4/13/22 Announcement from Coach Debra

Hello Gators!

I hope that the warm weather and Spring Break have you thinking about Summer Swim! It is coming quickly, we are at the pool is less than 7 weeks. Here are a few exciting and quick facts about this summer.

The registration fee will remain the same as last year, the Early Bird Fee is $175 per swimmer if registered by May 20th. We will be holding two in person signups at the Betty Queen Center from 6:30-7:30 on the following dates: April 18 & May 17. After the Early Bird deadline the fee will be $200.

Practice begins May 31 with both morning and evening practice. The times will be similar to last summer, actual schedule will be available at signups and via email next week. All needed registration forms are attached to this email and will be on our website by next weekend.

We will be ordering new suits this summer from Rivanna Gear & Apparel. They will be coming to Louisa to fit suits at sign up dates listed above so bring your swimmers. The suit will be made by Dolfin and you will be able to order it online from RGA. They will also have other items available for us. I am waiting for final price and will let you know ASAP.

We are looking for swimmers who are interested in serving as Junior Coaches during the summer. Please let me know if you have swimmers who are interested as I hope to hold a meeting/training session before we start, we hope to provide food at this meeting which should encourage everyone to come! Our “confirmed” coaching staff for this summer will be me, Lauren Dessent, Dyllan Hartman, Alison Soriano and Caleb Straley.

We will be fundraising again this year and will be providing opportunities in the near future. I have attached the sponsor form for this year, please try and check with local businesses and/or places where you or family work or frequent. Each swimmer should attempt to raise $100.

Additional information will be coming from me often in the next few weeks. Please forward this email to anyone who doesn’t receive it or is new to the team. I will try to add to my group email addresses regularly but please let me know if you don’t get emails or group texts. I hope to see you all soon!

Coach Debra
