Burton Hollow Families,
I am pleased to announce that Burton Hollow Swim Club will resume swim team practices starting June 22! The sessions will run from Monday, June 22, through Friday, August
14. 8 weeks. Sessions are limited to 25 swimmers to stay within the USA and Michigan Swimming guidelines for swim team practices.
For those families who are new to Burton Hollow and are not familiar with the Swim Team, this program is for established swimmers. This is not a learn to swim program. (Details
on swim lessons will be coming out in the next week or so.)
The swimmer needs to be able to swim the length of the pool (25M) without assistance. There is no minimum age limit as we have swimmers as young as 5 years old, but they need to be
experienced swimmers as the coaches are not typically in the pool with the kids.
Speaking of Coaches. Coach Rachel and Coach Shannon will be leading these sessions this summer. A third coach may be added to assist Rachel and Shannon. More to come on
5-Day a Week Session:
Monday through Friday from 8am-9am
3-Day a Week Session
Monday, Wednesday, Friday from 9am-10am
If there is enough demand, we may be able to open a 3rd session that would run Tuesday, Thursday from 9-10am and either Wednesday or Friday from 10-11am.
I know that all our swimmers, families, and coaches were disappointed with the cancellation of the SISL swim season and losing the opportunity to compete against other clubs at swim
meets. So, I would like to ask all BHSC Swim Team families to hold the date of Saturday, July 25 from 8am-2pm. This would have been the date for League Meet. On this date, we
plan to hold an intrasquad swim meet for ALL Dolphin swimmers, whether or not they participate in this year's summer program. After the meet, we will have a pizza party or some other gathering
to socialize and honor our swimmers who will be graduating this year. Please send me an email if your swimmer is graduating this year.
I understand that the cost of this program is a little higher than normal for the swim team. BHSC is only covering costs with this program. Due to the 25 swimmer limit, we are only
able to accommodate about half of the swimmers we would normally have in the program and we are running this for 2 weeks beyond the normal end of the season. I hope you understand.
