Swim Team Buddies


Springwood Swim Buddies

A core part of our team spirit comes from our long standing tradition of Big/Little Buddies! Every swimmer who participates is assigned a buddy. Buddies are asked to give a small token of encouragement and friendship throughout the season. Most families do some form of encouragement at every meet, but this is not required. It can be a handmade sign, a card and balloon, a healthy snack, a favorite candy… any small trinket! On Buddy Night, at the season's end, it is customary to celebrate with one final larger gift!

If you would like your child to participate, please fill out this form and give it to Megan Gonzalez, or place in the "Buddy" envelope by Friday May 25th!

We will do our best to accommodate requests!

Swimmers will meet their Buddies at the Pot Luck Dinner on Friday June 1st!
