River City Championships July 23 – 25, 2010 @ Cecil Aquatic Center

To compete in River City Championships a swimmer must swim in at least 3 dual meets and have swam in the individual event at least once in a dual meet to compete in that event during championships.  There are NO exceptions to these 2 rules. Please remember that volunteers are necessary for both the dual meets and championships to make the meets possible.  Without parent help River City would not be possible.

Registration forms and the 2010 Schedule are all available on the River City Website www.rcsl.org.

We will be handling registration for River City a little different this year so please follow the instructions in this email.

Existing Amberjax Swimmers who swam on the Amberjax River City team last year all you have to do is print out a new registration form available on the River City website and turn that in to me with a check for the $25 River City registration fee.  (Please do not include any other swimming fees or dues in the check and make the check payable to Episcopal Amberjax).  For swimmers at EHS you can turn this in to me any day except Thursdays.  For swimmers at Cecil Field please turn everything in to Allen and for swimmers at JCDS I will be at JCDS during practice collecting registration forms on the following days Thursday, April 29 and Monday, May 3.  If you are not able to turn in your registration on either of these days please contact me and we can make other arrangements.  All registration forms must be accompanied with the registration fees.  You will not be allowed to compete in a meet until your registration is complete.

Existing Amberjax Swimmers who did NOT swim on the Amberjax River City team last yeareverything is the same as above with the addition that you must turn in a copy of your birth certificate with your registration form and fee.   If you swam on another River City team last year you will also need to turn in a Change of Team Form (available on the River City Website www.rcsl.org) You do not need to have the form signed by your old team I will take care of that just fill out everything else.  All forms and fees must be turned in before you will be able to compete in a meet.

Swimmers starting for the 2010 River City Season that swam on the Amberjax River City team last year I will need a new Registration form with the $25 River City Registration fee plus the US Swimming Seasonal registration fee of $33.50 and the first month’s dues which are $65 per month for the first swimmer and $50 per month for each additional swimmer from the same family.  (This is for the 3 month of the River City League May, June & July if you decide to join our year round team, and we hope you do, the monthly dues will change to our year round rates in August) All registration fees and the first month’s dues must be turned in with the registration forms before you will be allowed to compete in a meet.  If you will be practicing at EHS you can turn the forms in to me any day except Thursdays, if you will be going to Cecil Field you can turn everything in to Allen and if you will be practicing at JCDS I will be there on April 29 & May 3 collecting registrations. (If you cannot make it to JCDS on either of those 2 dates please contact me and we will make other arrangements)

Swimmers starting for the 2010 River City Season that did NOT swim on the Amberjax River City team last yeareverything is the same as above with the addition that you must turn in a copy of your birth certificate with your registration form and fees.  If you swam on another River City team last year you will also need to turn in a Change of Team Form (available on the River City Website www.rcsl.org) You do not need to have the form signed by your old team I will take care of that just fill out everything else.  All registration fees and the first month’s dues must be turned in with the registration forms before you will be allowed to compete in a meet. 

 

All Swimmersregistration packets must be turned in by Friday, May 7.  Any registrations after that date will need to contact me and will be worked out on an individual basis.  Also, in the top corner of your registration form please write what size t-shirt your swimmer would like and don’t forget to specify youth or adult sizes. I would also like to try and make signing up for meets a little easier.  Since we are at 3 different locations I believe the easiest way to make sure no one gets left out and you get to swim the events you want would be to email me directly by the Sunday before a meet.  For instance if you plan to attend the meet on May 27 at Deercreek I will need to know by Sunday, May 23.  If you just want to say you’re attending and have your Coach pick your events then you can just say that otherwise if you want to pick your events then please specify which 3 events you would like to swim for that meet.  (You can only swim 3 individual events in a dual meet and 1 relay.  Relays will be posted after the start of a meet when I see who has showed up) If you do not plan to attend I would love an email saying that just so I know that no one is overlooked but if I don’t hear from you by the Sunday before then I will just assume you are not attending that meet.  Meet events alternate between Schedule 1 and Schedule 2.  Our first meet will be Schedule 1 events a list of both Schedule 1 & 2 events is attached to this email.  If you have any questions please feel free to call or email me and I will be happy to answer them 710-5400 or ssmithers@akostech.com.  Unless you are at Cecil please remember to turn in all your paperwork to me that way I can be sure it does not get misplaced.

I am looking forward to a fun and exciting River City Season and with everyone’s’ help I am sure we will have one.

Coach Shannon
