Congratulations Marlins on a great way to start off the season. The Marlins won 978-550 . We certainly have some things to focus on in the next few weeks, but we also had some really impressive swims. We have a short turn around before our next meet (Tuesday at ACAC). Hopefully, we will see many of you at morning and/or evening practice from now until the end of the season. Don’t forget to let us know if you plan on swimming at the meet by filling out the attend/not attending on our website.
Due to scheduling conflicts at swimRVA and to obtain a more favorable rental rate, RMAL Swim Championships will be held on one day this year. Please plan your day now. The event will take place on Monday, July 23rd. The morning warm up session (10 and under) will start at 9:00 am and the afternoon warm up session (11 and over) will start at 2:30 pm. We know this will be an inconvenience for some, but with the constant threat of bad weather it will be well worth it. We will need numerous parents to volunteer to work the meet, so please plan accordingly.
Welcome back to another exciting season of Granite Marlins swimming. We are looking forward to seeing our returning swimmers and meeting new Marlins. You should be able to find everything you need on this website. This website should be your “one stop shopping” for all Granite Marlins swimming. You will be able to let the coaches know if you are not able to be able to make it to a meet, what events to sign your swimmer up for a meet, sign up to volunteer, and communicate with the coaching staff. We hope you enjoy the site and welcome all suggestions to improve your experience.
