Former RSD coach, Clayton Joyner, is remembered in a news article on Reach for the Wall.    A memorial service will be held on May 17 at 11:30am at Saint Philip the Apostle Catholic Church in Falls Church, followed by a ‘Celebration of Life’ at Holmes Run Acres pool.  In lieu of flowers, the Joyner family requests contributions be made to the Falls Church High School Swim and Dive Team, 7521 Jaguar Trail, Falls Church VA 22042. Checks should be made payable to Falls Church High School with the memo “in memory of Coach CJ.”

TIME STANDARDS UPDATE: The Region 6A time standards have been updated due to some coach concerns about their calculation using the new formula.  Updated times have been posted on the Time Standards page from the Region 6A North Meet Info (updated) document. In general, regional cut times are now slightly slower than previously posted.  Consequently, a small number of swimmers have made regional cuts that were not previously indicated.  Visit Link to our Regional/State RSD qualifiers for the updated list.

eniors should send post graduation plans to Mary Smith for posting on the RSD Alumni page.

ROBINSON ATHLETIC BOOSTERS - OASIS HELP NEEDED!
The Robinson Athletic Boosters requires all sports, including Swim & Dive parents, to provide volunteers to work at the snack bar (indoor/winter sports; outdoor/spring sports).  RSD needs to provide volunteers for their assigned events.  If we do not get enough volunteers, we will have to assign families to fill the required spots!  NOTES: When you work at the Oasis, your game admission is free.  Your name will be on the list at the ticket table. Volunteers must wear closed-toe shoes.  No children under 18 or Robinson students may work at the Oasis.  Working at the Oasis is fun!  Sign up for events at  RSD Oasis Help sign-up page.  Questions? email Lorenda Wieder
