Reindeer Relays Thursday

Reindeer RelaysWe hope to see all our swimmers on Thursday for Reindeer Relays.  All age groups start at 7:00 PM.

Note: There will be a Varsity Meet right before us.  

Oh, you’re a first timer?  Don’t know what Reindeer Relays is?

It’s an NCST tradition.  It’s an endurance challenge where we put all the athletes in the water and see who lasts the longest.  That swimmer gets to be Rudolph!  It’s super competitive.  Nah, just kidding, it’s a night of fun and crazy races.  Just how crazy? Come and find out!

There is a lot of information in this email, please read the entire email thoroughly.

1 – Unable to Participate

All registered swimmers (as of 12/28/2017 at 6:00 PM) will be entered into the meet. You must let us know if your athlete will not be participating.

Swimmers not showing up will affect relay teams (3 other swimmers) so it is imperative that you let us know if your athlete is not participating by 6:00 PM on 12/28/2017.  This isn’t like RSVPing to a family party, if we don’t have an accurate participation count, other swimmers will lose chances to swim.

By 6:00 PM on 12/28/2017, let us know your swimmer is unable to participate.

We Cannot Participate in the 1/6 Home Swim Meet

Likewise, if your swimmer has not actually registered for the team yet, he or she will not be entered into any events. Please register by 6:00 PM on 12/28/2017.

2 – Concession Donations

One way we keep our registration fee low for NCST is by generating revenue from our home meet concessions. Unlike the normal school sports concessions where items are purchased, marked up, and then sold, The NCST relies on items that are purchased and donated by you the parents of the team. This way, your contribution of a box of candy or bag of apples is magnified and really helps the team.

Click the link below for a list of things we need for the coming meet(s). Please sign up for at least one of the items, or more if you are able : ). If you are short on time and do not have time to run out and pick something up we will also take cash donations that we can use to purchase what we need. Please bring your donations to the pool deck during practice. We have a great tradition of support by the team parents and it makes a huge difference so thank you very much!

I Can Donate Items to the Concession Stand

NCST is a 501(c)(3) corporation and your donations may be tax deductible.

In addition, we are looking for volunteers to help run the concession stand as well as apprentices to learn the concession stand operations.

3 – Volunteers

We have several volunteer needs to help keep our swim meets running smoothly.  Please consider signing up to help the team out on Saturday, January 6, 2018.

Never helped before? No problem, we will train you, help you and thank you profusely!

Clean Up Crew, Timers, Marshalers and Greeters… they are all easy jobs.

I Can Volunteer!
