News From Coach Kevin - Meet Recap

Posted by Birmingham Blue Dolphins on Oct 24 2022 at 12:02PM PDT

Dear Swimmers and Parents,

What a weekend!!!

Our swimmers had a terrific debut meet, and we all (swimmers, coaches, and parents) learned a great deal. The coaches have the feedback that will inform their practices going forward, and the swimmers can begin to craft goals for the season. Goal sheets will be available as soon as we have all of the qualifying times for major meets from US Swimming.

Thank you to all of you who made it possible. The meet ran very smoothly under the watchful eyes of our meet managers, Liz Solomon and Dennis Jackson. There were several people who worked all four sessions: Kara Howe provided hospitality, our head official Bill Clifford and on computers, Michelle Schwab. I am sure there were others as well who went above and beyond. I am very grateful. I am thrilled to be associated with a parent group with such high standards. The swimmers (and coaches) reaped the benefits.

This Thursday, the 9-10s will have an underwater camera session at Covington 5:30-7:30. You must pre-register by signing up for the limited spots via the following link:

On Saturday, due to a conflict at Cranbrook, the 9-12 practice will end at 1:00. Please make a note of that if your children are attending (and they should be attending!!)

We are off to a great competitive season. Enjoy it!!
