Club Policy Reminders
I wanted to highlight a few of our policies that some of you may have been unaware of or have forgotten over time.
1. Swimmers are to be picked up within 15 minutes of the posted ending time of practice. Fines will be assessed for those swimmers who are not picked up by the appointed time. If you are running late please send a text message to me. This small courtesy goes a long way.
2. Athletes in their second season are expected to compete in meets. Athletes that do not compete will be charged a higher training fee for those months.
3. Event selection for all meet entries is the sole discretion of the coaching staff. If there are budgetary concerns please let me know and those requests will be honored.
CSC Spring Fling, Carmel High School, May 4th-6th
Our entry has been sent and received. As of this morning we have not received confirmation that we will be in the meet. If we are, I will include all pertinent information in next week's email.
NASA Off The Blocks, Northridge High School, May 5th
Our entry has been sent and received. You can locate your swimmer's events by logging into our website or by using your OnDeck app. All information for this meet will be included in next week's email.
IA May Invitational, Rolfs Aquatic Center ND, May 11th-13th
The deadline to commit to this meet is tonight Sunday April 22nd. This meet is being held in long course meters. If your swimmer is a returning athlete and they did not sign up for the CSC or NASA meet they need to compete in this meet to avoid the higher training fees for the month of May. If you have already committed your swimmer their events have been selected.
A Group 2 or Group 3 annual membership plus all the other associated fees with our membership -- spirit wear, meet surcharges, technology fees, concession stand/hospitality fees, USA Swimming-- is just under $550 for an entire year. (A Group 1 annual membership is about $100 less.) If you were able to sell two of the the Premiere+ adds it could easily pay for a whole year of swimming including meet entry fees!
Selling a one year ad to one company could earn you anywhere from $50 to almost $500. Here is the link for more information. Another easy way to earn credit for your swim club account is to hang our recruiting posters out in the public. For every poster you hang you will receive a $5 credit up to $25. Once you hang the poster post a pic of it on your Facebook page (or other social site) and tag the club.

Below is our spring/summer meet schedule. Swimmers wanting to compete will need to commit to those meets. If you are only given the option of "yes" or "no" when committing please leave a message in the available notes section of what days you would like to attend.
