Note from Coach Kevin - November 28th

Posted by Birmingham Blue Dolphins on Nov 28 2022 at 06:55AM PST

Dear Parents and Swimmers,

I hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving.

Over the break we welcomed several of our alums back to practice….

Madison Helmick (University of Illinois-Chicago)
Timmy Page (Williams)
Jimmy Violassi (Wayne State)
Marin Dalziel (John Carroll)
Patrick Branch (John Carroll)
Jerome Wiater (Colby)
Hannah Deighan (University of Maine)

It was so good to see them and hear that they are thriving!

Each year at the holidays we give the swimmers a bag tag that lists all relevant time standards for major meets. We have begun distributing them. See your lead coach if you haven’t gotten one yet. They are not merely for decoration on swim bags. PLEASE FILL THEM OUT including the emergency phone number. We hope we never need to call, but it is an important safeguard.

For the meet this weekend, remember to be punctual and have event numbers on the hands of the younger swimmers. Remind swimmers to pick up their awards. Almost the entire team is swimming, so we have canceled practices on Saturday and Sunday and 9/10s and 11/12s are combined at Cranbrook on Friday night. A separate email will be sent with further practice changes for this week.

Our high school boys will begin their seasons at their schools this week. We will miss you. Remember, you are always welcome at our practices during your season.

Have a great week!
