Redmond Pool -  Mondays and Wednesdays 2:30-4:30PM starting May 7th through July 25th call Redmond Pool for session detail and cost ( 425-833-4422 )

We will play "SKWIM 100" in competitive games, which permits the playing team in the water  to "pool" an accumulative age of "100" or less.  Players between 18 and 50 count as 18 points (limited 2 in pool). Over 50 count as 15 points (limited 2 in pool).  Teams are co-gender.  We will only have about 3-4 practices before games so it is important to come if you want to take part in the games. 


We will be posting schedules soon for games starting May 7th at the Redmond Pool.  Games will run between May 7th  and July 25th.  Vacation absences will be permitted.


Competition signup sheets are at the pools (you can call and reserve a spot).   Players are required to partake in a minimum of 2 practices,  know the rules, and play by the LIFE -RING Principles  www.skwimusa.org . All games will be officiated and scored. Game fees are same as practice pool fees of site.  A " sponsored" season-end tournament of participating teams will determine 2012 Official SKWIM State Champions End of July 2012.


Please let us know if you intend on competing this summer, so we can save you a space!  We might have 2 teams at some of the pools.  Please sign up with a friend (it's more fun)! It's OK if you have not played, its fast and easy to learn! www.skwimusa.org


Please advise at your earliest convenience! (tell a friend!)


We are also in need of sponsors for team jerseys.  All donations are fully tax deductible!
