Schedule Changes, This Week
Parent Social, Tuesday

From Coach Richmond: The meet with Cherokee Trail is at Cherokee Trail H.S. We expect to have an excused earlier release from sixth hour by 3pm. A list of participants will be sent to the attendance office to excuse our swimmers and divers at 3 pm. We will depart at 3:10 from the south Arapahoe circle drive.

We will not take all team members to the meet because we have limited lanes and events to enter swimmers. We may schedule a practice for the JV swimmers or Varsity swimmers that do not attend the meet on Thursday – T.B.D.
Note: Swimmers that do not attend practices will practice instead of compete on Thursday.

The meet results will be posted each week in the Documents section of the left side of the AHSSwimDive site.
Last week’s meets are posted. Note that there is a Results tab on that site but the functionality is not good so we place them in Documents.

State Qualifiers are now listed on the AHS Swim Dive Main Page They are on the right side of the page under the schedule, listed by Class, then Alpha. We will update as we are notified by the coaching staff. (If you think your athlete should be added, email Tom Giesen at and we’ll confirm with coaches.)

Gear orders will be distributed Monday at practices. Divers, please arrive at 4:45pm to pick up before practice. Backpacks, towels and suits for boys who registered late will be in next week. If you have any questions about gear or exchanges, please contact Cindy Hayes

Our team runs on volunteers! We ask that each family take at least four volunteer shifts per season. (You can opt out of this volunteer requirement by paying $200.) The volunteer sign-up has been updated with most events through the end of the April heading into B Leagues. If you have any questions, please email Lisa Wuthrich ( or Sandi Stephenson ( Thank you for the great response we’ve had so far from our awesome volunteers.

Some parents have asked about linking the AHS Swim Dive schedule to other scheduling programs. Unfortunately that is not an option with this Active software. The software we use does have an email notification option for calendar changes. The plan is to put long-range changes in this weekly update, and send a calendar email alert if it’s a last minute change.
The full season calendar is updated regularly:

Wed April 15—The Team Feed has changed from 4/16 to 4/15.
Wed April 24—The Regis meets (Swimming at AHS, Dive at Regis) have changed one day, from 4/23 to 4/24. The times and locations remain the same.
Thurs April 25—The Overland meet has changed from an Away meet to a Home meet. It has been added to our Volunteer signup sheet.

This week:
Tues, March 12—Parent Social (see below)
Thurs, March 14—5:00—AHS at Cherokee Trail

Parents: Join us Tuesday 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!
