Urgent: Drivers Needed

SMS has 2 vans available to transport our team to Lawrence, KS on Dec. 1st. for the first meet of the season. Unfortunately, that is not enough seating for the whole team. If you are willing to transport team members to Lawrence please let us know. You must fill out the MVR form and return it to Karen Wagner, SMS Athletic Secretary, along with a copy of your drivers license.

In order to get driving approval in time, the MVR form needs to be submitted to Karen by Thursday 11/18.

Even if you are unable to help transport to Lawrence, please consider filling out an MVR form to assist with future needs.

2021/2022 Season Reminders

Important season announcements and reminders for the 2021/2022 Swim Season.

Team Registration

All swimmers and divers (both new and returning) will need to register for the team via this secure online registration form.

Your support of the team through Booster Club plays a critical role and benefits the entire team. In addition to providing much needed support for team activities and expenses including Senior Night, End of Season Celebration, athlete recognition, and the team website and related costs, each participant receives a team shirt and roster.

Please take a few moments today to submit your team/booster registration.  Your timely registration helps us update the team mailing list, order senior banners for display in the pool area, and ensures team shirts can be ordered as soon as possible so the boys can have them available for the early meets.   New team members, please note, this is different than the “team interest form” you filled out earlier.

Parent Meeting Thursday, Nov. 11

A Webex meeting will be held on Thursday, November 11th at 8:00pm. Meet Coach Berg, find out more about our team, and ask any questions you may have. Webex meeting Here
