12 and Under State Update (2/23-2/25)

Our final draft of entries will be sent out on Monday, February 19th, at around 10am. The entries must be submitted online by 6:00pm. This will be our third entry draft sent out and by that time we are really hoping to have very few changes. Hopefully, we will have some additions following Regional Championships!

We will practice as a group (12 and Under State Participants) from 6-7:30pm on Monday-Friday. On Thursday night we will have a pasta diner following practice from 7:30-8:30pm in the Shark Room.

Please CLICK HERE to view the meet host landing page for 12 and Under State Championships.

 

 

13 and Over State Championships Update (3/1-3/4)

Please remember that this meet is for athletes that have qualified. Even though we are the host, all of our swimmers are not entitled to participate.

We are looking great on volunteers so far, but we could really use help Thursday/Friday morning with timing. Those are the toughest sessions to get folks to volunteer, so any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

We will have a draft of individual entries and relays coming out this week. Please make sure if you receive that to read it and make sure information is correct.

 

 

LC 2018 Registration

Our Long Course Season will begin on Monday, 4/2/2018 and end on 8/1/2018. In order to participate we must receive the registration form/payment authorization from each family. This will be our second season using the RecPlex for standard participation billing. We are hoping that there will be no more mistakes or issues from this point.

Please remember that athletes are enrolling for full season now and that, although you can pay monthly, your participation is for the season. If your athlete arrives to practice on 4/2, but your family has not submitted a billing authorization form, they will not be allowed to participate. Please do not put the coaching staff in this position.

Forms can be turned in at the front desk, where they will be placed in Luke Towry's mailbox. You can also give them to Coach Luke or Coach Dave. Forms may also be given to the attendant at the AquaDesk where they will be placed on Coach Luke's desk. Please follow up with any questions. 

 

Click Here to be taken to the registration page on the website, where you can download the PDF of our registration form/billing authorization.

 

We are in the final stages of discussing roster promotion throughout the team. Athletes changing groups will be notified by 2/21 of their new roster group.
