BASH Update

Bill Whatley

BASH Swimmers and Families,

Finishing our first week of practices for our older swimmer – all has gone well!

This week of September 13 – Age Groups 2-3-4 begin, schedule for all below.

  1. Looking forward to another great season, many of our swim meets are posted on our website, PLUS Swim Suit fitting, Saturday, September 25, Parent Meeting, Sunday evening, September 26.
  2. Coach Bill and Coach Ed are off to a coaches’ conference next Wednesday- Sundays, Coach Adam and Coach Chris will cover their groups.
  3. Sr 1 has Wednesday September 15, OFF
  4. Sr 2 has Thursday September 16 off
  5. Our biggest struggle at the YMCA is our lack of Lifeguards, If your swimmer is a guard and would like to guard (and be paid) the Y is looking desperately!! Or if you know of others who might be interested, please reach out to Coach Bill or Coach Ed.  Please have them consider guarding some this fall/ winter (or at least until the Y can get more guards). Many businesses are short staffed, so is the YMCA!!
  6. Lastly, we are looking for more swim coaches – any ideas?? If you know of anyone, please pass on Coach Bill’s email.
