Isle of Hope Sharks

Hi Sharks,
Just wanted to pass along information I received on IOH Swim Team Registration.

It’s that time of year again, and IOH Swim Team is on the horizon!

In case you haven’t heard, we are thrilled to have Coach Patricia Bacon back this year, and Coach Allyn Case will be returning this year as well!

For those of you whose first swim season was last year, Allyn was our previous coach (along with coach Dru) during the 2012 and 2013 swim seasons. So we are very excited to have two great coaches on board this year.

Registration will begin April 15th, and our start date will be mid-May.  (I will send out our official start date as soon as I know for sure.)

Rates and practice times have not changed:  $115 for members + $55 splash fee for nonmembers.
