WHAT IS YOUR WHY ?   “I swim with BAY because the team has such a great, positive atmosphere. Everyone on the team is always supportive of one another and super nice.”- Claire Lipscomb, Varsity swimmer

 

*Share your own why by clicking on the “why” link above!  This is for parents and swimmers alike.

 

WELCOME SPRING RACE TEAMERS: We begin our new session today at both Crossgates and PHS.  Be sure to have your swimmer check in and get their new cap before practice begins.  If you need a refresher, here’s the welcome letter that was sent as we prepared the rosters for the new session.

 

OUR NEWEST ADDITION TO THE BAY FAMILY: Congratulation to Crossgates Race Team Coach Claire and her husband, Steve, as they welcomed their first child to the world on Friday, March 1.  Charlize Magnolia weighed in at 7 lbs, 20 inches and will be joining the Race Team in 2024. Claire has been working at the pool since she was a teenager and student at Presentation and her husband even taught summer lesson with us while in college.  We are so excited for you Cettel family!

 

THIS WEEKEND’S MEET AT OAQ: We sure dodged a bullet and averted a lot of inclement weather at this weekend’s meet held at Willow Glen High School.  We had over 20 swimmers compete in their VERY FIRST MEET and they raced like seasoned pros. Ribbons are being sorted as I type and should be available for pickup by tomorrow.  Results will be uploaded to our website under “my meet results.”

 

All swimmers in all of our groups are eligible to compete and we encourage all members to check out the “ events ” page to view what’s coming up.  There is something for everyone!

 

APRIL MEET AT VALLEY SPLASH: The meet host has changed their April meet from two days to SUNDAY ONLY (4/14.)   If you have RSVPed and can NOT attend on Sunday, please UNRSVP by noon on Monday so you are not entered or billed.  The meet host does not refund entry fees.   If you have not RSVPed but would like to attend, please log into the team website, click on “events” then choose “edit commitment” beneath the “Sunday only Valley Splash Long Course meet” and change your reply from blank to YES.  It’s going to be a blast swimming up on the hill in the 50 meter long pool that’s the OLYMPIC LENGTH. Need some nudging? Check out this link shared by a parent of two swimmers on our team.  Meets are such fun!!!

 

CROSSGATES SWIMMERS: With the start of the Spring session, we are in our final 6 weeks using the XG pool.  After April 11, the summer league program that is run by the homeowners association reclaims the pool for their use.  If your swimmer would like to continue to swim with us past April 11, please let us know your plans .  This is for blue, yellow, Gold, JV, JV+ and Prep swimmers.  Thank you in advance for helping me keep track of everyone!

 

*Spring Race Teamers- your session ends April 11.  If you’d like to continue swimming for the last 6 weeks of the PHS Spring session, fill out the form .  

 

*Gold, JV, JV+ and Prep- with so many of you making different choices for the spring/summer, can you also fill out this form ?  Remember, continuing with BAY while you are on your cabana team is allowed!  I bet your coaches would actually encourage these workouts!!

 

UPCOMING DRYLAND FOR JV/JV+ AND MORNINGS FOR V/S: PHS JV/JV+ dryland days: 3/20, 4/3 and 4/10.  Afternoons off for Varsity/Senior (morning swim only): 3/7, 3/14, 3/20, 4/3, 4/11. This does not pertain to Gold, Prep or Race Team swimmers.

 

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.

 

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 !

 

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!!!

 

PRIVATE LESSONS: Looking for a bit of “tutoring” for your swimmer?  Check out the “Events” tab/ “Private Lessons” link for available one-on-one lessons for your swimmer.  All lessons are held at PHS, coached from out of the water, are 25 minutes in length and $30/lesson billed to your BAY account.
