Subscribe to get text messages about team (Text @pkygoblue to 81010). This is the main way I will communicate about changes to practices, important deadlines, etc.
All athletes must have a FHSSA physical form on file with the school (forms available in the front office or downloadable here: scroll down to important information and be sure to note there are two forms – physical form to be completed by a doctor and consent form to be completed by parent/guardian and athlete). Athletes are not allowed to TRY OUT, practice or compete without both forms filled out completely (FHSSAA rule.)
Participation Information (Must be filled out by all interested athletes by Friday, July 16):

Girls Suits: Jolyn Store (multiple design options). Store closes July 25. Suits will be mailed in bulk to save shipping cost.
Boys Suits: Agon Swim (jammers or briefs) Company only opens bulk orders for 1 week (July 3 – 10.) You may order after this but are responsible for personal shipping charges. https://beta.agonswim.com/teams/91894
