WEST Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy - Action Required by ALL TEAM MEMBERS

Please review the email that was sent out by Coach Nick earlier this week. These new policies are meant to keep safety a top priority in all USA Swimming Club Teams across the country. The form must be signed and understood by both parents and returned to WEST front office ASAP.

June Jubilee Volunteers NEEDED FOR NEXT WEEKEND

WEST is hosting a major meet at KCAC on June 29-30. We will need ALL HANDS ON DECK to make this meet a success. Next year we are hosting Age Group Regionals at KCAC, so it is important that everyone gets comfortable with running bigger meets at the Aquatics Center. These will be the last major opportunities for parents to fulfill their hour requirements, so please visit the Events page for June Jubilee to sign up.

Please contact your group coach or the front office for any questions or concerns.

Happy Swimming & keep your stick on the ice.
