Hello Dolphin Families!

    Hello Dolphin Families!

    Are you excited for summer swim team?  We are!  We are hard at work preparing for the 2023 season.  We are still working on setting the meet schedule and other details but the Meet & Practice dates are now listed on the website HERE.  

    We should have more information in the next few weeks so stay tuned!  

    FINS:  Coach Emilie would like to add swim fins to the practices this year.  They are greatly beneficial in helping learn technique, especially with butterfly.  

    The team does not yet have any fins to share so  this would be something that would need to be purchased.  All age groups should plan on getting them, if possible. 

    The fins should be longer and flexible. She recommends "Bettertimes Swim Fins" if possible.  Swim N' Things carries this brand.  Bettertimes can also be found in other places such as  Swimoutlet.com.

    DO NOT buy or bring snorkel fins.  They are rigid and dangerous to other swimmers, especially in a crowded pool!

    Our hope is that everyone will be able to get fins this year.  If you have fins that your swimmer(s) have outgrown and you would like to donate them to the team, we'd love to have them!   If your swimmer would like to leave them at the pool and wouldn't mind sharing them, we will have a place to keep them.  Our goal is to eventually have enough donated ones so that not everyone will have to buy them in the future.

    SALE:  Speaking of Swim N' Things, they are having their HUGE 40% Off of EVERYTHING STOREWIDE SALE this week.  (40% off Regular priced items and 10% off sale items.)  

    This is a great time to get those fins, goggles, mesh bags and any other supplies you might need for swim team or maybe a Spring Break vacation?  (My family saved a bundle on snorkel gear several years ago!)

    Please contact Coach Emilie if you have any questions about the fins or practices.

    That's all for now!
