Hello Avalon Gator Families!!

Summer is right around the corner, and the team at Avalon is planning for another exciting swim season. Carrie and Patty are excited to be returning as your parent representatives for this summer. We also want to welcome back Tim Dolan as our Head Coach and Elyse Cram as our Assistant Coach.  We also want to welcome Rachel Garland and Elliott Whelan as Assistant Coaches this summer.

Updated fee and practice schedules are posted on the website. It truly takes a village to run a swim meet and each year we are in need of parents who are willing to train for certain positions. Training schedules for these positions are now posted on the website. For your convenience these classes are available in person or online.

Practice begins on Monday, May 23rd. Practice schedules are posted on the website.

**NEW THIS YEAR** If your swimmer is 8 & under and has never participated in a formal swim team, summer or year around, they will be asked to attend an evaluation session so that the coaches can properly place your child in the correct program (Team, Pre-Team or Lessons). Please visit the website to sign-up for evaluations.

Avalon will hold an open house on Sunday, May 1st from 2 – 4 p.m. Team suits will be available for fittings and purchase at the open house. The professionals from the Virginia Swim Shop will be there to assist us with all of our swim gear. Team suits can also be purchased online via our webstore once registration opens up.  We will also be offering personalized caps this year. Orders for these caps will also be taken at the open house. The orders for personalized caps will be due in early May.

We are looking forward to a FUN summer swim season. We miss all of your smiling faces!! Come and visit us at the open house.
