Swim Team Registration Begins at Spring Junior Fair: Sunday April 15, 2:00-4:00

Summer is just around the corner, and the 2018 summer league swim season is about to begin. Registration for the 2018 Fox Den Red Foxes will begin at the Fox Den Spring Junior Fair on Sunday, April 15th from 2-4pm. We strongly encourage all families to register for the swim team at the Spring Junior Fair and see what other programs the club will be offering for our children this summer. Attending the Junior Spring Fair will give the swimmers and parents the opportunity to meet with teammates and coaches, order new swimsuits from the Swim and Tri representatives (we will be using the same suit design as last year), see this year’s new team t-shirts, and sign up for your preferred swim meet volunteer positions!

We are happy to announce that Coach Elizabeth will be returning this year as the Red Foxes Head Coach and Nora Gross, a Red Foxes alumna will be one of the Assistant Coaches this summer. Coach Elizabeth is actively looking for additional assistant coaches and hope to have all coaching positions filled by the time practice begins on Tuesday, May 29, 2018. Coach Elizabeth and Coach Nora are excited to be working with all of the Fox Den swimmers this summer.

We are looking forward to another fun and successful summer. After winning GKAISA League 3 last year we will be moving up to League 2 and will be competing against some new teams this year. Some we have encountered in the past several years as teams have moved between leagues and some will be teams that Fox Den has not encountered in many years. Regardless, it will be a challenging schedule and we are looking forward to fielding another strong and successful team.

Once again, we have worked very hard to help keep cost of participation down. Even with the capital expenditures by the swim team in purchasing new swim lane lines there will only be a nominal increase in member and non-member registration fees. Member cost will be $175 for one child, $275/2, $350/3 and $50 for each additional child. Non-member cost will remain the same at $295 for one child, $420/, $520/3 and $75 for each additional child. The cost for senior swimmers (15-18 years old) will be $85. Registration fees cover coach salaries and facility fees. In addition, each swimmer will receive one team t-shirt, one team swim cap and one end of season gift to commemorate the 2018 swim season!

Rob Burris will be taking over as Team Representative and will also continue as Meet Director. Blair Kerr will also be supporting the team in a more limited manner this year. We will be developing a team Board of Directors and will be counting on many families to assume some of the team responsibilities this summer. More information on this will be available at registration on the 15th

Finally, here are some important dates to make note of on your calendars, we’ll be forwarding more information on these events as we approach the start of the season:
