Back to Swim Open House
Please join us this Saturday, May 10, at the Louisville Dolphin’s Back to Swim Open House at Memory Square from 10 – noon. Stop by to meet our coaches and take a tour of the facility. Refreshments will be served and Q&A sessions will be held at 10:15 and 11:15 a.m. - just meet at the bleachers on the pool deck. Attendance is strongly encouraged for all NEW families!
We will have your Dolphin spirit-wear orders that were placed last month available for you to pick up. We will also have our Dolphin spirit-wear on display so you can see and try items on. Our next team clothing order cut-off date is Sunday, May 25th for a mid-June delivery. All orders are done online through the Dolphins Spiritwear Store. We will also have Team Suits that were ordered from Colorado Swim Shop on or after our Swimsuit Fitting that was at the LRC on April 13. If you have NOT yet purchased your Team suit please go to Colorado Swim Shop in Boulder at 2525 Arapahoe Avenue (south of McGuckins) to get a suit before our first meet. We ask that the first thing you do before your swimmer wears their suit is to please PUT YOUR SWIMMER'S NAME IN THE SUIT so if it ends up in our Lost and Found we’ll know whose it is and can return it. Otherwise we won’t have a clue! We also recommend putting your swimmer’s name on their swim fins, agility paddles (11-12’s) and Dolphin Team clothing!!
Thank you to ALL of our competitive swim team families for signing up for your volunteer jobs. We hope our new TeamUnify system was easy to use. If you would like to double-check what you signed up for you can do that easily by selecting “EVENTS” then “REPORTS” and then “Job Signup Report for my Account” once you have logged into your account. If you have a conflict with any of your shifts please find a replacement and notify your area’s coordinator and the volunteer coordinators of the change. You will still need to complete 20 volunteer job points by the end of the season to fulfill your requirement.
Please put on your calendars two of our upcoming FUNdraisers – Chipotle (June 11) and Old Santa Fe Mexican Grille (June 25). We will also have our $5 reloadable Dolphins King Soopers fundraising cards available for purchase at the Open House this Saturday so please bring your checkbook or cash if you would like to support the Louisville Dolphins while shopping at King Soopers this summer.
Pre-Season practices start next Thursday, May 15! Come with your cap, goggles and suit on ready to swim!! Please note that the practice times after Memorial Day will be later due to pool availability. See “Practice Schedule” under the “Team Info” tab for the season’s complete schedule. ALL Team practices are held at Memory Square Pool.
Silvers @ 3:45 p.m.; 9-10’s @ 4:30 p.m.; 11-12’s @ 5:30 p.m.; 13-18’s @ 6:30 p.m.
Please note that our Blue/Bronze Team practices start on Monday, June 2nd at 6 p.m.
In case of inclement weather please call our Rain Line at (303) 952-5036 to see if your practice has been cancelled. We will also attempt to notify you through our new TeamUnify system so please make sure your emails and cell phone numbers for texting are in your account. Enter your older swimmer’s personal emails and cell phone numbers in your “Billing Account” section if they want to receive our communications also. Their information may also be entered in the “Member/Athlete Profile” section for direct Coach communications.
Our Team Website has a wealth of information for our families and swimmers. Please log into your account to view Team Calendars, Practice and Meet Schedules, do your Meet Declarations and event requests, sign up for Stroke Clinics and Camp Make-ups, etc. Please check it frequently and note that most of the information is only viewable to our Team Members after logging into your account.
Thanks and we hope to see you on Saturday!
