Hello all – a few important housekeeping details…

  1.  Team Snap will now be our primary method of communication.  Emails for general information, text messages for emergency or priority notifications like pool closings, weather delays, etc.  You MUST ensure that you have ACTIVATED your account (follow instructions in the invitation sent to the email on file, or contact us if you need a new invitation) and have set up preferences for notifications via EMAIL or TEXT.  All birthdates and addresses are hidden from view. IF YOU HAVE MORE THAN ONE SWIMMER: Our recommendation is to keep all notifications on for one of your swimmers, and turn them off for other swimmers. This will ensure that you do not receive multiple copies of each alert or message.  Go to Preferences, then Notifications to do this.
  2.  A test Team Snap email AND text message were sent this past Friday – please email us if you did not get one or both of them
  3. First day of practice is Tuesday, May 30th
  4. Last day to register a swimmer is Thursday, June 1st
  5. If you missed swim suit try on, we will offer one at the pool on Thursday, June 1st 4:00pm-6:00pm
  6. If you missed ordering a personalized cap – Merchandising will have generic Ulmstead caps available for $10 each.  
  7. Click here for an Ulmstead Spiritwear Price List that includes all of our items available through Annie & De.  Please deck yourselves out for the season!  (A few items are missing from the site and will be added shortly)
  8. TIME TRIALS / INTRASQUAD MEET:  We will be holding an official time trial “meet” on Monday night. June 12th running from about 6pm-8pm.  This is similar to time trials, but it is a GASL-sanctioned event and the times will count for the league.  Our volunteer coordinator, Alli Smith, will be assigning Timers, IT, Stroke & Turn and Starter officials.  These are official assignments.  The meet will only include our team, so it will be half the time of a regular meet.  You will not need to wear your team suit or cap and there will not be concessions that night.  Please be on the lookout for further details to follow.  
  9. Mark your calendar for Bay Hills pep rally at our pool on Friday, July 14th – details to follow
  10. Mark your calendar NOW!!  End of season banquet and pool party will be on Sunday, July 23rd – more details will follow later in the season.
