Dear Waves and Blue Dolphins,

We are excited to announce details about our upcoming Late Summer swim season.   Attached to this email is a coaching application for swimmers ages 15 and Older (which is due on or before July 15th).

Practices will be offered Mondays-Thursdays.  8&U 5:30 - 6:15 and 9 & up 6:15 to 7PM: at Hampton Hall (Mondays and Wednesdays) at Byrnwyck (Tuesdays and Thursdays).  You can attend as many or as few practices as you wish.  These practices will have an emphasis on stroke development and improvement. 

Tentative meet dates are Saturday mornings (starting 9 am, lasting ~90 minutes) August 13, August 20, August 27, September 3, and September 10.  We might also have a Championship meet at Marist on September 17 (separate fee of $15). 

The league will offer the following age groups:  8 and Under (includes 6 year olds), 9/10, 11/12, 13 and Over (includes 15+).   8 and Under swimmers must be able to swim the length of the pool unassisted and be ready or close to ready to begin instruction on all four strokes.  Unfortunately, we would not be able to offer practices for the Juniors as the college-age coaches will not be in town.

Team registration will be a 2-part process:

Step one will be to register with the team at

Step two will to be to register with the league.  Information about League registration will be sent out before the first meet—you must be registered with the league to participate on the team.   League fees are a mandatory $20/swimmer.  DO NOT REGISTER WITH THE LEAGUE UNTIL WE GIVE YOU THE NEW FALL LEAGUE LINK!

Team fees are $80 (before August 1) and $100 (after August 1) and cover instruction, 5 dual meet entry fees, and swim ribbons.  Swimmers age 15 and Older pay a flat $50.  You must be a club member of Byrnwyck or swim team member of Hampton Hall to participate on the Fall swim team.

Let us know if you have any questions, thoughts, or concerns.
