The 2017 Swim Team season is here!

A new season is almost upon us, come join the Brookview Swim Team and be part of our swim family. Any Brookview Pool member can join.  We’ve had swimmers as young as 4 and as old as 18. For 6 and under swimmer there is no previous swim experience required. If your swimmer is 7yrs old or older they need to be able to swim one lap of the pool without help.

BOTH the Swim Team and the Dive Team are part of the Suburban Swim Association (SSA). Therefore, most of the time, our dive and swim meets will be at the same location.

Key dates and events for the upcoming season are:

1. Thursday April 27th from 6-8pm at the Bellbrook Middle School Large Group Room.

A.)Swim Team Sign ups: Even if you do not intend to purchase a team swim suit, please come on out and sign up for the team so we can get everyone’s paperwork in order. Your swimmer must have a medical release on file before they can get in the water for practice.

*Cost is $55 per swimmer.

B.) Swim Suit Fitting: We will be offering the same swim suit as last year (black suit with brookview dolphin logo). Purchasing a team suit it not a requirement to be on the team. Your swimmer can wear any suit to practice or participate in swim meets. *If you miss this event and would still like a suit, please visit https://www.agonswim.com/cgibin/orders/customProductsK.cfm?page=all&clientid=101992 or contact Amber Vroman at 848-2020.

 

2) Saturday, May 27th from 12-3 PM at the pool. If you miss the signs ups being held on April 14th, we will have someone on the pool deck on May 27th from 12-3pm to collect registration paperwork and payment.

 

3.)Pictures: Tuesday 13th at 10am. We will not have water practice but we need everyone to show up for the team picture. We will also have the first meets events on the wall for everyone to see what they are swimming and answer any questions you have about the meet.

Other Information:

Volunteers! We must have all volunteer slots filled for each meet, to be able to compete. We require each family to do their part and sign up for 4 volunteer slots during the season. A sign-up sheet will be available at practice so if you have not done so yet, please find a spot you can help with. Many jobs are easy and do not require any experience.

Folders: Each family will have a folder at the pool in the swim team container which will be available on the table every practice. Please check this folder for information on extra events, picture forms, after parties, fundraisers, etc.

Shutterfly Website: The swim team has its own Shutterfly website where we can contact one another, upload pictures, and access a variety information. If you haven't done so already, please create a free account to stay in contact with us. Most of our communication will come through your email in this way.

Concessions: For our home meets we ask all families to contribute food items to be sold during the meet. Please follow the Concessions flyer form (on the shutterfly site and we will try to put one in everyone's folder) to see what items you are signed up to bring- we use a rotational alphabet schedule.

After Parties: we will have a fun "after party" after each of our home meetings. Please check your folders/emails as these events are planned and more information will be sent out. We ask those who attend to pay $3/person or $10/family to cover the cost of the party supplies.

Midnight Madness: date is still to be determined- tentatively scheduled for Friday July 7th. We pick an evening and hold a swim party for our swimmers. Usually from 8-10pm. In the past, the kids have enjoyed snacks, playing water games, holding a diving competition, being the lucky winner to put a pie in their coach’s face, diving for money and more!
