There are a few things that will be changing this upcoming month in regards to fees and payments. Due to the increased cost of goods and operations, it was determined that an increase in fees will be assessed to all programs currently training at the Y. The following groups will have a slight increase in their fees beginning February 1st: pre-team, lessons, and JO 1. Here is the new payment structure:
These pricing will be in place for the upcoming month of February. As I mentioned, we will now have a payment box located at the far side of the pool in the corner near the free standing 3 meter. Please turn in all checks to the box. Likewise cash payments should be placed in the box as well in an envelope with your name and amount paid. Bank drafts and credit card payments will continue to be made at the front desk. If you have any payment questions, please contact the coaching staff.
USA Diving has confirmed the site for the 2013 East National in West Lafayette, Indiana. Those of you who will be participating at spring regionals and will likely qualify for East Nationals begin to make your hotel reservations and block your hotel rooms as soon as possible before they’re out. The team hotel will the Courtayard Marriott at Purdue. USA Diving is offering a discount rate of $109 per night at the Courtyard but to book the $109 rate you must go through their website at www.usadiving.org. The other hotel options around the area where very pricey so make sure to block your rooms.
Those of you who are unable to block a room at the Marriott we are working on blocking rooms at another hotel near by but we are waiting on confirmation. Will keep you posted.

A huge thank you to all the parents for helping us put on the YCF Christmas Invitiational. This was definitely the best one we have had yet and I received numerous compliments from the visiting coaches and teams. We could not have had such a great event without the support of our parents for taking time to volunteer. Our parents worked hard decorating our diving well and making it look so festive. I was so proud of our team as our divers performed great! I was impressed with the performaces and development of our kids. I felt like everyone did a great job competing and felt like the divers gained vaulable experience. Overall it was a great weekend and congratulations to all our of divers!
We will post the results for the meet here shortly!
YCF Diving is adding another great coach to our phenomenal coaching staff! In response to concerns over class size and diving time, we have decided to have Coach Ron Minor join YCF diving beginning Monday, November 19th.
Coach Ron will be working alongside Coach K to cover lesson and pre-team divers. The addition of Coach Ron was to minimize class sizes so that our divers could receive more one on one attention with their respective coach. Divers will get the opportunity to practice more dives during a given practice and receive more attention. Ron will make a strong addition to our great coaching staff so please welcome him to the YCF diving family.
