8/12/20 Update from Coach Tuttle:

Hello Swim and Dive Families and Athletes,

 

I hope summer has been safe, healthy, and restful for each of you. Attached you will find a survey that I am asking for you to complete ASAP.

 

The survey will allow for us to better plan for our upcoming season amid the challenges of COVID-19. 

Individual responses will remain private so please respond honestly.

 

The survey is being sent to both athletes and parents, but there is only a need for one survey per athlete to be completed. Please do not complete multiple surveys. 

 

If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to reach out.

7/30/2020 UPDATE FROM BOOSTER CLUB:

Hello BKGSD Families,

 

Hope everyone is doing well and having a safe and healthy summer. The situation with fall sports is constantly evolving. Although we might not be able to do all the things we have done in the past due to the pandemic, we are still planning for a full season. The CIAC is making a decision today on fall sports and when we receive more information we will let families know. It is very important that parents and students are receiving emails from captains and the booster club. If you are not getting emails, please let the booster club or captains know. We still have our team website girlsbksd.com where we post updated information, a private facebook group SHS Girls Swim and Dive Booster Club, and captains utilize group texts, the Remind app and have a team Instagram account, @bkgsd. 

 

***Please make sure that all students have registered for the fall season using FamilyID. You will not be able to practice without an updated physical.***

Coach Tuttle email update to team:

Hello Southington Swim and Dive Family,

I hope this email finds each of you well and healthy. It goes without saying that the past fews months have forced us to stray from our normal routines and required us to adapt to very unique challenges. Normally, we would be having this conversation in person, and we would go over schedule and expectations for our program. This email will have to suffice.

The CIAC has released it's proposed phases of opening and if all goes according to plan we will start the Fall Season on time and without restriction. Therefore, that is what we will prepare for. While there is of course the possibility that conditions can change and things will not go according to plan, we will adapt and abide by new regulations as they are released. That being said, staying in touch and remaining in communication will be vital to staying in the know and being prepared. So while I want for you to enjoy your summers and get off the phones as much as possible, you do need to check emails and modes of communication so as to not miss anything.

Here's what you can do now:

Register for the team on familyID (directions attached)

Make sure your physicals are renewed and good for the season (physical expiration dates will NOT be extended)

Review our team schedule and expectations (attached)

Order/purchase the minimum required equipment which now includes kickboards and pull buoys

Reach out if you have any questions or concerns.

Best,

Coach Tuttle
