October Pool Closure

You may have seen some notices around the pool regarding the work that will be done in the locker rooms on October 10 & 11th. AAA will be able to hold afternoon workouts on these days but we will not have access to the restrooms or locker rooms. Please plan accordingly. The entire facility will be closed to the public and only available to our group. On these days, please enter the pool area from the side gate near the outdoor pool. Thursday we will have access to gym locker rooms at the high school. Friday there is no school on the AHS campus so the only restrooms available on Friday are the restrooms in Memorial Park. Please note we will not hold morning workout on Thursday, October 10th but should be back to normal for morning workout on Saturday, October 12th.


Team Picture Day, October 24th@ 4:30

Mark you calendar and don’t miss being a part of our team picture day!

Please wear your YELLOW ARMADA T-Shirt & dark pants/shorts.

We will devote the day to our team photo and not hold a workout. The team photo typically takes about  an hour to complete. We will take the entire team pic first, then take a picture of  sub swim groups: Stroke School-Blue Group-Gold Group, Juniors, Seniors. Swimmers can also take individual pictures by the pool and buddy or small group pictures as well. Order forms will be distributed soon at the pool.


Officials Clinic, October 12th

The next Officials Clinic will take place on October 12th. Remember, officials receive a 20% discount on membership dues and are instrumental in the success of our team. All teams are required to provide officials based on the number of swimmers entered in a meet. Without our parent volunteer officials our team will receive hefty fines.
