SENIOR NIGHT TUESDAY
Tuesday night is our final home meet (not including A League) and we will honor our great senior athletes at 4:30pm before the 5:00pm meet. We are in need of several volunteers. As of Sunday morning only 6 of 15 slots were filled! Non-senior parents, please consider signing up for these positions so our senior parents can relax and enjoy (and maybe cry a little).
VOLUNTEER BACKGROUND CHECKS—DEADLINE!
Just two days left to comply—please fill this out if you haven’t! Arapahoe has asked us to ask all volunteers, ANYONE who has contact with students, to fill out this background check. It only takes a couple of minutes. Here is the message from the school:
The district is now requiring all volunteers to complete a background check in order to have contact with Arapahoe student-athletes. The fee for this background check is being paid by the district as long as this has been done by the end of the day on Tue. 4/30/19.
Please instruct all parents who are volunteering within your booster club program to click here <https://lps.ezcommunicator.net/edu/lps/login_form.aspx?app=0%20>
to complete the background check.
Please fill out this form ASAP…thanks.
Congratulations to freshman diver Collier Dyer for qualifying for State! Three of our five divers have now qualified.

Championship Meet suits – Arapahoe Swimming places a high value on swimmers wearing a championship meet “fast” meet suit. We have put out the info on the fast suits twice. The “high end” suits need to be ordered allowing 7-10 days shipping. Swim n’ Things has a few high end (higher prices) suits in stock, but the lower end suits (lower prices) are on the floor.
We recommend either Swim’NThings or a local vendor-“Out of Breath Sports” on Arapahoe Rd. Correct sizing is important. Check with your teammates and the vendor for accurate guidance
