Parent Information

We covered lots of information at our fall parent meeting. Dive into the Armada Parent Handbook and learn all about the team, coaches and goals and standards for each swim group. You can also view the Power Point Presentation from the links below. We posted video of each talk. You can view them on our Facebook group page. Just search Albany Armada from your face book search bar and we will add you to the group. FYI - it's a private group and your personal facebook account WILL NOT be connected to the group. You'll  be able to view what we post and like and comment as usual.
