Important Dates - Summer Registration, New Family Meeting, Tryouts

President Mitch Dekoven

Frogger Nation,

Please take note of the following important dates with regards to our 2020 swim season registration and new family meeting. Please help us get the word out to others (not currently in the Frogger family) by sharing this information with them (will be printed in the Franklin Farm Foundation almanac and posted to our website and Facebook page shortly as well). 

  • Franklin Farm Froggers Swim Team online registration will begin at 7:00pm on Sunday, March 22 for returning Frogger families
  • Registration for new families who are residents of Franklin Farm will open at 7:00pm on Sunday, March 29
  • Registration for new families who are non-residents of Franklin Farm will open at 7:00pm on Tuesday, March 31

Please note that given the size constraints of the program there is no guarantee that returning swimmers not registering during the week of March 22 or new swimmers can be added to the team. The number of new swimmers is dependent on the number of swimmers that return from last year’s team. 

Swim team membership is open to children ages 5 (by June 15th) to 18 who can swim one length of the pool with a proficient degree of expertise, tread water for one minute, and are members of the Franklin Farm pools. 

Swim tryouts for new swimmers will be held at the Herndon Community Center. Tentative tryout dates are set to be Sunday, April 19 and Sunday, April 26 at 8:30am at the Herndon Community Center. If your child requires a tryout (new to the team), I strongly encourage you to attend one of these two tryouts. Having to do tryouts the first week of formal practice slows down the kickoff of the season. 

The Froggers Board of Directors will host an informational meeting for Franklin Farm pool member parents on Monday, March 9 at 7:00pm at the Franklin Farm Foundation meeting room (Still Pond Community Center) to answer questions from parents whose children may be considering joining the team.
