New Parent Information and Orientation 2018
April 26 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
The New Parent Welcome and Orientation is the Flippers’ first official event of the 2018 summer swim season!
This informal gathering is an opportunity for new Flipper parents to meet our Coaches, as well as members of the Club Executive, and to get answers to all their most pressing summer swimming questions, such as: Why do swim families have pop-up tents (don’t worry, we share!)? Why do I need to bring a highlighter to a swim meet? What do I do when I arrive at a meet? What do coaches expect from their swimmers? …And much, much more!
After the coaches introductions, they will then take the children into a separate room to do some fun team-building activities with them and answer any questions they might have.
Team Apparel size samples and Swim gear (suits and googles) will be in attendance. Though full team gear is not mandatory, it is a good idea to have at least a few Flipper clothing items, It not only solidifies your child’s identity as part of a team, but also helps other Flipper families recognize teammates in a crowd, cheer for them in a race or lend a helping hand when needed.
Last year’s event had a great turn out and was a huge success, and we look forward to welcoming all the new members to our Flipper family on April 26th!
