Annual Holiday Social – Save the Date
Our annual Holiday Social will be held on Sunday, December

this festive fun family event – plan on attending!
Post Turkey Hangover
We will be having practice this
year on the weekend after Thanksgiving. Yes, we will have a 5:30 am practice on Friday, November 29 and another
practice on Saturday, November 30 at 7 am. Thank you Erin and Amber-Sky for making this happen for the swimmers.
To belong to our program a swimmer
has four responsibilities: be a USMS member, pay the annual Administrative fee, pay the Coaching fee, and give
back to the sport.
The fee is $20, with checks being made out to "Samland." UNOmaha and UNMC students, College of
St. Mary students, and Creighton students will have the Administrative fee waived.
Fees for the program has two options; quarterly or monthly. The quarterly fee is $100. Or the other option is a monthly fee
of $40. The monthly fee is determined on the monthly calendar, not as a 30 day cycle. UNOmaha students and College of St.
Mary students will have a reduced rate of $15 per month and are requested to pay for 3 months at a time. Each individual determines
the number of days they want swim per month. Coaching fees will not be pro-rated, if you swim 1 day or 20 days the financial
responsibility remains the same.
Finally, you are encouraged
to "give back" to the sport of swimming!! This is not mandatory nor will it be managed. Giving can come in many
forms. You can become a booster club member. You can volunteer at a swim meet; Masters, College, High School, Age Group, YMCA,
or Summer League. You can be a web master for a swim program. You can be a volunteer coach for our program. Or it can be as
simple as "putting in" lane ropes or "taking out" lane ropes for our own swim practice. "Giving back"
is fun facet to the philosophy of this program!
