Advisory Board Elections
CALM’s Advisory Board will seek new volunteers to represent the team as elections are coming soon. More info from Steve soon. Questions? Email Steve Washburn <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Welcome back to our CALM swimmers who’ve been away all Summer on vacation. Many students with the Cal Swim Club will return to the program this Fall. Look for more information from the staff re: trial dates for new swimmers, in order to prepare in advance!
Reminder GB Front Door
A quick reminder to all our morning swimmers – please keep the front entrance door to GB closed during non-regular business hours. Staff requests that CALM swimmers close the door if the doors appear to be open. CALM swimmers may enter the pool deck from the back gate up the steps by the pool.
Reminder Step Up For Kate Coleman
Kate, a team member since the 1980’s and swimmer extraordinaire, is having knee replacement surgery tomorrow and could really use our support during her recovery. CALM friends of Kate (as well as friends who are not team members) willing to step up may sign-up here
Please note the following requests from Kate: “Please don’t volunteer if you don’t know me. Also, I am hard of hearing and will need friends on the phone or in-person to speak slowly and clearly, so if I keep saying “what”, I can’t help it and please try again”.
Note that Kate has a round-the-clock helper this week immediately following her surgery (August 6-11) and so is particularly hoping to get some help beginning the week of August 12 and then through the ﬁrst week of September.
CALM Coaching Staﬀ
Our awesome coaching staﬀ will grow once again. Please look forward to familiar faces and new staﬀ at your workouts this Fall: Gaku, Kendall, Tryn, Ryan, Shaun, Gianna, Matthew, Chenoa
Reminder CALM Backpack
