Good afternoon Lancers families!
We are pleased to announce that registration for the summer season is now open. We can’t wait to see you all on deck! We will be practicing five days a week and swimming Saturday meets in June and July. Please read the notes below as there will be a few modifications to the program this year.
The Prince William Swim League voted to hold cyber meets for the first half of the season. What is a cyber meet? Each team will swim at their home pool (like Time Trials) and then the times will be merged in the computer with the opposing team’s times. Ribbons will be awarded based on the merged results. By doing this, teams will not travel and crowds on deck will be smaller. During the first week of July the league will revisit this decision to decide if teams can travel to away meets for the second half of the season and divisionals.
In order to host our own meets in June, we will need all hands on deck . Please complete this Google form to let us know how you can volunteer this year. We will provide training for all positions. The team is especially in need of officials so please consider becoming an official this year.
We are working closely with the Lake Ridge Community Swim Club to establish any COVID-19 protocols that are necessary to comply with mandatory governmental requirements. Last summer we had great success in implementing a swim plan and we expect to do the same this year. We will communicate our plan to you as soon as it is finalized.
The 2021 brochure with a full set of dates, times, and details is available on the homepage. Please access the “2021 Summer Season Information” tab for practice times, meet dates, and registration details.
Finally, below is a calendar of upcoming events. More information about each of these will be sent as we get closer to the event:
