WHAT IS YOUR WHY ?   I swim because it is probably my favorite thing to do. I grew up swimming and it is really fun to compete with Swim South Bay.” -Sean O’Donnell, Varsity swimmer

FEBRUARY’S ZONE CHAMPS: Our swimmers ROCKED the meet this weekend and we finished 2nd in the medium team division!  We had more lifetime bests and heat winners at this Zone Championship meet than in any other zone meet in our team’s history.  We were in the lead after day 1, but had to fight for every point on Sunday since we had half the number of swimmers attending today.  We held on for 2nd place with our very scrappy swimmers working their tails off!!! In a weekend with more sunshine than rain, we really lucked out (even the snow in Morgan Hill finished falling before warmups started this morning.)

A special thank you to all the parents who made the meet run smoothly with their outstanding volunteering and our FIVE officials who worked both days in order for our swimmers to score points.  We couldn’t do any of this without the support of these special parents! (One official is a BAY alum, as all his kids are in college now, but he came back just so our kids could score!)

The Heat Winner contest was won by raffle: Megan Pham (JV at XG) and Kate Haeberle (G2 at PHS.)  See Coach Marisa for your movie ticket gift certificate!


A special congratulations to our 12th graders who raced in their very last Zone Champs meet: Gabe Iorgulescu, Rilie Krieg, Isabelle McKenzie, Julie Mesita, Audrey Nashner, Laura Powers and Maddy Thompson.  Thank you for all the years you have given to BAY at this big team meet!


If you weren’t able to join us this year, we’d love for you to join us at our SVSL Champs in July or next Winter Champs in early 2020.  If we had all 400 of our swimmers attend, we would be absolutely invincible!

 

NEW TEAM SUIT LINK: Our official swimwear provider, Illusions Activewear, has made ordering team suits easier than ever before.  Check out the link they have created for our team! Supporting local business with great quality suits for every water lover in your home.

 

LAST CALL LIFEGUARD TRAINING: If you have someone in your life who is at least 15 years old and would like to become lifeguard certified, have them check out the link to the class we are offering over February Break. Registration forms are due TOMORROW to the PHS pool office (2/11.)

 

SUMMER EMPLOYMENT: Come join our team! We are hiring for summer swim instructors, coaches, lifeguards and office staff.  Our swimmers are the best, the perks are outstanding and the community is second to none. Email resumes to office@swimsouthbay.org !

 

SPRING RACE TEAM REGISTRATION OPEN TO ALL: Classes are filling up fast for the Blue and Yellow group swimmers to join us for Spring Race Team!   If you’d like to get your first choice of class day/time/location, be sure to register sooner than later!

 

Swimmers in the Gold, JV, JV+, Prep, Varsity and Senior groups do NOT need to register for this “Spring Race Team” session; this is ONLY for those in the Blue/Yellow group.

 

  • The PHS Spring session will run 3/4-5/23 (MW, TTh or M-Th at 5:15, 6:00 and 6:45pm, $480 for twice/week, $720 for 4x/week.) There will be two Saturday Stroke Clinics (4/27 and 5/17) and two Race Nights (4/19 and 5/11.) Read more about these clinics and race nights on the "events" page of the website.

  • The XG Spring session will run 3/4-4/11 (MW 4:00, MW 5:30, TTh 4:00, TTh 4:45, TTh 5:30, TTh 6:15, M-Th 4:00 or M-Th 5:30, $240 for twice/week, $360 for 4x/week.) The session is shorter since the cabana team will start their practice on 4/15 and use the entire pool. This group is great for those BAY swimmers who leave us to join their neighborhood teams in the Spring.

  • Once you have registered, you will receive an email confirmation. Your account will be "Pending Team Approval" until our Winter session ends mid-February. Look for your welcome email towards the end of February!

 

SUMMER SWIM LESSON REGISTRATION: Our swim school registration is now open for our seasonal swim lesson program at PHS: www.swimatpres.org .  Saturday classes in May and weekday (M-Th) sessions in June and July.  If you like to plan ahead of time, it is beneficial to register for these one-on-one lessons early as they do fill up quickly.  We’ve already had 200 swimmers register within the first week of the system opening! Let’s all day dream about sunny days and make safe swimming kids a reality!!!
