Dear Neptune Families,
We hope this message finds you safe & well. We are in a
struggle right now to contain Covid-19 and limit the effects it has
on our community, while staying home is hard for us active folks,
it is necessary to help flatten the curve of the virus.
Neptune Swimming would like to thank all of our parents that are
nurses, medical assistants, doctors, police officers, firefighters
and essential service providers.
Our staff at Neptune Swimming is guided by two goals during this
Keep our staff & athletes as healthy as possible.
Keep Neptune Swimming viable & solvent for our eventual return
to the pool
As a 501c3 non profit organization, we do not profit off of the
annual membership fees, monthly dues fees, team hosted meets,
fundraisers, and any other income generating events. We use
these events to pay for coaches payroll, facility rentals, payroll
taxes, workmen’s compensation, & other insurance costs
plus standard expenses just like any normal
We recognize that everyone is struggling together and some of you
have lost your jobs or have been temporarily laid off and finances
are becoming a concern for each family. With that in mind, we
are reducing the dues to 50% for the month of April which we hope
helps your finances and allows us to maintain paying our staff to
ensure they are here for us when we return from this. If you
are willing and able to pay the full amount, please let Head coach
Dan Greaves (
) know and we will not adjust your dues.
We will continue working with Neptune staff to set up online
dryland exercises, distribute any online swimming videos that come
our way and keep up some form of communication with our athletes to
keep everyone plugged into as best as possible.
We are communicating with both the city of Santa Rosa & SRJC
administration regulartly to gauge a return date and get everyone
swimming as soon as possible.
The strength of our swim community is truly being tested at this
time and we ask that we all stick together & show
support. We can get through this together and our team will
be back soon.
CEO/ Head Coach
