IMPORTANT DATES AND INFORMATION
Team Reps and Coaches,
I can't believe summer swim season begins in less than FOUR weeks. Before we dive head-first into the summer, I wanted to remind you of some important dates and relay some vital information.
MEET DIRECTOR'S MEETING
We will hold our Meet Director's Meeting and Training session this Saturday, May 5 at 9:00 am at the UT Student Aquatic Center (meeting room upstairs). Please make plans to attend this important meeting (or send your Meet Director). We want to be sure that all of our teams are on the same page as we begin the summer season.
MANDATORY COACHES MEETING
We will hold our Mandatory Coaches Meeting on Tuesday, May 15 at 6:00 pm at the Arnstein Jewish Community Center. Please be sure to attend this very important meeting, as we have some new information to share.
COACHES CERTIFCATIONS ARE DUE JUNE 1
Coaches Certifications are due June 1. Any coach who has not turned in their information by the June 1 date will be fined $50. Any coach who has not turned in their information by June 5 will not be allowed on deck at City Meet. NO EXCEPTIONS.
We need the following documents to be turned in:
1. Concussion Awareness Training Certificate;
2. Concussion Awareness sheet with signature and initials;
3. Sudden Cardiac Death Training Certificate;
4. Sudden Cardiac Death sheet with signature; and
5. Redwoods or Safe Sport Athlete Protection Certificate.
PLEASE NOTE: The Redwoods site has re-named Athlete Protection. It is now "Child Sexual Abuse Prevention." When you log in, you should be able to find it and link to the training.
Documents may be submitted to GKAISA VP Angelia Nystrom by email at email@example.com . Be sure to include the word GKAISA in your Subject line. Also, be sure to include the team for which you are coaching.
We will update the website weekly with a PDF to show who has turned in information until the deadline has passed.
CERTIFICATES OF INSURANCE ARE DUE JUNE 15
Certificates of Insurance are due June 15 and may be submitted to GKAISA VP Angelia Nystrom by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include the word GKAISA in your Subject line.
We will update the website weekly with a PDF to show who has turned in the information until the deadline has passed.
If you have any questions about meetings or information that should be submitted, please call GKAISA VP Angelia Nystrom at 865.851.0262.
GKAISA T-SHIRT ORDER FORMS
GKAISA t-shirt order forms will be added to the website soon. Be sure to promote t-shirt orders with your team, as t-shirt sales help defray the cost of the City Meet and provide funds for our scholarships for Senior Swimmers.
We are looking forward to a great year!
