2019/20 Season Announcements & Reminders

Important season announcements and reminders for the 2019/2020 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.

Timely registration helps us update the team mailing list and ensures team spirit wear can be ordered as soon as possible so the boys can have it available for the early meets. If you register before November 20th, we will be able to order t-shirts have them available for the boy’s first meet on December 4th. Registration received after the 20th will still be accepted, but t-shirts won’t be available until late December. New team members, please note, this is different than the “team interest form” you filled out earlier.

Team Suits

Order suits by November 24th via Swim Quik Website to receive free shipping and delivery before our first meet on December 4th. A representative from Swim Quik will be on hand to fit the boys on November 19th.

Meet Schedule

The Sunflower League has released the meet schedule and all meets have been added to the event calendar (which includes Google Maps for event locations.)

We work toward keeping the website as up to date as possible but also recommend checking the League Calendar and our weekly emails for the most accurate information.

Parent Volunteer Sign-Up

Throughout the season volunteers are needed to support the team. From traditions like Saturday after-practice doughnuts, to team dinners and away-meet lunches, and organizing the end-of-the-year banquet, the team needs your help. Please review the opportunities available and sign-up using the SignUp Genius Links below.

Thank you for your support.

Team Communications

The SMS Raider Swim Website (including the event and practice calendar) and the team mailing list are the primary communications tools used throughout the season.

All physical, participation, and concussion forms are due to the Athletic Director’s assistant by Friday, November 15th to begin practice on Monday, November 18th. You can find more information HERE and HERE.
