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.
