Code of Conduct:

As we make our way into the last quarter of our swim season, we want to take a moment to appreciate the relationships and friendships each practice group has built with each other. We have seen many instances of support and camaraderie, furthering our mission to promote a team environment which champions safe and healthy athletes and individual excellence. We ask parents and swimmers to review and continue to uphold all expected standards of conduct, treating each other, officials and coaches with respect and courtesy as we conclude this season.
