CONGRATULATIONS to our AFD Divers who are OHSAA State Finalists! Your hard work has paid off! It isn't over yet, so please see your practice schedule below.
Please read this email entirely as there is a lot of information including OHSAA State Tournament Info, requests for Lifeguards, info about Monday, 2/17 and a teaser for the March - May session Registration coming soon! In addition upcoming AFD Meet recap and AFD Regular Season Apparel order reminder is at the bottom (DEADLINE TOMORROW).
17 out of 28 total OHSAA State spots were AFD Divers. 8 out of 12 medals were won by AFD Divers! Incredible!
I need all of the AFD State Qualifiers to email firstname.lastname@example.org your shirt size. AFD provides an AFD themed State shirt as a gift for all your hard work and dedication which you will receive in the weeks following the tournament.
AFD does not have Solon High School or WRA on Monday, February 17. Therefore the following are the ONLY practices on Monday:
We strongly encourage AFD Divers of all ages to make an effort to attend some of the State action in Canton next week if you are able. I have included the basic information below:

State Tournament Practice Schedule in Canton:
The last day of the current AFD January/February Session is Sunday, February 23. Good news! We will have WRA back for the March - May session. We expect to open March - May registration on Sunday, February 23 at 5pm. Remember, practices are first come, first serve. If days/times/locations are important to you, you will want to register sooner rather then later. We do our best to keep the diver:coach ratio at a certain number to insure the most successful practice for both divers and coaches. You MUST be registered PRIOR to the first practice or you may not be be allowed to practice! We will be closed the week of February 24 to recover from High School season and regroup, but we are excited to get back to work the week of March 2. Enjoy your time off!
I will be sending information about the March - May Registration session over the next week prior to the Registration opening. All current registration links are housed on the americanflyersdiving.com main page. This is where you can find ODL Registrations and Intent to Participate Registrations for bigger meets as well. The RWBPrep meet code is the same for the entire 2019-2020 season. Invitations are about to go out for the upcoming Promotions to RWBPrep teams. If you have been on the Prep team for the current 2019-2020 season, you should expect to pay the 2nd installment of the bi-annual fee which will be $200.This will take you through 8/31/2020.
We are always in need of lifeguards! The link below is where you can sign up for shifts. This link is also used as your timesheet. This link is updated often, so please check it frequently! Click here for information about current lifeguard shifts for January/February. There will be a new link posted on the main page of americanflyersdiving.com main page once it becomes available for March - May.
