Well, our first parent meeting was canceled due to weather. ...SO, we've moved it to Tuesday, June 4th, 6pm at the pool.
This week also brings us two more events:
Time Trials = Saturday, June 8th, 8-11am
Time trials gives the swimmers an opportunity to get wet and get an updated seed time before the first meet, Low stress, I hear doughnuts might be present...
PMSL Officials meeting - Saturday, June 8th, 5:30-8pm
If you think you will want to help out the team in the capacity of a deck official - the PMSL annual meeting at UMd is an opportunity to get the required training. Stroke and Turn, Starter/Referee, and Data Manager training will be held. For more information and to sign up, see the PrinceMont League website.
See you around the pool!
The first swim meet on the 2019 PMSL schedule is June 15th, but there's a lot going on before that!
Most importantly, we need swimmers to register! Registration is easy - Online or in person. Don't wait until the last minute!
