If you would like to place an order for IN-STORE pickup, the link below will allow you to do so.  When you to to the "cart" to checkout, you have to first fill in the shipping rate box in order for it to calculate the tax.  Then you select in the box "in-store pickup".  If you have questions, I would suggest contacting Suit-Up directly.  http://www.suitupwatersports.com/category-s/1958.htm


Missing Spirit-Wear
We have had two girls "misplace" their suits after the meets this weekend.  Please check your swim bags and anywhere else that you may keep your RSD suit to make sure you did not accidentally pick up someone elses suit.  If you happen to find an extra suit, please let me know immediately so we can return it to the owner.

The Robinson Athletic Boosters (RAB) support all the athletic teams at Robinson, including swim & dive, by providing coaches’ salaries, buses, and our new starter system. The majority of the booster funds come from the Oasis (and Ram passes.  The Oasis depends on volunteers. The RAB require all sports, including Swim & Dive, to provide volunteers (parents) to work at the Robinson indoor Oasis during the winter sports season.  RSD has been asked to provide volunteers for the ten events listed in the signup genius link: RSD Oasis Volunteer Sign-Up.  This is a great way for freshmen and sophomore parents to get involved. Questions?  Contact Lorenda Wieder, RSD/Athletic Boosters liaison.
