Hello Gators!


Congratulations on a great job last night…finishing the season 3-1!  Meet results are attached.  Thanks for your patience and hard work last night as we experienced quite a storm!


 A few updates on tomorrow!



We will have a fun (no workout) practice in the morning from 8:00-9:45 for all age groups.  This will be the last practice for those swimmers not competing in the JSL Champs meet next weekend. 



We are having our team picnic tomorrow night from 7-9:30.   Hopefully, the weather will be a bit more accommodating this time!  Please bring side dishes and desserts to share!  Also, drinks for your family!  The pool is open to everyone and it will be HOT, prepare to get wet!!  Ribbons from last night will be available (and those from earlier if you haven’t picked them up yet!)



As everyone knows, each swimmer is responsible for raising $100 per season.  We have raffle tickets available for you to pick up and sell.  The raffle has three chances to win per ticket and are $5 each or 5/$20.  All tickets must sold and returned to us by AUGUST 23, at our awards picnic.  If you are unable to attend, let me know and we will arrange to meet ahead of time.  All raffle ticket sold per swimmer will count towards their $100 requirement



We are selling bracelets at practices and through swimmers at $6 each.  If you would like to receive fundraising credit you must take the bracelets in increments of ten and pay in ADVANCE.  You will receive $2 credit per bracelet and will then keep the money as bracelets are sold.  Please see POGA Board Members to pick them up if interested.



We are in the process of establishing a ballot for the POGA board.  We are looking for parents who are willing to serve on the board as At-Large members.  This will entail monthly meetings in the fall (usually skipping holiday months) and then monthly Jan-May.  Meetings during season are scheduled in evenings during practice.  At-Large members are expected to attend meetings and assist with organizational things such as picnics and set up/clean up for swim meets.  Please let Colleen Moore know if you are interested (  Ballots will be set and voted on at JSL Champs meet.  If you are not coming to Champs but would like to vote, please let us know, we can send you a ballot.  This is a great way to have input on swim team events!



I need to know by NOON tomorrow if your swimmers are not competing in the Championship meet.  Please respond directly to me via email or text even if you have already signed the book or told someone!!  If I do not hear from you, I am expecting your child to swim!  Failure to do so means another swimmer in the league did NOT get to participate!  Thanks for your cooperation!!



I will be sending out a separate email with Champs Info and T-shirt/Heat sheat sale information.  NOTE – prices are cheaper if you order online than if purchased at CHAMPS so pre-order if possible!!
