Young Advocates, Families & Speakers Needed
Calling all Cascade Age Group swimmers, north end and Shoreline Pool families, and those aspiring to swim for Shorewood and Shorecrest Swim Teams! As the FASST committee continues to build momentum and support for the development of a new competitive pool that will replace the existing Shoreline pool, we are encouraging our AG swimmers & families to attend upcoming school board and city council meetings. Our movement needs you, as you are the future of competitive swim in Shoreline!! The more who attend, the stronger the message. We welcome any young swimmers to speak at either meeting...share your passion for swim and hopes for high school swimming!
- Shoreline School Board meeting: Mon., Feb. 11 at 7:00pm, at the Shoreline Center Board Room.
- Shoreline City Council meeting: Mon., Feb. 25 at 7:00pm, at Shoreline City Hall Council Chambers.

Questions or ideas? Please contact FASST Committee CSC Representative, Julie Burgess-Dennis (


Workshare Update
Be on the lookout for more details coming soon on how to fulfill your workshare hours this season! Your next opportunity to sign up will be for February Divisionals at Madison Pool, Feb. 22-24, so save the dates. Workshare hours are not only essential to our team’s success, but also a fun way to meet other swim families and participate in the Cascade Community. Thank you for supporting and being an active part of CSC!


Clarification on Corporate Matching Details
Earlier we shared information about Corporate Matching, and how CSC families can have their workshare hours matched with a financial donation from their employer. For those already pursuing that option, thank you! We also had some feedback that the name of the organization in your employer’s database for donation and tax purposes may not be “Cascade Swim Club”, but instead “Cascade Boosters Club Incorporated”.
Please contact your employer’s human resources department to activate your Corporate Matching program, and thank you for supporting Cascade Swim Club!
