Locker Rooms

Tonight we had a discussion about locker room etiquette. We have had some issues with people going through other people's lockers, throwing other swimmers clothes into piles of water, and screaming in the locker rooms. Please be aware we will not stand of this as a team. Right now we are also sharing the locker rooms with middle school cheerleaders, they have also be informed that we will not stand for it.

I advise that swimmers lock their lockers up. I am more than happy to keep their combination on my clipboard so I can help them remember it.

If you know of any of this happening please bring it to my attention.

Also if your swimmer has brought home any other swimmers things (swim suits, goggles, clothing, etc) please have them bring them back into me. That being said make sure all of their stuff is labeled with their last name so I can be sure to get it back to the right owner.

-Coach Bri

With a heavy heart...

As many of you know I work for The United States Post Office. I have been working toward becoming a career employee for 2.5 years and I finally made it.  I was working on 3rd shift; however my new position is on 2nd. With that being said, it is with a heavy heart that I have to leave the program. Monday, June 13, was my last practice for the time being. You will still see me around at meets and when I have days off, however it will not be on a regular basis. If anything changes where I can switch shifts, I most definitely will return to Bulldog Swimming.  Coach Bri will be taking over my 9 & 10 group for the remainder of the season as well. These kids mean a lot to me and I didn’t want anyone to feel as though I just up and left.  I have been a part of this program for many years and this has not been easy. I want to wish all the swimmers good luck as they continue to beat their times and improve. Thank you all for your understanding and well wishes!


Coach Mike

Results from last night and East Kentwood

The results from last nights meet are now posted on the website. I am so proud of all the swimmers, they did an amazing job! I also want to thank all the parents that volunteered throughout the meet! Our meet could not have run without you guys!

If you signed up for tomorrows meet, swimmers need to check-in and be on deck by 7:45am. The meet will begin at 9:00am and is scheduled to end around 11:30am. I encourage swimmers to bring a camping chair of some sort to sit in during the meet and help prevent their belongings from getting wet.

I do need a few parents who are willing to help lable ribbons tonight if possible. Also I will be the only coach on deck tomorrow morning so if there is any parent who is willing to help out on deck I would love some help.

Thank you again for all your help this week parents, I really appreciate it!

  • Finally all volunteer forms are due back ASAP. If you know you are not able to volunteer at a meet, but are able to make a donation for our concession stand please be sure to fill out the donation sheet that is located on the table in the pool stands.

B-Meet

B-Meet entries are now on the website. Swimmers will need to be on deck at 7:45am. Please keep in mind Hamilton has a pool deck the size of ours. To help with space with our 40+ swimmers if parents can hold on to coats and anything that's big and bulky that would be a great help! Also if a swimmer brings a chair they will have a greater chance of not getting their stuff wet.

Also if we have a parent that is willing to come on deck and help with marshaling that would be a big help to the coaches, this is one meet we really want to watch. Our 40+ swimmers have kids ranked top 8 in all events!

One last reminder! The end of the year skating party will be Wednesday February 17 at Terry Hall Roller Rink from 4-6pm.
