DOLFINS WEEK 3 NEWS!!!

Amy Ross

Greetings Dolfins!  Welcome to week 3!  We hope all new families are getting the hang of things and returning families are remembering things from 2019 :) By the end of this summer we will all be swim team experts, I promise!  As always, respond to this email with any questions and I will be sure to get back to you promptly.  GO PHD

Practice Reminders

We are allowing the 6&U and Mini swimmers to have one parent on the pool deck during practice, but it is very important that all parents stay back from the pool and maintain distance between other households. Masks are required for everyone on the deck and for all swimmers when not in the water.

 Health and Safety Procedures

We are sending again the Standard Operating Procedures we have developed for the health and safety of all participants and staff.  If you have any questions about the procedures, or should your child develop symptoms of COVID-19, notify Aquatics Program Manager Korey Riley at the District Office,  925.682.0896, or [email protected].

Team Suits

The online store has closed for team suit orders.  Suits ordered before the store closed will be distributed at Time Trials (5/23).  At Time Trials, we will have the sizing kit and the store will open for a final chance to order.  Please watch your email for more information, including deadlines, as we get closer to Time Trials.

Family Fee & Work Assignments

It takes a lot of volunteers to run a swim team and all of the team activities.  Once the meet schedule and total number of families is determined, the number of work assignments is confirmed.  We will discuss work assignments at the team meeting on May 20, 2021.  Sign-ups for work assignments will open after the team meeting.

 Some jobs are season long jobs.  One season long job area where we need a strong team this year is the Desk Team.  The Desk Team is comprised of Computer System, Desk and Timing System.  These positions work together to ensure swimmers get accurate times at meets, and they get a front row, shaded seat to the entire meet. it is by no means complicated, but does take a tiny bit of training.  If you are interested in learning more about the Desk Team, please contact Amy Ross, [email protected] It is a FUN WAY to attend a swim meet!!!

In order to ensure that everyone works their assignments, all families must submit a $500 Work Fee Deposit Check.  Checks are not cashed unless families do not complete their work assignments.  Checks can be turned into the pool office when your swimmer checks in for practice.  Please include your swimmer(s) name on the check.

For more information, please see the Work Assignments page of the team website.

 

NOTE FROM COACH TALLI

Hello Dolfins Families-
 
I can't believe we are already starting week three! The swimmers have settled in really well and I can already see improvements in their fitness level. This week we will be focusing on Butterfly. I was really impressed with the progress they made in Backstroke last week. They are doing a great job of asking questions and working together as a group. Please continue to encourage them to communicate with their coaches and contact me directly if you have any questions or concerns. 
 
I am no longer a full time employee with the District so I am not on my email as often as before. Quickest way to get me is with a text. There is a lot of information on the Dolfin's website as well. The most important thing for you to do is read the weekly email because that is where we will tell you everything you need to know for the week including important deadlines. 
 
See you on the pool deck!
