Hello Devilfish Parents,

This has been an exciting and rewarding year for the Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) and the Devilfish Swim Team.  The purchase and installation of our new scoreboard, without interruption to our annual PAC budget, was the culmination of multiple years of parent fundraising efforts and planning.  We are thrilled to have it in place this year. 

We have heard from our coaches, swimmers, and parents that they would like to see new starting blocks with track style back wedges similar to those seen at our major meet venues.  Any coach will tell you that repetition breeds success, and having these blocks at our home pool would allow our swimmers to practice the same starts they will be performing at our end of season Championship meets as well as YMCA Nationals and other major meets.  With our current blocks many of you feel that our swimmers are at a disadvantage.  We want you to know that we hear you and we’d like to fix this situation as soon as possible!

We have an opportunity to have new blocks in place for the beginning of the 2020-21 season but since we had the recent scoreboard expenditure, we need to raise additional money - quickly - in order to make this a reality for the upcoming season.  Would you please consider making a donation towards the purchase of new blocks?  Know that 100% of your donation would be used specifically for blocks, is 100% tax deductible, and no amount is too small.  Information regarding how to give is provided by clicking on this link.  In the meantime, if you have any questions please feel free to reach out to me either via phone or email.

Thank you for your consideration.

Go Devilfish!
