Dear SCRA Swim Team Families,
Welcome to the 2007 Summer Swim Season!!! Although there have been many changes to the aquatics staff in the past year, there will be no shortage of quality instruction, enthusiasm and FUN in the new SCRA programs. With a little time, and the dedication and support of all SCRA swimmers, families and coaches, we can all make the 2007 Summer Swim season a huge SUCCESS!!
Attached is the registration form for the 2007 spring/summer swim team. Included in this letter are the dates of the swim meets, parent meeting, equipment order day, special activity nights, and other activities. Please mark these events on your calendars now so that you can to attend these important (and hopefully, FUN) events.
All families should plan to attend all of the dual meets, the relay meet, and the championship meet this year, the Championship meet is on Sunday, July 29th, so the summer swim season has been extended an extra week. Accordingly, I ask that all families plan your vacations for August (after the summer league championship meet), please. We want to show that in 2007, SCRA swimmers and their families are excited to have fun, improve performance and be a model of team spirit and support during the summer season!
The attached registration form contains an agreement contract which all SCRA parents must sign. This commitment requires all families to provide workers at 3 DUAL MEETS DURING THE SEASON AND EITHER THE RELAY MEET OR THE SUMMER CHAMPIONSHIP MEET. It is important that everyone understand and uphold this agreement. This year, all parents, new and returning are required to attend the parent meeting on Tuesday, May 8th at 7:00 PM in the clubhouse. Sign-ups for volunteer jobs will be explained. The web-based system for signing up for jobs will be launched on May 9th. PARENTSMUST SIGN UP FOR THEIR 4 POINT JOBS BY MAY 16TH. If you do not sign up by this day, you will be assigned jobs; it will be YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to find a replacement if you cannot perform the job. If you fail to meet the volunteer requirement, your child(ren) will not be able to participate in ANY future events. The first day of swim practice is on Tuesday, April 9th. Please read the group levels and practice times below in order to sign-up your child. Please mark the group you are signing up for on the registration form.
The special swim team swim lesson package is being offered again this year, but I am going to make a suggestion to all of you. Get the lessons done early in the season, this gives the kids a chance to work on their stroke technique and mechanics before they get to the first meet. Waiting until the last minute doesn’t give their strokes much chance on becoming a habit. We are working on a sign up method online through our website, when it is ready I will let you all know.
Please mail your registration form to: SCRA, Attn: Abi Liu; 875 Bowdoin Street, Stanford, CA, 94309. Or you can drop them off at SCRA any time. We are all looking for a great and fun season.
If you have any questions please call, (650) 857-1732, or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
