We have placed an order for custom PURA VIDA bracelets!!  These bracelets are very popular right now.  Founded in Costa Rica, Pura Vida Bracelets provides sustainable jobs to artisans worldwide and raises awareness for charities with products that give back.  Each bracelet will be $6.00 and all profits will go to off set relay costs at meets throughout the season.

Here are the two bracelets:

PV #1- Red, White, Black

PV #2- Red, Black

As of now we have only ordered 50 of each.  If we go above that number we will order more.  They take 8-10 weeks to be delivered so the first order should be in for the holidays.  That being said, they are first come first serve for the first order.  To order, sign up on the Google document:

Payment needs to get to Kaeley by the end of October at the Aquafest.

We are a volunteer organization and we need your help to continue to keep our program great!!!
What do we need?

OFFICIALS- we always need parents to step up and become USA Swimming Officials. It is a great way to learn about the sport and be right on the pool deck. Any LEHY official would be happy to talk to you about the process and I will snd out information about clinics as it becomes available. Time and again, our officials have stepped up to help at meets and keep our timing assignments to a minimum.

PARENTS WILLING TO LEARN TIMING SYSTEM (COLORADO)- Best seat in the house at a swim meet! This is the equipment that runs the timing system at our meets. We need people to train and learn the system. We have experienced people who are ready to teach you. It is not difficult and a MUCH needed position when hosting our meets.

PARENTS WILLING TO LEARN THE COMPUTER SYSTEM- Collects all the data from the meet and is a pretty easy system to use once you know it. People can learn it in one weekend! WE have experienced people who are ready to teach you!

Championship Meet Requirements for 2019 CT Championships:
Regionals Championships- Compete in a minimum of 1 CT Sanctioned Meet
Age Group Championships- Compete in a minimum of 1 CT Sanctioned meet
