Important Championship Information

Important Team Information

A signup list has been generated on the website for volunteers, one for supplies and one for assistance with the meet at Valley Central.

First, each year we have a pre-championship party. It is hopeful that everyone will join us with enthusiastic team spirit and help put together a banner and posters for next Sunday! At the start of each session of the Championship Meet there is a parade, each team is introduced one by one upon entering the pool area. Everyone is cheering and chanting as we walk around the pool before the events begin, it is a very exciting time!

We are asking for supplies to create the banner and posters. Please sign up on the volunteer list under the Championship Meet. If you can think of anything else to decorate with please bring it with you, we are not limited to just the items on the list i.e.; ribbon, stickers or anything that sparkles, glue to adhere any thing you bring will be helpful.

Next, there is also a signup for the job we have been assigned by the ESSL league at the Championship Meet. We must deliver water to the timers and officials on the deck during each session. We have few swimmers but we will manage to get it out, our coaches and swimmers can help. We do not supply the water. We also need volunteers to please sign up for supervision in the gym as well.

Following this will be yet another email regarding relays. Even though not all our swimmers made qualifying times we will still be able to enter relays. I will list the relays with swimmers names,  please respond back to me tonight if the swimmers can or can not participate in the meet so I can submit the entries tomorrow.

Thank you for all your help!

2016 Championship Sign Ups

Information regarding Championships on the will be provided as soon as we receive it. At this time I need you to sign up for two events per individual that have qualifying times on the “Sign Ups and Stats” section of the website. The sign up will only allow you to sign up for events you have qualified for. Those sign ups are due tonight, Saturday, February 27th, as league requires those entries be sent in by tomorrow. For Last Chance participants, please sign up for qualifying events now and we will amend your entries after the Last Chance meet.

We were notified recently that the pool fees were increased this year. In order for the league to pay for the difference a $5 cover charge per person will be collected at the door. Each person will need to be present to purchase their ticket. In other words you cannot purchase a ticket for someone who is not with you, they must be present while you’re purchasing their ticket.
