Hello and Greetings to All Returning and New Phoenix Parents,
We are very excited about this upcoming year and the potential of all of our swimmer's. With a year under our belt, we hope to be even more organized and continue to fulfill our mission to create: “the best and most successful experience for every swimmer and their families".
In trying to enhance our communication we are going to have an all parents meeting Sunday evening August 28. The meeting will be held in the Family Gym at the Mount Laurel YMCA and will start at 6:00. We will have a general introduction and then split up for group meetings with the coaches from each group.
I have posted a meet schedule on our home page; under the meets and events tab at our home page, http://www.ybccswimming.org . There may be an addition or two and maybe even a subtraction as go through the year, everyone will be notified of any changes going forward.
The practice times have also been posted on our home page under the Group Information tab. Note that as of November 6th we are discontinuing the Saturday practice for Mini and Age Group ML, and adding a Sunday practice to replace it.
We will be having a Swim-A-Thon this year to raise money for the team. It will take place on Saturday October 1st, at the Mount Laurel YMCA. All the information and collection will be on-line. Please look for an email soon with all the details.
Our apparel page at Swim Outlet had been updated with a number of new items, please check it out. Please enter through the banner on the home page so any purchase is credited to YBCC, the team had a very large rebate last year thanks to your participation. In addition, we are going to offer a package like we did last year: long sleeve T, short sleeve T, shorts, and sweatshirt.
You will receive an email about signing up for the GPAC meet shortly. I am setting a deadline of Sunday night August 28, so we have the best chance of getting into the meet. No late entries.
Looking forward to seeing everyone,
