Greetings Franklin Family!

Congrats goes out to the girls team who were able to secure their 5th County Championship in-a-row, due to some gutsy performances made by quite a few individuals. Our Franklin boys also had a solid afternoon, filled with tons of seasonal best times. Regardless of the sting of defeat, I’m incredibly proud of these boys and how they competed throughout the day.

Excellence doesn’t happen by accident and these athletes are committed to getting better each and every day. As a coach, I can’t help but be proud of all of their responses to adversity and being challenged. We will get better and I’m honored to be a part of it all. “You don’t get what you wish for, you get what you work for.” With that said, we’re back to work this week!
  • Monday (12/23) – 7-11am at FCMS (yes, the middle school due to some maintenance being done tomorrow at the HS)
  • Tuesday (12/24)- 7-10am at the HS
  • Wednesday (12/25) – Merry Christmas
  • Thursday (12/26) – 1-4pm
  • Friday (12 / 27) – 6:30-8:30am – Athletes will depart immediately after the practice to attend the North Central HS Panther Invite, which will begin at 11:30 and will likely conclude at 1:30pm. There will be 5 swimmers allowed per event, which is more than typical, so majority of athletes will be swimming. Those swimmers not swimming in the meet will NOT be required to attend this meet and may leave at 8:30am. The kids who are swimming will be notified by Tuesday so that they can prepare!
  • Saturday (12/28) – 7-10am

I hope to have the training calendar out to the kids via google classroom sometime this evening.

Saturday Meet

Posted by Franklin Community Swimming & Diving at Dec 20, 2019 11:57AM PST ( 0 Comments )

According to the coach…tomorrow’s meet at Indian Creek is set to start at 9:00 with an approximate end time of 12:00. See you at the pool for some FAST, FUN swimming!


Franklin Swim & Dive Family,

You know the drill! There’s been a 2HR delay called by Dr. Clendening, which means our AM practice will be pushed back by two hours. As of now, we will be practicing from 7:45-9:05am.

If there is a cancellation, we will know before 5:30am, and this will be communicated immediately. Additionally, we will be given a time to practice (if possible) later on in the AM. Generally speaking, it’s in the afternoon.

Stay warm!



Franklin Family,

As we approach Round 2 of Monday’s snow, Dr. Clendening and Bill Doty have decided that the school will close at 5pm tonight. All athletic practices will end at that time, which means that parents should plan on picking up FCHSSnD athletes at 5pm promptly.

It is their effort that athletes begin making their way home before the roads begin to get too bad.

We will get the athletes out of the water at 4:55pm, and they’ll be expected to get dressed rather quickly.

Thanks for your understanding and your patience with the weather!
