Questions about Swim Meet Sign-up Procedure:

Swimmers do NOT sign up for swim meets.  We do, however, request that Club Swimmers who plan to swim the first two High School swim meets (Dec. 4th and Dec. 13th) notify Coach Launi at [email protected] so she will be sure to enter them in those meets. 

Meet entries will be posted prior to each meet so swimmers can verify whether they are swimming in a meet and what events.  If the meet is designated as “All Swimmers” , then everyone will be entered.  If the meet is designated “varsity” or “jv”, it is at the coach’s discretion who will attend that meet.


We have a handful of apparel items leftover from our recent bulk order. Swimmers who missed the previous deadline can still receive a silicone cap @ $12.00 ea.  Also, there are extra grey team tees for purchase by parents in limited sizes for $8.00 ea.

Email your order to [email protected] while supplies last.


Thank you to everyone who has signed up for our first home swim meet on December 4th.  Please be sure to check the time you report to work your shift a few days before the meet in case of any last minute adjustments.  (Shift times are posted on the website where you signed up for the job.)  If you have any questions, please contact Barb Swartz at [email protected].
