Here come the Gators!
Dear Gator families,
I'm excited to say that our summer swim season is around the corner. Hopefully you saw the email from Kelley that registration is open via swimtopia (https://eichler.swimt
My name is Melinda Mattes, and this is my first year serving as swim team co-chair with Owen Bittinger. This will be my family's second season on the team, and I have two Gator sons: Huxley is 9, and Hobbs is 6. I look forward to meeting you and attaching names to faces.
Here are a few dates to put on your calendar:
Sunday, April 14th: Kick-off brunch Kick off the season with food and friends. You will be able to order suits and exchange gear your kids have grown out of. We will meet with new families at 11 AM to give them a little more detailed orientation, and we will have a brief welcome at 11:30 for the entire team before serving food. I hope to meet you there!
