Elmbrook Swim Club – Newsletter – November 27, 2019 - Week 12



Elmbrook Swim Club Mission Statement:

Empower community members to achieve excellence in life through swimming.



Feeling Thankful - From the Schultz Family

We are often asked how we like being part of EBSC and without hesitation we say “we love it!”    Our entire family has felt so welcomed, included and supported by parents, coaches and swimmers.  

Making the decision to leave our previous team wasn’t easy.  We had to convince our son to try one practice with EBSC.   While waiting for Sam to finish practice we couldn’t believe how many parents said hello to us.  We felt immediately welcome.   On our drive home Sam said “mom I love it, can I switch teams now?”  We were surprised how much he loved the practice because he wasn’t unhappy on his other team.  We dug a little deeper and asked him specifically what he loved.  He said the kids were super nice, the coaches were awesome and he loved everything about it.  He told us a story about the boys trying to determine their swim order and asked him his time in the 50 breaststroke.  Sam said it was a 41.00.  One swimmer quickly replied “that’s great, we’ll get you under 40”.   That statement spoke volumes of the culture on EBSC.  A fellow swimmer wanted Sam to have success and the team would help him be successful.  

Our entire journey to joining the team has been nothing short of wonderful.   We can’t count how many parents have introduced themselves and welcomed us to the team.  Everyone is so friendly!  At swim meets Sam has been congratulated, received fist bumps and high fives from swimmers, coaches and parents.  We often ask Sam what he likes about EBSC and without fail his answer is “everything, I like everything!”  

We are thankful that EBSC allowed our family to be part of this caring, friendly, inclusive and supportive team.  We are so grateful to everyone for making us feel part of the EBSC community.
