Parent's Meeting Notes
VBSL – our team is part of the Virginia Beach Swim League. The league has a total of 19 teams throughout the Hampton Roads Area. Within the league there are 3 divisions. BBCC is in the Dolphin Division, which is probably the most competitive division consisting of BBCC, Little Neck, Pembroke Meadows, Club Brittany, Oceana, & Great Bridge.
BBCCSA - Broad Bay Country Club Swim Association is the independent governing body of the Broad Bay Country Club Swim Team. We are a non-profit 501 c3 that is run by a volunteer board and relies on the hard-work of our parent volunteers to run swim meets. The team uses BBCC's pool and services to operate.
BBCC – Broad Bay Country Club is a private country club that allows members to be a part of our awesome swim team. (BBCC is run by its parent corporation, ARCIS.)
WILL MY CHILD MAKE THE TEAM? Coach Sarah will hold a swimmer evaluation session for all new 8&U and 6&U swimmers on Thursday, May 23rd. She will be looking for your child's ability to swim the length of the pool willingly and unaided.
FAMILY FOLDERS/RIBBONS – Every family will have a folder that can be found in plastic bins, normally placed outside the lifeguard office. Swim ribbons will be placed in the folders and can be picked up at the first practice following each meet. In addition to the ribbons VBSL provides, Coach Sarah will be handing out Personal Best ribbons at the beginning of each practice session following each meet (once the season begins).
INCLEMENT WEATHER - All practice cancellations will be texted through Remind. To join Remind, enter 81010 on your cell phone. Text the message @broadbay19. Practice and swim meets take place even if it rains. However, any sign of lightning or thunder will clear the pool. The pool remains closed for 30 minutes following the last sign of thunder/lightning.
