This week we return to our regularly scheduled practice.  All swimmers swim at their regularly scheduled time between 5:15 and 6:45 depending on the group.  Rising 9th graders should plan to swim with the Sharks this week as well.  High school swimmers are welcome to joint the Sharks this week but should also watch for further information about swim practice from Coach Kent.

Wednesday we have our monthy parent meeting.  Please take a few minutes to join us for this meeting.  This team is entirely parent managed, and run and your input is important.  We also aim to keep these meetings brief.  If you have any questions this is an excellent opportunity to ask them.

Friday is our end of season party.  We will have the volunteer sign-up ready today.  This is your last big opportunity to get your volunteer hours in this year.  Be sure to check your account to see what your status is.  If you find some are missing that you worked, please say something now so we can get them credited.

In case you haven't seen it, we have a new website.  We are still working a few kinks out but we are very excited about some new features we will have, such as the ability to text everyone in the event of a pool closure.  You will find your account information behind the small circle at the top of the page.  If you are having problems, please don't hesitate to say something.

We would like to have a strong presence at back to school night in our elementary schools.  If you will be at back to school night, or have the time to work a back to school night and need some volunteer hours please sign up to work a table.  This involves checking with the school to get a table during the event, and providing answers to anyone that is interested in swimming.  We will have forms available for our swim clinic at the end of the month.

Our swim clinic is set for the last week of august.  We are posting the flyer about this today.  If you know anyone interested in joining the team, this is a great opportunity for them to get a feel for what practice is like and to see if they have the skills in place for the team.  Please direct family and friends to our flyer so they can sign up for the clinic.
