WHAT IS YOUR WHY?  “I swim with BAY because I know the coaches care about my swimmers in AND out of the pool.”- anonymous

*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.

CROSSGATES SWIMMERS: With the start of the Spring session, we are in our final 5 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!!

PHS RACE TEAM MAKEUP PRACTICES: Since we will be having some days when the pool is closed by the school for on-campus events, we will be preemptively offering additional Race Team practices for those swimming at PHS in the blue and yellow groups.  Please mark your calendars to see if your swimmer is available for any of these EXTRA workouts (no additional cost):

  • Friday, March 15 from 5:15-6pm

  • Saturday, March 16 from 10-11am

  • Friday, March 22 from 4:30-5:15pm

  • Saturday, March 23 from 10-11am

  • Friday, April 5 from 4:30-5:15pm

  • Saturday, April 6 from 10-11am

  • Friday, April 12 from 4:30-5:15pm

PHS Race Team will change on the following days:

  • Thursday, March 21 (possible 6 and 6:45pm classes will still run and 5:15 swimmers can attend later class OR swim at Crossgates that day instead)

  • Wednesday, April 10 (possible 6 and 6:45pm classes will still run and 5:15 swimmers can do dryland at 5:15 OR attend 6:00 or 6:45pm at PHS OR swim at Crossgates that day instead)

  • Wednesday, May 1 (no practice at all)

  • Wednesday, May 22 (all MW Race Teamers will be invited to a huge last day of practice on Thursday, 5/23 instead!)

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): 3/14, 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.
