CHAMPIONSHIP MEET SPAGHETTI DINNER The Championship dinner will be here before you know it!! This is our big fundraiser that pays for all coaching expenses-SO we need 100% participation!!!! Every swimmer will receive a new cool t-shirt, cap, and a window sticker for your car. We need everyone to send in your child's shirt size right away!! The sizes are Youth small, medium, large and Adult small, medium, large, x-large. Even if your swimmer(s) did not qualify for any of the state meets they will still receive a new orange Shark cap!! The dinner is February 24th so mark your calendars. It is at St. Thomas Aquinas School. Every swimmer will be getting 10 tickets to sell. This dinner was formally for the National fundraiser but we have changed it to the Championship Kick Off Dinner so everyone will benefit! Please send in your sizes to email@example.com! Thanks, Theresa Hilbrandt FRIENDLY REMINDER Session 2 has started and that registration is required to continue training and compete ting with the team. I think it would be fair to give everyone until the end of next week to be registered. If they are not registered by next week we really need to hold them out of practices and meets. Also, it could be indicated in the e-mail that payment plans can be set up for those who are not prepared to pay 100% of fees before the end of next week.
