Age Group State
Congratulations to Gabe Groves, our lone representative at State this weekend. On Saturday he had 3 swims, two were the second fastest swims of his career and one was a lifetime best. His best time came in the 50 free and he now has the 3rd fastest time in that event in club history. Gabe has two more races today, the 100 back and 100 free. You can follow Gabe all all the action on the Meet Mobile app.
This season (after countless fund raisers) the Riley Boys Swim Team bought new warm-ups and team backpacks. We now have several backpacks that are looking for a new home. These are the older model bags and some are a little worse for wear but most have several seasons left in them. Coincidentally enough, the Riley backpacks are the same team colors as SBSC backpacks. If you have a Group 1 or Group 2 swimmer and would like a free backpack for them stop by after any practice and take a look. I will only be handing these out to parents.

For all of our Senior State parents attending the meet: Indiana Swimming is hosting a swimming in college seminar at Pike High School during prelims on Saturday and Sunday. Information flyer is attached.
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.
