AQUAJET PARENT POTLUCK:

Where: Coach Wendy's House 3095 Chico River Rd. Chico, CA 95926. When: October 26th; 4:00- 8:00PM Why: This is a great opportunity for parents with older swimmers to share their swim knowledge with our new parents. I hope you will take advantage of this evening to learn more about the Aquajets and everything it entails. No KIDS!

 

TEAM REGISTRATION REMINDERS:

  • If your swimmer plans to rejoin the team after high school season, please use the “contact us” feature on the team website to notify us of the date the swimmer will return. If you already know your plans, you can tell us now!
  • Notice of intent to discontinue swimming for the coming month must be given by the 15th of the previous month or swimmer will be charged for the following month. Use the “contact us” feature on the CAJ website – notifying a coach on deck is not sufficient notification. If a swimmer attends one or more practices OR swim meet(s) during a calendar month, dues are owed for that month.
  • We highly encourage all families to pay by credit card rather than check to avoid any late charges.
