Hello Lightning Swimmers and Families,
Just a reminder that our Volunteer Shift Sign-up opens tomorrow morning at 6am. We have reduced the number of volunteer shifts per family down to 5 this season. We ask that you chose the date and times that you can volunteer and then chose the job. This will alleviate you having to make any changes to your shifts.You must also choose 2 of your shifts to be at the KCI Meet (June 22-23) or the State Meet (July 27-29.) Our Volunteer Coordinators will be monitoring the shifts that each family signs up for to be sure that everyone has meet the requirements.
Please note that your swimmers will not be allowed to swim at the first meet on Saturday, June 2nd if you have not signed up for all of your 5 volunteer shifts by Friday, May 25th.
Here is the link to the Online Registration Instruction page that will provide you with the information of how to sign up for your shifts.

First Day of Practice – Monday, May 14th at the Ranch House Pool
We are so excited to finally kick off the 2018 season this Monday! It looks like it will be a cooler evening so we will not be getting in the pool!
Coach Toby and the rest of the coaching staff are ready for the season as the returning back to back South Jeffco Swim League Champions! The first couple of weeks of practice can be pretty crazy when we can only swim in the evenings and have about 250 swimmers. We will be asking for parents and swimmers to pay close attention to your child's practice times and the team activities during this time.
Our first night will be a little different this year. We will start each practice time with some cookies, Coach Toby will speak to the swimmers and their families, introduce his coaches, and share the format/routine of the practices.
Here is our practice schedule:
Monday, May 14th through Thursday, May 17th
Monday, May 21st through Wednesday, May 23rd
8 & under (new swimmers) ~ 5:00 - 5:45pm
8 & under (returning swimmers) ~ 5:45 - 6:30pm
9 & 10 year-old swimmers ~ 6:30 - 7:30pm
11 & older swimmers~ 7:30 - 8:30pm
Please do not hesitate to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
