Team Suit and Dolphin Spirit-Wear
Team Suit: If you were unable to attend the swimsuit fitting on Sunday you can go to Colorado Swim Shop at 2525 Arapahoe Ave. in Boulder to have them fit your swimmer for our Team Suit. If you already know what size you need you may also purchase our team suit through the Gear Store on our website. This is also where you can purchase training fins which are recommended for all of our competitive swimmers. Our Team suit is optional for the Blue/Bronze Pre-Teams, but recommended and please note that our Team suit is the same as last year's.
Dolphin Spiritwear: All of our Dolphin logo apparel and gear is available for purchase through the Dolphin Spiritwear Store on our website. We have several new items this year including a quarter-zip poly sweatshirt, Speedo gear bag (limited quantity), and a new swim cap color. All orders placed by Sunday, April 20th will be available to pick up at our May 10th Open House at Memory Square. Orders placed by Sunday, May 25th will be delivered mid-June.
(This does not pertain to families of only Blue/Bronze Pre-Team Swimmers)
Our volunteer job signup is now open to all families. Families of competitive swimmers are required to sign up and work a total of 20 job points over our season’s 6 dual meets. This is a registration requirement. Your competitive swimmer’s status has been reset to “waiting for approval” and will be reactivated once you have committed to your 20 job points. To sign up you must first log in to your account through our website at www.louisvilledolphins.org. Our swim meets are listed under the Events tab and also on our Home page under the picture (swim meets). Find the meets you would like to volunteer at and click on the “job signup” button. (Please note that the 7-12 Broomfield meet has the most open jobs.) The available jobs to select are shown with a small checkbox. Select the job you would like to do and then click the signup button at the top or bottom of the page and add the volunteer’s name and cell number in the pop-up window. Once your swimmer has been reactivated you will be able to use the system for meet declarations and event requests, check swimmer times and meet results, etc.
Methods of Team Communication
Email & SMS Texting: Our main method of communication will be by email. Would you all please log into your account and double check all of your inputted information, add/correct information, and verify any unverified email addresses and SMS text numbers to ensure you receive our Team communications. A couple of things to note: the email addresses and SMS text numbers listed under your “Billing Account Configuration” are the only ones used for all of our Team communications. You can enter up to 4 email addresses and 2 SMS text numbers. For the older swimmers you will want to list their personal email and cell number there for them to be included. The email and SMS text number entered in each swimmer’s “Member/Athlete Profile” will only be used by the Coaches to communicate directly with the swimmer through their On Deck Coach App. Always click “SAVE ACCOUNT CHANGES” after making any changes. If you are NOT receiving our emails please check your junk/spam folders.
Louisville Dolphins Website: We have a new website platform this year through Team Unify which is currently evolving. A lot of the website content is viewable only to logged-in accounts. Our hope is to include as much information on it to answer any questions you may have about our Team. Please check it frequently. We welcome any questions, comments or suggestions you may have regarding its current content and any ideas for additional content you feel would be useful for the Team. Please send those comments to [email protected].
On Deck Parent: Our new Team Unify system is linked to a mobile app called On Deck Parent. This app is available for Android and iOS devices. After installing the app, log in using your same user name and password and enter the Team Alias “recbvldco”. You can do and see pretty much everything you can do on your computer. It’s pretty cool!
facebook: Louisville Dolphins Swim Team has a closed facebook Group just for its members to use to communicate with other team members. Please use it to post items you have lost, found, want to sell, buy or trade, arrange carpools and playdates, etc. Click on the link above or the blue “facebook” button on our website’s home page to join. We’d like to have everyone with facebook accounts join our Group, parents and swimmers.
Any questions/comments, please email them to [email protected].
