Reminders and clarification

posted Aug 29, 2017, 6:14 PM by CAC Webmaster

Hello All!

A question was raised about a swimmer being interested in both diving and swimming. We wanted to offer some clarification. If you are just interested in only diving, you would pay the diving pricing for your child. If your child is interested in both swimming and diving, you would pay the full price for swimming. For the pricing of diving, you would pay a flat $100 in addition to your swimming fees for each diver. This is done to off set the price of both swimming coaches and a separate diving coach.

This season, we will have a new athlete evaluation night on Tuesday, September 12 from 6:00-7:00 PM at William Tennent HS pool.

If you know anyone who might be interested in our team, please refer them to this night.  It is also a night where you may bring in your registration forms and payment too.
  

There are three attachments to this e-mail.  

1. Program Information - explains the swim groups, practice times, equipment required, and meet information
2. Registration Information - registration form, fees, and concussion form
3. Parent Volunteer Information - all parents are required to assist at meets; there are forms to be filled out for what kind of volunteer position you would like to help the team with during meets as well as a Safe Kids Volunteer form too. With the increase in safety at schools as well as our insurance company, we need the form completed in order to make sure everyone is safe. Thank you in advance for your understanding!

United States Swimming
 

We are also encouraging participation in United States Swimming. There is a description in the program information document. US Swimming is in addition to SAL dual meets.  Athletes are offered four meets to participate in during the season.  Athletes  may swim in as many US Meets as their schedule allows.  Three meets are close to CAC and one meet would require an overnight stay at Penn State!  

The major piece of info we need is to know if you are interested and if so, are you willing to commit to any of the first two meets - Upper Dublin and Penn State.  Entries for those meets close quickly - we need to know by Sunday, September 3 so we may enter the meet.  

5% Discount on full fees until September 2nd!


Thank you,
Meghan and Jamie
