REGISTER!
The most important thing right now is to make sure your athletes are registered. The info (we’ve published a few times before) is at the bottom of this document.

KUDOS FOR OUR BOYS
On our kickoff night, we had representatives of Swim n Things, a popular Denver swim shop that deals with hundreds of swim kids, teams and clubs every year. They’ve told us that the AHS boys were some of the greatest kids they’ve EVER dealt with. Be proud boys—that your goodness has been noticed, and that you are spreading the positive word about Warrior spirit.

DIVE IN
Looking for more boys who might want to dive. If you know any gymnasts, freestyle skiers or just adventurous dudes, please reach out and have them reach out to Coach Smith or the Dive Captains Danny and Robert.

2020 GEAR
All gear orders are due 2-15 by 5 pm. Register by 2-15 to guarantee your free team shirt and optional gear. Those who register after 2-15 are not guaranteed a team shirt and optional gear. If you have questions, contact Gear Chair Cindy Hayes cindydfm@gmail.com

If you didn’t make the meeting go to Swim n Things 5494 E Evans Ave. Denver CO 80222 (303) 757-8866 to try on the suits and all the optional gear. The team suits are not the same as last year and fit differently. Get all your supplies at Swim n Things, all AHS Boys Swim and Dive families receive 15% off all regular priced items and 30% of the higher end tech suits. Just mention you are with AHS Swim & Dive.

SAVE THE DATES
Thursday Feb 20--We are working on an open Booster Board meeting and parent mixer at a nearby clubhouse. More details coming soon.
Saturday May 2 – Sunday May 3—We are planning to host a booth at After Prom. This would be a great chance to pull an all-nighter and meet other swim parents. Details coming soon.

THIS TEAM IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY…
At the kickoff, Booster VP Marc Roswech talked about new opportunities for local businesses to sponsor the team for the season or a meet, and/or taking out an ad in a program. These funds could be a real help to purchase needed equipment or offset the rising costs of running a team. The Sponsorship/Advertising form is attached to this document.
