Hello Red Dragon Families!
Sorry this is a day late!
Practice this Week
We have practice Monday-Wednesday this week! We do not have practice on Thursday or Friday due to the holiday!
FANTASTIC JOB to our Red Dragons who swam at the FMY IMX Meet this past weekend! There were so many best times I lost count! Big congratulations to our Red Dragons who attended their FIRST meet this past weekend! They did an awesome job! Ribbons will be at the pool this week for you to pick up!
I attached the entries I have received for the WFF Meet. Please let me know of any issues by tonight at 8PM.
The date on our website was incorrect. This meet will be on December 9th! Entries are due on MONDAY, November 27th.
We officially have our date for our Home Meet! We will be hosting a meet on January 13th. Meet information is LIVE and ready for you to declare your events! Every year Red Dragons host 1-2 meets a year to help keep our monthly dues low for our families. We do not require volunteer hours but we do ask for help to host these 1-2 meets to help keep costs down for you! Please take time to look over the sign up and help us out at our meet!
We have been asked to host 2024 Summer MRC. As you know the Fargo/Moorhead swim teams are very fortunate to have access to the Hulbert Aquatic Center for meets. It is also a pool that can be utilized as a long course pool during the summer season for long course season. Minnesota Swimming is struggling to gain access to another long course pool for the 2024 Summer MRC Meets. We usually attend this meet in the cities but Minnesota Swimming is asking our team to host 2024 Summer MRC at the Hulbert. We will need families to fill out the form below to see if we are capable to hosting this meet. The meet is July 12-14th, 2024. We will need responses by THIS Wednesday 6PM as it is a sensitive timeline. Please take time to fill out the form below at your earliest convenience.
If your athlete is not USA registered your athlete can NOT attend practice. To register your athlete in USA Swimming please go to our Website, click Registration, click USA Registration Link in blue, and follow the directions from there. 
High School Athletes and Qualifying Meets
If your athlete is attending and meets with our team that require a qualifying time and you want to use their High School times you will need a proof of times report from your High School coach or the results of the meet. You can only use meet results or proof of times for State-level meets or lower. Any Sectional, Zone or National Meets have to be MN High School State Meet, ND EDC or ND State Meet. Any other meet does not qualify them for Sectionals, Zones or National Meets. All proof of times and meet results need to be sent to Coach Jess as many meets will ask for proof of times.
Team Sponsorships
Every year we have sponsorship available for companies you know or may work for! Please take time to share it on your social media or ask your company if they are interested! Below is the link for our team sponsorships! If you have already submitted payment as a sponsor please send us your logo!
Taking a Break?
If you are taking a break this month please let me know by the 25th for your payments to be paused. To know if your payments have been paused go into the GoMotion App and your athlete should be listed as "suspended".
If you have any questions or concerns please let me know,
