Summer SPA Awards Banquet
Each year SPA holds an awards banquet in early August at the end of Long Course season. The banquet is catered, and swimmers and children 5 and under can eat for free. Other siblings and parents are charged for the food, and the charges are added to your SPA account. The SPA board will send out information about the summer banquet sometime during the summer session.
All swimmers are welcome to attend the banquet, whether or not they will be getting an award.
Dress for the banquet is "summer formal". Girls usually wear dresses, and boys usually wear dress pants or shorts and a nice shirt. Parents usually dress a bit more casual.
The summer banquet includes:
Recognition of all swimmers who have made at least one B time or above. Swimmers will be recognized by groups, and are placed in groups by the fastest time they achieved that year. Therefore, if a swimmer achieves several BB times and one A time, that swimmer will be recognized with the A group.
Special recognition of certain swimmers from the coaches for swimmers of the year, most improved swimmer, hardest worker, etc.
A business meeting with the SPA board to vote on new board members for the upcoming year and to vote on other decision made by the board.
Important Note: Swimmers who do not swim for SPA during the summer session do not have access to the SPA website and email system, and therefore are not invited to the end of the year banquet.
