Hello Red Dragon Families!
Practice this Week
We have practice Monday-Friday this week! Friendly reminder Friday practice is at 6PM. Gold and Silver have goal setting on Tuesday and Thursday at 6:15PM at the pool. They only need to attend one of the days.
With cold weather comes some sickness! We have a small coaching staff and if one coach gets sick, practice groups are left without a coach! If your athlete is not feeling well PLEASE do NOT bring them to practice. We want families, athletes, and coaching staff to stay healthy throughout our season!
Fantastic job Red Dragons at the NLSA meet! We placed 2nd at the meet! This was the last meet being held at the old Moorhead High School! Results will be uploaded today, please look them over. Ribbons will be at the pool this week!

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.
