- THE CUBE Beijing, 1st LONG COURSE OF THE SEASON
The swim team were fortunate enough to compete in this amazing facility, home of 2008 summer Olympic games where Michael Phelps re-wrote Olympic history.
Thank you to all the swimmers and parents for attending this meet and supporting our team outside of Shanghai, the participation in these meets moves our team to a higher level of performance with continuous exposure to differing types of competition, events and distances.

2. SUZHOU, NOV. 17
Check out the menu button MEETS for information this weekend about times, events and bus departures.
Participation in this meet marks our biggest turn out to any meet in SCIS swimming history. Our team shall travel with 98 swimmers to Suzhou to swim at this annual meet hosted by Dulwich Suzhou.
This is the first travel meet for many of our new u8 & bronze team swimmers, looking forward to provide these swimmers with our team hospitality & positive spirit.
Many of our strong 12th graders shall not participate in this meet to focus on academics. As always this means that the coaching team are looking for all swimmers to step up and swim their very best.
Team expectations for this meet are as follows:
- All swimmers must wear our NEW TEAM CAP or NEW DOME CAP. Please buy a spare at the store this week.
- All swimmers must wear our RED team suit at warm-ups.
- Swimmers can wear any suit during races.
- With our inexperienced u8’s the coaching team need parent volunteers and Varsity swimmers help in the marshaling hall to aid with this. Ultimately the coaches should be free to remain on poolside all day to observe their swimmers racing.
- Bronze team, Silver & Junior Varsity and Varsity – NO DQ’s.
- Good team spirit in relays and at awards ceremony, regardless the result.
- Good sportsmanship to fellow competitors within other teams, make an effort to say ‘good race’ to the swimmers you shared a heat with.
- Gain feedback from your primary coach about each race.
- Give everything you got, leave it all in the pool.
- Thank the head coach of Dulwich Suzhou, Shine Fu for the invite at the end of the day.
3. MAKE UP CLASSES FOR FRIDAY UNDER 8 TEAM
Since our 5th graders are on a school outing during this week, this has opened up space for Friday u8’s to make up classes this week with Coach Seven. Contact Coach Seven for this! <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
4. SANTA SPLASH – DATE CHANGE!
Since our team meet schedule this term has been non-stop for the coaching team I would like to review Santa Splash event.
The changed date shall be a Friday night race night on Friday 30th November: 3:30pm – until last race!
No sign up for this meet as this is a team event, the coaching team expect full team participation.
Looking for parent volunteers, volunteer sign-up shall come out after Suzhou event!
5. NEW MENU BUTTON FOR ‘MEETS’
All meet information shall be stored within this button to save any scrolling down for information, Carson mentioned it was a nuisance to find info, this is our solution to make life easier!
This is a work in progress, thanks for your patience!
