Tuesday, June 20, JAWS practice meet here in Jefferson.

This is just a fun day where everyone can get into the swing of how the meets are run, what to expect etc.

This practice meet gives parents, family and friends an opportunity to participate in the swim meet as a volunteer and learn the ropes before the actual meets. For each of our home events, we need 20 parent volunteers for different activities – mostly being timers for the swim events.

We do have this event listed on the web page – please use this opportunity to familiarize yourselves with how to sign in for specific events.         

JAWS will also sponsor a pizza party get together outside of the school after this event. Stick around and have some pizza and get to know someone new.

Expect our end of the season pot-luck again this year – Sunday July 30. More details on that later.

Meet sign-ups:

Will be conducted on line as we did last year.

We will send out reminder e-mails prior to each event with instructions for signing up for individual heats.

Family Contact Information:

E-Mail is our primary means of communication with each of you, so we would appreciate it if you would provide an accurate and updated email address that you continually monitor so that messages about upcoming events, practices etc., actually get to you and get read before the practice or event has occurred.

If you are new to JAWS, or have updated contact information from previous years, please go onto our website, go through the “Contact Us” link, and send us an email with your new contact information. We will update your information and send you a verification email reply once that is complete.

Swimsuits/Spirit wear:

We have contacted “Simply Swimming” out of Madison again this year to provide swim suits, caps, and related swimwear. We do not yet have a date when we will be able to conduct the on-site meeting to purchase that gear. We will contact you through e-mail once that time and place is set.


We will be bringing someone in again this year to get individual and team event photos.

JAWS will purchase the teams’ photos. Individual photos will be made available for purchase.

Dates will be coordinated once we have the swim and spirit wear purchase complete and delivered, hopefully early June timeframe.

Board Membership:

            Please contact any board member if you have an interest in joining the JAWS board.

Positions open up regularly and we welcome your participation and input on keeping JAWS running strong into the future.


We do accept sponsorships from individuals and businesses.  We will recognize those sponsorships on our web page and at home meets.
