Registration Coming on Saturday, May 12th, Mark Your Calendars

Registration for the 2018 Season will be held on Saturday, May 12th from 1-4 pm at the Kentlands Clubhouse. The event includes a season kick-off get together and cook-out on the Clubhouse Lawn during and after registration.  The Spring General Membership Meeting will be held during registration, at 1:30 PM.  Please plan to attend to sign up for the team, to try on and purchase swim suits and spirit wear, to get your Kingfish welcome bag, and to meet the 2018 coaches.  After you register, join fellow Kingfish families on the clubhouse lawn for an afternoon of fun activities.  Membership dues will increase to $150 per swimmer with a $30 per family concessions fee for 2018.  If Kingfish dues present a financial hardship for your family, please reach out to any one of the Kingfish Board members (contact information may be found on the Kingfish website).  Online registration will also open May 12th.


Parent Volunteering

Kingfish swim team volunteer positions officially open on registration day, May 12th, at which time you can sign up for the jobs you want.  This is a first come first serve sign up so please come to registration and sign up in person! If you have any questions about any of the jobs or the volunteer commitment, please see our volunteer coordinators, Eileen Kao and Mary Chu at registration.


Personalized Caps

Saturday, May 12th will also be the deadline for ordering personalized Kingfish swim caps.  The caps require a lengthy lead time, so orders must be placed on or before the deadline date.  If you would like a personalized cap for your Kingfish, please contact our merchandise reps, Angel Godman angelagodman@gmail.com  or Bhaval Shah bhaval@me.com .


Call-Out for Key Position Shadows

Are you interested in learning more about one of the key parent volunteer roles?  We are looking for parents to shadow any of our key positions during the upcoming season.  Please consider shadowing these positions this season to learn more – without these key positions filled we cannot run the team.  Please contact Meredith Fogle at Meredith@meredithfogle.com or Tara Hofmann at hofmanntara@yahoo.com if you are interested.


Sponsorship Opportunities

The Kingfish are once again offering opportunities for team sponsorship.  This year, all sponsors who commit by April 30 will have their logo included on our registration marketing pieces and flyers. Please contact Meredith Fogle at meredith@meredithfogle.com for more information about sponsoring the team.


Anthem Performers Needed

Would your talented Kingfish like to perform the National Anthem at any of our home meets?  We are putting the schedule together now.  Please contact Meredith Fogle at meredith@meredithfogle.com to let her know if your swimmer would like to perform.
