These girls did a great job this weekend at the first figures meet!
Thanks to the 13 and Over swimmers for helping out at the meet!
Hello AZD Families!
 
AZD Parent Meeting 
There will be a parent meeting this Thursday, November 3rd at 7:00 p.m. 
If you have any extra AZD wear that your swimmer will not be using, please feel free to bring it to the meeting to sell or give to any new swimmers.  We love to see "vintage" AZD wear that is still in good condition passed along to others.  
Also, any suits or parkas that are still in good condition are something that the new families are looking to purchase. 


We are excited to kick off some fundraisers this week!  Please come to Thursday’s parent meeting to:
  • Taste butter braids
  • Receive butter braid order forms
  • Get a t-shirt update (and hopefully try on some burnout tees.)
  • Receive info about our synch-a-thon coming on Nov. 26th!
Practice Time and Location Changes:
One more practice will be at Brimhall pool from 9a-12p for all Competitive Athletes (does not include beginning competitive who do not swim on Saturdays).
- November 5th


Routines for the New Season~
Swimmers were informed of the routines they will be swimming this year. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact one of the coaches, Lorette, Christine, or Katelyn. 

 
VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION

AZD Team Apparel

UPDATE FROM EAST VALLEY

Team shirt and gear update and reminders:

1.  To date there have been a total of 14 varied team shirts ordered.  The deadline listed on the custom team shirt store is next Monday night 11/7/16  for orders to be screen printed and to purchase at the prices listed.  Orders placed after Monday night will go up due to the cutting and heat pressing one at a time.  I was hoping to get enough initial orders on this order window to screen print.  If we don't get enough, the these will have to be heat pressed as well.

2.  Deadline for bulk processing and delivery for the team gear (minus the team shirts) is tomorrow midnight, November 1st. 

Here is the email link again for both of the stores:

Please note the order deadline date on the gear flyer of 11/1/16, and on the t-shirts 11/7/16.  This information is on the team store bulletins as well.

Reminders

  • During Competition Awards Ceremonies all AZD Swimmers are required to wear Black Capri Leggings and the 2017 AZD Polo, on occasion or when deemed appropriate by the coaches, we will also require the AZD Team Jacket to be worn (required for the Competitive Team only).

  • While on deck at a competition, swimmers are ONLY allowed to wear AZD apparel (good and original condition). No pajamas, street clothing, practice suits or caps will be allowed.  Your swimmer will be asked to change clothing if not in proper AZD apparel.

  • To prolong the life of team apparel and be assured that they are in proper condition, it is best to not wear Team suits, black suits or Team caps at regular swim practices.

  • Additional AZD apparel is available for siblings, parents, grandparents, and friends. It’s a great way to show team spirit!

Remember that each athlete will need to purchase the new 2017 shirt as a required part of their team gear.  

In addition, each girl will need to order the gray AZD Team
Sweatshirt
as seen in the picture below.  This is done through Jessie.  
Please email her to make contact if you need to order this item.  
The order needs to be placed through Jessie and the price is $46.  

Below are the links to East Valley Sports with all kinds of different gear! Please be sure to look at the information above to be sure that you order the appropriate gear for your swimmer.  

We are still looking into parent shirts as discussed at the parent meeting, but there are also great options for parents here!
