Velocity Home Meet 

  • Our formal meet is scheduled for May 22nd 
    • Our spring challenge had 90+ swimmers participating to help us prepare for our formal meet on may 22nd.     We used this practice meet to allow experienced swimmers how to guide less experienced swimmers,  (there were so many cool moments of leadership that were witnessed!   Also, it was a chance for less experienced swimmers to learn how to be responsible for their events AND for lots of new parents to learn how to help at a meet.  We are sooo grateful for all the work everyone put in!   
  • If you haven’t gotten a chance to get involved in making these events happen, we would love to have you help at our formal meet on May 22nd!   Please click here for the sign up   .
    • We highly encourage and expect all swimmers to attend home swim meets if possible, and parents to volunteer as able.
