Good afternoon Glenwood Parents.
This is a quick reminder that screening for new swimmers for the big team and pre-team is tonight, 5-7 p.m. at Glenwood.
Even if your child was on pre-team last summer, they must be screened again this summer in order for our coaches to determine the best placement for our newest swimmers. If you think your swimmer will be on the pre-team, please bring your check book. Registration and payment for pre-team is still done the old-fashioned way with paper and pen. More information about pre-team can be found here.
Capital Sport and Swim will have a representative at the pool tonight during screening hours to help you with sizing and purchasing of our new team suit. If you can’t make it tonight, no worries. Just stop into their Kensington location at 10558 Metropolitan Ave or call 301-949-7366.
Glenwood’s very own sportswear shop will also be at the pool tonight, so be sure to stop by their table for a view of the merchandise. More information about Glenwood sportswear is available here.
Practices start Wednesday so if you haven’t already, please, please, please register your swimmers ASAP!
If your swimmers are all signed up, check out the practice schedule for the remainder of the school year and beyond. Before you know it, the kids will be hitting the water for time trials on June 8, followed closely by our first A meet, at home on June 15, and our first B meet, which happens at Garrett Park on June 19! See our full 2019 schedule for the long view.
Finally, keep an eye out in the coming days for an email invitation to sign up for the volunteer work required of every swimmer’s family. Remember that you must volunteer for three jobs to support our team, plus one for each additional child (maximum of five jobs per family). This team is powered by the energy, enthusiasm, and contributions of our amazing parents. In short, we simply can’t make it work without you. Volunteer signups will open Monday, June 3, but if you’re curious and want a sneak peak at the types of jobs that need doing this summer, check out our overview.
Thanks and see you tonight at Glenwood!
