The first league swim meet is scheduled for June 14th and the championship swim meet will be held on Saturday, July 28th. The swim meet schedule will be given at the parent and coaches meeting on May 2nd from 6-7:30pm that will be held at the outdoor pool. Barb Prue from All American Swim will be at this meeting for any swimmers that need to try on team suits for ordering, and she will also have caps, goggles, and other swim accessories available for purchase.
We will be planning a coach and parent meeting in the evening on May 2nd (time and location to be determined) and will have a representative from All American Swim there as well that will be providing team suits for swimmers to try on for correct sizing and ordering for the upcoming season. Anyone that is unable to attend the meeting that may need to order a team suit can also place an order over the phone or can visit the All American Swim Store located at 1231 NW Maynard Rd, Cary, NC 27513.
We will be starting a parent’s committee this year and are looking for swim parents that would be interested in being a part of the committee and/or are available to volunteer for the various positions needed when hosting home meets. Please email Whitney Eckard at Whitney@eckard.us if you are interested in being a part of this as this will help our future seasons function in a more organized manner.
Registration prices per swimmer are as follows:
We are offering a sibling discount for families that will be registering more than two children.
Any additional sibling registering for swim team after the first two children will each receive a 20% discount for that sibling.
