Message from Coach Kevin - October 9th

Posted by Birmingham Blue Dolphins on Oct 09 2023 at 06:58PM PDT

Dear Parents and Swimmers,

Please pay attention to the pool cancellations this week.

We had a fine time at the parent’s social on Friday evening. Swimming should be fun for the adults, too!

The revised qualifying times for the YMCA State Meet that we will be hosting at Saginaw Valley State are now on the website. The time standards for other championship meets are expected soon. After we receive these we will print our goal sheets to help the swimmers map their progress. Remember, championship meets are required so mark your calendars now. The dates for all of our championship meets are listed in “Meets” section of the website. The State Meet is called the 9 and over State Meet, but any younger swimmer who achieves a cut is welcome to attend as well.

​We are very fortunate to have the use of the Groves High School pool on Sundays. There are eleven lanes in the main pool. Coach Pat has been there filming our swimmers and giving them feedback. I’d sure like to see more of the swimmers take advantage of the Sunday workouts.

Please support our National Team by attending the Nat Team clinics. Our elite swimmers will be in the pool working with our younger athletes. It is a fundraiser, a great team bonding exercise, and very inspiring to our younger swimmers.

Have a great week!
