BAY MOBILE LESSONS: We have launched our mobile swim school. If you have a pool, then we have a lifeguard certified instructor or a swim instructor+lifeguard that will travel to your home to work with your swimmer. Registration information is now available on our website! Please tell a friend or three. We are VERY excited about this new way to reach our swimming community.
SUMMER READING CHALLENGE: Looking for a way to stay motivated this summer and tap into some real page turners? Check out our BAY Summer Reading Challenge! We will be tracking our swimmers, parents and coaches as they submit log entries throughout the months of June and July. Fill out the form including the title, author, number of pages and recap. We will have awards for the person in each age group who reads the most number of pages this summer!!! We will divide into ages 6 and under, 7-8s, 9-10s, 11-12s, 13-14s, 15-18s and parents/coaches. Who doesn’t love prizes?!?!
Our book review of the week comes from Gold swimmer, Isabel Mata who read Clan of the Cave Bear by Jean Auel (495 pages!!!) “A 5 year old girl living in the woods loses her family to an earthquake, is attacked by a cave lion and adopted into the clan of the cave bear. She is adopted by the medicine woman of the group and her brother who is the mon-gour or magician. They teach Ayla, the girl, their language of hand gestures and she quickly is fluent and forgets her old life. But the rest of the clan doesn't forget. One man in particular believes she is a threat to the clan and is intent on proving it.”
CONGRATS TO THIS WEEK’S WINNER: Senior swimmer, Chris Hyder. He recommends the movie Cars! “Cars has always been one of my childhood favourites. I have always loved the fictional town of Radiator Springs and all the characters in the film. McQueen's kindness is what inspires me. At the final race in the movie, McQueen chooses to help his struggling opponent instead of winning the race. The movie teaches us all a great lesson about sportsmanship.”
