Hello Seminole Families - It’s time to start thinking about summer! The Boosters have been hard at work planning the best season ever. Here is your pre-season information. If you’re new, or just have any additional questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Heidi Updegrove or me directly.
- Open on Monday, 4/2/2018. Please go to our Team Unify Site .
- Payment information will be provided at the end of the registration process. Please note that registration payment is completely independent of the volunteer deposit that is required. More on that requirement below.
- If you have any questions, contact Heidi Updegrove. (email@example.com) Thank you, Heidi, for making online registration so simple!
*Please note that pool dues also need to be paid in full for Team participation.
Suits and Apparel
Our team’s Fit Night will be held on April 24 from 4-7 pm at Simply Swimming, 6649 University Ave in Middleton. Purchases can also be made online – we will send out the link once it is available.
In addition to our incredible suit and apparel selection, this year we’re also offering car magnets with our SEM shark fin on them! Cost is 1/$10 or 2/$15, available at Fit Night - Get ‘em while they’re hot!
Our full 2018 Swim & Dive meet schedule is now posted on the All City League website: https://allcityswimdive.org/schedules/seminole/
Other key dates to note:
- Kick-off Pizza Party: May 31
- Noah’s Ark: July 11 (tentative)
- All-City Week: July 23-28
Practice times have not been set in stone yet, but we don’t anticipate any major shifts from last years’ schedule, found here.
This year we will once again be offering Shark Bites, our program for kids who have basic swimming skills and are interested in swim team, but are not quite sure they’re ready. Please note that Shark Bites is not a substitution for swimming lessons. Shark Bites can transition to 8&Unders at any time during the season if they feel they are ready to move up, and Shark Bites can swim in any of our swim meets, but meets are not required. Shark Bites are full members of the Seminole Swim & Dive Team!
We need volunteers to run our home swim meets. Each swim family must complete at least three (3) volunteer shifts at home meets throughout the season. Volunteer sign-up will be available online when we get closer to the season.
This year’s home swim meets are:
- Saturday, June 9
- Saturday, June 23
- Saturday, June 30
- Saturday, July 14
A $100 volunteer check (payable to Seminole Swim & Dive Booster Club) per family is required as a deposit before your child(ren) can sign up for any meets. This check is held until you complete your required three (3) volunteer shifts. Once your shifts are completed, this check is destroyed and not cashed. (Please note that Dive Team volunteer requirements are handled separately. If you have a diver only, please direct questions to Heidi or myself.)
Again, this check is completely independent of Registration Fees. It should be sent to:Heidi Updegrove - Seminole Sharks 5794 Verde View Rd. Fitchburg, WI 53711
New this year, we are offering a unique sponsorship opportunity at our home meets. For the cost of $500, sponsors will receive the following:
- Logo and live link on our Team Unify site for the entire season
- Space to hang a banner at all home swim meets.
- Logo on the heat sheets of all home swim meets.
Please contact me if you’d like to learn more.
That's all for now. Again, please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions.
I can’t wait to see everyone again!
p.s. If you are no longer interested in Seminole Swim/Dive Teams and would like to be removed from this email list, please let me know. (But we hope to still see you at the pool!)
