    2019 Information

    • Swimsuit - We get one more year with the same suit!  The suit went out of print last year (they do 2 year cycles) and our swim shop (SwimFreak) saved a bunch for us. Feel free to trade with your neighbors if you want to save a bit of money.  We do require the suit for meets.  Makes our life easier keeping kids in the right lanes.
    • Skills Requirement - The league will continue the policy of "swim an event successfully in practice before a meet". It really helped computers & stroke judges.  But swimmers benefitted most - working on a stroke and being helped real time is a much more positive experience than trying to understand a DQ on the wall. So, again, the coach will need to approve swimming breast and fly if a swimmer does not have a previous time in the event.
    • Volunteering - (1) New this year, we will ask that family members do not signup for the same job at a meet, except for timers. (2) Setup will require heavy lifting.  (3) Only AGP for a group with your kids. (4) Again, minimum 4 shifts required to be in good standing.
    • Credit Card Only - To reduce paper pushing and volunteer overhead, registration will be credit card only.  If you don't have a credit card, please contact us BEFORE starting the registration process. You will not be able to register online without a credit card.
    • Shirts - They are soft, blue, and Next Level.More coming soon!  We're getting there!
