Last Updated: April 30, 2018
It’s time to REGISTER for the 2018 swim season!
- We're doing a second run of personalized swim caps! We have to meet a minimum order of 25, so I can't promise that the order will make. The deadline to order is Friday, June 8 and the caps should be ready around the second week of the season.
- Team Suits will be sold by Sport Fair, either at their location at 5010 Lee Highwy in Arlington or at the pool on JUNE 6 & 7.
- New to the KGRC Swim Team? Sign up for RAINED OUT to get text alerts about weather and other important information. Go to the website and find Kent Gardens Recreation Club. You will have the option of receiving General Membership alerts, Swim Team and/or Dive Team. Select General Membership and Swim Team for best results.
- It’s NEVER TOO EARLY to set your volunteer schedule for the season! Remember, if you have a child swimming, then someone from your family should be in blue shorts and a white shirt on the deck working the meet!
- "So many dates!" I know. That’s why we build an importable calendar.
- "I’m new to the team and I have many, many, many questions." The answer is probably in the Swim Team Handbook. Please, please take pity on a working mom/volunteer and look for the answer there first before you email me.
Looking forward to seeing you on deck!
