TEAM SUIT FITTINGS APRIL 22nd and 23rd...DON'T FORGET: We have scheduled two team suit fitting dates- Sunday, Aprill 22nd, and Monday, April 23rd at Central Park Aquatic Center-10371 Central Park Drive, Manassas 20110. Click HERE for information on team suit sales and what to do if you can't make it on one of these dates.
VOLUNTEERING REMINDERS and OFFICIALS CLINICS: Volunteer signups are open for REGISTERED families only. If you are interested in training to become a Stroke and Turn Judge or other Official, the PWSL has scheduled FREE training clinics. One is on Wednesday, May 30th from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at Occoquan Bible Church. The other is on Saturday, June 2nd from 9:00 a.m. to Noon at Sudley Club. (Attend one or the other, not both.) If you are unable to make either of these two sessions but are very interested in going through the process, let us know. Scott, our Head Referee can work with you for some in-house training. Remember to sign up on the volunteer lists for these clinics if you go. If you have questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to Scott.
TEAM SPONSORSHIPS: We are still searching for Team Sponsors! Details on this program and all the wonderful benefits can be found HERE, along with contact information for our Sponsor Coordinator if you need help. Gold Sponsors get their business logo on the back of our team T-shirt, and at the rate registration is going, we may give out over 300 shirts this year!
MEET SIGN-OUTS, ROSTER LISTS and SMS SETUP: Meet sign-outs will be available in May when we are closer to our final swimmer rosters, so keep an eye out for information in the next few weeks. We will also be sending out swimmer rosters after May 1 to allow families to confirm we have swimmer information correct and allow time for changes. Also, as we get closer to the season starting, this would be a good time to make sure you have your family account set up to get Text Alerts on your phone (SMS settings). When things get going, we use Text Alerts as our first defense against weather cancelations and other urgent notices. We have a tutorial on SMS for Text Alerts HERE under the Parent tab to help you make certain this is set up correctly on your account. This is particularly important if you are new to the team. Please follow the directions exactly as they are written. DO NOT change anything else we use for tracking your swimmer (Roster, Location, etc.)
REMINDER ABOUT WEBSITE ACCESS: While much of our site is available to anyone, a lot of it is hidden and available ONLY to Active families. Make sure when you are visiting the website, you are in the habit of logging on so you can view all of the content. This is especially important to view the sub-menus under the Parent tab. If you are new to the team, you should have received login information after registration. If you don't have that information, you can follow the prompts from the sign-in page for help, or click HERE for help. If you are still stuck, send us an email. Know that the Administrator does not have the ability to set or email you a password.
REMEMBER: As we get closer and closer to our first summer practice on May 29th, please continue to watch your email and check the website for updates and news postings. If you have ANY questions, concerns, confusion about ANYTHING, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. If your time with the team has come to an end, email us back and let us know. We will remove you from our active family lists.
