If you have been on Laurel Brooke Lightning before you will notice a few changes. Cherokee County swimming has merged with a new league, now ASA. Overall you won’t notice a difference but this does change our end of season schedule due to their Divisional and Championship Meets. Our meets will typically always be on Thursday except this year our 1st meet will be on Monday, June 3rd due to Sequoyah graduation on Thursday, May 30th. Our last meet will be on Tuesday, June 25th due to divisional meets taking place that week. Any swimmer has the option to swim in the Divisional meet at Georgia Tech on Wednesday-Friday that week. We will know our exact date and time for this meet in May.
Dive Certification - For those that have been dive certified you will not need to be certified again. If you are new to the team and at least 7 years old and your child wants to dive at meets they will need to be certified. Dates available for certification are April 27th and May 18th at the Cherokee Aquatic Center.
Sponsors. We are looking for sponsors again this season. We will have the form on our website if you know of anyone who would like to help our team out. We have 3 tiers of sponsorship.
Fees. For Laurel Brooke residents only, $120 1st child, $90 2nd child, $65 3 or more children; for non-residents $145 1st child, $115 2nd child, $90 3 or more children. Due to shirt orders please be registered by May 1st. We can add swimmers afterwards but cannot guarantee a shirt will be provided.
Children do not need to be excellent swimmers to participate (no tryouts) but do need to know how to swim. Due to the number of swimmers, coaches are unable to have one on one time during practices.
