Good morning! As we welcome new and returning swimmers back to our pool tonight, I would also like to take the time to welcome Coach Erin Kennedy to ARAC! Erin is starting her first year here, coming in as the Aquatics Director at HealthTrax in North Haven for two and a half years. She has also taught swimming lessons, in Wallingford, Hamden and North Haven for the last ten years. Erin swam competitively as a youth and in high school was a member of the Cheshire Ram's nationally recognized team for all four years. Welcome Erin!

I would also like to say goodbye and thank Coach Hilde for her time with us over the past year. Coach Hilde has begun taking classes for her Masters in Education and teaching certification. ARAC will always have a place for Hilde, should she look to return when she finishes her education!  "This team will always be a big reason of who I am today and in my decision to pursue a career in teaching, and will always hold a special place in my heart."  

Best of luck Coach Hilde!
