Gulf Swimming 2017-2018 Short and Long Course Meet Schedule Announced

The proposed meet schedule for both short course and long course for 2017-2018 can be found HERE.


New Officials Needed

Did you know that the USA Swimming Officials that run the meets your swimmers attend are all just parent volunteers?  Did you also know that regardless of which team is hosting it would really help our swimmers if there were officials representing all teams attending helping to run the meet? There is no better way to get involved with your child’s chosen sport than to become an official.  Please see the flyer HERE and contact Andrea Walin at andrea.walin@gmail.com with any questions or concerns!

Note for "Fillable" pdf files:  Windows 10 will use Edge as the default program for opening all pdf files. Being a browser/reader, Edge doesn’t have editing features and the fillable function of the pdf document will appear not to work.   Open fillable pdf files with either Google Chrome or Adobe Acrobat (Internet Explorer 10 and older will work too), then the fillable features will work.  Adobe Reader will have the same problem as Edge
