Here are the notes for the week…



REMINDER - NO PRACTICE tonight - Friday, January 26. Good luck to our swimmers at the OMNI Quad Meet

Monday - Fridday: Normal practice times

Thursday: NORMAL PRACTICE & Annual Team Meeting - HS Library @6:30.

Friday: NORMAL PRACTICE & Meet set-up



Please plan to have at least one parent attend our annual team meeting on Thursday. It will be held in the high school library at 6:30pm and usually takes less than an hour. We discuss club updates and outlook for the future as well as elect new Board of Directors members. It is also a great opportunity to ask questions. Having high attendance at this meeting is important. 

Let me know if you are interested in learning more about becoming a board member


Volunteering is still open. It is crucial to have all roles filled to run a successful meet. If you have time or family/friends willing to help beyond your 2 point minimum, we would be grateful. Roles of critical importance are the announcer (a document attached here to explain), head timer & lane timers for the afternoon session (I can train anyone not comfortable one night during practice), & the timing system operator (some experience helpful). A meet marshal for the afternoon would also be helpful.

Updated volunteer time shifts and more information will come out early next week.



Sign Up is open for the high school boys sectionals meet at the Hudson Middle School. For this, we are going to need 24 timers and a couple other positions. I have updated the times. The meet will start at 1pm. There is usually a timers meeting around 12:30pm. The meet should be wrapped up by 3:30pm from what I am told. We need to fill all the positions ASAP. Please consider helping out.


RFSC Product Orders

We have a product page available with River City Stitch. You place and pay for your individual orders online. I will pick up all the orders when they are done and have them at the pool. We are doing group orders a few times a year to help keep costs to a minimum. And the team will not be taking any commission on the items, so you are getting great prices!

Some products are embroidered, some are screen print. Some products also allow for personalization. Click on items to get more info about them! We have tank tops, t-shirts, hoodies, sweatpants, bags, stadium seats (logo will be on it, although it is not on the website), car decals, etc. Most of the shirts are lightweight performance shirts which are a great option for our HOT pool :)

Orders are due WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 31 and should be available at the pool by Feb 16. Get your orders in today!!



Invoices for our March 1st billing will be sent out by Monday. Please be sure you have a up to date credit card or ACH on file in your account so balances can be automatically deducted on Thursday.


Thank you and have a great weekend!
