Evergreen Hurricanes Newsletter September 2014

Mandatory New Parent Meeting Monday Sept. 22 at 5:00pm in the Aspen room of Wulf Rec (first room on right). This is your chance to hear from the coaches. If you are a new family to the Hurricanes team you are required to attend.  The good news is that we don't require you to work the first meet. Although, you are welcome to if you wish. Timers are an easy job and provide a front row view.

Saturday, 9/27 is the first meet at MEYERS POOL.


Returning families are required to work the meet and may sign up for the volunteer position of their choice via the Sign Up Genius which is posted on the Home page of the team website.  Volunteering is a requirement of membership to the team.  For all meets, any jobs not chosen will be assigned to families who haven't picked a job.  Questions may be direct to the volunteer coordinators Kathy Hellard & Cathy Crane

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 notification, if your child is not attending. You can find these dates on both the meet page & the team calendar page of the website. The meet schedule has links to directions to each pool. Click on the name of the pool.

Be sure to sign up for RAINEDOUT.COM so that you can get last minute info sent right to your phone directly from Coach Jeff. Weather alerts, time changes, deadline reminders, etc. Here are the directions on how to sign up
