SPIRIT & BUDDY INFO


Every year, those swimmers who would like to have a buddy on the team can sign up for our buddy program.  It is a great way to build team spirit among all our swimmers!  This year we have one of our teens, Pauline Madreires, coordinating the program.

Younger swimmers are paired up with an older swimmer.  Each week there is a theme and an activity for the buddies to share in at the meets.  Common activities have been to cheer on your buddy during one of their races, bring your buddy their favorite snack, make a poster for your buddy and hang it up at the meet, etc.

We ask that if you choose to become a buddy, that you will participate every week with your assigned buddy.  If for some reason you will be gone or unable to meet with your buddy, then you should contact them to let them know and make other arrangements.
