Official Training, SUITS, New Assistants, Practice


Officials, Suits, New Assistants, Practice Schedule Adjustment
Official Training:
We will need to have more officials trained for the this season. Last year we had 10 officials which isn't a lot considering that Hammonton (a much smaller club) had 14!
Unfortunately, the closest places to certify are  Haddon Twp and Elmer. Below I have listed the dates and times of the free training.
Let's try and get 10 new officials this season. If your child has swam for one season, I'm confident you'll be able to pass the training.
Remember, all certified officials receive a $40 credit and receive their own SSA Official Polo! 
Certification lasts two summers.

Thursday, June 4th at Burlington County College 6pm-9pm

Team Suits:
So far, we have only had about 40 swimmers stop in to order their suits. Not bad for the first weekend but we need to get everyone in ASAP. This is our first time using Dolfin as a supplier and we want to make sure we have suits to start the season.
So far, we have noticed that the girls suits run a little tight. Seems like all the girls need to order up a size compared to what the swim in other suits. Please don't send me a size unless you have tried on a Dolfin Ceres suit.
Again, we are here everyday 10am-5pm. I'm also available later by appointment.
New Coach:
Ashley El Naggar
We're pleased to announce that we have brought on our fourth coach, Ashley El Nagger. 
Coach Ashley swam collegiately for Stevens from 2011-2012 before transferring to Rowan where she has been swimming ever since.
Ashley currently instructs stroke and turn clinics over at Rowan University. 
Previous to working at Rowan, Coach Ashley lifeguarded at a lake in Wayne, NJ and taught swim lessons. Interestingly enough, they had a lake swim team that actually competed in the lake.
Intern Assistant:
Randy McKeeby
To help with the development of the younger swimmers, we have also brought swimmer, Randy McKeeby on board.
Randy has worked for us as a lifeguard for the last 3 years and will have a role very similar to what coach Jess's was during our first year, being an assistant and swimmer on the team. This is Randy's last year of summer swimming eligibility, having previously swum for Greenwood Park.
