Practice Notes: Please, prior to leaving for practice check your email, our website, or any of our social sites for weather related cancellations.  Also, please remember if either NPUSC or SBCSC cancels school for the day we must also cancel our club practices.  Swimmers attending Friday practice are reminded to bring dry-land clothes including running shoes.  New Prairie swimmers are welcome to attend their corresponding group's practice at Riley. New Prairie swimmers and parents are asked to enter NPHS through door S6.


NCISC Meet and CON Last Chance

We have two regular season meets left.  The NCISC meet we host on February 9th and the CON Last Chance Invite the weekend of February 22nd-24th.  Both deadlines to commit to this meet are tonight Sunday, January 27th.  If you are able to attend please commit your swimmers as soon as you can.


The NCISC meet is a two session meet.  The morning session is for 10 and under swimmers and the afternoon session is for 11 and over swimmers.  When selecting sessions for this meet the 10 and under swimmers were given the option of both sessions.  This is because the 13 and over events in the afternoon are listed as "Open".  Technically this age group classification is available for all ages.  Our 10 and under swimmers will only be entered in events in the morning session.


Since the NCISC meet is a meet we are hosting we will be needing volunteers in several areas.  The jobs/volunteer section of this meet is up and running.


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
