Velocity December Home Meet

We are excited to be hosting our first home meet of the season! Some teams had to back out of the meet and we have condensed the meet to just one session, Sunday, December 5th. Unfortunately, when the meet was restructured, the volunteer list and meet entries were deleted. Please sign up again! We had over 65 swimmers signed up and we would like to see even more. This is our only fall home meet, so we would like every swimmer to be signed up.  

Volunteers - we need you! 

New to being a competitive swim parent? Don't worry about signing up for something you've never done before, we train our volunteers on the day of the meet and try to pair you up with an experienced swim parent. Volunteering your time is a great way to support Velocity, meet other parents on the team and be a part of the action on meet day!
