November Board Meeting

  • The November Board of Directors meeting is tomorrow, Tuesday November 21st from 7 to 9 pm at Mount Baker Imaging: Women’s Diagnostic Center off Northwest Ave. As always, this meeting is public and open for all who are interested to attend. 

Proper After Practice Attire

  • The Pacific Northwest version of fall is here, and swimmers are still leaving the pool as if it's July - shorts, t-shirts, and wet hair with their swimsuit still on.  While the weather may not be directly responsible for kids getting sick, it's still a part of the equation. 
  • Swimmers are expected to be proactive toward their success, which includes how they take care of themselves out of the water. They need to leave the aquatic center properly dressed - long pants, dry/covered head, and a sweatshirt/jacket - to minimize their odds of getting sick. 
  • Swimmers will be asked to go back inside and change if they are not wearing the proper outside attire. 
  • Note - leaving the pool with a parka over your swimsuit, though better than just leaving in your suit, does not count as sufficiently dressed.
