Commitment to Swim

Parents - please be sure you have filled out the commitment to swim form.  We apologize if you've already filled out a vacation form, however we've had several that didn't save.  This is a one time "survey" where you will commit for the rest of the season.  Thank you so much for your patience as we work through the best ways to get swimmer information to the coaches!
