Dear LESD Families,
The Lake Erie Silver Dolphins were surprised by an announcement this week from Hathaway Brown regarding their decision to not continue their relationship with our team and start their own USA swim team. This transition will take effect at the conclusion of long course season.
This decision will not impact any of our other sites or practices. We will be in touch with more updates as soon as we can regarding any practice or location changes that could affect your families. We are dedicated to you and your swimmers and looking forward to another successful and fun season. LESD is the top-ranked USA Swim team in the region that creates opportunities for each swimmer to develop to his or her potential not only in the pool but also as a world class citizen.
All of the LESD coaches and staff would like to wish Hathaway Brown the best of luck in their future endeavors.
