Our end-of-year banquet is this Wednesday, JULY 26! Come join us as we celebrate the close of another fabulous season! The North Creek community remains strong - we welcomed many new families into the fold, celebrated many first meet swims and personal best times, made new friends and had fun! Congratulations to everyone involved in continuing this summer swim team tradition! This is a fun night where we get together as a team to cheer on our preteamers, share a good meal, reward our swimmers for their hard work, and listen to the coaches share the season highlights as well as view the slideshow!

PRETEAM POPSICLE MEET:  This is where our preteamers get to show off the skills they've learned over the season! Parents, please see the coaches when you arrive so they can enter your swimmers into the events that are best for them. All swimmers will receive ribbons. All pre-team families are invited to stay for the awards ceremony and banquet to follow!
We need our older swimmers to serve as our officials for this meet! Referees, starters, clerk-of-course, timers, etc.!

2. Parent Party! (Coaches too!) - Friday at the Kuhn's house!
If you've been a Neptune for a while, then you know this is the time of year for our parents and coaches to come together and celebrate OUR hard work - getting our kids to the pool for practice, helping at meets, and everything in between! This year July was super busy, so instead of our usual crab feast, we will be keeping it simple and having a Parents and Coaches Party!

WhenFriday, July 28 at 7:00 pm
Where9521 Aspenwood Court

What to bring: Adults and coaches only! Bring a heavy appetizer or dessert to share, a chair to sit in and a beverage of your choice. The team will provide paper products and ice.  A dollar donation to offset the cost of the paper products would be appreciated!

What we'll do:  Hang out around a fire pit (does anybody have one? and wood?), in our camp chairs and pat ourselves on the back for another successful season and admire our selfless hard work for our somewhat appreciative children.
