The Meet Schedule is up on the website.  For those somewhat new to the team, we charge fees on the assumption that your child is going to participate in every meet they have qualified for. If your child's category is listed as attending a meet, it is your responsibility to notify Coach Jeff, by the indicated deadline for notificaiton, if your child is not attending. You can find these dates on both the meet page & the team calendar page of the website.


The season kick-off BBQ is Friday, September 14th right after practice. As each category practice ends (5Pm, 5:15PM, 5:30PM), kids will filter into the party. We will need a few volunteers to help make the event as special as last year.  Please contact Heather Smith if you are able to volunteer with this fun event.
