CMA team parkas


CMA is looking into a group purchase of parkas for the team.  The following details about the sizes and costs were provided by Dale's swim shop:
  • Available sizes from XS to XXXL. XXL and XXXL are $5 more.
  • Prices are $93 for 6, $91 for 12 to 23, and $89 for 24 and more.
  • Shipping is included. Sales tax of 8.75% is added to the sale.
The style of the parka can be viewed online at:

The parkas will have a navy blue exterior with a navy blue lining.
The team logo will be printed on the back of the parka by Boca Rio, but that cost is not included in the prices listed above.  As a result, the total cost will be a little higher.
Contact Jane if you have any questions about the parkas, and you can contact Coach Rhonda or Jane if you might be interested in purchasing one.

CMA practice update for Wednesday (19 Jul) and Friday (21 Jul)

Our coach has a conflict that will require her to leave at 6:20AM on Wednesday (19 Jul).  As a result, we must be out of the pool by 6:20AM.  The abbreviated practice times will most severely impact the 6AM group.  The BBMAC is hosting a swim meet (Age Group Championships) on Friday (21 Jul), so we are unable to hold practice on Friday.
