Congratulations to all the Championship Meet Qualifiers! 
The team has been swimming strong all season, and if you had any doubts it is proven by the fact that we had 23 swimmers qualify for Silver State, and there will be 25 going to the 14 & under State meet in Fort Collins this weekend.

Spring Break is Coming!
The team will be on break from Saturday, March 24 through Sunday, April 1st following the Jefferson County school calendar.

Save the Date: Sunday, May 6th
On Sunday, May 6th we will be hosting our final home meet of the year.  On that same afternoon, we will hold the annual team bowling party and awards ceremony from 3-6pm.  Be sure to mark your calendars - you won't want to miss this fun event. 

Season Finale Meet - Sunday, March 18th
We will be holding another home meet in just a couple of weeks - please mark your calendars for Sunday, March 18th. This will be a two-session meet, with 10 and unders in the morning, and 11 and overs in the afternoon.

Parent Meeting During WarmUps March 18th
There will be mandatory parent meetings held during the warm ups (both sessions). Our team is over 90 swimmers strong, and we need more officials to support our participation in home and away meets. Come to this meeting to learn how you can make a difference for our swimmers by becoming a USA Swimming official. All training is provided, and you get all those hidden benefits...cool white shirts with your name on them, free burritos at every meet, and a chance to wear shorts and white shoes in winter, to name just a few. Talk to Kathy Lahr, our head official, for more information on what it takes to get started.

Join the Board of Directors
It is never too soon to start asking - please consider serving the team in this important role.  Every year, three people rotate off the board, and in August we will need a vice president, secretary, and at-large member.  Talk to Coach Jeff or Susan Kramer, current board president, or come to our next board meeting on Monday, March 19th (5:20 - 6:30pm at Wulf Rec) to see what it is all about. Strong team governance is critical to our success!
Keep an Eye on the Team Calendar
Boys high school swimming has started, and the pool will be closed for high school meets on several occasions in the coming months.
