MSC September 2016 Newsletter

Message from President

Welcome to a new swim season! It has been wonderful seeing many returning families and meeting new Mariner Families. Our coaches have been encouraging the swimmers to learn the names of new teammates and training mates, and I encourage parents as well to say hello and introduce yourself to a new face.

The first swim meet is just around the corner, so please attend the General Parent Meeting on Saturday, September 10, at 12:30pm in the bleachers. I will go over some important MSC and USA swimming policies and answer as many questions as I can regarding attending meets and parent volunteer requirements. We will schedule an additional Q&A in October.

New and returning parents please take a moment and visit the team website. Many answers to some of your questions can be found under the Parent Info tab and the Team Info tab. There is a calendar tab on the website with dates for event, meet, and practice schedule changes. You may also find information under News on the right side of the webpage.

Parents please feel free to email me if you have any questions, ideas or suggestions, [email protected].  All billing questions should be emailed to either Coach Lenore, [email protected] or to Jeff Spokes, [email protected]

-Michelle Cerny, Board President
