please let me know in advance so I can find a substitute.
  •     After the meet we will head over to Josie's Self Serve at University Mall off Braddock Road for some well earned and well deserved pats on the backs and high fives - oh yes and some YUMMY treats!!
  •     Directions to Dominion Hills can be found via map quest or on the NVSL website .  The address is 6000 Wilson Blvd, Arlington (right past Seven Corners next to a skateboard course).  Their pool phone number is 703-533-7550.  Don't ask me how to get there. I am the worse at directions.
  •     Dominion Hills will have a concession stand, so feel free to plan your dinner at the pool.

WednesdayNO PRACTICE because of team pictures,   Be at the pool by 8 am for team and individual pictures. Order forms were placed in the swim/dive mail folder. But, there will be extra that day.  Sorry, that means "fun" day is cancelled as well.  If you were planning on bringing your treat Wednesday, if you want to bring on Thursday instead that would be great.  Let me know if you are able.

Thursday - regular practice

Friday - regular practice in the morning, then in the evening Potluck dinner and spirit activity for 11-12 age group. (NOTE July 8th will be for 9-10 age group).  The Potluck Dinners are open to all Commonwealth Pool Members regardless of whether your child(ren) swim or dive so please encourage your non CUDA team friends to come.


As always, if you have any questions, please let me, Coach Sarah or Coach John know. See you all at the pool.
