Long Course Season / Meet Schedule

After the finish to a great short course season, we move on to the long course swimming season, where all of our meets in the spring and summer are swum in a long course or 50 meter pool rather than a short course 25 yard pool.

The first long course swim meet will be our Arena Long Course Invitational to be held April 28-30 at the Baylor School Natatorium. We will then follow that meet up with the UltraSwim OPEN (June 4-5) that our club will host as well. Finally, please also take notice that the scratch deadline for the Richard Quick Invitational in Auburn, AL (June 23-25) is early. This meet fills up very quickly so entries will be due early in order to secure a space in the meet for our team. The link to the spring / summer long course meet schedule is available below and, all meets for the spring / summer have also been posted on the meets-info/results page on the website.

News from the Club Office
Parents, I just want to review some billing items with you. The TeamUnify system will bill accounts to you on the 1st of every month. The statements will contain your monthly dues and any other charges such as caps meet fees hospitality fees, etc. and a late fee will be assessed on the 21st of each month. Any payments that are unable to be processed on the 1st will accrue processing fees in addition to the charges. This fee comes from our processing merchant. Any accounts that are 30 days past due will result in your child being held out of the water.

Our developmental sessions are 8 week sessions so you will receive statements bi-monthly with the monthly dues. As long as you are registered before the first day of the session you will be ready to participate in that session. Once you have registered the first time you will no longer be charged the USA and Club registration fees. Those fees are only charged at the beginning of each new swim year. Through TeamUnify you will automatically be billed for the next developmental session unless you have emailed the club by the 5th day of the month preceding the next session. So if you do not want to participate in session 2 you must email the club no later the October 5th. Telling your coach that you are not doing the next session will not keep you from being billed. Be sure to send the email to the club.

We will not allow children to practice until the online registration has been completed.

If you are planning on taking a break and your child is in AG, Junior, or Senior, remember in order not to be billed for the next month I need to have written notification at least 30 days in advance. So for example, if you know you are not going to swim in December I must receive an email from you stating that no later than Nov.1. If the written statement is not received by that date you will be charged. Please understand that telling the coach does not count as proper notification. Notifications must be sent to Laura Pitman.

If you have any further questions please email Laura Pitman
