Swim meet

 

THIS SATURDAY'S TIME TRIAL: The sun came out and our kids rocked it at Saturday’s quick event.  Check out the results here.

 

SUNDAY’S DISTANCE MEET: What a great meet for our swimmers!  So many tried brand new events or challenged themselves with longer races.  It was awesome to see you all helping each other through the meet.  Way to go BAY! Results will be posted on the site later this week.

 

UPCOMING WEEKEND’S MEET: We have two upcoming meets this weekend.  Our Varsity/Senior swimmers will be heading to Pleasanton, while our age group swimmers will be heading to Morgan Hill.  Stay tuned for meet guides coming later this week.

 

WILLOW GLEN PRACTICES: All Gold, JV, JV+, Prep, Varsity and Senior swimmers will shift to the high school pool starting this week.  Race Team (blue and yellow) will get to spread out in the middle school pool.

 

THIS IS THE FINAL WEEK OF FALL RACE TEAM: The blue and yellow group session will end this Thursday and have 2 weeks off before the Winter Race Team begins.  If your swimmer would like to join us, be sure to register on the site.  If they will be taking time off and returning in the Spring, mark 2/1 on your calendar (the day to register for the Spring Race Team.)  

 

USA SWIMMING REGISTRATION/INSURANCE: For all those who have not yet completed their USA Swimming registration for the upcoming year, the link will be emailed to you this morning.  If your swimmer will be swimming with BAY at all in 2023, they need to have this registration complete before the end of December.  This used to be something I was able to register all of our members into, but USA Swimming has now required all families to complete this on their own.  Please let me know if you have any questions. 

 

SAFE SPORT:  USA Swimming’s Safe Sport program, a comprehensive abuse prevention program, consists of a multi-layered approach to keep kids safe, including: required policies and best practice guidelines; mandatory screening, including criminal background checks and employment screening; training and education; monitoring, supervision and mandatory reporting.  If you haven’t yet completed your Safe Sport training, USA Swimming is putting on a zoom training session for athletes ages 12+.  These are easy to do right from home!  If you’d prefer to complete training on your own time, you can find out more here
