Happy Monday Everyone - just a few quick reminders for you this week: 

  1. We follow the GFPS Schedule - therefore we will not have practice this week Thursday or Friday, as there is no school
  2. Next week's intra-squad meet is open for signup - this is a great opportunity, especially for our new swimmers, to "practice" participating in a swim meet.
    1. This event will take place during normal practice times - it is on the schedule for 4:30 - 6pm.
    2. Please remember they must wear USA Swimming approved apparel for racing events - for females, 1 piece racing suit - for males, jammers/speedo (swimming/board shorts are not permitted)
    3. Swimmers need to be committed in the system, so that we are able to assign events and generate heat sheets. This is also a great practice process for new families to follow to make sure they are comfortable for our first sanctioned meet signup. 
  3. Custom swim cap orders are still open - they will be taken through 10/30. Orders will automatically be sent at close out. We will not be placing additional orders for custom caps until next year so please make sure you register if this is something you are interested in for your swimmer.
  4. USA Swimming registration is currently open - all returning swimmers must be registered for the new 2019 year. If they had a current account for 2018 they are still active. Renewal must be processed prior to 12/15 for it to be processed before the close of the year. 

We are currently working to schedule a parents meeting. The schedule will be sent out as soon as the date is finalized. We are expecting it to be schedule within the next two weeks. 

thanks - have a great week!
