Welcome back TigerSharks!
We are looking for some help this season.
Instead of hosting our own snack bar at the meets, we would like to move into bringing in a food truck/cart for our home events. If you know of someone or have a contact, please contact us.
There are also a few board positions still open this season.
Please look over the contacts page to see positions still needing to be filled.
Interesting in helping?
Contact Kristin Hurd firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you to everyone that helped at meets and events this season. It takes the whole village to make this team work.
For next season, we need some help filling out our board and head positions.
If you are interested in helping out more with the team, please let us know ASAP.
We need your help TigerSharks!
Each meet takes a lot of organization from the coaches to seed all the swimmers that are attending.
We NEED to know who is coming by Monday evening the week before the meet.
The amount of work and time that went in to the scratch session for Placerville was too much for a meet day.
If you are not signed in by Monday night, you will not be swimming in the meet.
We also need to know if you are not coming so that we don't have to make a lot of changes on meet day.
Emergencies and illness come up, we understand that, so let us know as soon as you can if you will be missing meet day.
Please make sure to sign in through the Active Swim Portal (Link above) on the VIEW MEETS page. (See the picture below)
Check the bulletin board on deck when the meet sheet is posted to make sure your swimmers are listed and to make sure they are not listed if you do not plan to attend.
Thanks for your help!
