Goal Sheets in Swimmer Mailboxes 

Hi Swimmers in Intro, Intro Comp, Sq 1, Sq, 2 and Senior

Currently there is a goal sheet in every athletes mail folder at the pool. Coach Shannon and myself have spoken to the groups about what we expect, however I wanted to pass along the message as sometimes messages doesn't make it home. It is our expectation that all competitive groups (SNR, Sq1, Sq2) fill out their goal sheet and return to the coaches by Oct. We will then review the goals with the athletes and in some cases schedule meetings between athlete, coach and parent.

For Intro and IntroComp the goal sheet is optional. We wanted to include them and get them to start thinking about their swimming however we won't be chasing them to get it handed in. We have discussed with the Intro/IntroComp athletes that not all goals are time based and if an athlete wants to improve their dive or flip turn or even learn butterfly these are all appropriate goals.

Thank you.

Chris Henderson
Head Coach

 

 

HHBF Hockey Pool - Fundraising

Join the HHBF 2019-2020 Regular Season Hockey Pool

It's a great way to cheer on your favourite players, fundraise for the club, maybe win some money, and most importantly, earn bragging rights!

How It Works:

  •  
  • Complete the Hockey Pool entry sheet (in event on website) and submit it, along with the payment to the Hockey Pool Folder in the lobby mailbox.
  • Entries can also be completed online at http://HockeyDraft.ca
  • Complete as many entries as you like...ask your family, friends, co-workers, neighbours, and so on! The more entrants we have, the bigger the winnings will be.
  • Cost to enter is $20 per sheet (cheque payable to HHBF)
  • Proceeds will be split between the club and the winners.
  • 1st, 2nd, 3rd, middle and last place will be awarded prizes, the amount to be determined after total proceeds are tallied.
  • For each sheet you submit, $10 will be credited towards your swimmer's fundraising obligation - be sure to write your swimmer's name on the top of all the forms you submit.
  • All entrants will have access to the online pool to track your progress and of course, trash talk your competitors!
Completed forms and payment are due by 5:00pm, Wednesday, October 2. To ensure the draft is fair to all, no entries will be accepted after this date and time. Please allow a few days for all the entries to appear on the website.
