Swimmer Affirmative RSVP--- those definitely interested please let me know as soon as possible!
1): YES -- my swimmer is interested in attending the Orlando Meet and traveling with the team.
2): YES, BUT -- my swimmer is interested in attending, but will need to travel separately or attend on a limited schedule due to school restrictions and/or other commitments. Such alternate arrangements will need to be handled by parents of that swimmer.
3): If you CANNOT or do not wish to attend, there is no need to respond.
The focus of this voluntary program is to identify and reward up to 200 USA Swimming clubs
