Hello Red Dragon Families!
CHAMPIONSHIP SEASON IS HERE!!!! Please note with us starting championship season, email responses may be slower than usual as Coach Jess will be attending all the meets and will be on deck coaching. If you need immediate assistance please send a text to Coach Jess.
Practice this Week
We have practice Monday, Tuesday and Thursday this week! Wednesday there is a basketball game at MSUM and we can not have practice. Friday practice is cancelled due to the MRC meet.
Friendly reminder to please keep your athletes home if they are not feeling well or are sick. 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! ESPECIALLY as we are now in championship season

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 any 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. Please do not wait to the last minute to send this.
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,
