Mock Meet Tonight, Team Survey, Gift Cards, Schedule Update, Zone 2 Meet

Brian Pursley

Hello Hurricanes Families,

Great job to all the swimmers who competed at the CSI Long Course Open last weekend. We had a lot of great swims, including a suprising number of best times for this point in the summer. I look forward to seeing what we can do with a few more weeks of work behind us at the Zone 2 meet!

There are a few reminders for everyone. Please take a look below and have a great week!

Thanks and go Hurricanes!

Coach Brian


Mock Meet #2 Tonight!

Category 1 and 3 will have the second Mock Meet of the summer during tonight's regularly scheduled practice time. It will be entirely in a relay format. Come on in ready to cheer loud and race hard! Our last mock meet will incled Category 1 and 2 on Tuesday, July 11th.


Team Survey Still Open

Please see this note from our volunteer survey organizer, Laural Hyslop:

You have just a few more days to complete the Evergreen Swim Team Survey as it will close on Mon, June 26th. Just 40% of families have completed the survey. I want you to know that this survey is COMPLETELY ANONYMOUS. Your names are not connected to your data in any way. I can only see who has completed it in a separate file and I DO NOT tell anyone who completed it. I hold a PhD in psychology and work in education and market research where I follow all ethical guidelines. I will provide the data to the Board and Coaches in aggregate. That means that they wouldn't see if you said you were a Cat 3 parent and what you said specifically. I will also make sure there are no identifying items in the comments. If the data is too small to break apart by group and would compromise identity then I won't do so. 

Only one parent/guardian of the swimmer received the link. If you don't remember completing or receiving the email with your family's personalized link OR  If the survey says that you have already completed it or it has timed out but you haven't completed it, I can send you the link. Please email me at [email protected].

The information you provide is extremely helpful to the Board and coaches to make changes, keep things you like, or just stay the course.
