Meet Volunteers - Sign Up Please

If you have not yet turned on any Jelly Beans or Jolly Ranchers, please do so now, we've ran out of Jolly Ranchers, and our supply of Jelly Beans is low. The kids really do like these treats at the end of practice.
Video Files 
Each week, I put together a video of the meets, these are random shots taken by parents, I put them to music, they are usually on the front page of the website, there is a big box with a triangle pointing to the right, you simply click that image and the video will start, You can also look down the right hand side of the website to the video link which will take you to a page containing all of them. I am also working on posting the pictures from those videos to our picture page which is hosted on Webshots. Click here our photo albums.
