2021 Dolphin Families-
Hard to believe we are only a few short weeks until the start of our 2021 season. We are all certainly excited to get back to the pool this summer! There is a lot of information in this email, and we apprecitate you taking the time to read everything.
With the ongoing Covid concerns, there are aspects of this season that will not be the same as prior years, some of these include meet setup, volunteer needs, concessions, etc. Then throw in evolving directions from the CDC, VADoH, and our Governor, the Board is working with a shift in processes that may change mid-season. That said, we ask everyone be FLEXIBLE, PATIENT, and FORGIVING. And most importantly, willing to help!
In the upcoming weeks, there are several administrative things families will need to do. For new families, this may seem overwhelming, but if you make sure you read your emails from the team, log into the website, ask questions when you can’t find what you’re looking for-you will swim, not sink! We will be setting up times for Parent Meetings closer to the start of the season.
All families should make sure you can log into the website. Make it a habit to log in EVERY time you visit the site. There are pages of the website that are only visible to active families who are logged in. The Parent tab has a lot of information, and is recommended reading if you are a new family. Also look at information on Volunteering, Signing out for Meets, Setting up Text Alerts, Team Suits and Swimmer Rosters. VERY SOON we will be asking parents to check swimmer information against the roster, sign up for volunteer positions, sign out for any meets you will miss, and making sure your account is set up so you can get Text Alerts on your cel phone.
If you are a Facebook user, there is a closed group for Wellingto Dolphins Swim Team Parents that can be found HERE. Please make a request to join. It is a very active group and a great resource to get questions answered by the senior, and somewhat salty “old-timers”.
