(this is a team hosted event)



It's time to declare your swimmer(s) for championships!!!! Our swimmers have worked so hard all season and championships is the culmination of all their efforts. If you haven't been to champs before, you are in for an awesome (and hot) time!! Nowhere is our team spirit more evident than at champs. It's such a special time for swimmers and parents and we can't wait to see you there! If you are new and concerned that champs may be "too much" for your swimmer (or you) PLEASE don't be worried. Champs is a FUN and team oriented event. It's just like our dual meet swim meets with 13 more teams! Just talk to one of our veteran parents and they can tell you how awesome it is.

All swimmers who have attended at least 2 meets during the season and have times on record for events (this DOES include DQs) are eligible and invited to attend championships. If you have any questions about eligibility, please talk to Coach Paul, Coach Vanessa or Britta.
PLEASE declare your swimmer asap!! The deadline is Wednesday, July 7th but the sooner the better. It's very important that you either accept or decline the championship events so we can submit an accurate roster to the league. The process is just like declaring your swimmer for a swim meet. Even if you are not attending championships, we need to know so please "decline" the event.
WHEN DECLARING FOR CHAMPS,  YOU NEED TO CHOOSE A MAX OF 5 OUT OF THE 6 EVENTS OFFERED! (see agenda below for schedule).  Only choose events you will be attending.
