USA Swim Membership:  This is a reminder to sign your swimmer up with a USA Swim Membership. This is something you agreed to do when you registered for the Fall Swim session. You can do this by going to swim-smarter.com; create an account (or log in) and choose a membership option that works best for your swimmer. Our team on SwimSmarter is Rocklin Mavericks (RMAV) and we are part of the Sierra Nevada League.  There are 3 options to choose from for Fall Swim Team swimmers:

1. Flex Option$21.75, eligible for 2 sanctioned meets, expires Dec 2019

2. Individual Season$50.75, not eligble for Zones, Regionals or Nationals, expires Feb 7, 2019 (good option for swimmers desiring to participate in Winter Swim also)

3. Premium:  $89.75, expires Dec 2020, no restrictions on meet eligiblity

If you are coming from Wave's Summer Season, this is different from the NCSL membership you had for the Summer Season. If you have already completed your USA registration, thank you! If you are not sure if you have already done this please go to swim-smarter.com to confirm a current membership. You can do this by selecting "Register for USA Swimming Season" and seach your child's name.

Welcome back to the pool everyone!

We are looking forward to an exciting season of swimming and fun.  As we get ready to kick off the season tomorrow night, here are a few important dates and details parents / swimmers need to be aware of:

Monday 8/26:
*First night of Fall Swim begins at Whitney High. 
*This will coincide with WHS "Back to School Night" and will impact the availability of parking in the main lot.  Please plan to arrive early, as parking off-campus may be necessary.  We recommend dropping swimmers off at the pool before searching for parking options.

Labor Day, Monday 9/2:
*We will be offering all practices at their regularly scheduled times.

During Week 2:
*A parent information meeting is tentatively scheduled during practice time in the second week of the session.  We will discuss expectations; how to sign up for swim meets; and give a chance for Q&A about the season.  Keep an eye on your emails for the finalized date & time of this meeting.
**If you have any questions regarding Fall Swim or any other Rocklin Swim Team programming, please reach out by email or find me on deck Monday or Tuesday this week.**
