Fall Registration and Minutes from May 1 Parent Meeting

Hello Forsyth Water Polo Families,

Thank you to all who were able to come to our first Annual General Membership Parent Meeting on May 1. Please review the meeting minutes here. During this important meeting, parents voted on all five 2018-2019 board positions, as well as the budget and team fees for the upcoming season. You’ll find all this information in the meeting minutes.

Registration and Fees for Fall 2018:  During the meeting, the coaches and parents discussed the upcoming Fall season, which begins on June 25. This Fall we will have four teams – Co-ed A, B, C teams and a Girls A team.

On notable change is that the top 12 girls, as selected by the coaches, will be assigned to the Girls A team. All other girls will be assigned to the appropriate co-ed team based on ability. Girls A team members may opt to also play on a co-ed team if desired, but will pay an additional $100 fee in order to play on two teams. Coaches will assign Girls A team members to the appropriate co-ed team, again based on ability.

We encourage all returning players to reserve your spot on the team by registering now. Complete these three forms — the Registration Form , Medical Waiver  and Concussion Awareness  forms — and return by mail along with a $50 deposit. The balance will be due on or before the first practice on June 25.

Fall fees are tentatively set at $320 per player/$295 for each additional child from the same family (plus $100 for Girls A Team members who also wish to play on a co-ed team). Depending on the final number of players, fees may be adjusted slightly. Final fees will be announced mid-June, in time for you to pay your balance by the first day of practice.

Fall practice times have not yet been finalized yet, as we await availability of lanes at the Cumming Aquatic Center. We will announce the practice schedule as soon as possible.
