Welcome to the 2018 MWD Swim and Dive Team Season!

The Maplewood Swim and Dive Team is open to Maplewood Club members only. Swimmers and divers compete according to their age in the Colonial Swim League. There are currently 6 meets during the 2018 season that begin the end of June through July on Tuesday/Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings. The season ends with championship meets.

The Swim Team is led by head coach Jamie Forlini who brings over 20 years of coaching experience to the team. Jamie is a member of the club and has an active role in the swim community. Aside from coaching at MWD, he is also the boys coach at William Tennent High School and runs the Centennial Aquatic Club.

We are currently looking for a diving coach but anticipate we will find the appropriate person by June 1.

The team practices on weekdays. Practice begins in early June with after school practice (See
calendar for times). Morning practice begins when the Centennial School District ends the school year. Our morning swim practice schedule and grouping has changed!  See the calendar for times. Parents will be notified of exact groups by June 14th.  Aside from practices and meets, there are many different fun activities the team participates in, such as lunch bunches, dinner night, end of the season party, and fundraisers.

Registration will be held at Maplewood on Saturday May 26 2:00pm – 4:00pm and Saturday, June 2rd 2:00-4:00pm.  Please download the forms by clicking
2018 Team Registration, complete, and bring to registration.  If you are registering your swimmer for Junior Team or swim lessons, please use Lessons/Junior Team Registration form.  Registrations after this date will be accepted.  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 2018 team suit will be available for purchase at registration and through mid-June. The female suit is $43, male jammer is $29; male brief is $26. Checks may be payable to Maplewood Swim Club and may be included with your registration. After mid-June, you will need to purchase a suit directly at Personal Best in Bensalem.

We will be running fundraisers to support our team.  Money raised goes toward various team costs, such as swim team equipment, team gift, and lunch/dinner 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.  We will be focusing on our major fundraisers that have been successful and fun for everyone and adding a few new ones. Important dates include: June 30th Applebees’s breakfast,  Sunday, July 8th Family Day Raffle Baskets, Monday, July 9th Swim-a-pool-ooza (more info to follow).  Also, shopping online at Swimoutlet.com via our affiliate site at www.swimoutlet.com/maplewood is a year round opportunity to help raise money for our team just by shopping at this site.

The tentative calendar is posted.  Please click on Calendar for a summary of events.

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


Sincerely,

Karen Dean
