Hey Everyone, I have a couple of announcements and clarifications I would like to make this week. This week I am opening up morning practices for the Presenior group as an optional practice for that group.

These practices are 100% optional for the Presenior group. I would also like to clarify USA swimming’s rules against recruiting. I want to preface this by saying that nothing...

Hello Wave and Mavericks Families, I wanted to write an open letter to the team to inform you about current development behind the scenes and the focus for the future plans for the team. We also need help to make this team better. First, I want to thank you for your patience as we work through our cancellations due to the heat and the smoke.

This week will likely be chaotic as well, so please make sure to check your emails often. Community Service Opportunity We will be collecting towels this week...

Hi MAVERICKS! We have a riddle for you: You see them at the Mavericks swim meets dressed in fancy navy blue pants, stylish white sneakers, a good-looking white shirt or jacket, and carrying a little clipboard.

Yes, we all see them, but do we truly know how important they are? The answer is, they are VERY important...
