Hello here is the link for photo’s from Heather Anderson from this years regionals.

Hey All,
Here is the link for Heather Andersons photo’s from the regional meet.

Twas The Night Before Regionals (Neptunes Edition)

Twas the Night before Regionals,
And all through the house
Not an athlete was stirring
Only Mom and her spouse

The Neptunes were snuggled all cozy in beds
With visions of PB’s abound in their heads
Swim bags were packed, at the front door they sat
And parents preparing with lists and a chat

Tents-towels-and chairs, snacks-drinks were checked off
With this sport and these meets comes far too much stuff!
But bonding and friendships are worth it in GOLD
Young and old these events build lifelong stories to be told

In Abby we gather for 3 days on grass
Create a portable city, to chill and let pass
The hours, they tick and tock slow between cheers
To remedy that I say “be a timing volunteer”!!!
So fulfilling, so rewarding to sit in that chair
If it’s hot you keep shaded with food and water to spare
Front row seat to the comp, watch your kids in the pool
Swim faster, reach higher, now isn’t that cool

With provincials the next step, the tension is high
Our coaches are frantic, I ain’t gonna lie
So respect their space and time, the kids are main focus
Talk to them at the end of the day with any hocus pocus

Our Team is amazing, the camaraderie is strong
Just watch in the morning as they start with a (cheer) song
It kicks the day off with some friendly team comp
Cause the rest of the day in the pool, time to stomp
But wait when they jump out, the inter-club bonds are great
In other sports they would likely find this hard to relate

Event after event, for 3 days they roll
What seems pretty relaxing, for sure takes a toll
So get pumped, get stoked, get ready for this
Not a lap or a stroke will you want to miss
Cheer on yours, cheer on theirs when you can we’re a team
For the meets we’re a family, it appears, it would seem.
Build memories, build friendships, life’s lessons it brings
Among smiles, and cheers, among many other things!

Thanks to Dave Chamberlain for this incredible poem!

A great thanks to all of our volunteer coaches for the great work with the future Neptunes.
Under the leadership of Diane Lego and Jeannette Baxter, the program went very smooth.
