Hello Swim Team Families!  The sun is finally out and another season is just around the corner. Swim team registration opened on April 1st and you can also sign up for volunteer positions – thanks to the families of the 119 kids who have signed up!To register for swim team and find information about swim meets and volunteering, visit this link:  
Key Dates:

May 20 – first evening practice! Swimmers must be registered to get into the pool on the first practice.
Online gear ordering opens on May 10th, and Sylvia’s will be at the pool during swim team practice from 5:45pm to 7:45pm on May 20th. New gear has been added, and this year everything will be shipped to you at home. Plus any member can order items (you don’t have to be on swim team)!Our first home meet is Wedg v Wood on June 20th – this is a great opportunity to ease into the season! We have three other home meets, on July 9, 11 and 16.  We will also host Boys Prelims on July 30.
Thank you so much to everyone who has gotten back to us for volunteer lead spots; we will add your names into Team Unify. We still need a split timer lead and a runner lead. And of course there are lots of timer slots, concessions slots and non-lead spots to grab for your 15 hours. Thanks in advance for all your help! We’re looking forward to a great season!
