Acadia Pool is re-opening tomorrow, February 20, 2013. All Tritons' practices will resume as scheduled tomorrow.
Thank you all for your patience during this period, and we look forward to seeing everyone back at Acadia Pool!
Alternative pool time has been arranged for swimmers attending East Coast Championships for the remainder of the week.
Due to limited pool space in both venues, swimmers will be broken into groups to attend practices at the different sites. Please abide by these site allocations, as space is limited in each and too many swimmers is just as ineffective as no pool at all.
There has been a very serious malfunction at the Acadia Pool, resulting in it's immediate closure. Presently, a re-opening date has not been established.
As a result, all practices for all training squads are cancelled until further notice.
The Junior, Senior & HP Training squads will be off from Saturday, December 8 through to Sunday, December 16 inclusive.
Starting on Monday, December 17, the Senior & HP squads will be swimming on a modified schedule until Saturday, January 5.
The last day of practice for the swimmers in the White, Blue & Black Training Squads will be Thursday, December 13, 2012.
Swimmers in these groups will not be swimming during the Holiday Break, as most of their coaches will be home for the Holidays.
Practices will resume on Monday, January 7, 2013 at their scheduled time.
All Tritons and their families are invited to attend the annual Wolfville Tritons Holiday Party on Thursday, December 13 from 6-8pm.
The party will be held in the Hall of Fame Room of the Acadia Athletics Complex.

Just a reminder of the Stroke and Turn Clinic coming up this Friday, Oct. 26th at 4pm in room 142 of the BAC.
The clinic will take a couple of hours (bring a snack with you!). I am preparing materials today so if I HAVE NOT heard from you and you are planning to come, please let me know so that I ensure I have enough copies for everyone.
Hello Swimming Parents,
