We are very excited to roll out our new online registration process through Club Assistant! Through Club Assistant we are now able to streamline the registration process by forgoing the usual paperwork associated with traditional registrations as well as process monthly tuition payments automatically. This means no more checkbooks! There are many more awesome features of this program and we are excited to finally have it set up.

This years United States Aquatic Sports Convention will be in Atlanta, Ga. from September 21st-25th. The USAS Convention represents USA Swimming, USA Diving, USA Synchro, USA Water Polo, and US Masters at the world level (FINA). The annual convention raises a significant amount of money that supports the teams in international competition.

Our Junior Olympic Diver, Savannah Brown, will also be attending the convention as an Athlete Representative. Savannah will also have the opportunity to sit in on important meetings regarding the future of USA Diving as well as vote for changes.
Coach Courtney's practices for this week (Wednesday, September 21st through Friday, September 23rd) may be altered, however, we are trying our best to keep practices running as normal while she is away.
