GATOR News: 2019 Championships at Greenhills (Yes 2019, it's not a typo!)
Hello GATOR Families,
We apologize for the flood of emails in these last few days, but there are still a number of important reminders and information that we need to share as we close out this summer of GATOR swimming :o)
Even though the 2018 season is nearly ready for the record books, the GATOR Parent Board and Coaches have already begun planning for next summer as the 43rd Annual Northern Suburban Swim League Championship Meet will be held in Greenhills at our very own Swamp on MONDAY, JULY 15 and TUESDAY, JULY 16, 2019. Please mark your calendar NOW!
For those of you who were not part of the GATOR Family in 2011 when we last hosted, it takes many volunteers and hours of planning to organize and execute an event of this magnitude. With that in mind, we are in the early stages of our own championship planning which involves connecting volunteers with an area of interest. Please look over the attached document which is a preliminary overview of championship volunteer needs and consider which area or areas might be of interest to you. We are currently creating an on-line committee sign up for the 2019 championships on the GATOR website too. Please consider getting involved now – although it involves a great deal of work, it is also a lot of fun. It is a great way to get to know other families away from the pool.
Finally, as you walk around Wyoming’s championships over the next two days, we invite you to look carefully at all aspects of this year’s championships. If you see something that you like and would like to see us incorporate it at Greenhills next summer, please let us know. Likewise, if you see areas that need improvement, make note of that as well. Also, please pay attention to the number of volunteers you encounter helping make the event run smoothly, and hopefully you will be inspired to pick a committee for 2019 soon!
At Greenhills, we are blessed to have many wonderful families who volunteer to go above and beyond in supporting our team. As always, thanks for all that you do for our swimmers this year and every summer!
The GATOR Parent Board and Coaches
