Practice Notes: No practice at RHS on Tuesday due to a high school meet. No practice Thursday due Thanksgiving. Practices on Wednesday and Friday will be in the morning. NP swimmers are welcome to attend their corresponding groups practices at Riley.

I have had several of our Group 1 parents email/ask about the schedule changes and the days Group 1 will practice.  Group 1 will always be scheduled on Tuesday and Thursday whenever it is possible.  But, with high school meets we can not guarantee those days every week.   I apologize for any inconvenience this may be causing.

SWAC Invitational

I will post the results and update all the pertinent pages to our website early this week.

Group 2 Night at RHS

Every year we ask our Group 2 swimmers to help time at a dual meet.  This year the meet is on Thursday November 29th and is against Clay High School.  The club will provide pizza for all the swimmers that attend.  The start time is still up in the air and I will communicate that to everyone as soon as it is confirmed.

Advertising Credit 

A Group 2 or Group 3 annual membership plus all the other associated fees with our membership -- spirit wear, meet surcharges, technology fees, concession stand/hospitality fees, USA Swimming-- is approximately $550 for an entire year. (A Group 1 annual membership is about $100 less.)  If you were able to sell two of the Premiere+ adds it could easily pay for a whole year of swimming including meet entry fees!

Selling a one year ad to one company could earn you anywhere from $50 to almost $500. Here is the link for more information. 

Another easy way to earn credit for your swim club account is to hang our recruiting posters out in the public. For every poster you hang you will receive a $5 credit up to $25. Once you hang the poster post a pic of it on your Facebook page (or other social site) and tag the club.

Fall and Winter Meet Schedule/Dates of Meet/Location/Deadline to commit

Below is our fall/winter meet schedule.  Swimmers wanting to compete will need to commit to those meets.  The deadlines are based on deadlines that were set last year. They may change once the meet hosts posts the meet information.  When committing to multiple day meets please leave a message in the available notes section of what days you would like to attend. Meets marked with an * are meets that require swimmers to meet certain time standards.  All pool locations can be found on our website under the "Pools" tab
