2014 Swim Season is Here – Our 8th Season!!!

We’ve started gearing up for another great swim season…
You don’t want to miss it!!

We had two successful information sessions. Below is the handout from the sessions. Please feel free to share with neighbors who may not have been able to attend.

We are planning on having team T-shirts again. They will be a different color and will be included in the registration cost. We are looking to cover the expense of the T-shirts by asking for support from local businesses. That is where you come in!!

We’re looking to all of you to spread the word – if you have a business, know someone who does, or have a good relationship with a business, please consider helping. We are looking for 10 businesses to sponsor our team. Their business logo would go on the back of our team t-shirts for a cost of $100. We are only trying to cover the cost of the t-shirts.

If you are interested, or know someone who is interested, please send an e-mail to chair@cvswimteam.org
