Season Calendar:
All important dates are listed in our calendar of events that can be found on our team website ( Please visit it regularly to check for updates. In addition, I have attached our schedule of meets to this email.

Mandatory Practices:
Practices will be held on Wednesdays from 3:00-4:00 pm @ GISC and Fridays from 5:00-6:00 am @ RSFC. All practice are mandatory! If your athlete is not at our practices, they will not be allowed to participate in our meets. If your athlete will not be at a practice, Coach Emr needs to know in advance. Please email her as soon as you know of a conflict!
Divers will not be required to attend our Friday morning practices, as we do not have access to a diving board. They will need to select one of the three county practices to attend and let Coach Emr know: Wed. @ MLK 3:00-4:30; Thurs. @ GISC 3:30-5:00; Fri. @ GAC 3:30-5:15
We have received confirmation from our Athletic Director that athletes have been given permission to leave their last period class during the afternoon announcements in order to beat the traffic and get to our Wednesday practices on time. If your athlete encounters difficulty from their teacher, please contact Chris Thompson (AD).

Team Uniform:
Make sure you wear your team uniform to our meets! Returning athletes: our suit is the same as last year. New athletes: stop by Cassel’s Swim and Awards located at 831 Rockville Pike (where Aardvark used to be). Ask an associate for Wootton’s team suit, and they will point you in the right direction.

Mandatory Player Pack & Optional Clothing Order:
Every athlete is required to purchase a player pack. For $25, your athlete will receive a custom team shirt and two swim caps. Divers & Managers: since you do not require swim caps, your player pack will be for the prorated amount of $20. For an additional $10, you may also purchase an optional Swim & Dive magnet.
Coach Emr is still missing payment from many athletes! Please bring your check made payable to Wootton Booster Club to practice on Wednesday. Thank you to those of you who have already paid!

We also have other clothing options available for athletes and parents! Please visit the website below to place your order. The website will be open until Saturday, December 16th. Once all orders have been placed, the orders will be delivered to Coach Emr and she will distribute them at practices.

Friday Social at the Carlson’s:
This Friday evening, join us at 6:30 pm for our weekly social at Elizabeth Carlson’s house (1 Dunleith Ct., North Potomac) as we prepare for our first in-division meet of the season. Swimmers & divers should come hungry and ready for a good time. The Carlson’s will provide the main course, and they are asking athletes to bring the following contributions:
Freshmen class – side dishes
Sophomore class – drinks
Junior class – desserts
Senior class – bread, rolls, or salad

Coach Emr will have the meet lineup for athletes to sign off on and the divers will be meeting to discuss dives. If you are not going to be at the meet this weekend, please let Coach Emr know as soon as possible!
