BRIDLEWOOD MEET SIGN-OUTS DUE TODAY If you are a Competitive swimmer who will not be participating in our home meet against Bridlewood, we need your sign-out by tonight, Sunday, June 6th. Instructions on how to sign out of a  Swim Meet are   HERE on the Parent tab under    Sign out for a Meet. This page also provides instructions on how to sign back in and other scenarios. It's important parents/families fully understand this process.
TEAMWORK MAKES THE DREAMWORK! Cleanup after Time Trials was incredible!. Everyone swooped in to breakdown tents, move furniture, get stuff to the shed. 15 minutes after last splash, the HOA could open the pool, and many of us were already heading home. This is exactly what we need every home meet. Let's do it again this week.  
TIME TRIALS VOLUNTEER RECONCILIATION This week we will credit families for their volunteer work at Time Trials. As the season progresses, please periodically check your volunteer hour balance. If you think something is wrong, please reach out to our volunteer coordinator Kara. You can email her at [email protected].
PRINCE WILLIAM SWIM LEAGUE RESULTS Starting next week, the  PWSL will begin putting out weekly league-wide results that include Top 15 Relays, Top 25 Times, etc. These results usually come out on Sunday afternoons and will be posted  HERE on the  PWSL Results page under the Meets/Visitors tab. See where swimmers stack up against other teams and get a sneak peek on the next week's competition.
LIFEGUARDS FOR PRACTICES AND MEETS  We are still looking for some lifeguards who would like to guard at morning practices our at our home meets. If your swimmer is a guard and would like to make some extra $$, or you know someone, please have them send us an email with their contact information [email protected].
POOL ACCESS Please remember If you are a Wellington HOA member family, or a Non-Resident Pool Member (NRPM) family, please badge your swimmers in using your electronic pool access card with the scanner at the Lifeguard desk. If you are not an HOA or NRPM family, please stop by the desk and let the Lifeguards on duty know your child(ren) are there for swim practice and sign them in on the sign-in sheets. Once your swimmer is in the pool compound, parents are reminded they are not to remain on the pool deck this year.
SECOND WEEK CRAZIES The second week of practices we will still be practicing in the evenings only. Please continue to be understanding of the Coaching staff as they get to know your swimmers and learn their capabilities. Please keep an eye on the website and your email for information and updates.
