Swim Families –
A few reminders,
- Team gear orders are due by 2 PM this Wednesday. Don’t forget to visit the site to at least enter a size for the team pullover ($0 – included in team fee). https://2019bhsswim.itemorder.com/sale
- Our first meet is next Tuesday 12/3/19! We open our season at home in a tri-meet with Botkins and Minster. Swimmers will arrive at 5:30 to set up, warm ups will begin at 6 PM, timers meeting at 6:15 PM, and races as close to 6:30 as possible. This meet will be finished between 8 and 8:30 PM. All athletes must stay until the end of the meet and help clean up.
- Our second meet is on Saturday 12/7/19 at Trotwood-Madison High School. Due to a ridiculous number of entries (around 600) the meet was split into two sessions. We are in the afternoon session. Our bus will leave at 11:15 AM from the Cafeteria side of BHS. Doors open at Trotwood for spectators at 12:30 PM and racing will begin at 2:20 PM. The meet should finish by 6 PM. Please note this is an adjustment from our original schedule – same meet, new time. Let me know if you have any questions.
- As a reminder, all athletes are expected to attend and participate in all practices and meets. If an athlete cannot attend or must leave early coaches need prior notice. During the holiday season there are a lot of family events that conflict with practice. We are family first, but the missed time only counts as “excused” if the coaches are informed prior to the absence. Thanks in advance for your help with this! We want everyone to have an enjoyable season.
Our swimmers are crushing it in the pool and we are SO PROUD and SO EXCITED! Goal conversations are beginning and our athletes have set the bar high. We will work hard through Wednesday this week (Wednesday practice is still 3:30 – 5 P) then we truly hope our swimmers and families enjoy a break before the meet season whirlwind begins.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
