High Tides is excited to be taking 9 swimmers to the Central Zone Speedo Meet March 25 - 28th in West Fargo, ND.  These are all individual events as relays are still not part of the meet programs.  Best of Luck to Madilyn, Conner, Madison, Hailey, Kasi, Grace, Jaiden, Noah, and Mikayla! #rolltides

 

MINNESOTA SWIMMING VIRTUAL LEADERBOARD

Swimmers will be able to participate in the Championship meet, all Virtual this year.  The Virtual Leaderboard will be open from March 10th - April 18th.  Coach RJ will have information on how this meet will work as he receives more information.

 

TEAM TID-BITS! 

DivingTowels and various shirts for sale – Please see a board member or coach if you would be interested in purchasing a High Tides towel or shirt that we do have on hand.  The towel is $38 and shirts are $10 

SHORT-COURSE BANQUET  - Currently, we are looking at April for the annual meeting.  The Board of Directors made the decision to hold off on the banquet until the Virtual Leaderboard concludes.   

LONG-COURSE SEASON – The long-course season will begin with the summer session beginning in early June.  Details will be shared as the board works on finalizing plans and working with the school on scheduling.    

FUNDRAISERS – Plans are underway to host a golf tournament early in Summer 2021.  Anyone interested in being on the committee please contact coach RJ.  The club also plans to have the Swim-A-Thon again during the long-course season, hopefully outside with food, activities, and non-social-distancing FUN! 

SWIM CAP ORDERS - Deadline to order swim caps is Monday, Feb 22nd.  No late orders will be accepted as Elsmore has an approximate 3 week production time.
