New Prairie swimmers and parents are asked to enter NPHS through door S6.


T-shirt's for This Season

Please double check the T-shirt size you listed for your swimmer on your account page.  We will be placing the order at the end of this month.  This season's shirts will be the dry-fit material.  Parents if you would like to purchase one please send me an email with T-shirt in the subject line and let me know the number and the sizes you'd like.  At this point, I have not received the artwork back from the company we use, so I am unsure of the color or the design.  I hope to have a better idea by the end of the week.


CSC Spring Fling, May 3rd-5th, Carmel High School

The deadline for committing to this meet is today Sunday April 14th.  This meet is just for our 13 and over swimmers with at least one Divisional cut.


NASA Off The Blocks, May 4th, Northridge High School

The deadline for committing to this meet is a week from Wednesday, April 17th.  This meet is appropriate for all age groups and ability levels


Girls Tech Suit

Cheryl Meyer (Lauren's mom) is trying to sell a new, still in the box, with tags, size 28 Nike Tech Suit.  She is asking $50.  If you are interested please contact her at


Registered Dietitian

We have hired a registered dietitian to give a talk to our Group 3 swimmers and to all of our parents.  Topics will include meal planning, appropriate snacking, and eating to train effectively.

Erica Weinandy from Beacon Health will be at Riley on Tuesday April 30th.  She will meet with parents from 6:15-7:15.  We will most likely have the meeting in one of the classrooms across the hall from the pool locker rooms.  As the date approaches I will confirm the meeting place.

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.
