The Monday Message - Feb 14, 2022


Performance of the Month

   The performance of the month is being revived and there is no better person to receive it than Murray Gardner.

   Murray personifies and embodies the spirit of DAM and Masters Swimming. He cares greatly for DAM and his teammates, and he brightens the day of all those around him. 

   During DAM's last-day push to take the national OHS title, Murray didn't bat an eye when asked to do an Hour Swim instead of his regular practice.

   Murray wasn't asked to set a DAM team record, but he went ahead and did that, too. Congratulations, Murray!

DAM Policy Changes

The DAM Board voted to institute the following changes, effective Tuesday, Feb 15, 2022:

10:00am Practice

Senior lanes 1-3, regular lanes 5-8

Lane Etiquette

  1. When arriving for practice after the 10 minute warmup and announcements are complete ask the coach to place you into an appropriate lane before entering the pool. 
  2. If the swim set has begun, enter the lane and wait in the right corner (facing the wall) until your presence is known by the other swimmers. 
  3. If you wish to swim longer than the 60 minute session, inform the coach on deck before continuing.
  4. Please volunteer to exit the pool if the swimmer lane number exceeds five.
