News and Announcements
I know must of us are either into vacation mode, Long course swimming and or summer league. We are not really looking that far ahead to a new registration season.
Registration is open and I have some exciting news!
The club has allowed us to offer some extra groups this year that one will help you save some money and two some nonmember groups to help maybe save some families thinking of leaving because it is to much and maybe bring back some of our swimmers.
We still have the same groups from last year and the same times.
What we have added is a discounted payment plan for those swimmers that swim HS and pretty much disappear the months of December January and February due to HS practice times. It is still an 11month plan and the swimmers still practice with Sr. Performance and get to participate in the Grind if they choose to.
The other two programs that we have added that are open to members and non members is a Beginner Starz group. This is for 8 and under and they will practice on Sundays and can choose to participate in all 8 and under meets in our LSC.
We still have the 10 and under Starz Development group for members and non members.
The program that I am most excited about is the Sr. Development Starz group. This will be a three day a week program offered to members and non members. It is offered to our Middle School and 12 and under swimmers. You pick any 3 days that works in your schedule. It is a 9 month option for short course season.
The other news is that no family will pay over 500.00 in registration fees. This will help out our families of three or more.
The club has asked that we have a Registration deadline this year of August 19,2019. I know most of you don’t usually get Registration done till the following week. The Billing department gets backed up in the process of all of this. So if you register after August 19th be prepared to pay registration fee and the first months billing dues.
Registration is open as of today. Front desk will have an information packet for you that you will take and keep. You should also pick up the appropriate billing packet. Everything in that packet must come back signed.
If you have any questions please ask myself or Brad.
I have attached the break down of groups and price list.
The document 2019-2020_Group_break_downs.docx was attached to this post.
Maryland Swimming Inc. LSC has adopted a new rule concerning technical suits for 12 and Under swimmers.
This coming fall season of 2019-2020 12 and under swimmers will no longer be able to wear a tech suit at all meets including championship meets.
They will be allowing a low tier tech suit and when that complete list comes out I will post it.
