Swimming

On Sunday, 18 local private and Catholic schools attended the Neumann Catholic Swim League Annual Championship Meet.  The meet was broken out into 3 sessions, 8 and under, 9 and 10 year olds and 11 and older.  It was a long fun day filled with some amazing swimming!

Our little Knight Swimmers Fiona L, Josey L, Quinn M, Trevor T and Alyssa Z swam hard and had some great times with Josey winning her heat in one of her events.  Next up we had the 9-10 year old’s Brianna A, Thomas B, Bridget G, Julian H, Kennedy M, Emma P, Aniella P Tanner T and Tyler T who all had some great times.  Brianna A earned an All-Star time in the 50 free and Aniella P earned it in the 50 back.  Tyler T won his heat in his event.  The Freestyle Relay team of Thomas B,  Aniella P, Tyler T and Brianna A finished 15th place overall and will each be receiving a ribbon for their strong finish.

In the 11 and over session, SSPP was well represented with swimmers Gabby A, Quinn F, Kennedy K, Macey K, Cara M, Cassidy M, Victoria N and Isabella P.  The session started off with Gabby A taking the 1st place Gold Medal in the 200 Freestyle.  She followed up that win with a Silver Medal in the 50 Fly.  Gabby has also earned Elite All-Star by obtaining All-Star Times in all events.  Swimmer Quinn F earned an All-Star time in the 50 Free, Cara M earned it in both the 50 back and 100 free and Isabella P earned it in the 50 free.  The medley relay team of Cara, Macey, Gabby and Isabella finished 13th overall and will each be receiving a ribbon.  The freestyle relay team of Cassidy, Kennedy, Victoria and Macey won their heat and the freestyle relay team of Isabella, Cara, Quinn and Gabby finished 13th overall and will also be receiving a ribbon for their great finish.

The SSPP Swim Team finished the overall season in 2nd place!   Our 8th grade swimmers helped make that possible.  Amelia, Kennedy, Victoria and Elizabeth stepped up and joined the swim team which gave us a fighting chance.  Although swimming isn’t their favorite sport – they were true SSPP KNIGHTS and joined the swim team.  They each showed huge improvements and they can retire their swimsuits knowing they made their parents and coaches proud for being true team players.  A special THANK YOU to our dedicated coaches Summer Przybylak and Don Adamczyk and Swim Directors Suzanne Marchese and Andrea Tevens for their time and dedication to our swim team.

Look for more information this spring on how you can join the SSPP Swim Team next fall!

The SSPP Knights fought a tough battle but it seems a night of kicking up their heels at the SSPP Halloween party the night before, left many of our swimmers a tad tired.

Our tired swimmers continued to laugh and have fun on deck as they cheered on their teammates.  Some highlights of the meet – we had several swimmers who made All-Star Times:

Gabby A – 200 Freestyle, 200 IM and 50 Fly

Cara M – 200 IM

Alyssa Z – 25 Fly

Aniella P – 50 Back

The 9-10 Medley Relay team of Tyler T, Tanner T, Brianna A and Aniella P finished 1st place.

Evie W swam her first meet yesterday did awesome!

Although we lost our first meet on Sunday, our SSPP Knights showed great sportsmanship throughout the meet.  Our swimmers continue to improve each week which is a win to our coaches!

Join us for our final regular season meet next Sunday 11/4 as we take on Christ the King!

 

 

The SSPP swimmers were back at it bright and early Sunday morning.  The results were much better than our Buffalo Bills – we won the meet!  It was a nail biter – we won by 3 points.  The win came from the hard work of all our swimmers and the diligent work of our coaches and directors.  Putting together the line up’s each week is a daunting task!

The best part of the swim meet isn’t necessarily the win itself… it’s watching all the incredible things that happen on deck during the meet.  The older kids “coaching” the younger swimmers.  All the kids cheering for their teammates.  The teammates supporting each other when they are a little intimidated by their next swim.  Our SSPP Swim Team is a great reflection of our school. 

The undefeated swim team will take on the competitive DeSales team next Sunday morning at 11:30 am at Tonawanda City High School.  Please join us and cheer on our swim team!

 Although we were missing several swimmers from each age group, the team pulled together for the win.  What is more impressive than the win, was the sportsmanship our SSPP athletes showed.  Our SSPP swimmers are a great representation of our school!  Please join us to cheer on the SSPP swimmers next Sunday 10/21 at 8:30 am as we take on St. Andrew’s at Kenmore East High School!  Go KNIGHTS!


 

Why Swim Team?

Swimming is a great lifelong sport.  Swimming provides an awesome conditioning exercise for any sport your child choses to pursue and pulls kids away from the screens!  One of the greatest comforts for a parent is to have a child who is a strong swimmer.  Last year over 20% of our students participated on swim team (with a huge number of K-2nd graders).  We provide a nurturing and competitive team environment.  It is one of the few school sports that is open to children from K-8th grade.  Swim team is a perfect place for both kids and parents to meet new families and make new friends.

Who can participate?

Any child in grades K-8 who can safely swim one length of a 25m pool.  If you are unsure of your child’s ability or interest, we welcome you to attend the first few practices for a “test drive.”  If you would like to test out our team, please email Suzanne Marchese @suzanne.marchese@roadrunner.com or Andrea Tevens @ coleman_andrea@hotmail.com

What are the age groups?

The swim team is divided into three groups: children 8 and under, children 9 and 10, and children 11 and older.  The group your child belongs in will be based on their age as of September 1st.

How often is practice and what is the attendance expectation?

The team practices twice a week for one hour each session. This year our practices will be at Williamsville East HS on Monday’s and Thursday evenings.  The younger kids will practice from 7-8 and the older ones from 8-9.  We encourage children to attend as many practices as possible.  However, we do understand it is an intense season and that families have many additional commitments.  Children are never penalized for missed practices. A complete schedule is provided below.

When and where are the swim meets?

SSPP participates in the Neumann Catholic Swim League (www.ncsl-buffalo.org).  We swim against other Catholic and private schools.  There are 6 meets all held on Sunday mornings at various local pools.  Meets last approximately 2.5 hours and all children participate in at least 3 events.  There is an optional championship for all schools held at UB on November 13th.  Our first swim meet will be on September 23rd.

What is expected of parents?

Running a swim meet takes a village.  Parents are assigned various duties at every swim meet.  These duties do not preclude you from watching your children swim.  Working a meet actually is better than sitting in the stands (trust us)!  We also welcome parents with and without swim experience to help on deck at practices.  Our coaches will determine the level of parental help they require.

What does the team wear?

Children may wear any swim suit to swim practice (no bikinis).  Our team suits are navy blue.  You may purchase a navy blue suit at any store of your choice.  For your convenience, a representative from Laux’s Sporting Goods will be at an upcoming practice in early September.  You can have your child measured and purchase a suit and goggles at this time.  Swim caps are provided by SSPP.  Girls are required to wear caps (it is optional for boys).

How do you register?

Please contact Mrs. Christina Zogaria, SSPP Athletic Director at czogaria@ssppschool.com for registration materials.

When and where is practice?

Our swim practices are held at Williamsville East High School.  There must be 2 certified, CPR trained lifeguards at every practice.  Our swim meet schedule is as follows, I will forward you times of the meets when I receive them.

Running a swim meet takes a village.  Parents are assigned various duties at every swim meet.  These duties do not preclude you from watching your children swim.  Working a meet actually is better than sitting in the stands (trust us)!  We also welcome parents with and without swim experience to help on deck at practices.  Our coaches will determine the level of parental help they require.

What does the team wear?

Children may wear any swim suit to swim practice (no bikinis).  Our team suits are navy blue.  You may purchase a navy blue suit at any store of your choice.  For your convenience, a representative from Laux’s Sporting Goods will be at our practice on September 8th.  You can have your child measured and purchase a suit and goggles at this time.  Swim caps are provided by SSPP.  Girls are required to wear caps (it is optional for boys).

How do you register?

Please contact Mrs. Christina Zogaria, SSPP Athletic Director at czogaria@ssppschool.com for registration materials.

When and where is practice?

Our swim practices are held at Maryvale High School and at Villa Maria College.  There must be 2 certified, CPR trained lifeguards at every practice. The Maryvale pool is larger, so when practices are held at this pool the whole team will practice at the same time.  When the practice is at Villa Maria College, the 8 and under swimmers will practice for the first hour and the 9/10 and 11 & older will practice during the second hour.
