Winter Challenge THIS Weekend!

  • The Winter Challenge is right around the corner! We still have jobs that have not been filled and we need everyone’s help for the meet to run smoothly. Please remember that these meets are for the swimmers, we do this for them and if we don’t get all our volunteer positions filled, the swimmers are the ones who suffer. 
  • Job positions that need filled:
    • Clerk of Course Assistant: All sessions – WILL TRAIN ON THE JOB, no experience necessary
    • Meet Director Assistant: All sessions – WILL TRAIN ON THE JOB, no experience necessary
    • Scoreboard Operator: All sessions – WILL TRAIN ON THE JOB, no experience necessary
    • Timers: All sessions – WILL TRAIN ON THE JOB, no experience necessary
  • Also, please consider donating food items to Hospitality and/or Concessions. These jobs are great ways to get hours at home!
  • Warm up times for the Winter Challenge will be sent later in the week, so keep an eye out!

Sickness

  • There is a nasty virus going around and to keep it from spreading to our swimmers, please keep your child home if they have flu symptoms: fever, diarrhea, vomiting, chills, lightheadedness, fainting, or other flu-like symptoms.
  • Swimmers should only return to practice 24 hours after symptoms disappear. Keep in mind that viruses and bacteria can still spread in the water and we don’t want a plague to blast through our pool.
  • If your child has questions regarding expectations around sickness, please have them talk to their coach.
