Please plan to visit the Chipotle across from the high school on Tuesday March 5 between 5:00-9:00pm. This is a big fundraiser for the swim/dive team and a tasty way to not cook dinner! The flyer for this event is attached. Please show the flyer or tell the staff you are there in support of AHS Swimming!

The team roster (Varsity, JV assignments) will be announced soon. The coaches need a little more time to prepare.

The volunteer sign-up has been updated with most events through the end of
the April heading into B Leagues. We have added a JV morning practice
breakfast every Tuesday morning. If you are interested in chairing this
position and budget, please email Lisa Wuthrich (
or Sandi Stephenson ( Thank you for the great response
we’ve had so far from our awesome volunteers. If you didn’t find a spot
that fit your schedule or interests last week, check it out now because
there are many new options. Thanks to everyone for pitching in! We really
appreciate it. Remember we ask that every family complete AT LEAST four volunteer shifts.

Saturday at 11:45am, about 15 minutes before the Araphaoe Relays meet, there will be a training on how to operate the timing console and scoreboard. Training will continue as the meet moves along. If you’d like to learn this skill, please come to the crows nest—we need to get more people trained. We especially need at least one freshman and one sophomore parent to learn, so they can take these duties in the years to come. No experience necessary. If you have questions contact Steve Bensen,

Please note a few changes in the master schedule, particularly the addition of:
Tuesday April 30, Senior Night/Lewis Palmer Meet
Tuesday May 28, End of Season Banquet

This week:

Parent Social: Tuesday March 12th. Join us on March 12 from 6:00-8:00 pm for a chance to meet the other parents on the team over food and drink at Casa Caliente (8800 S Colorado Blvd). Food will be provided by the Boosters, as well as good conversation and and a chance for the older (sorry…more experienced) parents to answer questions from newer families. This is a parents-only event. We hope you can join us!
