Welcome Flying Fish 2013


Let us start by welcoming all of you to the 2013 swim season.  We are looking forward to another fun and exciting season at the pool.  Our goal for this season is to provide a healthy environment for our children to work on stroke development and technique, develop principles of good sportsmanship and teamwork, and as always have fun in the pool!  We swim in the Tarpon Division this summer against Greenbrier Country Club, Indian Lakes, Norfolk Yacht and Country Club, and Timberlake.  We are also looking forward to hosting Divisionals for the very first time!


We need all families to participate to make this a successful season.  Job sign-ups are available on the website ( under the Events tab. 

We are looking for some extra Stroke and Turn Judges.  Stroke and Turn training will be held on Saturday, June 1stfrom 9:00-11:00 or Wednesday, June 5, from 7:00 to 9:00 (locations TBD).  If you have not already spoken to Tina Pullen about attending, please send her an email.
