MASK REMINDER: Swimmers should be in masks coming into and out of practice each day.  Thank you for your help in making sure they have masks on when they leave your car!  

FRIDAY PRACTICE for BHS SWIMMERS: Due to a home polo game at Branham on Friday, our Gold, JV, JV+ and Prep swimmers will shift to Crossgates for the day.  Please see practice times above.  They will swim at 1297 Peralta Drive, just 2 miles from Branham.

 

WEEKEND UPDATE: The Time Trial on Saturday at Branham went very well for our contingent of racers!  Check out this list for results by event and listed alphabetically.

 

SATURDAY’S CLINIC: Swimmers in all groups will have their clinic held at Branham this coming Saturday, October 16.  RSVP on the site. 

 

FALL AND WINTER RACE TEAM: If your swimmer is enrolled in the Race Team (blue and yellow group), their Fall session ends on Thursday, November 18.  We hope to open Winter Race Team registration on October 25 (we are just waiting on available pool times from Branham before we do so.)  Registration info will be emailed as soon as we have details.

 

*Gold, JV, JV+, Prep, Varsity and Senior swimmers are enrolled through July 2022.

CREEK CLEAN UP: Join us as we partner with the South Bay Clean Creek Coalition on Saturday, October 30 from 10-noon to clean up the Los Gatos Creek at Blackford School. No special skills or tools needed – just a desire to restore our creeks and rivers to their former glory. SBCCC supplies the gloves, bags, and trash grabbers on the day of the cleanup. Every little bit helps to reclaim and restore our creeks and rivers.  This is a great opportunity for parents to serve along with your kids as we do good for the environment and our community.  All should wear sturdy shoes, long pants and long sleeves.  Please don't wear anything that you are afraid of ruining!  Signing in and waivers will be done by scanned QR codes. Swimmers ages 15 and under should attend with a parent, but we hope ALL will come with a parent, sibling/friends to help clean our creek.   

 

LAST CALL! OFFICIALS ARE NEEDED: Our team is in desperate need for stroke & turn officials who help at swim meets.  If you would like to learn more about becoming an official, please contact Coach Marisa. There will be a VIRTUAL officials' Clinic to be Held October 16, 2021 from 8:00 am until 12:30 pm. As the 2021-2022 swim season commences, there is an immediate need for new Stroke and Turn Officials, as well as a need for Refresher Training for our Current Officials.
