Heatherfield swimming on the Web

March 29, 2018

Dear Swimmers and Parents, 

Another summer swim season is almost upon us!  Im excited to be back for another season at Heatherfield - my 32nd season overall and 20th year as head coach!      Included in this packet you will find all of the Heatherfield Swim Team registration info and paperwork for 2018.   Once again we will offer a discount on registrations paid on or before May 15.

2017 was another outstanding season with several team milestones.   We once again finished 2nd in A Division (after Hershey), marking the 8th time since we moved up to A Division in 2005 that we accomplished that feat, and for the second straight year we earned 2nd place team scores at both All-Stars (13 teams) and Mid-Caps (36 teams). Other 2017 highlights included 9 new team records, 101 swimmers at All-Stars (team record) and 10 1st place finishes, and 60 swimmers at Mid-Caps and 7 first place finishes there (both team records).  Our 13-14 boys freestyle relay of Jack Dowling, Josh Schmidt, Matthew Mata, and Patrick Hemingway also broke the team, all-star, mid-cap, and Hershey pool records!

What is it that makes Heatherfield such a special team?  The answer is YOU!  The families who have been with the team for many years know that the friendly, family atmosphere is a big reason why they come back every summer.  And each year, as new families join, the team only gets better.  Competitive swimming at Heatherfield is a great way to make new friends, improve technique, endurance, and speed, and build confidence.  We compete at the highest level of the MPSL and push swimmers to improve and maximize their potential without losing sight of another important goal:  having fun!   We strive to ensure that each swimmer, young or "old," expert or beginner, has a positive experience. 

Please visit our website (www.swimheatherfield.org) regularly for more information and updates.  We will once again be using email extensively for team announcements, so please be certain to keep us up to date with your current email address and check your email often.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me anytime.  See the next page for more details and benefits of Heatherfield swimming.

See you at the pool!
