Tomorrow, June 1 - Meet the Coach and Swim-a-Thon!

Colleen Cadwallader

Tomorrow we welcome our new Head Coach, Maxx Hansen, to the deck! Come meet him while your swimmer gets their Swim-a-Thon laps in! Plan to arrive and leave at your regular time.

Please let us know that your swimmer will be participating tomorrow, and sign up for a volunteer shift by using the Job SignUp and Edit Commitment buttons for the Swim-a-Thon event found on this page. Download the Swim-a-Thon pledge form here

Help us raise $7,000 for our new scoreboard and encourage your swimmer to add as many laps as they can to our 8,000 lap goal.
