Summer is around the corner

I can't believe we will be starting summer swim team in 5 weeks.  The swim team is busy getting ready for summer and so is the swim club.  The registration for summer swim team is posted.  You will notice that we have a morning registration and an evening registration.  The morning swim practice is offered just as it has been in the past.  When you sign-up for morning swim practice your child will attend their age division practice daily.  The evening swim practice is being offered to swimmers 12 and under who have not been able to participate in the past due to parents work schedule.  For the first time we will offer an evening swim practice (if the demand is there with a minimum of 8 swimmers) for a maximum of 16 swimmers.  This practice will only be Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 7:00-8:00pm.  The evening practices will be offered to the families that register first due to the limited space and they will be contacted to let them know the status of this.  Please note your swimmer may only participate in the swim practice in which they registered for.
I hope you have noticed the many changes on the blog.  All information posted on the blog will also be posted on our Facebook page.  Please like the Green Mountain Swim Team on Facebook so you can receive updates here. You can also subscribe to the Gator blog by entering your email and this will send you an email daily if the blog has been updated.  I have also created a google calendar with important swim team dates and am working on allowing you to copy this calendar into your own (so this is coming soon).  Hope these tools are helpful and will help you stay current on things that are happening.
The pool is busy getting ready for us to start swimming.  If you drive by you will notice they have repaired the parking lot.  They will also begin the process of filling up the pool to get the water ready for us.
Summer will be here before we know it!  Please register your swimmers and we will plan to see you on May 18th for after school swim practice.  Please continue to check the blog frequently as we prepare for summer swim team.

Year-round swimmers May 15th deadline

Here is a reminder regarding year-round swimmers deadline as we will begin our summer swim team registration soon. Swimmer may NOT practice or compete with another summer club swim team, year-round team, etc. on or after May 16. This means if a swimmer is currently swimming with a year-round team they will have to quit swimming with this organization by May 15th if they will be swimming as a Gator during the summer.

Taken from FSA Bylaws:
On or after May 16 of the swimming season, a swimmer may practice only with their summer club swim team and compete only in their summer club swim team’s meets in order to be eligible. To clarify, a swimmer may NOT practice or compete with another summer club swim team, year-round team, etc. on or after May 16. To further clarify, a swimmer may not for example swim unattached in a USA swim meet on or after May 16. A swimmer may swim in a charity type event with permission of the state board. Notwithstanding the above, a swimmer may practice or compete on or after May 16 interscholastically or intercollegiately without losing their eligibility to swim in the FSA.

FSA League Webmaster

If anybody is willing and able to volunteer to take over the role of webmaster for the FSA League website, please contact me. You would be responsible for posting meet results every week during the season, posting qualification times, etc. Offseason responsibilities would be little to none.
