In just 14 weeks, the swim and dive season will begin with our first practice. Since it is just around the corner I wanted to share a few things with you:
First, as we have done in years past, we are offering local businesses the chance to partner with our team through the sponsorship program. For a small marketing fee, the business will have the chance to advertise by proudly putting their logo on the team shirt and banner. Also they will get a high-five mention at the end of the year parties. If your business would like to participate,or you know of a business who would, please contact Jud Morrison at 205-335-9222. New this year – if you bring in a sponsor, you will receive $25 off your child(ren)’s registration when the sponsor pays. Details to follow.
Second, speaking of registration, here are the key dates for the season. Please note – the JSSC meet schedule is far from complete so those dates are subject to change.

Last, we have to have volunteers, especially for Stroke and Turn and Computer Operator. A couple of dads stepped up the past two years but we have to have more help. New this year – I will sign for community service hours for any student who volunteers for any position (except Starter/Referee). Give me a call to discuss how you can help.
More information and detail is to follow (yay, lots more emails!) so keep an eye out. And remember, opting out of Shades Cliff Pool emails hurts only you.
If you have any questions, please give me a call anytime.
