Important notice regarding the 2020 Season

MO Swim & Dive Families,

It is with great sadness to inform you that the MO Swim & Dive board has voted unanimously to cancel the 2020 season. The All-City league voted this week to cancel the All-City meet and all dual meets as well. The board is 100% volunteer-based and we are on the board because we love the MO team. We love the camaraderie, team spirit, friendship, family, mentorship, and the list could go on and on. This decision breaks our hearts. But, the safety of our swimmers, coaches, lifeguards, and family are at the forefront of our thoughts throughout these challenging times.

We will be in touch about ways we can stay connected this summer and we will look forward to having the most incredible 2021 season! Thank you for your support of the MO Magicians!!

Sincerely,
MO Swim & Dive Board
