Many Thanks from the Dolphins Swim Team

September 11th, 2012 No Comments

Over the summer the Dolphins Swim Team often utilized LLA pools for their practices and swim meets.  So many children benefited from these events and there was an overwhelming from response from appreciative families. The following notes were received by the Board of Directors and we felt that residents should be aware these kind words.

“Our family recently moved to New Market from Ontario Canada.  Our two daughters ages seven and ten felt very lost and scared about making such a huge move.  I also had issues and missed my friends and family.  I registered both girls for the Dolphin’s swim team and it was the best decision that I could have made!  Everyday I watched the girls make friends and feel part of the team.  I just can’t say enough for the program-what an amazing organization!  We would like to thank the Summerfield community for welcoming this swim program.  My family has grown from the experience and appreciate the opportunity to be part of the Dolphin’s! Thanks Again – Janis”

“I wanted to take a minute to thank you for allowing the Dolphins swim team to use the Summerfield Pool for both team practices, and this year, home swim meets as well.  This was my family’s 2nd season swimming with the Dolphins.  It has been a wonderful experience for my daughters, Rachel and Abby, who were both on the Dolphins team this year. They have both greatly improved as swimmers and have really enjoyed being a part of their community swim team.  The Summerfield Pool proved to be a wonderful venue for several home meets, including the Divisional meet last weekend.  I really hope the LLA continues to allow this wonderful program to take place at one of the community’s beautiful swim facilities. Thank you – Brian and Cindy”

“Thank you so much for allowing the Linganore Dolphins to use our Summerfield pool for practices and meets this season.  This was my 6-year-old son’s first year swimming and the big smile he had on his face after finishing a race was priceless.  I realize that having meets at the pool can be an inconvenience for Summerfield residents.  I just want to let you know that I, as a Lake Linganore resident and parent, appreciate the support the board has given our team. – David”

“A quick note of thanks to members of the LLA Board for supporting yet another successful summer swim season with the Linganore Dolphins. I understand the decision this year was with mixed feelings and I commend you for making the right choice for the LLA families. My children have participated with the Dolphins Swim team for 11 years, six of which I have been on the board. I cannot begin to tell you how much it has made a difference in who they are today. Last year my oldest returned from his first year in college wanting nothing more than to swim one last season before aging out of the FCSSL. From the love of the sport, to the love of the people – from the leadership role as a young swimmer to being employed as an assistant coach – from the determination and team spirit- to the drive to be a better person and athlete. What more could a parent want for their children!  – Barb”

*There were many more notes of appreciation, however we could not accommodate them all.  To protect privacy, last names were omitted.
