Hello FFSC parents and swimmers,
Welcome to our fifth season! We are ready for another great year, and happy to return to IWU for the first time since March. Practice begins for all groups on Tuesday, September 6. The tentative meet schedule is now available online. To view it, click on "Meet Schedules" on the drop-down menu under the Meets tab. Not all meets are available for sign-up yet.
The first biweekly schedule is also posted online. Please remember to check the website every 2 weeks for the new schedule. Practice times are fairly consistent week to week for all groups, but you should always double check the biweekly schedule for finalized times, as well as important deadlines and reminders.
New parents can find useful team information under the Parents tab on the website. You must be logged in to your account to view these pages. Meet FAQ is currently available, and Practice/General FAQ will be available in the coming days.
As some of you know already, we will be hosting Regionals this winter! We are very excited about the opportunity to swim Regionals at our home pool. As our team continues to grow and host bigger meets, we would like to add several new officials to our current group. There will be a training clinic in Springfield on October 15 (click here for information/registration). If you have questions about becoming an official, please contact John Bishop (our meet referee), Coach Fish, or Coach Tommy. The team covers all costs incurred during the registration and training process.
Finally, for parents who like to stay and watch practice, we recommend bringing a towel or something to sit on. The old carpet has been removed from the balcony, but the new carpet will not be installed until the outside portion of the roof is completely finished.
We look forward to seeing everyone on Tuesday!
Coach Fish, Coach Tommy, and the FFSC staff
