2018-2019 Alignments posted

Here are the new 5A alignments for Texas for the 2018-2019 school year:

http://www.uiltexas.org/files/alignments/5ASD18.pdf

Mainly note that Austin High is no longer in our District(they moved up to 6A), but our Region remained basically the same. This makes getting to Regionals a bit less difficult, but there are still big contenders at the Regional level.

Our new District:

Austin Crockett

Austin Johnson

Austin McCallum (us)

Dripping Springs

Elgin

Giddings

LaGrange

Wimberly

UIL District / Regional / State meet tracking sites

Here are the results of almost all of the District meets from around the State. We are Conference 5A, Region 5, District 20. Our Region is made up of District 17-20.
At the Region meet we will compete against all the other Districts in our Region, after the Region meet, we compete against all the top qualifiers from all 8 Regions in the state.
Kind of interesting to see where the other district meets are being held. We are very lucky to be @ UT!
This site tracks all the meets:  http://district-the athletics dept.com

TYR Pro Series in Austin

Since a lot of you aren’t obsessively focused on the swimming universe you might not know that the TYR Pro Swim Series is in Austin this week. This is an excellent opportunity to see some REALLY FAST swimming. Lots of swimmers you will recognize from the Olympics, plus many that you will want to note for Tokyo 2020. Come out and get motivated for District!
If you can’t go to the District meet and want to follow along you should check out the MeetMobile app. For a nominal fee you can flag your favorite swimmers and teams and track the progress of the meet. This is so much better than relying on your athlete to text you their results 🙂
Finally, if you need some motivation, tips, and swimming news you should check out SwimSwam and FloSwimming. Both sites do a great job of covering the national swim scene including one of my recent favorite videos on UT’s legendary men’s coach Eddie Reese and what makes him so great.

Mac Team Merch-Orders closed

Mac_swim_shirt_10_17Hello Mac Swim Fam,

 

***ORDERS ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED***

contact Joey  joey@macstwimatx.com to see what stock is available

Hello Mac Swimmers and Parents!
I’ve been working with several other parents to get custom suits and apparel ordered for the team and it is time to place our orders. The orders are being placed THIS FRIDAY – the portal will close Thursday October 12 at 8 pm.
For those who want to jump in and start ordering, the store link is here.
Suit sizes and preferences were taken at practice last week. If you need to double check they can be viewed here. If a change needs to be made please email joey@macswimatx.com.
 
The suits are custom made (sublimated) from Rocket Science Sports and they are giving us their wholesale pricing. We can also get competition (technical) suits for any kids who want them at wholesale prices. These suits are typically only used at championship events as they are only good for a few races. If you are interested please let me know and I can give you more details.

Many thanks to Evelyn Escamilla at Avocado Street Design for designing team gear and Juliee Beyt for spearheading the whole process.

-Joey

aka Jordan’s Dad​
I’ve gotten a few questions today and wanted to answer them all here for clarity and consistency.
  • Q: Where can I buy Mac Swim merch?
    A: Here.
  • Q: The suits don’t have a size option. What’s that about?
    A: All the swimmers tried on suits at practice last week and recorded their preference so we don’t need their sizes.
  • Q: My swimmer is down for a size that I have doubts about. Can I get a resize?
    A: I will have the try on suits at practice tonight and after that they are going back to the factory.
  • Q: Do I have to buy a suit for my swimmer?
    A: Yes- team suits are required. All the other items for sale here are optional, but each swimmer must purchase a suit in order to represent Mac Swim.
  • Q: Same question, but about towels, hoodies,etc. 
    A: Definitely not. The extras are just that – extras. They make the team look “pro” on the deck, but they are by no means required. That said, we do have certain minimums to meet for each item we are buying to get these prices.
  • Q: Can I order additional items for myself, my other kids, my friends, and my co-workers? 
    A: Absolutely. Everyone on your shopping list would enjoy some Mac Swim Swag.
  • Q: Where can I order again?
    A: Right here.
As usual, if you have any questions please email me at joey@macswimatx.com.
