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.  The shirts will be navy blue.


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.


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
