I've had a set back in getting swim registration ready this year. My father passed away, I wasn't sure if I had a business license because of an irritated neighbor, and I'm just running behind. I'm not trying to ignore your emails, but I've just not had time to reply. I'll be putting the sessions up with in the next 2 weeks. I'll send out an email when they are ready. The goal is to have them ready by January 22nd. Thanks for your patience. Sincerely. .Ann
