Sunday, August 20: Team Welcome Dinner.  Noon to 2:00pm at Northville Swim Club. At the beginning of each season it is a team tradition that the girls have a welcome event led by the "senior class" to get to know each other; place some ice-breaker games; receive their team uniform; receive their team warm-ups; be paired up with a season long "swim sister"; etc. This year we were lucky enough to have a parent offer to host the welcome event at their swim club. Sheila Ebel has coordinated the use of The Northville Swim Club which has a covered pavilion, sand volleyball court, swimming pool and diving pool. Once the senior class decides on the lunch menu we will send out a Sign Up Genius with more info.

"If you fail to prepare, you're prepared to fail." Mark Spitz


  "Persistence can change failure into extraordinary achievement." Matt Biondi  


"Being your best is not so much about overcoming the barriers other people place in front of you as it is about overcoming the barriers we place in front of ourselves. It has nothing to do with how many times you win or lose. It has no relation to where you finish in a race or whether you break world records. But it does have everything to do with having the vision to dream, the courage to recover from adversity and the determination never to be shifted from your goals." Kieren Perkins


"When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength." 2015 Seniors
