Summer season wrap-up…important details

Hello GMST families,

Yesterday’s official meet and today’s mini-meet marked the end of the 2016 GMST regular summer swim season. There are no more swim practices for your family this summer unless your child will be participating in the Divisional championship meet next Saturday (if so, you would have already received a message informing you). Congratulations to all our swimmers on their personal achievements during the season and for making this a fun swim season!

Before we say our goodbyes for the summer, and look forward to the fall swim season (more to come on that), there are two more major events on the calendar:

  1. The team picture on Tuesday, July 19 at 7am at the Greenbelt Pool (no divisional swim practice that day)
  2. The Annual Barracuda Banquet at Flowers High School on Saturday, July 23rd, followed by the Splash Party at the Greenbelt Pool
