Weekly Info: 6/10/2018-6/17/2018

Hi Torpedo Parents,

Thank you to the volunteers that helped out on Saturday. It takes many hands to make the meets run smoothly. We appreciate everyone who volunteered!


The team is in dire need of having more parent volunteers obtain MCSL Officials certification. If you have never officiated at all, please consider getting certified as a Stroke and Turn Judge. If you have been certified as a Stroke and Turn in the past, your certification may be expired and needs to be renewed through a certification class on Tuesday.

MCSL Officials Certification Schedule

After becoming certified, we will have you "shadow" one of our more seasoned officials to help you along. This is to gain experience and so you can ask any questions you may need to.  Remember, this is for the kids and a fun summer! Officiating is actually pretty fun and a great way to be involved with the meet! Best seat in the house! Thanks in advance!


Have you paid your team fee yet? It's $40 per family. Checks can be made out to "Germantown Torpedoes." Our team raises funds to buy (among other items): Pace clocks, Canopies, Tables, Stop watches, Computer, Ribbons, Awards, Banners, Office Supplies, Printer, End of Year Gifts for swimmers, coaches and parent volunteers. Find a team rep at practice to pay.


Make sure that you've listed your availability for every activity we do! It is essential for the coaches making the lineups for those events. 

  • Log into your Torpedo account (there is an app for your phone)
  • Go to the Meets & Results tab
  • Go to the Signup Calendar
  • Click on each Saturday Swim Meet and each of the two Relay Carnivals and indicate whether you are available by clicking on "Meet Entry" then “Edit”
  • Note: Wed meets will open for sign-ups after the first Saturday meet


Coach Mark will be sending out the lineup for Saturday's A meet no later than Thursday night. It is important that you check this lineup as soon as possible to confirm if you're swimming on Saturday! If for whatever reason, you cannot make Saturday's meet, contact Coach Mark ASAP!
