Hello Mudskipper Families!
Mudskippers are the youngest group of swimmers on the team, but also the most important. The Mudskipper program is an opportunity for kids who are not ready for swim competition to develop their swimming skills, and participate in the fun of the neighborhood swim team. The goal of the program is to prepare kids to move up to the competition team by the following season or within the season, if ready. The Mudskipper program also allows us to fuel the future of the Sundance Sailfish team by introducing kids to the sport of swimming in an age-appropriate and comfortable environment.
In order to participate in the Mudskipper program, your child must be potty trained. Additionally, they must have a history of swimming lessons and/or be between the ages of 4 and 6.
Our first practice will be on Tuesday May 30, and we would please ask ALL Mudskippers to come from 10:15-10:45 a.m. for the whole first week. This first week at practice, you can expect a lot of fun getting to know each other games in and out of the water. We will be evaluating each kiddo one on one with a coach. This process will likely take all 4 practices. From those evaluations, we will place each kiddo in a group perfect for them to learn to love swimming this summer. Please stay tuned next weekend for practice times for the remainder of the season via email. Thank you for allowing us to work with your kids, and we welcome all your feedback!
Big and Little Buddies!!!
The Big Fish, Little Fish program is designed to build relationships,camaraderie, and team spirit between the age groups. Being a good Big/ Little Fish is part of being a good teammate.
The Big Fish, Little Fish program is not about elaborate gifts - it is about being a supportive teammate! Both swimmers are encouraged to cheer each other on at practices and meets, but the Big Fish should take the lead and be a mentor, cheerleader, and role model of what makes a good teammate. If you don’t think you can fulfill these expectations, please don’t sign-up to participate in the program.
1. CREATE- Write your Buddy a note, draw a picture, or make a friendship bracelet! Use your talents to inspire your Buddy to swim fast and psych them up for a great meet!
2. CHEER - Watch your Big/Little Fish swim at meets! Be the loudest and most supportive teammate on the pool deck!
3. CONGRATULATE- After your Big/Little Fish race, be there to tell them how great they swam! Know their goals and if they achieved one of them.
****On Friday’s, we will have activities on Fridays at practices for Big/Little Fish’s to make signs and crafts for their Big/Little Fish.
****At meets, we will have spirit activities at the team tents to encourage team and Big/Little Fish camaraderie/spirit.
****Some Fish may be in a School (Big Fish may have a couple little Fish; or a couple Big Fish and a Couple Little Fish will be together). This depends on how many Fish we have in all.
