Martin's Landing Dolphins

Weekly Flipper 5

Dolphin Families,

We had another great week of practice and another great win at our 3rd meet against CCOR!  


The lake pool is closed due to a leak in the water line.  Martin's Landing had to turn the water line off to the building so the bathrooms at the pool are not functioning and the pool cannot be open without a bathroom.  So Dolphin practice will be at the River Club on Monday.  Same times as usual.  

We will let you know practice location for the rest of the week when we know more.  

Just in case someone needs the address for the River Club, it is below:

1221 Riverside Road

Roswell, GA 30076 

Swimmers of the Week 

As returning families know, the coaches pick one boy and one girl swimmer on the team to be our "Swimmer of the Week."  These swimmers are chosen based on their practice attendance and effort, their positive attitudes, and meet performance.  Congrats to this week’s swimmers!!

Autumn Dalberg and Calvin Cherfoli

Championship Meet at Georgia Tech

The Championship meet which is held at Georgia Tech at the end of each summer league season is coming up on Friday June 29th from 3:00 - 6:30pm This is a fun meet where swimmers can swim in the 1996 Olympic pool and race swimmers from all over the metropolitan Atlanta area.  ALL swimmers can come and we encourage as many to come as possible!  If your swimmer would like to attend, a fee of $20 per swimmer and completion of the form attached to this email is required by NOON on THURSDAY, JUNE 21st.  Cash or Check are accepted (Check made out to Martins Landing Dolphins).

Every swimmer will be able to swim two individual events of their choice (please write them on the form) and potentially two relays if there are enough swimmers entered in the age group.  If you do not write your swimmers choice of events on the form, Coach Kristen will choose for you.  The Championship form is attached. 

Although we are permitting some swimmers to come with designated adults, please remember that we need parent volunteers at the Championship Meet so we still need as many adults as possible to come to the meet.

Swim Meet Posters

Since it is a home meet, we also encourage swimmers to make posters.  If they do, we will display them around the pool and they will receive an extra piece of "fish food" on Friday.  

I look forward to another great week!  Go Dolphins!!!!
