EPAC Summer 2015 Season Announcement

Our EPAC Summer 2015 season will run May 4 through August 4, 2015!!

We are switching from our current registration/payment system (Thriva) to Team Unify!

Watch your email for an invitation to set up your account password (to be sent out the first week of April before registration).

We will still use our www.epac.org for most information, but you will click on links on the EPAC website that will take you to Team Unify for registration, payments, meet sign-ups, and volunteer sign-ups.

You can also download “On Deck Parent” on your smartphone. On Deck Parent Features: Parents will gain easy access to up-to-date information on their children, every swim meet swum, best times and upcoming swim meets and much, much more.

We have been approved to use the East Pennsboro Middle School pool for May 4-June 5th. This will be for our East Pennsboro residents and for level 1 and level 2 non-residents.

If the East Pennsboro Middle School pool stays open past June 5th, we will continue to utilize the pool if there is approval by the EPASD school board.

We will also be utilizing the Central Penn Fitness and Aquatic Club pool for our Level 3, 4, 5 and 6 swimmers (EP residents and non-residents).   http://www.centralpennfitnesscenter.com/

FUNDRAISING FOR YOUR FAMILY’S ACCOUNT

Due to the increase in fees, we are allowing families to fundraise this summer and the 100% of the profits will be credited to your swimmers account!

Fundraising credits can be used for base rates, equipment, meet fees (anything that is applied to your account).

As of April 1st, the 5% profit from your Giant Gift Card purchases through EPAC will be credited monthly to your account.

Each month on the 15th, Colleen will total the swimmer/family profit from Giant Gift Cards. This profit will be credited to your account before the end of the month. When you receive your bill on the 1st of the month, you will see the credit.

Other Fundraising Opportunities this summer:

  1. Sub Sale (Date will be announced soon), possible profits from $1.75-$6.00 per item
  2. Hershey Park Volunteer: 3 hour shift makes $18, 4 hour shift makes $24, 5 hour shift makes $30 plus any shift receives a park voucher
  3. Basket Bingo: Profit for tickets is between $18-22 per ticket depending on how many tickets are sold (bingo prizes range from baskets, electronics, American girl doll products, coach purses, etc.)

***If your account is paid and you have earned additional fundraising profits, it will be credited to your account. The credit will remain on your account for 12 months. It can be used within 12 months for future registration, meet fees, and other account balances. However if you leave EPAC and do not return and register within 12 months, your fundraising credits will be removed from your account. Those fundraising profits will be returned to the EPAC club.

More information about Fundraising will be coming out soon!

Volunteers:

It takes about 200 volunteers to run summer meets. Families will be asked to sign up through Team Unify for meets. Each family is expected to sign up at for at least 3 slots over the course of the summer season.

If you would like a permanent position (such as timer, official, team parent, etc), please let Sandii know at volunteers@epac.org

Volunteers for Divisionals/All-Stars/Mid-Caps will also be needed. If we think your swimmer will make it to championship meet and you have not volunteered for other meets, you will be “volunteered”.
