Summer Swim is ONE month away!

You read that right!ý May 28th is our first evening practice!ý Crazy, right?!ý Well, if you are like me and in the middle of a busy soccer season, then you probably haven't filled out your registration form!ý NOW is the time to do that!ý It is on swimflyingfish.com and includes the key dates for the season as well.

You can return your registration form at one of our upcoming Info and Registration Nights--May 5, 9 or 15th from 4:30-6:30.ý Or you can put it in an envelope and drop it off at my mailbox (817 Orkney Ct.)ý Our registration fee continues to be $100 per swimmer.

Our Parents Meeting is on Sunday, May 19th and will start promptly at 6:30.ý The basics will be gone over quickly and I will stay to answer all questions.ý Also DUE that day are Swim Cap Orders.ý Caps are $15 (non personalized) and $20 ( for one personalized with your last or first name.)ý $18 per cap if you are ordering 2 or more with the same name on them.ý The form is the same as last year and is located on the front page of our website--swimflyingfish.com.

Coach Manon is actively recruiting Junior Coaches again this year.ý If your swimmer has an interest (must be graduating from 8th grade or older.) Please complete the application posted on swimflyingfish.com and send it to Coach by May 15th.ý Her email is [email protected]ý This is a great leadership opportunity and really helps our littlest swimmers!

We will need to get our Stroke and Turn judges trained again this year.ý We really need a good 10-12 parents to help out with this--to allow for vacations, work schedules and volunteer relief!ý In person training (which is a great way to go if you are brand new to this!) will be held May 20th from 9-11.ý You can also take the training online (and the league will reimburse you the end of the season for this training--it is $30.)ý The link is https://strokeandturn.com/

And, while Jane has agreed to be our head referee again this year, we would like for someone to also be trained to do this as a back up.ý You must go to in person training on May 20th from 8-9.ý Please talk with Jane if you are interested in the Referee training.ý All training is held at Little Neck Swim in Virginia Beach. Her email is [email protected]

Thank you so much for being such active families--it really makes it fun!ý I look forward to a super successful swim season--which to me means we will have quite a few laughs and get a little wet!

If you have any questions, please email me at [email protected] or call me at 407-963-1094.ý I look forward to seeing you soon!
