Message from the Presidents

Dear Roselle Racers families;

Please read entirely – a lot of information here.

 

POOL/PRACITCE/MEET INFORMATION

Thank you for your patience.  We apologize on the delay but we do have information.  Kemmerling is being fixed as we speak.  We will notify you as we receive updates on the status of the pool.  Until then, we will be using Streamwood’s indoor pool located at 550 South Park Boulevard, Streamwood from 6:00 – 7:30am for all swimmers starting Wednesday, June 5th.  There will also be evening practices on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 7:00 – 9:00pm.  Due to the delay and Addison not having a pool either, we will be canceling our first swim meet 6/5 against Addison.  We are also canceling Glendale Heights as they are not able to host the meet and we don’t have a pool. Our first meet would be at Woodridge on 6/12.  

 

APPAREL ORDER

If you ordered a swim suit and/or other custom items before 5/8; the coaches will have it at the first practice on Wednesday.

 

VOLUNTEERS

We really need help! We need the following:

  • Swim Meet Coordinator – This year families will be able to signup for their volunteer  positions online 7 days prior to the swim meet.  The cutoff will be 2 days prior.  The Swim meet coordinator will be responsible for making sure all positions are filled utilizing the website.  There is an option where you can see who has not volunteered.  Then using the family volunteer forms; the open positions will be assigned.  The position also requires for checking in volunteers before the meet starts and distributes/collects the timer watches.
  • Special Event Coordinator – Responsible for recruiting, planning, organizing special events that are not meet related like: Picture Day (confirming date, time and distributing forms and photos), conference breakfast, banquets, and potluck.
  • Bag Tag Coordinator – Creating bag tags, laminating and bringing to home meets.  Supplies, that are approved, will be reimbursed.

 

We are also in need of families stepping up to judge.  We need a minimum of 3 additional judges this year.  If you have timed for a minimum of 1 year; please consider on becoming a judge.  All those currently judges; we need you to get certified this year as it expires 12/31/2019.  Any questions regarding this you can email Jeff Lawson at jeff@jalappraising.net or call him at 847-354-1254.
