Brooks Blue Marlins Notes

Howdy returning and new Blue Marlins

We are so excited for this season to begin!  We can't wait to meet our new team mates this week.  Piranhas are very thankful to the Marlins for their warm welcome and support of our arrival to the team this season.  We are grateful to all for the hiring of our Coach that we have had for 12 years, Coach Keele will serve as the Assistant Head Coach this season. Also, thank you to the Marlins’ board for creating a board member position for myself, Christina Shaw and the Piranhas to ensure a voice on the board.  I have served as the Piranhas President for three seasons, VP for one, and Volunteer Coordinator for two seasons.  I love swim, especially summer swim.  I am very excited to see how this “blended” swim family works together this season as one..

Please come introduce yourself to me, I love meeting new swim families and helping in any way I can.  :) When my Matthew is swimming in his events, or my niece or nephew, you will hear me..or at least that is what I am told.

If your last name begins with A-M please bring a large case of water during the first week of practice, else if your last name begins with N-Z please bring 2 12-packs of name brand soda. The proceeds from the sale of the drinks will help fund the team.
