Save the Date! Swim Team Info Meeting April 27

DSC_2027Save the date! A Lake Monsters Summer Swim Team informational meeting will take place Sunday, April 27 at 2 p.m. in the aquatic center community room.

It is important that ALL interested parties attend this meeting. We are in the process of determining practice times and other resource commitments (coaches, lane space, meets, events, etc.), and we need to get a good handle on our overall participation.

The following will be discussed:

  • Summer Practice Schedule (starts June 16)
  • Summer Meet Schedule
  • Summer Event Schedule (Water Daze and others)

The pool is open during the meeting, so bring your kids and they can swim during the meeting if they wish!
