2019 MWD Swim and Dive Team Season!


Dear Maplewood Families,

Welcome to the 2019 swim and dive team season! The team is open to Maplewood Club members only. Swimmers and divers compete according to their age in the Colonial Swim League. There are 6 meets during the 2019 season that begin the end of June through July on Tuesday/Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings. The season ends with championship meets.

We are excited to welcome back some familiar faces to our coaching staff! Jamie Forlini returns as head coach, bringing over 20 years of coaching experience to the team. He is a member of the club and plays an active role in the swim community.

This year’s assistant coaches include Sean Harney and Emma Rosenthal. Colleen Rodriguez is returning as our diving coach.

The team practices on weekdays. After-school practice will begin Monday, June 3 from 4:30 -5:15 pm for 10 & under swimmers and 5:15-6:30 pm for 11 & over swimmers. Morning practice begins Monday, June 17. There will be several events throughout the season to build camaraderie and team spirit, including breakfast/lunch bunches, fundraisers, and the end-of-season party.

Registration will be held at the pool on Saturday May 25 and June 1 from 2-4 pm. Paperwork will be available, but feel free to print the forms, click 
here,and complete in advance. Please DO NOT print double sided forms. If you are registering your swimmer for junior team or swim lessons, please use lessons/junior team registration form. Suits will also be available to try on at registration. Please note: you cannot be rostered for the team, practice, and compete in Colonial Swim League meets until you have submitted a completed registration and team dues.

Our 2019 team suit will be available for purchase at registration and through mid-June.  The female suit is $48, male jammer is $33; male brief is $26. Checks may be payable to Maplewood Swim Club. This year, due to the club new online system, please pay swim team balances separately from your club dues. After mid-June, you will need to purchase a suit directly at Personal Best in Bensalem.

We run several fundraisers throughout the season to support our team.  Money raised goes towards various team costs, such as team equipment, team gifts, and lunch bunch activities.  We ask that you participate in all fundraisers as we are a small team and we do our best to make it a fun experience for your children.  This year’s fundraisers include: Family Day Raffle Baskets on Sunday, July 7; Swim-a-pool-ooza on Wednesday, June 26; and the Applebee’s breakfast on Saturday, July 20.  Also remember to shop online at Swimoutlet.com via our affiliate site at
www.swimoutlet.com/maplewood. This is a year round opportunity to help raise money for our team!

We look forward to seeing you all at registration! Thank you in advance for all your support!


Sincerely,
