SUPPORT YOUR DIVER BY VOLUNTEERING AND DONATING
Our Dolphins love nothing more than seeing their parents involved at the meets. There are a variety of roles to play — and one just right for you! Most require no preparation at all! Questions? Contact Claudia Tielking at [email protected].
DIVE TEAM APPAREL
We are keeping the same team suits from last year. Sport Fair is our supplier, and they'll be at our pool before and during practice on June 6 & 7. You can purchase a suit at that time, or you can visit their store at 5010 Lee Highway in Arlington.
Do you need new KGRC swag like a personalized sweatshirt, water bottle or silicone cap? Visit our Team Store. ORDER NOW - THIS WILL BE YOUR ONLY OPPORTUNITY TO BUY SPIRIT WEAR at https://kgrc2018.itemorder.com/.
DIVE TEAM ACTIVITIES
One team activity will be to attend a home game at Nationals Park. We've got seats reserved for the Sunday, July 8 game against the Miami Marlins at 1:35pm. More details to come. Wear your KGRC swim/dive team shirt and show your team spirit! First come, first served, so sign up and pre-pay with Sara Weinstock ([email protected]) if you are interested in attending!
