4.) Current 8th Grade Swimmers: ALL CURRENT 8th grade swimmers will begin practicing with the Senior team starting April 8th. If this pertains to your swimmer, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with their name and which middle school they attend, as I will be putting together a mailing list and want to make sure all current 8th grade swimmers are included.
Have a GREAT break!
Volunteer Credits: Please log into your accounts and check volunteer credits by Friday. A list of those with unfulfilled credits will be sent to Billing this Friday. Please contact Holly Argiris at email@example.com with any questions.
Billing: All short course swimmers are automatically enrolled for long course season. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if your swimmer is NOT planning to swim long course.
Long Course New Swimmer Evaluations: Spread the word to friends and family that new swimmer evaluations will take place Wednesday April 3 and Thursday April 4 from 5:30-7:00 pm at CGHS. Returning swimmers do not have to be evaluated.
