Team Caps and Magnets
Team caps and magnets have been ordered and are on their way from California, every swimmer will receive one of each when they arrive. Team caps and magnets will be passed out at practice when they arrive.
Now that the first week of practice is under our belt parents are asked to drop their swimmers off at practice at the front door to the facility but are not permitted on deck or in the stands. If you were not able to attend the back to swim information meeting last Sunday, we highly encourage you to read through our slideshow so all swimmers are able to follow our team protocols. You can access the slideshow by logging into our website and selecting the 2021-2022 Protocols tab at the top of our homepage.
When entering the Renaissance please enter the code 2230 slowly and patiently, when you enter the wrong number, it will take a moment to reset and many have been entering the code over and over which is causing a back up to get through the gate.
The coaches and swimmers had a great first week of practice and are looking forward to week two!
