Diving will be event one and will start the meet, followed by the swimming events.
Mostly JV swimmers will enter the Mullen meet. Priority will be given to those team members that attend practice consistently.

Please note: There were a number of swimmers that did not attend the scheduled practice on Saturday, March 16th…the day after the Cherokee Trail meet…? The AHS Coaching staff is concerned with the commitment / mental discipline of those swimmers who haphazardly miss practices.

The March team feed is Thursday 3/21 (previously Wed 3/20) after practice at the Agnvall home, 5429 East Mineral Circle, Centennial, CO 80122. The booster club supplies the entrees but we rely on parents to supply the sides and extras. Please sign up for 3/21 meal here:

Only H.S. Invite meet qualifiers will attend this meet. Entries are due on Tuesday. We expect to have a Saturday practice for non-meet entrants as our spring break is the following week. (Sunday- Tuesday)

Normally, the individual events are posted two days before a meet. The following day we make adjustments and complete the relays. However, this week the events will be posted one day before the meet (Monday, March 18th).

No Swimming practices will be scheduled practices on Sun, Mon, Tues of Spring Break. We will resume practicing on Wednesday, March 27. We expect all team members to attend the spring break practices listed below:

Wednesday, March 27 – Saturday, March 30
Varsity Swim 8-10:30 am
JV Swim 10:30am -12:15 pm
Diving 12:15 – 2 pm (Coach Smith may adjust the diving schedule to later in the day TBD)

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 ( *Please remember to volunteer for the morning breakfasts. We have two a week so need your help to feed the hungry boys. Thanks to all our great volunteers! Also we still need someone to do our End of Season Banquet program. A great project to do on your own time! Contract Lisa or Sandi if you can help. *

King Soopers is making a big change to their rewards program. No longer do we have to use reloadable gift cards, now we just use our KS rewards number and connect it to the booster club and every time you use your rewards number you’ll receive credit.

Directions on how to register:
Go to
Once logged into your King Soopers account look for the Community Rewards link on the left side of the screen, click on it search for Arapahoe High School Boys Swim & Dive either by name or LX676 and then click Enroll. New users will need to create an account which requires some basic information, a valid email address and a rewards card.

Customers must have a registered King Soopers rewards card account to link to your organization. If you do not yet have a King Soopers rewards card, they are available at the customer service desk at any King Soopers.

REMEMBER, purchases will not count for your organization until after your participants register their rewards card. Participants must swipe their registered King Soopers rewards card or use the phone number that is related to their registered King Soopers rewards card when shopping for each purchase to count.

It is our understanding that as more clubs register with the program you can link more than one program to your rewards account and you should be able to switch between which program you want your purchases to go towards. Any gift cards you currently have will not expire but if you reload them after March 31st those amounts will not be applied to your credits. If you have any questions please contact Kimberly Lefever
