Schedule Modification for Thursday at Redwood and NO PRACTICE on Friday

This was advertised as the last Redwood Home meet of the season, but as luck would have it one more has been added to their schedule for next week.  However, the end is in sight!  This Thursday's meet is a BIG one.  Please stay with your swimmers until they are checked in at the gate.  Here is the modified practice schedule:

Practice Group Start Time End Time
8 & Unders (Gold and Blue) 6:00 6:30
9-10s (Gold and Blue) 6:30 7:15
11 & Ups and Early 11+'s 7:05 8:10

Additionally, ALL practices at COM and REDWOOD are cancelled this Friday for Good Friday.

Final Reminder:  Volunteer Sign Ups Will Lock on April 1st

Thank you to everyone who has signed up for your points!  Our jobs look very good...although there are still some jobs left to fill.  Do take a look under the "Events/Jobs" tab if you still need points. 

Remember, we need you signed up by April 1st so that we can move on to other areas of Tidalwaves team business.  For information on how to change your volunteer commitment after April 1st, please check out our volunteer FAQ's.
