This meet is similar to the A relay meet. All the B league teams participate and it's a TON of fun.

Please arrive at Lake Marion by 4:45 to be ready to be in the pool to warm up at 5:00.

Saturday is our fifth regular A meet of the season at Poolesville (20151 Fisher Ave, Poolesville, MD 20837). Below is the list of swimmers needed. PLEASE check this list for your child's name and respond with Yes or No to confirm availability for Saturday. Missing swimmers means empty lanes, and empty lanes mean lost points for the team!

A Meet Saturday @ Poolesville

Meet Location: The team will meet at North Creek at 7:20am on Saturday to form a car caravan to travel together to Poolesville.

Upon arrival, we will all enter the pool deck together as a team! (If you will be traveling separately on your own, please let us know!).

Meet Theme: This week's theme is TRIBAL! All Neptunes, including swimmers, siblings, and parents, are welcome to dress up and show your Neptune spirit!

Swimmers: Please check the list below carefully for your swimmer's name, and if your swimmer is listed and is NOT available Saturday, please let Coach Patrick know ASAP (Reply to this email with Yes or NO) so that we can fill any empty lanes. Empty lanes mean lost points for the team!

Warm-Ups: If you are not traveling with the caravan, please arrive at Poolesville by 8:10 a.m. so we can determine if we need to make any scratches based on no-shows. (Let us know if you will arrive separately!)

VOLUNTEERS needed: Please click on the link below to see where you can help—it takes a Village! Thank you in advance for helping make this a successful meet! New parents, if you have any questions about what these positions entail or aren’t sure what would be a good fit for you, please email or talk to Jen Hammond, Team Rep, at practice.


Long Course

On Sunday July 15th the North Creek Neptune's Swim Team will host our 34th ANNUAL NORTH CREEK INVITATIONAL LONG COURSE MEET. For this meet we invite our local area teams, our Montgomery County Swim League (MCSL) Division Teams, and several other teams from Frederick and the local MC area. As always, we will once again have our super charity raffle to benefit Gaithersburg Help (last year we had over $500 in cool prizes, including Skyzone and Monster Golf tickets, movie deals, and restaurant cards !). There will also be a small team trophy awarded to the team with the highest points scored.

The Long Course is open to all North Creek swimmers - swimmer sign up is here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b0548abad2aa5fa7-july3

This is both a competitive and fun meet in which the length of each event is twice the normal length (lanes set up across pool for 50 meters, instead of 25 meters). This meet is both a fun meet and a fundraiser for both Gaithersburg Help and the Neptunes (mostly via concessions). There are two important ways you can help make the meet successful: sending in donations for our charity raffle and helping during the meet.

Donations for our charity raffle: Each year we have a raffle to benefit a local charity. Like the past few years, all proceeds of the raffle will go to Gaithersburg Help, which is a network of more than 200 volunteers that provides emergency assistance to over 3000 Gaithersburg area families each year (see the following link for more info: http://gaithersburghelp.org/about-help). At the meet we sell raffle tickets for the chance to win items donated by local businesses. Could you donate a prize that we can use for the raffle? If so, or if you are able to help solicit donations from businesses, please contact Dave@Lechnersonline.com.

Help during the LC meet: We will also need timers and officials as usual, and concessions stand help, and hospitality, and a clerk .... We will have 8 lanes, instead of 6 so we need more help than usual. If you are qualified to be a stroke and turn official or referee, we really need your help.
