USA Swimming registration forms for 2009 have been placed in the folders of all returning swimmers.  Most of the swimmers new to MAC already completed this process when they registered for the team.  Please complete the registration form and place it the Membership/Registration file along with a check for $65.00 made payable to MAC.  Please turn in all checks on or before Friday, November 7th.  The current registrations for returning swimmers will expire on December 31, 2008 and your child will not be allowed to practice or compete unless their registration is current.  If you have any questions, please contact Ed Goundry at
