All are welcome! New team members and their parents are particularly encouraged to attend. Dinner will be provided.

First Social of the Season:
This Friday evening, join us for our first social event of the season! The Yune’s have offered to host the team at the Avalon located at 14240 Alta Oaks Dr., Rockville, MD 20850. The Yune’s will provide the main course, and they are asking athletes to bring the following contributions:
Freshmen class – drinks
Sophomore class – desserts
Junior class – bread, rolls, or salad
Senior class – side dishes

Coach Emr will have the meet lineup for the scrimmage and the divers will be meeting to discuss dives. Hope to see you all there!

Scrimmage against RM & Rockville Information:
Join us on Saturday morning as we take on RM and Rockville at GISC! The Patriots are filled with turkey and ready to rock our first scrimmage meet of the season. Please be at the pool by 8:50 am. We will only have about 10 minutes to warm up, so please be on time! The meet will start promptly at 9:15 am with our diving events. Each meet lasts a maximum of 2 hours, so our meet will conclude by 11:15 am. Please stay for the entire meet! We will be going to lunch as a team at Cava in Kentlands afterwards!

In order for each meet to run smoothly, we need parent volunteers! Please visit our SignUpGenius page at the following link:

Show your team spirit in school on Friday by dressing up! Our theme this week is PAJAMAS! Bring your blankets and pillows and fall asleep in class after our early morning practice (just kidding).

Team Uniform:
Make sure you wear your team uniform to our meet on Saturday! Returning athletes: our suit is the same as last year. New athletes: stop by Cassel’s Swim and Awards located at 831 Rockville Pike (where Aardvark used to be). Ask an associate for Wootton’s team suit, and they will point you in the right direction.

Mandatory Player Pack:
Every athlete is required to purchase a player pack. For $25, your athlete will receive a custom team shirt and two swim caps. Divers & Managers: since you do not require swim caps, your player pack will be for the prorated amount of $20. For an additional $10, you may also purchase an optional Swim & Dive magnet.

All checks need to be submitted to Coach Emr by Saturday, December 2. Please make checks payable to Wootton Booster Club. Thank you to those of you who have already paid!
