FIRST OFF: Don't forget the TMSC Holiday Party on Saturday, December 12th, 7 PM. Don & Nancy Nelson's house, 2605 E. 66th Pl. Contact me if you need more info.
NEXT.....I'm pleased to announce there is a new swim coach in town! Jason Sauer was hired by Tulsa Public Schools to replace the retiring high school swim coach, Phil Brougher. Jason's first official day on the job was November 30th.
What does this mean to YOU, the adult fitness swimmer, triathlete, competitive swimmer? Jason will also take over the Tulsa Master Swim Club workouts at BTW. The schedule will be slightly different from previous months. Please see below.
Jason is a certified USA Swimming coach and has coached all levels of swimmers, including masters swimmers & triathletes. His great passion is promoting swimming & swim education to under served areas. He will start a USA Swimming age group club at BTW in the near future. Please visit his website, www.swim201.com, for more information about Jason and his program.
Here are the most current details of swimming at BTW:
ON DECK, COACHED WORKOUTS:
Monday, Wednesday, Friday mornings 6:30 to 8:00 am (the BTW 'people in charge' won't allow Jason to start practice any earlier than 6:30 am). We will share the pool with the high school swimmers.
Monday, Wednesday, Friday evenings 5:00 to 7:00 PM. (the high school kids will be finished with their workout by 5 PM.)

No practice Monday evening December 7, Wednesday January 6, and Friday February 19 due to High School swim meets. Jason will keep us posted of any other schedule changes.

Starting in January, with the regular schedule, the cost will be $50/ month for coached workouts.
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:
-- JOIN United States Masters Swimming (USMS)! All swimmers participating in the designated masters workouts at BTW need to be members of USMS for liability reasons. It only takes a few minutes to join (or renew!). Go to www.usms.org/ reg. You can print your card right there. Your membership will be good through December 31, 2010.

HOPE TO SEE YOU IN THE POOL!
