COACHES GIFTS - With the season of giving just around the corner, we'd like to let families contribute to gifts. A portion of the money will be used for Christmas gifts and the rest will later recognize each coach's BIRTHDAY. Please look for large envelopes (one for each coach) in the family files. Donations can be cash or checks written out to Almaden Riptides.
Holiday Break Schedule: This year’s holiday break for the team will take place during the week of December 22nd. *Seniors will practice the Dec. 22/23/24 and then take the rest of the week off. All other groups will be off that entire week. Normal practice will resume on December 29th, with a modified practice schedule. More information on this schedule will be announced soon.
Apparel Update: It is time to order your t-shirts for Zone Championships. The cost is $15 per shirt. Please see the attached order form for more information. The deadline to order is Friday, December 19. The shirts are the same brand (Hanes) as those the team gave the swimmers this year when they registered. Our Zone Championship shirts will be long sleeved and the color is “light steel.” If you have any questions, please contact Amber Macias at firstname.lastname@example.org
