Good Morning Team,
We had a great first week of practices. It was so nice to meet all of the new swimmers and see all of the returning members of the team. We are very excited about the season!
I wanted to remind everyone to please sign up for the meets, yes or no. You can click on the Meet Tab on the website and commit for each meet, or click the link in the event reminder email. Please commit yes or no. You can always change your commitment later if your plans change. Invitationals can be changed up to about a week in advance of the meet and dual meets about 24 hours. You will not be choosing the events your child swims- we leave that up to the coaches. Just whether you will attend/decline the meet.
Remember there are event fees for the Invitational (weekend) meets.
June 12 Parent Info Night is a parent/coach/team meeting you will not want to miss.
June 14 The Intrasquad meet (a competition within our own Dolphins team) is a great introduction to how a swim meet works. Please try to attend this especially if you are new to swimming. There will be no visiting team so this is a fun “dress rehearsal” for the real thing. There will also be volunteer positions for this that need to be filled (it takes about 50 people to run a regular home meet!) and sign ups for this will be coming soon.
Just a reminder, please be sure to have your security card present when entering practice. Adults will need to show the card in order to be admitted.
Registration payments and past balances are due! Please remit payment as soon as possible. There are 2 ways to do this: mail your check to NHST, POBox 496 Blue Ball, PA 17506 or NEW for this year place your payment in an envelope and put in the Swim Team Mail Box (metal box located in the hall on the side of the trophy case). Make sure your account information is on or in the envelope.)
As always, if you have any questions, please ask.
