Mercer Novice Parents/Athletes,
It has been a windy week here at Mercer, luckily we were able to get some boats out on the water! Here are the weekly team updates:
FORMS: Many of you have been so helpful turning in missing forms. Please continue to turn them in or email me with questions. I have been given a lot of forms this week so if your name is on the list and you have just recently turned in the forms – please do not hesitate to remind me! Below is the list of forms I am still missing:
PARKING/PICK UP & DROP OFF: A lot of parents have been using the upper parking lot (The one closest to the boathouse). We ask that lot be reserved for coaches only. Please do not park in the upper lot closest to the boathouse while waiting for children to finish practice. When dropping off and picking up please pull into a spot further away from the boathouse and have the athletes walk to and from the boathouse. Using the upper lot causes a lot of traffic and boats are constantly being brought around back behind the boathouse. That area needs to be clear to make boat moving feasible.
MERCER LAKE SPRINTS: The novice athletes will be participating in their first regatta Saturday April 16!! All athletes are asked to race in our white Mercer racing shirt and black spandex. If your athlete does not have a Mercer racing shirt they will be given one at the boathouse on race day. I will be sending out another email specifically talking about Mercer Sprints logistics as soon as I receive the lane draws for each boat. It is imperative that all athletes in a racing line up be here everyday next week. The week leading up to races are extremely important and missing one person from a boat is detrimental to the whole team. Below are my tentative line ups for Mercer Lake Sprints, Coach Zach is still finalizing his. With that being said, we still need volunteers for Mercer Lake Sprints. I encourage both parents and athletes to volunteer on Sunday or in the afternoon on Saturday as we are not racing during those times. Click here to sign up for volunteering.
Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions!
I am looking forward to a great practice today!
