Deerfield Bluefins Pool Location

Hi Northstars,

The pool for the Deerfield Bluefins, where we will be having our meet tomorrow morning is at 6 Lupine, Irvine, CA 92604.  However, it has been suggested that we park in the lot at Deerfield Elementary School which is located at 2 Deerfield Ave., Irvine, CA 92604.

If you are ever wondering about the location of a pool, it is listed on the Irvine Swim League website under pool locations: http://www.irvineswimleague.org/pool-locations/

Remember to wear blue tomorrow!  Go Northstars!

Coach Kyle’s letter 7-24

Hey Northstars,

Unfortunately Coach Kacie and myself got food poisoning from Buffalo Wild Wings (beware!). Thus, we’re going to reschedule the “Be the Coaches” fundraiser that was supposed to take place tonight to August 2nd – immediately after our home swim meet. The coaches think that we will be able to involve a lot more swimmers this way and it’ll be convenient since families are already at the pool for the meet. 

I will leave the google doc up and make the necessary changes – please continue to sign up if you wish to participate! It will be August 2nd, following the swim meet which will probably be around 130 or 2 at our Park Paseo pool. 

Since there’s more time until then, I can explain the fundraiser in more detail as well in the next couple of weeks. I can get more coaches involved too! :) 

Sorry for anyone that was inconvenienced by this rescheduling – especially with short notice.

I’ll see everyone Saturday at Deerfield at 745am! 

Best,

Kyle 

GO NORTHSTARS!

Coach Kyle’s letter 07-21 (2)

Hey Northstars,

Before talking about the fundraisers, I also wanted to give a shout-out to both Claire Fu and Sydney Lin for breaking more records this past week.

Claire broke the Girls 7-8 25 freestyle record, making it her second record broken.

Sydney completed her sweep of the Girls 9-10 records by getting records in the 50 butterfly, 50 backstroke, 100 IM, and 50 breastroke (she already had the 50 freestyle record).

That now brings our record-breaking times total to NINE!! Good job guys!

For the “be the coaches” fundraiser, please see this link and fill it out (if you wish to participate: [Links to the shutterfly team site]

Please do not erase anyone else’s submission! Coach Kacie will be on the pool deck to collect money (cash or checks made payable to Park Paseo Northstars). We will go in the order of the google doc sheet, so make sure to sign up first! As a friendly reminder, this starts at 6:30 on Thursday, July 24.

For the swim-a-thon, please print the attached document and fill it out accordingly.  Please ignore the date (July 18), the actual date is Thursday, July 31. Please also ignore the money due date of July 25, that due date will be August 7th.. I couldn’t find my original file to make edits, so I had to resort to using last year’s (sorry about that!).

If you have any questions, feel free to ask me!

Best,

Kyle

Coach Kyle’s letter 07-21 (1)

Hey Northstars,

I hope you all had a great weekend. I can’t believe we’re going into the last few weeks of the season!

There are a number of important announcements this week, so please make sure to read these e-mails (I will be sending a few – sorry to take up your inbox this week!).

First, we have an away meet this Saturday at Deerfield. Please show up for check-in at 7:45am. Since we can use the full warm-up time (8am-9am), there will be no need to have warm-up at Park Paseo this week. Please allow Levels 1-3 to check-in first. Level 1 will start warm-up immediately at 8am.

This is very important! I will be submitting the meet seeds this Wednesday/Thursday for not only this Saturday’s meet but also August 2nd’s swim meet. If you are missing either meet (July 26 or August 2), coming late, or arriving early, please let me know no later than Wednesday night/Thursday morning. 

Secondly, we have two fundraisers coming up. The “be the coaches” fundraiser will take place this Thursday after Level 4′s practice at 6:30pm. The “be the coaches” fundraiser is where a Northstar gets to coach the coaches for a maximum of four laps – doing anything they want (as long as it’s in the pool and somewhat reasonable). It will be Coach Brandon & Coach Morgan, along with myself participating in this fundraiser. I will send out a separate e-mail detailing this fundraiser.

We also have our annual swim-a-thon, where swimmers raise money from friends, family, and others for laps they complete. The swim-a-thon will take place during normal practice times next week on Thursday, July 31st. I will send out a separate e-mail detailing this fundraiser.

Just as an FYI – this week’s “be the coaches” fundraiser will count as our Fun Friday!

Best,

Kyle
