Happy Monday Gators!

Can you believe we have our last Dual Meets this week?!  I know I can’t!  Make sure to check your commitments and contact if you need to change anything.

Meets this week:

7/10 meet versus South Point (AWAY)

7/14 meet versus Naperville Tennis (HOME)  - Super Hero Theme!

Coming Up:

7/19 High School Invite

7/21 Classic Meet

7/27-28 City Meet

Job Reminders - 

  • Set up/take down - Please note this job starts at 7am on Saturdays and 4pm on weekdays.  Due to the fact that the set up process is relatively quick, please be prompt.  If you know you will be late, please find a worker replacement.  
  • Bullpen - 6 & Under bullpen workers line up all age groups, but are excused after boys 6 & under backstroke is lined up.  Regular Bullpen workers stay the entire meet.  
  • Substitute workers - make sure they know to check-in.  Please email Rachel if a substitute is working for you.  (Occasionally a substitute doesn’t remember which family they are working for, especially if they sub for multiple families!)
  • Finally, please remember if you have a swimmer who will be competing in either Classic or City meet, you will be required to work one job during that meet.  This is in addition to the 5 regular season jobs you have worked.
