This fundraising efforts is a means to be ready to meet a need for more pools in our area.
As shared at the parent meeting, USA Swimming, Middle Atlantic, ASCA, ISCA, and other swimming bodies acknowledge the need for more pools; and we feel it, most acutely, in southeastern PA.
As Brian Stoudt shared in a previous email, we are VERY THANKFUL to all those who contributed to this fundraising effort. You are supporting not only TOPS, but the future of this sport, in this area.
Thank you! Thank you! You are TOPS!
It was a beautiful day. It was a lot of fun. There were great prizes, and it was wonderful spending time with our swim family, off the deck.
We have added a* COLLEGE* tab, and we will be posting relevant information, for our HS swimmers, who are contemplating swimming in college. We hope to have articles, and links posted, this week. We will also alert you of additions via our Weekly Announcements.

TOPS USA SWIMMERS WHO ARE 17 AND OLDER- If you will be swimming in the upcoming Blue Eagle meet, you must take the online Athlete Protection Online Class. Not only will Blue Eagle be checking you USA membership, but they will be checking that you took this online class. This is especially pressing for our existing 18 yr. old. It will be very unfortunate if you came to the meet and were not permitted to swim because this requirement is not fulfilled. Sadly, there is nothing your coaches can do for you if you do not take the necessary steps to complete this task.
FYI…You must allow at least 24 hrs. for the results of your online class to appear on your Deck Pass.
