Banquet of Desserts

North Creek will be having the end of season banquet on Tuesday, March 3rd, at 6:00pm. We will be hosting the event in the 2nd floor Library at NCHS. Families are encouraged to attend!

This year we will be keeping the food quite simple and targeting a Banquet of Desserts. On a volunteer basis, please bring a drink or dessert. To help communicate so that folks don’t bring too much of one thing, I have a Sign-Up Genius: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60B084CA8A828ABF85-swim

Also, please be prepared to bring stuff home with you.

Sign-Up

Meet Officials : Help us officiate our meets.

Meet Snacks and Timers: Give the boys some needed sustenance, and help us run the meet.

Meet Snacks

Swimmers need food, not only to swim well, but to avoid getting HANGRY! Please go to this sign-up Genius link (TBD) to volunteer to bring snacks to the meets. You can either deliver the snacks to the meet directly, or have your swimmer bring it, or deliver it to the bus at NCHS before we leave for the meet. The swimmers thank you!

Officials

Our high school meets are complete volunteer based. We need officials and timers at every meet. If you are a certified official, please reach out to Coach Jeff so that he can help coordinate dates for you to officiate. The joy you'll get from helping out will feed your soul for months! :-)

Parkas

If you want a Parka, you can borrow one for the season. You'll sign for the parka and must return it in good condition at the end of the year. Since you missed the day these were handed out, you'll have to ask Coach Jeff to bring one to you at practice.
