2014 Coastal Champs. Thank you to all of the families who helped run our Coastal Champs swim meet February 28 – March 2nd. We braved the inclement weather and together hosted a quality meet. The kids performed well and we earned a second place team finish. Our progress is inevitable! Congratulations and keep up the good work.
Swim Meet Schedule. Senior Group swimmers are attending a “Senior Invitational Meet” in Mission Viejo this weekend, March 21-23, then, will focus solely on their high school season until CIF on May 17th. Everybody else will participate in our very own Long Course Opener on April 26-27. This event will be posted online soon, but mark your calendars now. Please also see attachment to review the “tentative” swim meet schedule, detailed through to the end of the summer.
Annual Recognition Banquet. Mark your calendar for this annual event. This year, the annual recognition banquet will be on a Friday night, May 9th from 7-9pm. It will be hosted in Spirito Hall at Foothill Technology High School. The kids will be given their “collector item” participation pins, and we will again award the volunteer of the year and the coveted McConica Award. Everybody is invited and encouraged to participate to make this a fun event!
Swimmers in the Spotlight. The Buenaventura Swim Club coaching staff selects a swimmer from their group, usually on a bimonthly basis, who they feel is doing a great job at standing out from the crowd. Qualities include, but are not limited to, great attitude, supportive teammate, excellent attendance, demonstrated improvement at practice and meets, willingness to learn and make adjustments, and work ethic that inspires others.
