Dear Parents and Swimmers,

BBD is off to a fine start!

We have tweaked the schedule and we plan to offer some more opportunities as they become available. Thank you for your flexibility.

A few reminders…

… If you were unable to attend our parent meeting, please take some time to read our parent handbook to understand our team’s philosophy and procedures.

… Safety first! Everyone (swimmers and parents and coaches) MUST wear a mask inside the buildings. Swimmers can remove them just as they are reporting to their assigned lanes and put them back on when they are getting ready to leave.

… Safety first! Please escort your children safely into the venues for practice and retrieve them at the end.

… I don’t think I need to say it, but never send a swimmer with any kind of symptoms to practice. If they miss school, they shouldn’t be at that evening’s practice.

… All swimmers must bring fins to practice.

…Drylands for 13-14 and 15-18 swimmers will be on Monday and Wednesday from 6:15-7:00 before practice on the courtyard at Cranbook outside the pool (as weather permits) and above the pool if the weather doesn’t cooperate. These sessions are provided by the board to supplement in-pool training. Please take advantage of this great opportunity.

I’m glad you are all with us. It’s going to be a great season!
