Kingfish News: That's a Wrap! End of Season Info & Banquet Video
The Kingfish capped off an undefeated season as Division F Champions at the Divisionals meet! We are so proud of our swimmers, our coaches, and all the families who dedicated their time and effort to a whirlwind, incredible season. The development of each and every swimmer this summer was a joy to watch, from learning new strokes and first dives to All Star swim times and personal bests.
We will be swimming in Division D in the 2024 season, which means Time Trials will be on June 8th, and Divisionals & Banquet will fall on July 20th. All star weekend will be 7/27-7/28.
All Stars Practices & T-Shirts
Practices are held this week from 5-6pm only for those swimming in All Stars this weekend. All Stars T Shirt orders due to Dani by tomorrow, July 26 at 11am.
Don’t Forget Your Trophies & Ribbons!
For those who did not attend the banquet and did not receive their participation trophy, please pick up your trophy from the box by the Kingfish family folders on the lower level of the Clubhouse.
This would also be a good time to clean out those family folders, taking one last look to make sure you did not leave behind any ribbons.
Mia Joelsson will reach out to those who were not at the Banquet for the special awards.

Open Board Positions & Elections
Board positions are open for election every 2 years. This year, we will hold elections in September for B Rep and A Automation. We have interested candidates, but anyone who meets the criteria for the positions is also welcome to apply. Please reach out to any Board member to learn more.
Nominating Committee Volunteers
We need one or two volunteers to help with the Board elections in September. This role is limited in scope and easy if you want to do some volunteering for the team in the off-season. Please contact Yolanda Goettsch at [email protected] if you are interested.
Winter Swimming Options
We are lucky to have plenty of local options for winter swim, including lessons, non-competitive stroke development clinics and competitive teams. Please see the list below.
