All Senior/Varsity, Senior 2, Junior, Age Group, Developmental, and Hamilton YMCA (AG & Developmental) group parents should plan on attending this meeting. (This includes all Baylor Middle School and Varsity parents who also have swimmers on the swim club). This meeting will be a bit different from the meeting in years past. With the implementation of the MAAP policy, there are a couple of new forms that must be signed in order for your child(ren) to practice as of September 3. There is also a short parent education course that we need to cover. We are aware there are other school open houses, etc but it would be awesome if you could divide and concur the two meetings.
