Hello Parents,

Another great WST Long Course Invitation meet is in the history books.  There were so many great compliments heard from parents, coaches and swimmers.   Everyone seemed to have a wonderful experience.  It takes a lot of time and hard work to pull this event off each year and without the help of all our team families and outside volunteers, sponsors/donations we would not have such a great meet.  Also, a BIG thank you for Rob Fox and his team for helping us again this year!!  Thank you to everyone for volunteering their time and supplies!   A true team effort was shown by all. 

This week we help host our first summer league SVSL swim meet at the Winchester Country Club, 1300 Senseny Road, Winchester.  The theme is Country meets Country Club.  Swimmers should arrive no later than 5:30pm.  Warm ups are 6pm, meet starts 6:30pm.   We have 53 swimmers signed up for the meet.  This will be our first meet where our older/experienced swimmers are paired up with our new or younger swimmers as part of our Mentor Program to help swimmers feel comfortable and know where to go as this may be their first swim meet.  Parents if you have not signed up for a job for this meet please do so asap.  CLICK HERE and then JOB SIGN UP TAB  Timers are needed as well as Volunteer Coordinator and Clerk of Course. 

Job Sign Up links are posted for ALL 6 SVSL meets except for the championship meet.  Please sign up your swimmers and sign up parents for jobs asap.  Also please sign up for the fun SVSL long course meet, July 10 @ 5:30pm at Jim Barnett Park.

The DEADLINE to sign up for the Summer Awards long course meet in Stafford, VA is this Wednesday, June 26th.

Help is very much needed at all 6 SVSL meets for computer operators and Stroke and Turn officials.  With a one-hour training and a little homework you could be ready to help us on deck.  Please email kelly@warnagiris.org for more information.  Annual clinic for USA Swimming Officials is scheduled for September 2019.
