With our first couple weeks of practice, the mock meet, and our first thunderstorm behind us, we’re ready for anything!
MOCK MEET SUCCESS:
Great Job everyone! I am so proud of all our kiddos – we have such a wonderful group of folks in our Village.
Thank you to everyone who volunteered this week at our mock meet! We had several volunteers that were new to their positions tonight and everyone did a great job. I want to say a special shout out to Eddie and Chris for learning the clerk of course duties. You guys did a fantastic job and had it down by the end of the night. I also want to say a special shout out to Eric for heading up the timers and getting all the kids times down. Next week will be our first official meet and I hope everyone is looking forward to it. If you volunteered in a position that you liked tonight please make sure and sign up on the volunteer sign up sheet. If you saw a position that you might like to learn let me know and we will make it happen.

We sincerely hope you have enjoyed swim team this year!
Not only is it a fun and healthy sport for our kids, it’s a great opportunity for kids and parents to meet other families in our neighborhood. Many friendships with neighbors have been made because of swim team!
Sadly though, almost all of the required board member positions will become vacant next year due to either children aging out of swim team or members having reached their term limit.
To ensure swim team continues next year, we need parents to join the board and fill these key positions.
Next year will be the 14th year for the Charleston Village Crocodiles swim team, if it continues. Please keep the fun going for our kids next year and long into the future by joining the CV Crocodiles Swim Team Board now!
