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.  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.  

Swim Backpacks

We still have several left.  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


Senior State

A very good record setting two days for our swimmers. I will post all of our results to our website sometime tomorrow.  If you would like to follow all the action, you can by using the Meet Mobile app or by watching the live webcast.  Click here to get to that page of the Indiana Swimming website.


Last Day of the Winter Season

The last scheduled practice for Riley Group 1 and Group 2 will be this Thursday March 21st.  Riley Group 3 will offer practices the first part of the following week specifically for those athletes attending Speedo Sectionals, but they will also be open to all Group 3 and Group 2 swimmers that would like to attend. March 19th will be the last day of practice for our Groups at New Prairie.   After the 21st all swimmers will be moved to the long course season (spring/summer) for billing purposes.
Our first practice for the spring/summer season will be the week of April 7th-13th, the week following South Bend Schools spring break.  I have posted a link to our on-line registration on the club's Facebook page.  If you could, please share to help promote the club for the upcoming season.

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.


Spring and Summer Meet Schedule/Dates of Meet/Location/Deadline to commit

Below is our spring/summer 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
