The roster(click here) has been updated. We will not take anyone other than those listed on the roster until after the registration process which means we will not add anyone else until mid-September. I have already posted the new training schedule. Here is the next step for ALL families:
Due to the large number of new swimmers and our allowance by the college to add Sundays we will attempt to make room for all. At this point we need to respect the returning families and allow them first crack at the training schedules. So...
Returning families may start emailing Monday 8/22 at 8am. No emails sent prior to that time or to any email other than firstname.lastname@example.org will be accepted or honored. Returning families may include new family members' to the team schedules also.
Families new to the team - with no no returning members - may start emailing Tuesday 8/23 at 6pm. Again nothing earlier or any email sent to any other address than email@example.com will not be accepted or honored.
Here is what each family will Email:
We have (x) number of swimmers:
Swimmer (name) who is in the (name of) group would like to train x, y and z evenings (and time of practice if multiples on a same night are offered):
If you have multiple swimmers please do the same for each.
Make sure you include corrected name of swimmer if not accurate on the roster. Please also include alternate evenings for training in the initial email if possible.
Please understand this is first come first serve and I will be reviewing a lot of emails. Be patient and follow these guidelines. If you are a returning family and email after new families may request schedules you will fall in line behind them. ALL GROUPS other than my Blue Seniors must request practice nights. They basically need to be there every night anyway.
Here's to a wonderful new team, dynamic and season.

GBSA is set-up on a quarterly basis. The quarters are:
Once you begin a quarter, YOU ARE FINANCIALLY COMMITTED TO THAT QUARTER -- NO EXCEPTIONS. (Serious physical illness or injuries are obvious cases for leniency). For example, if you start swimming in March, then later decide that another commitment is taking too much of your time, YOU STILL MUST PAY for the remainder of the quarter (April and May).
You have the option of paying on either a monthly or quarterly basis. Dues must be paid by the 15th of each month (or by the 15th of the first month of the quarter if you pay quarterly).
(or Monthly Payment)
