Kentwood Invitational

Swimmers who are signed up to swim at the Kentwood Invite this weekend need to be to East Kentwood Aquatic Center by 7:45am. There will be a coach by the check-in table to help swimmers check in and show them where the locker room is.

Please remember that there are no parents allowed on the pool deck! The meet will begin at 9am and swimmers are free to leave when they are finished with all their events.

Swimmers need to bring with them: Towel, goggles, swim cap, suit. Also a good option to bring: a healthy snack, something to keep them busy that they are also not worried about getting wet, an extra towel, and a folding chair so they don't have to sit on the ground.

Please remind swimmers to be sure to pick up their area when it is time to go. Grandville has a great reputation of keeping their areas clean at away meets and we would love to keep this going!


Also on the website are sign-ups for the Zeeland Invitational (December 20), this is an optional meet. Entries are due by December 12.

Bulldog Classic

Parents, the Bulldog Classic Sign-ups are now in the stands and on the website. The entries are due on Friday, while this is an optional meet we would really like to see as many kids there as possible since we are hosting it. The cost is a flat $5.00 for up to 4 events.

We also have volunteer information posted on the pool stand doors. We are in need of volunteers for the afternoon session. If you know of someone who is able to help please see if they can sign-up. I am also able to give high school students service hours if they need them for helping as well!

Also on the doors are donation sign-ups for things we need for our concession stand. Please be sure than any beverages donated are coke products!

Finally please be sure to write names on towels, goggles, suits, and caps this way if they get left at practice I am able to return them to their owner.

I will have information regarding the kentwood meet out later tonight.

Thanks!
