Campo Verde Swim & Dive Families,
First of all, welcome to the 2019/2020 school year and swim & dive season. I believe we can all agree this season is not starting the way anyone wanted or envisioned. I would like to take a minute to address the change in our practice time. Last Thursday afternoon, July 25th, Steve McDowell, district athletic director, and I were made aware that we might lose our time slot for practice at Perry pool. This change was due to Casteel losing pool space at Queen Creek’s pool because of Eastmark High School needing a place to practice and compete. Steve and I immediately began looking at contingency plans and unfortunately had to put a plan in place on Friday when Chandler Public Schools confirmed Casteel was moving to Perry for practice and meets.
Chandler Public Schools has an IGA with the Town of Gilbert and basically takes ownership of the pool during the swim & dive season. This is the reason Campo Verde was moved to a later time to practice and unfortunately our hands are tied regarding practice times at Perry’s pool. At this time our practice will begin at 6 pm and our student-athletes will be in the pool by 6:30 pm.
Mr. McDowell and I will be working closely with Dr. McCord, GPS superintendent, for a long term practice and competition solution for Campo Verde Swim & Dive.
I fully appreciate everyone’s passion for our CV student-athletes and look forward to a great swim & dive season.
