Spring & Summer Swimming

A big thank you to everyone that emailed by the March 15 deadline to indicate their participation in spring/summer.  We will now move everyone that did not send an email or is not participating in spring /summer into an inactive group on Active.  This will make room in our full group for new swimmers.  This will also take you off of our Active.com email list, but will keep you on this email list.  If you want to be removed from all emails, simply scroll to the bottom of this and click unsubscribe.  
If you are continuing, you will receive information about how to pay fees next week (this information does not apply to continuing seniors & juniors).
