MESSAGE FROM COACH TALLI

Hello Dolfin Families!

Hard to believe we are starting week 4! I am so happy with the progress that the swimmers are making. I am really having a lot of fun working with all the age groups!

Community Foundation Grant

I am so excited to let you know that we received a $500 grant from the Pleasant Hill Community Foundation! I have been wanting to start a strength and flexibility training program with our older swimmers and this will help pay for the equipment that we need.

We are looking to purchase therapy bands, stability balls, strength training bands, jump ropes, medicine balls and in water training discs. If you have any of this kind of equipment and you no longer use it, we will happily take it as a donation. If you work for a company that would

like to help support this strength and injury prevention program, please let me know.

Sun Protection

Please remember to put sunscreen on your swimmers at least 20 minutes before they get in the water. If you put it on right before they get in the pool it washes off into the water and it is one of the main reasons the water hurts their eyes. If you choose to have your swimmers wear a protective swim shirt to practice, please make sure they are tight fitting. The loose fitting shirts are very hard to swim in and drag down the swimmers.

Swim Caps

We will be handing out maroon PHD latex caps to all swimmers at Time Trials. We like all swimmers to wear them, at swim meets. We sell Silicone caps with the same design at our team sales table. If you would like to order personalized caps, you must do that through the Zumo website.

The suits that were just ordered, will be delivered at Time Trials. If you missed out on the suit fitting, you will have one last chance to try them on at Time Trials.  Those suits will be delivered by Battle of the Ages.

Nacho/Bingo Night

Don’t miss out on our fun Nacho/Bingo Social! Buy your tickets now!

Please let me know if you have any questions. I am always available by email or text.

See you on the pool deck!
