Waves News 4/23- New Meet Commitments

New Meets and Commitments
I am trying to add 2 meets. We are definitely into a 1 day Short Course meet May 20th at St Johns Prep.
We may be able to get in a June 1-3rd meet at MIT. 

 Both Meets need commitments from you ASAP. The entry will be sent tomorrow, Tuesday April 24th, at 8:30 pm. Anyone not commited will not be entered.
Our Annual Swim-A-Thon was a great success. Thank you very much to all the swimmers who participated and the parents who came to support and count laps!!!  We will keep the Swim-A-Thon portal open until Monday, April 23, 2018.

 We have already smashed our total from last year and are getting closer to our team goal of $10,000!   It's a great opportunity for the Waves to raise money for three great causes. The Jimmy V. Foundation for Cancer Research, The South Shore Initiative (Waves Boosters and Travel Trips), and lastly to the USA Swimming Swim-A-Thon FoundationWe will have prizes for the Top Dollar Performer and the Top Roster Group Performers.  The Top Dollar Performer (individual who raises the most funds) will receive a $75.00 gift card to Swim Outlet!  The Roster Group that raises the most funds has a choice of A Chipotle Party, a Pizza Party, or an Ice Cream Sundae Party for their group held here at the Weymouth Club.  Just click on the link at the top of our Waves homepage to support all our great causes. 

If you are writing a check for the Swim-A-Thon, please make it payable to “South Shore Initiative”.  SSI is the Weymouth Club’s non-profit group which provides financial assistance to Swim, Dance and Tennis.  Thank you for your donation!
