WHAT’S ON TAP WITH TOPS?
Congratulations to our swimmers at their respective Pennridge meet! Thank you, parents, for stepping forward to help in your respective volunteer positions. You are TOPS!!

*Also, it was wonderful seeing our swimmers stay together, as a swim family, for the whole meet, as well as, leave each facility clean. Many thanks!!

*We did have a few items, left at Hill School. They have been put in the Lost and Found bag, at The Hill School. That bag is overflowing, so please check to see if any are your swimmers items are in the bag.

DUAL MEET #4 VS. NORTH PENN
*We have two REGULAR SEASON dual meets left. Our next two meets will be challenging and will provide excellent competition for our swimmers.

As usual, we need to know by Tuesday evening (Nov. 27th) if your swimmer in unable to attend the North Penn Dual meet, notify the coaches, via the Orange *CONTACT TOPS button OR use the topsswimming@gmail.com address.

*We appreciate those who have notified us, by Tuesday evening, but we are still getting multiple late notices, about swimmers being unable to attend. We do understand if illness is a cause of absence, hence the late notice.

*An email will be forthcoming with all the needed information about the North Penn Dual meet.

COMMUNICATION
We are making headway on using the Orange CONTACT TOPS button, on the website!! Thank you!! This is our SOLE means of communication. Reminder: Please do not contact a specific coach or use Facebook as a means to communicate. FYI.. The Team Unify site is no longer operational.

*If you are having trouble with the Orange button, then enter topsswimming@gmail.com into the address line.

*We try to, the best of our ability, to be respectful of your time, and the creation of the emails is out of consideration of it. We try to ensure that you have the information you need to be informed, and to use it as a reference for the week.
