2013-2014 Important Information – Please Read

July 24, 2013

The Kick-Off Party for the swim and dive team is on Sunday, August 25th from 5:00 – 7:00 at Jester Club (7809 Jester Blvd  Austin, TX 78750).  The meal served will be charged based on a per-person fee, yet to be determined (usually a nominal cost). Please RSVP with # of people attending to:  erbrown99@hotmail.com   The entire family is welcome.  
PLEASE BRING:  your checkbook, your calendar, and a lawn chair, as seating can run out. 
This will be an informational, but fun gathering.  You will be able to order the team suit, warm-ups, T-shirts and caps which are not part of the booster club fees.  Parents are welcome to order shirts for themselves too. 
We would like for you to pay your booster club fees at this meeting, though the final cost won’t be determined until after our sponsorship drive which is going on now. That information will be sent out as soon as we have it. 
There are still volunteer positions open, so be ready to put your name down to join a group of AMAZING booster club volunteers.
You will be able to meet the team, captains, coach and other parents — so please come!!
Physicals must be completed

Physicals must be completed by the first practice.  If your child has not had a physical in over a year, you need to schedule one.
The physician must review and sign your child’s form available on our website under “Resources”.
Practices for 2013-14 season
Practices begin August 21-23 at 6:45am at the Anderson Mill Pool.  Make sure your child comes ready to workout and brings his/her completed physical form.  Practice will not be held the first two days of school, but be ready for practice at 6:45 on August 28th.  Each swimmer is responsible to get to the pool, but AISD will provide a bus from the pool to Anderson once school begins. Team members are expected to be at practice every day, though the last B day of the week we meet at the school weight room at 7:00am.  It’s a good idea to begin learning to go to bed earlier!

Each swimmer / diver is issued a parka and a team gear bag, distributed in the first few weeks of school.  AISD provides one team t-shirt which are ordered once we know the sizes.

Spirit Fest – September 7
Trojan Spirit Fest is arriving quickly on September 7th.   We will be asking for volunteers to specifically help out at the Fest where we are hosting the “JAIL”.  This festival has many different games and food/drink booths. 
This is an important way to raise money for the booster club, so please plan to come.  It’s a great place to buy all things Trojan from various teams and clubs and is a wonderful family event.
Booster Club Meeting – September 9
Our first Booster Club Meeting will on September 9.  More details to come.
