TEAM BANQUET:  Our team banquet will be held Sunday, May 20th, 2-4 p.m., in the upstairs Conference Center at Metro Appliances.   This will be a fun celebration in a bright, beautiful location for ALL swimmers and parents as we recognize athletes from each practice group for their accomplishments this past year.  Our coaches have been working diligently on awards and we hope to see all swimmers there.  Our graduating seniors will also be recognized as they share words of encouragement with the younger athletes.

Refreshments will be served.  We will not be selling tickets to the event this year and simply ask that you consider giving a suggested donation of $5 per person at the event.  We want to have seating and refreshments for you, so please complete this simple, 2 question survey to let us know how many guests from your family will attend.
