Our annual team meeting is on Wednesday at 6:30pm in the HS Library. At least one parent from each family should plan on attending.

Practice will run as usual for the PS & S groups.


Due to the pool shutdown, we will be having a three week session with practice four days a week. Practice will be February 4-22 on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 6:00-6:45pm. Registration forms will be emailed to current and former participants. Spots will not be reserved until the registration form & full payment are received. We do still need to do paper registration and cash or check for this group.


We have received our shutdown date. Sunday, February 24 will be our last day at our pool. This is earlier than we anticipated, but we are grateful it is after our meet! And we are hopeful that we will be able to be back to the HS to practice a bit earlier. They will start with renovations on Monday, February 25. We are working on details for the last 2 weeks of practice and will share that information as soon. Spring practices will be held in Ellsworth. Dates and times will be coming soon. When the information goes out, I will connect those interested in creating carpools. Once I make the connections, you can run with the logistics that work for you all :)

Have a great weekend everyone!
