Team Shirts are in!


Our team shirts are now in. T-shirts were ordered based on what parents signed the order sheet on registration night back in September. Unfortunately there may not be a t-shirt for those who registered late or those who did not sign the order sheet on registration night. There may be a few left over at the end and we will try to accommodate those swimmers at that time. Parents who ordered a t-shirt on registration night can pick up the t-shirt on Thursday, October 27 from 3:45 p.m. - 4:15 p.m. @ Arts and Culture Pool

Deck Fee Collection for Pre-Competitive Swimmers/ Parents: (Ripples and Riptides) - Port aux Basques Fun Meet, November 4

Fees will be collected on Thursday, October 27th.  Parents can pay either Taylor or Cindy on deck during  swim sessions (3:00-5:00).  It would be much preferred if parents pay by cheque (Payable to the CB Rapids, cost = $40).  A list of the events are being provided(depending on number of entries) so parents can also provide us with a choice of the events  their child would like to enter.  Each swimmer can swim 4 individual events plus a relay.   

This is open to both Ripples and Riptides Groups. At this point we have received 6 commitments - the club requires 7 swimmers to attend this meet. 

A decision will be made shortly after 5pm on Thursday because entries will have to be sent that evening. It is a great experience for a beginning swimmer and lots of fun.
