Hello Blue Wave families! I wanted to share with you all an important change to our program that will bring some tighter unity to all of our swimmers and parents!
As most of you know, our program is made up essentially of three components: the team at BSAC, the team at Cheval, and our Precompetitive groups. When we competed at meets, I noticed that there was sometimes a divide with certain groups, and parents and swimmers not always sitting together. Most of you also noticed that our team was listed as “Brandon Sports and Aquatic Center”, and our team code was BSAC. As Head Coach, it is my goal to better unify our program and bring our families and swimmers closer together, which will make our program that much better!
I am happy to announce that as of our next meet, we will be swimming under the name of “BLUE WAVE SWIMMING”, and our team code will be BW! This move will help everyone feel united, and better represent our ONE BLUE WAVE philosophy!
Also in the works are plans to restructure our Precompetitive program in order to bring them in under the Blue Wave umbrella, which will provide better opportunities for younger swimmers to stay involved in our program longer!
To help foster this new unified approach, we are again offering the ONE BLUE WAVE T-shirts that were so popular last year! The shirts are Navy blue, with the OBW logo on front, and a name lettered on the back in white (see the attached picture of the front).
Shanon Schulte has again stepped up to the plate and offered to help us out with this order process! The shirts are $15 for short sleeves, and $18 for long sleeves. They are available in both Youth and Adult sizes! Instead of dealing with tons of checks and cash, we would like to be able to charge this to your Team Unify account, just as we would with meet fees. ALL ORDERS, including QUANTITY, SIZES, and NAME TO BE PRINTED ON THE BACK (Please double check spelling!), are to be emailed directly to Shanon at firstname.lastname@example.org. PLEASE DO NOT EMAIL THE COACHES! The DEADLINE for all shirt orders will be MONDAY, NOVEMBER 18th! There will be NO orders taken after this date, so don’t delay! If you have any questions, please email Shanon or call her at 813-759-3207.
Once received, your account will be charged according to the total number ordered, and you will be able to see that charge on your account history!
We are excited about our ONE BLUE WAVE direction, and as always we thank you for your support!
