Bluefish Weekly Update
Monday, 9/16 thru Sunday, 9/22

“Nothing can substitute for just plain hard work. I had to put in the time to get back. And it was a grind. It meant training and sweating every day. But I was completely committed to working out to prove to myself that I still could do it.”- Andre Agassi


Cumberland Update
- Despite a strong bid from ABF to take over the management of the CHS pool, Cumberland School Committee awarded to the contract to another program. We will be moving the Junior 3 to the Downtown Attleboro YMCA pool for their Mon-Thu practices, which will now allow for greater dryland opportunities during the week. 

Updates to ‘regular’ schedule.
Junior 3 will be moving from Cumberland to the Downtown YMCA pool, Mon-Thu from 6:30-9:00
- Senior 1/2/3 workouts will be split at the Downtown pool. ‘Early’ from 3:15-6:30 and ‘Late’ from 4:00-7:15. HS Prep workouts will be at the Pleasant St. pool from 7:15-8:45. Athletes have spoken to coaches about their ‘preferred/regular’ practice time.
