First Home Meet This Thursday!

As we get ready to cheer on our VFC Dolphins, the Board wanted to remind you that the pool will be closed to members this Thursday (6/9) after 4pm for the first home meet of the season. 

The second home meet will be Thursday, 6/15 and the pool will close to members at 3pm (as it is Picture Day for the team). 

Swim practices are held daily before the pool opens, with a make-up practice from 5-6p Monday through Thursday (while the pool remains opens to members).

Thank you for your cooperation!

VFC Dolphins Swim Team Sign-Up Is This Thursday!

Things you need to know:

** Pre-register via our TeamUnify site between now and April 14th. CLICK HERE to get started.

** Registration will take place on Thursday, April 14th from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30. p.m. at the La Grange Park Village Hall, in the basement Community Room. As in years past, volunteer assignments for the 2016 season will be open on a first-come, first-served basis.

** Consider writing your checks in advance. This will make the line move more quickly. You will need one check for $125 made out to “Village Field Club” for your volunteer deposit. You will need a separate check (also made out to “Village Field Club”) for your registration fees. The total registration fees due will be listed on your TeamUnify confirmation. You will need a separate check or cash for your team T-shirts ($10 each). Urban Tri Gear does accept credit cards.

** Parents who have ONLY high swimmers (swimmers who have completed at least one year of high school) are NOT required to volunteer this season unless they also have swimmers in other age groups. Because $0 is due and no volunteer sign-up is required, you do not need to attend registration and can instead register your swimmer online. However, if you want a team T-shirt, team suit, or to pick up your swimmer’s giveaway, you should stop by registration (skip the payment and volunteer sign-up line).

Registration fees have not changed. It’s $65 for swimmers 6 and under (age as of June 1, 2016), $0 for swimmers who have completed one year of high school, and $100 for all other swimmers. The volunteer deposit for this year is $125.

Please contact us if you have any questions about the registration process. And feel free to share this e-mail with anyone you know who might be interested in Dolphins this year.

We look forward to seeing lots of faces Thursday night!
