Dear VJO Swimmers and Parents,
Thank you to all that attended our team bowling day on Sunday. We hope everyone had as much fun as the coaches did. It turns out we have some pretty good bowlers on our swim team. We would also like to give a special thank you to Diane Powell who helped get this event organized for us.
We also hope everyone enjoyed our first long course practice of the season last Friday. Thank you for all the swimmer and parent help with setting up and taking down of the lane lines. We hope to be able to get more long course practice time in the future months.

Please join us for our semi-annual VJO General Membership Meeting! The meeting will be held Wednesday April 25th from 5:30-7:00pm in the portables. Please note this is a revised time. In addition to going over the dates of the upcoming year, discussing practice and meet expectations, and reviewing the required hours for parental involvement in home meets, we will be voting on two new board positions.

Starting Friday April 27th Tuffy’s Group will have two practice times 5:30-6:30 and 6:30-7:30pm. This means the group will no longer swim at one time. This practice change will continue through the entire summer. As a reminder this will be effective Friday April 27th.
