8th grade athletes

Hello Parents! 
You are being contacted because you have an athlete(s) who is in 8th grade. Each year, we invite the 8th graders to participate in the HS spring session which is after school from 3:45-5:30 Monday through Thursday. The dates for the program are longer than spring clinic. The afternoon session focuses on drylands as well as more technique incorporated with swimming. 

We like to invite the 8th graders for a couple of reasons. We like that they can see what it is like to practice after school, with most not having done that. Then they can get used to having to do their homework at night, instead of after school. Another reason for liking them to practice after school, is so they can get to know the athletes on the team. They form bonds and relationships early on, which is great for development and comfort when they come to the high school next year. Even if they are not coming to Tennent, it still is great for them to form relationships!  

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me- I do not mind answering them. We would love to have every one of your children after school. High school is a whole other level and its always great to get a head start on their comfort level.

Thank you and have a nice night!
