Note from Coach Kevin - Recap on First Weeks of Practice & Reminders
Dear Parents and Swimmers,
The first weeks of practice have been very productive and all of our groups are shaping up nicely.
Please remember to check the website regularly for any changes in the schedule and remember to escort your swimmers into and from the building. Just dropping them off is not safe. We have already had a few swimmers dropped off at canceled practices and we have waited for parents who were late retrieving their swimmers. (Coaches will not leave until everyone is safely picked up from a workout.)
Remember that we participate in both YMCA and USA Swimming competitions. For YMCA invitationals there are no time standards that a swimmer has to achieve before entering after the Cluster Meet when we go into state- and zone-wide competitions. USA Swimming frequently does have time standards to enter and we cannot accept entries until a swimmer has achieved those times. If and when there are exceptions we will advise you.
Remember, the group parents and coaches are ready to field your questions. Their email addresses are available on our website under “About BBD”.
We are looking forward to our first meets that are coming up in a few weeks.
