Swim/Dive meeting Friday, Aug. 24, after school, Alumni Suite
Hi Providence Students,

This is Jim Pfeiffer, head coach of your Super Sonic Swim and Death Defying Dive Team! The 2018-2019 season is fast approaching, and we want you to help us succeed wildly in the pools.

Swim and dive is a non-cut sport with lots and lots of personal opportunities to compete against schools in Indiana and Kentucky.

Swam before?  Great, come on out!  Never swam before?  Great, come on out! Think you sink like a rock? Yeah, we’ll fix that. Think you’re not good enough? So what? Everything you, me, everyone is good at, we had to start some time.

All of Providence’s returning swimmers “were there” at some point, so we all get it.  We are a very supportive, encouraging and positive group, so stop by and see what our team is all about.

So what equipment do you need? Suit, swim cap and goggles. Plus we furnish training fins and other water equipment to help you get the most out of your strokes.

We’re changing suits this year. Solid Navy with the Providence logo. Which gives you options for the first time. For the ladies, there are 3 suits from which to choose and for the guys, 4 options are available for you.  So pick the suit that’s most comfortable for you!

The school pays for half the suit. You are responsible for goggles. That’s it.

If you are ready to commit to a suit, have a check and the form ready next Friday. Not sure what suit works best for you or are unsure of your size? No problem. The representatives from Swimville in Middletown will be out on Wednesday, Aug. 29, to allow you to try on suits. 

We hope to see you next Friday after school to either sign up or get more information about our amazing program.

Saint of the Day: Solemnity of the Assumption Of Mary. The doctrine of the Assumption of Mary is recent: 1950. But the belief among the faithful that Mary was assumed body and soul into heaven at the time of her death dates to the early Church. Mary is also the summation of all Christians—what happened to her, will happen to us. Thus, she is the testimony of our own resurrection at the end of time.
