“Individual commitment to a group effort — that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.” – Vince Lombardi
Parental involvement is a key element to the success of Rose Valley’s Swim and Dive teams. Each family is encouraged to volunteer. We are a small team, and appreciate the efforts of all our families. If everyone gives some time, each volunteer may only have to work a portion of each meet. We are happy to provide training for all positions and will pair you up with an experienced volunteer! Prior to every meet, a SignUp Genius will be sent out with specific volunteer roles to be filled for that meet.
The team suit for 2018 is the same as it was for 2017. Swimmers are not required to have team suits. We are using Toad Hollow as our vendor again this year – this is a link that will get you to Step 3 in the instructions below:
1. Go to Toad Hollow’s website toadhollowathletics.com
2. In the search bar at the top, put in “Rose Valley”
3. Select the suit(s) and size(s) needed (should be TYR diamondfit 2018 Black/Red)
4. At Checkout, select “Pickup At Store” so that you aren’t paying any extra for the suit AND so your suit will be put aside with the other Rose Valley suits.
5. You’re All Done!
SUIT ORDERS MUST BE MADE BY 6/1/2018 FOR A 6/8/2018 DELIVERY. ANY ORDERS PLACED AFTER 6/1/2018 MUST BE PICKED UP AT TOAD HOLLOW YOURSELF OR MAILED TO YOUR HOUSE!!!
Our team uses Team Snap for communication regarding practice updates (e.g., cancellation of practice due to weather) and for swimmers to indicate their intent to swim in a particular meet. It is available as an app for your smartphone. There is also a website that can be accessed. If you need access, please email the Swim Team Administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org and you will receive an invitation to join.
Swimmer and Family Handbook
Our handbook provides all of the information you will need – coaches’ expectations, practice information, meet information, etc.
