Year round to begin Tuesday April 20th
Posted: April 13, 2010 by Webmaster
The current postings of starting dates for Year round on our web site calendar are incorrect. The starting date is Tuesday April 20th. Registration dates as posted on the web site will remain the same. Only swimmers currently enrolled, have spoken to me personally, or that attended the meeting may sign up at this time. Space is limited and I would need to see the numbers of each practice group before opening up the enrollment. Once I see who is there I can let others join if space is available.
Photo Web Site
Posted: March 18, 2010 by Webmaster
For those parents that have been taking pictures and might like to share them with the rest of the team, I've created a Shutterfly site. For now I've set it up so that people will need to create an account before they can upload or view photos, however it's a free service.
I set it up that way so that only team members could view the photos, and they're not available to the entire internet. However, if people start using the site and I get feedback that they'd prefer it to more open so that firends and familiy can view the pictures then that's easy enough to change.
So, if you have any photos you'd like to share (BYNS, high school, or Mako Shark) click here to create an account. I've also added a link to the site in the Member Links section that you can get to once you're logged in.
