Hello AZD Families!

At this time of year we are so thankful to have a wonderful group of girls and families to work with!  Please enjoy time with family and friends this holiday. 

Please let the coaches know if your swimmer will not be at practice as the weeks ahead get busy!


Upcoming Parent Meeting - Thursday, December 1st at 7:00 p.m.

The first meet of the season is coming up quick. 
December 3rd is the first figure meet and December 3rd and 4th is grades testing for levels 1&2.
More information will be coming soon specific to the meet.  
We will need parent volunteers for both meets- a signup genius was sent out, and the links are listed below as well.  Thanks in advance for your help and support. 

The weather is starting to "cool off" ~ so please sure to come to practice prepared!  This means you may want to bring a couple of towels, have some warm clothes to put on after practice, and throw your parka in your bag!  Also, even though the temperature is dropping, please continue to drink water!
This keeps you safe, happy and healthy!

Swim-A-Thon is this Saturday!  

The event will take place from 9-11:00 a.m.  Bring a treat or snack to share.  Also, with family and friends around, bring someone to count your laps for you!  

  • The girls have 2 hours to swim up to 200 laps.  
  • Saturday, November 26th from 9-11 am at Skyline Pool.  Swimmers can arrive at 8:45 to get warmed up.  
  • Any swimmer can participate.  Based on the family’s needs, funds raised will be used to offset either monthly dues or $150/$350 fundraising commitment.
  • Sponsorship forms have been passed out. 
  • For friends/family that are not local you may wish to ask for pledges via email, social media, etc.  I suggest using PayPal to collect payments via Friends & Family option because it is easy.  However, the means of collection is up to you.
Time to sign up!

We need your help as the season begins.  
Volunteering helps the meets run successfully.  
Please check out the links below for the information specific to these 2 different ways to volunteer.
