Information about fall/winter season
It's that time of year again! You should have received an email about the 2019/2020 fall/winter season of the Flying Fish, which begins October 7, with a pre-season beginning on September 9. The email includes details about group placement, schedules, and registration dates. You'll find a copy of that email here.

Registration for the week of August 19 is Tuesday-Friday, 1-6 pm, and for the week of August 26, registration will be held Monday through Thursday, 9:30-11:30 am and 5:30-7:30 pm.
Learn about exciting renovations at the YWCA
All Flying Fish parents, guardians and interested adult family members are invited to attend meetings about upcoming plans to renovate and expand the YWCA. You can choose between two meetings:
  • Tuesday, August 20, from 1-2 pm or
  • Wednesday, August 21, from 6:30-7:30 pm.

Both meetings will be held in room 207 on the second floor of the YWCA. No need to RSVP, just show up. Please note that these meetings are for adults only. We will have separate meetings for our swimmers.
Suit fitting with All-American Aquatics on September 14
Stop by the YWCA on Saturday, September 14, from 11 am to 4 pm to order your team suit and purchase additional swim equipment, like goggles, from our vendor, All-American Aquatics.

We strongly encourage everyone to attend the fitting and try on suits because brands are sized differently and can't be returned once they're customized with our logo. Remember: We ask all swimmers to purchase a new team suit each year. Suits stretch with minimal wear and we want our swimmers to be well equipped for both practice and meets.

Greenfish are not required to purchase a team suit, but if your Greenfish would like a team suit and any other equipment, we warmly welcome you to stop by on September 14.
