2016 Bexley Marlin Update

May 7, 2015

BEXLEY MARLINS 2016 UPDATE:
Its Count down time!!!!! The weather has hit and the season is about to start!!! The Board would like to make the transition for new and veteran families smooth this year. Our goal is to make the swim meets more efficient, communication clear, and to ensure all families know what to expect. In order to be successful, we need everyone’s support and commitment at the meets. Swim meets run about three hours and there is a lot more involved than just watching the events. Hence, 18 timers, runners, officials, concession helpers, and bull pen support are key volunteer positions that will need to be fulfilled. It takes a village!!! We look forward to your support and an exciting year!!
Many of the coaches this year will be veterans from last year and from the Bexley High School Swim team.

Important dates:
April 4th: Online registration will begin
April 7th and 8th: In person registration at the Jeffrey Mansion. 6-8pm
Suit fittings, spirit wear for sale, concession sign up
April 8th: Aquatic Adventures will be there for more suits to try on
July 16th: Jenny Nicol Meet
July 21st and 22nd: Champs
July 23rd: Awards banquet: 4:30pm at the Jeffrey Shelter House
Meets will be released soon

4th of July Float…

July 1, 2014

Fourth Of July Float Info…

We are so excited for another great year in the Bexley 4th of July parade, the kids love it!

A very special thank you to the LaFollette Family for coordinating this years float again!!! For more info, you can contact them mlafollette@columbus.rr.com

Please make note of the following…

1. CHAPERONES NEEDED: We need several more adult folks to help “man” the float during the parade (crowd control, safety spotting, attendance before and after parade). Varsity swimmers, junior coaches, parent board members! ADULTS, let us know ASAP if you intend on participating.

2. CANDY: Each Marlin participant needs to supply 3 bags of candy (North, South, Central).

3. BUBBLES: Feel free to bring BUBBLES!

4. SPIRIT WEAR: Wear team swim suits, team shirts, or vintage gear.

5. NO WATER GUNS OR WATER BALLOONS, please… Water wars are fun but create too much commotion on the float.

6. YOU CAN’T RIDE… We need some energetic, spirited leaders to lead our swimmers in our team chant.

7. VERY IMPORTANT: WHEN YOU’RE ON, YOU’RE ON. For the safety of our float participants and float drivers, please do not expect your swimmer to get ON and OFF the float DURING the parade. If you want your swimmer to make a pit stop or only participate in a portion of the parade, please expect to WALK with him/her during the parade.

8. SIGN IN: All JV swimmers must be signed in by an adult prior to the parade. All JV swimmers must be signed out after the parade. Please have someone account for your swimmer before and after.

9. WHERE TO MEET: Once we receive confirmation of our starting point, we will send out an email. STAY TUNED regarding WHERE and WHEN to meet.

10. END OF PARADE: The parade ends at the Cassingham Complex. Parents be prepared to pick up your children!


Tomorrow’s meet, July 2

July 1, 2014
Hello team!

Please be aware that Chevington is a large team and tomorrow’s meet is set to last until 10:15pm judging from our timeline. Because of the late end time, we understand if you need to remove your swimmer from the free relays that are at the end of the meet. If this is the case, please email Coach Sandy at sliwowski.saundra@gmail.com and Matt Fortney, our head scorer, at mfort07@gmail.com by 10am tomorrow (Wednesday) so they can make relays changes and complete the heat sheets.

Matt will send out an entry report for tomorrow’s meet later tonight, and we will send out heat sheets via email tomorrow afternoon as well as sell them  at the spiritwear table during the meet.

Also please note that of course there will be no swim practice on Friday, July 4th – we look forward to seeing many of you on the float!

See you tomorrow and go Marlins!


Wednesday, June 18 @ Pataskala

June 17, 2014

Please plan for swimmers to arrive at 4:15-4:30 and go straight to their coaches to check in. Pataskala will warm up at 4:30pm, Bexley will warm up at 5pm, and the meet will begin at 5:30pm. Swimmers will receive their names on their back once they check in with the coaches and will then be able to go warm up, but not before. Swimmers will receive their event numbers on their hands at practice Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.

Parking is limited and they will fit as many as possible in the parking lot and grassy area, and there will be people out directing traffic as well.There is a neighborhood just beyond the pool off of Township Rd. that will provide additional parking along the street.
