Greetings Riptide,

After an extended spring break my swimming blog is back Online! I hope you missed me. The first thing I want to talk about is the website… there have been a lot of changes like paying dues online and most recently, signing up for the meets online. It can get confusing and I admit that we coaches are trying lots of new methods too. Did you know that we are now taking attendance electronically? We have always tracked your yardage and attendance, but now we are putting it into our database with phones, ipods, and ipads. Pretty cool right? Anyway, there are lots of new technologies we are putting in place and the only way to get used to it all is to use it. So I ask you as I have asked you in the past, go to our website as much as you can. Check out the different features and let us know what you think.

One more technology item. The coaches are putting a lot of information about each swimmer into our database and will be testing more detailed swimmer meet performance info at the next few swim meets. If you want to access that information “there is an App for that.” Team Unify has a Parents Application you can put on your smartphone or tablet to see the info we have tracked for each swimmer. If you would like to know more about it or information about how to download the app and log in, come see me on deck!

Go Riptide!
