REMINDER - VJO TEAM SUITS & CAPS MANDATORY AT ALL MEETS
This is a reminder that VJO Team Suits and Team Caps are mandatory at all meets. I know it has been close to 10 months since most of our swimmers have competed and it has been brought to my attention that many of our VJO swimmers team suits are too small now. Please do your best to be in a VJO team suit at the upcoming meet.  If your old team suit does not fit please get a new team suit ordered ASAP. Contact Coach Jennifer if you have any problems with your team suit for the upcoming meet on November 14th.  Below I have included the link and info to order a VJO team suit.

ALL SWIMMERS MUST BE IN A TEAM SUIT AT MEETS

PRACTICE PROTOCOL PROCEDURES- CUNNINGHAM POOL
All VJO swimmers and families attending practice at the Cunningham Pool must read through our "Practice Protocol Procedures" PDF for Cunningham Pool.  We need all swimmers to know what to expect when they arrive for practice at the Cunningham Pool. The PDF will teach our swimmers the new protocol and procedures that we will be following at the Cunningham Pool.  These procedures are similar to both the American Canyon and Benicia Pool.
