DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME
 
Daylight Savings Time is at 2:00 AM on Sunday, March 10.  So, set your clocks forward one hour (meaning we unfortunately lose one hour of sleep Saturday night).

Delaware Swim Team is REQUIRED to provide one timer each for the Saturday morning session, Saturday afternoon session, and Sunday afternoon session.  Because the team has been assigned these three timer positions, volunteer service points will be awarded for this meet.  You can sign up to time here.  The positions have had their start and finish times changed from last night to reflect the new timeline.
 
More information will be sent out to Bronze Championships families later this week.
 
 
MINI CHAMPIONSHIPS
 
 
Mini Championships is next weekend, March 16-17.  The meet is at LaSalle University in Philadelphia.
 
Delaware Swim Team his REQUIRED to fill 8 volunteer positions, which can be fulfilled at any time during the meet.  Blue Eagle Swim Team has asked that on their volunteer sign-up page, anyone who volunteers makes sure to note "DST" or "Delaware Swim Team" when they sign up.  This will let the meet hosts know that we are fulfilling our required volunteer positions.  After you sign up on their sign-up page, then sign up on our own job sign-up page so that you can be awarded volunteer service points after fulfilling the position that you signed up for.
 
 
SILVER CHAMPIONSHIPS
 
 
Silver Championships is in two weeks, March 22-24 (Friday-Sunday).  The meet is being hosted by Delaware Swim Team.
 
Volunteer positions for Silver Championships will open Tuesday, March 12, at 9:00 PM.  Positions are opening on Tuesday the 12th, rather than the usual Wednesday of the week before the week of the meet, because Silver Championships begins on Friday the 22nd.
 
 
SENIOR CHAMPIONSHIPS & SECTIONALS
 
 
Today, Wednesday, March 6, is the deadline to sign up for Senior Championships.  Anyone planning on attending that has not yet signed up should do so today.  Talk to your primary coach about entries.
