Hello Killer Whales!
We are so excited to have a fun packed season ahead of us! I wanted to send out an email with some updates for the upcoming season. Please reach out if you have any questions please reach out to me, Liz Cutrona 2021 Shellcrest Swim team coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Below please find two very important links, these must be filled out for your swimmer to be eligible to swim on Shellcrest's team, I know in the past if your swimmer had swam in previous years this was not necessary, this is not the case this year. Please indicate on your registration that this is complete for each of your swimmers, one form per family- please ensure that all of your swimmer are added to your form (if you have already mailed your registration- I will personally check in with you)

SWIM SUIT FOR MEETS
You can purchase these at The Swim Shop in Fairfax shopping center, there is a flyer attached with details of the suit. We are also doing a suit swap this season, bring your swimmers Shellcrest suit that they have out grown in hopes to swap for their current size. We will do the suit swap at 5pm BEFORE the swim team kick off dinner on June 6th.
KICK OFF DINNER
June 6th 6pm is our kick off dinner. We will provide dinner, bring your own beverages. BE ON THE LOOK OUT FOR A SIGN UP GENIUS FOR NEEDED ITEMS (sending out later today) and an email to RSVP that is being sent out is essential for us to have an accurate head count.
We are so lucky here at Shellcrest to have a talented team of coaches. We are led this year by Jack Coons as our head coach, Mary Kate Keegan, Will Keegan and Elizabeth Maher as our assistant coaches.
Please reach out to me if you are interested in lessons for your swimmer. It can be for the swimmer who isn't quite ready for swim team and needs help on basics, or your swimmer who needs work on diving, stroke mechanics or starts and stops. Any help they need, we can match them with the right swim instructor to have them swimming their best. Please in the email specify the swimmers age, what they need help with and we will connect you with an instructor.
For every swim team family we will need help to make our meets run smooth and timely. There is a job for everyone, I will be sending out job descriptions with each sign up genius and can help with any questions you may have.
