A few updates this week.
Girls, please fill out this survey https://forms.gle/7YdrusukTni2JEbH8 to let me know if you will be participating in the time trial this Thursday 9/2 at Woodridge 6:00p-8:00p. The time trial will be 50s of each stroke and relays.
Parents, if you would like to volunteer this season, please fill out the BSD athletics volunteer form here if you haven't already https://bsd405.org/get-involved/volunteer/.
We've added dual meet with Bainbridge to our schedule Sat 9/18 at Bainbridge Aquatic Center. The bus leaves BHS at 8:45a, with warm up at 10:30a. I'll be sending the bus schedule for all meets in a bit. This should be a good meet as Bainbridge is a fast team!
Mary Wayte Pool will have a scoreboard training for volunteers that would like to learn, Tuesday 5/7 at 7:00p. This is the same night as our info night 5:30p before practice at Woodridge, but anyone interested will still be able to attend both.
We will have a season info night with parents next Tue 9/7 before practice 5:30p at Woodridge. There is also a Fall sports info meeting tonight 8/31 7:00p in the BHS gym. I'll be there in case any families do come to that as well, but next week's meeting at Woodridge will be more in depth.
There was some confusion as to when our team picture day is, but confirmed it will be Fri 9/24 as emailed, 6:15p at BHS Stadium after practice. Prepay order form is attached. Captains are issuing team jackets this week, please wear your jacket to picture day!
That's all for now. Please fill out the survey to let me know if you can swim in Thursday's time trial. Will see you at our PM practices starting tomorrow!
Coach Michael would like to do a time trial on Thursday 9/2 during their evening practice 6-8pm. But we need parent volunteers in order for it to happen! Please review the available slots below and click on the button to sign up. Thank you on the button to sign up. Thank you!

I encourage everyone to bring a water bottle. Other things you will need are a swimsuit, goggles, cap, towel, maybe some flip flops and sunblock since we are outdoors and may still have some warm days!
Please keep in mind, to be eligible to compete you will need 10 practices without any deductions. This means you can only miss 3 practices to compete by our first meet 9/9. It's easiest to get these in at the beginning, especially before school starts. Divers, I strongly encourage you to attend some of the swim practices the first 3 days to get your practices in, as there may not be dive practices on those days! We can try to find more dive-specific things for you to work on as well, and also do some swim & dive team-building the first week.
On behalf of the Captains and Coach Michael, I hope you're having a wonderful summer! If you haven't checked the website recently, registration is currently open for 2021-22 athletics. The BHS Athletics page contains all of the information you need to register. Please make sure that registration, ImPACT Testing (divers), and physicals are complete prior to the first practice
