Meets :  

9/16 - East Bay Silver Dolphins C/B/BB+ - Meet Report from Coach Rob:

“What a great weekend of firsts! For many of our swimmers this was their first meet in their life. For everyone it was the first swim meet of the new season, and for me it was my first meet with the Piedmont Swim Team!

First up is a great big thank you to everyone who competed. I knew Piedmont Swim Team was a special place, but this weekend proved it to me. From the older swimmers helping the new younger swimmers, to the parents showing incredible support and to the incredible help I got from Coach Zoe and Coach Colby this meet was a true joy to be at.

There were so many great swims and performances on the weekend, it is hard to single out any without missing so many. Congratulations to all the first timers at the meet. Hopefully, you felt the support from the rest of your teammates. While we had several disqualifications, I still felt that this meet was great. As I said in the team meeting on Sunday, it is only a mistake if you do it twice! If you learn from them, they are an incredible opportunity to improve your skills.

It was encouraging to see so many new personal bests in the first meet of the year. Keep up the great work! See you at the pool!”
