Haines Winter Games swim meet - Feb or March 2020
Haines Winter Games swim meet for Junior squad swimmers -
note* Swim meet date TO BE ANNOUNCED*
Haines Dolphins are back in the water as of December, but still awaiting their starting blocks.
WGB has been in touch and still await a date for the meet.
We do plan to hold a swim meet, but it hasn't been scheduled yet. The Haines pool repairs took quite a bit longer than expected, so the Dolphins returned to the pool only in December.
We are also upgrading our starting platforms, and they should be installed by the end of January.
Another factor that has delayed our meet scheduling is the very limited winter ferry schedule. We will have to coordinate with the Glacier Swim Club as to what date will allow them to come from Juneau at a reasonable cost.
I apologize for the delay. We will contact you later in January with proposed meeting dates.
Richard Chapell - President, Haines Dolphins Swim Team Board
