VE Swim Team: Deadline for Patti Wilder Meet is Wednesday June 9
Hello swim parents. The annual Patti Wilder/Cobb County Swim Meet is scheduled for the weekend of June 18-20. It’s loads of fun for the more competitive swimmers, and is totally optional for everyone on our team. Swimmers have the opportunity to compete against other swimmers in Cobb County, and the top finishers will be eligible to move on to the State Meet.
We aren’t sure yet if spectators will be permitted, but will share that asap. There will be an opportunity to Volunteer for this meet, and we will send those details to parents as we get closer.
The deadline to register is this Wednesday, June 9th, at 12 noon. There will be no exceptions.
How to sign up: You can turn in your entry fees (cash or check written to VE Swim Team) along with the events that your swimmer would like to swim to any coach or coordinator.
Fees: The entry fee for individual events is $7 per entry. The team will cover the cost of all relays. If you will not be at practice and would like to sign up for the County meet please let us know via email and we can make other arrangements for payment.
