TIME TRIAL/SWIM MEET/VOLUNTEER SIGN UPS

Please visit Swimtopia NOW—don’t wait for the season to begin—to indicate your swimmer’s availability for swim meets. It’s super important to let us all know in advance (when possible) of swimmer absences from meets!! There is nothing worse than finding out at 7:30am on a Saturday morning that a swimmer on two relay teams and two individual events…….is not even in Virginia!

A quick note about volunteering…………..

We cannot have a swim team or swim meets without volunteers. Just to clarify…..we cannot have a swim meet………without…….volunteers. We get that not every family can volunteer at every meet, but if a family is at a meet, we expect at least one adult family member to be volunteering! Please visit https://socstingrays.swimtopia.com/volunteer-descriptions for information about the volunteer positions.
