A MESSAGE FROM THE BOARD

Summer 2009


Dear Swimmers and Parents,

Welcome to the Bridlewood Bridlewaves. If this is your first experience with a
summer swim team, we hope this booklet answers your questions and
provides the information you’ll need to enjoy being a Bridlewave!

We are one of twenty-three summer swim teams in the Greater Prince
William Swim League (PWSL.) PWSL provides each team with ribbons;
determines the meet schedule; sets the time standards; and devises the
scoring system. Our league abides by USA Swimming guidelines to maintain
safe and equitable competition for everyone.

Our team is managed by parent volunteers. Please keep this in mind as you
discover imperfections! The Board of the Bridlewood Bridlewaves determines
coaches’ salaries, sets the registration fee, and selects fundraisers; organizes
equipment, activities, and volunteers; devises and executes various types of
recognition; keeps track of swimming times and records; and provides
communication between coaches, swimmers, and parents.

The Head Coach’s job is to lead and supervise the Bridlewaves competitive
swim program. This year we are pleased to announce Liz Penning as our
Head Coach! Liz has been on our coaching staff in the past and she is very
excited to be returning to the Bridlewaves this year as our head coach. She
is an elementary teacher within Prince William County School System. Liz is a
former year round competitive swimmer and swam for Garfield High School
swim team.

The Bridlewaves Swim Team strives to provide a fun, competitive, and family
centered environment that will inspire every swimmer to challenge their
minds and bodies to do their very best! Our ultimate goal is to instill a love of
swimming that will last a lifetime. We hope this summer helps move your
family toward that goal.

                   Sincerely,


                   The Bridlewood Bridlewaves Board of Directors




                                                                                 2
A MESSAGE FROM THE HEAD COACH
Summer 2009

Hello and Welcome to the Bridlewaves Swim Team!

I am so excited to be your head coach this year and am looking forward to an
awesome swim season! This is my 7th season as a Prince William County Swim Coach
and I could not be prouder to be coaching for the Waves again! The coaching staff
and I are excited to share our knowledge and our passion for this wonderful sport
with you and your swimmers.

The coaching staff shares my belief that our success is not only measured by
winning meets but also by the creation of a safe and positive environment where
each child will learn a sport that can be enjoyed for a lifetime. I will know we had a
successful season when each child can point to his/her personal development as a
swimmer and his/her contribution to the team. We want everyone to have fun and
learn to swim fast!

Each swimmer comes to us with individual skills and needs. I strongly encourage
consistent attendance at practice and meets in addition to excellent effort from
each swimmer. Our daily focus on technique and achievement will build strong
swimming skills, recognize individual needs/talents, and result in a successful season-
for your child and for the team.

The goals of the coaching staff include developing the following skills for each
swimmer:

      -Excellent swimming habits
      -A positive social environment
      -A healthy competitive spirit
      -Leadership and teamwork skills
      -Successful racing strategies
      -A love of swimming

We will work very hard to achieve these goals. Our coaching staff consists of a
Head Coach, two Assistant Coaches, and ten swimmer coaches. The two assistant
coaches are standout swimmers from the summer swim, high school, and state level
and have several years of dedicated coaching experience. The swimmer coaches
are high school swimmers who have generally participated on the Bridlewood team
for several years and have a lot of passion and swim knowledge to contribute to our
team.

If at any time, you have questions or concerns about our program, please contact
a board member or myself. I want to thank you for being a part of our team, and I
look forward to a fun and successful 2009 season!

GO WAVES!!!

WEBSITE
www.eteamz.com/bwaves

Lots of great information is offered on our Website www.eteamz.com/bwaves
including this handbook! Check for updates, calendars, pictures, etc.




                                                                              5
PARENTS MEETING
A meeting for all parents will be held on Wednesday, May 27 at 7:00 p.m. at the
Bridlewood Clubhouse located by the pool. Please try to read through this booklet
beforehand, so we can address questions or concerns at the meeting. All new
swim parents are strongly encouraged to attend.

VOLUNTEERING
This sport requires parents to be participants, not spectators. It takes so many
people to run a swim meet, that there is literally a job for everyone. During
registration, you signed up to be a volunteer at our swim meets. Most swim meet
positions are learned in a few minutes; but others – namely Officials - require more
training. Attendance at clinics, then plenty of on-the-job training will prepare you
for those jobs. We encourage you to attend one of the free training clinics. Even if
you ultimately decide that it’s not for you, at least you’ll gain insight about the
positions.


COMMUNICATION
If after reading this booklet, you still have questions, please talk to the Head Coach
Liz Penning or a Board Member. Someone is usually at practice, or you can call one
at home. Please don’t approach the coaches during swim practice. The time a
coach spends holding a conversation with a parent during practice is time taken
away from the swimmers. If you need to speak directly to a coach, let a Board
member know so that an appropriate time can be set up or send an email to Head
Coach Liz Penning (coachlizp@hotmail.com).

NEWSLETTER
The Bridlewaves publish a newsletter at least two or three times a year which is
mailed out to the team and the community. It includes some general information
and articles about the team. You will also find the newsletters on our website.
Please contact Pat Brizzi with any suggestions and/or articles.

MEET ATTENDANCE
Entries for the swim meets are completed each week by Wednesday evening.
Meet attendance is important, but if a swimmer needs to miss one, please notify the
Head Coach and your lane coach by Monday before that meet. You will be given
a vacation form at registration. This form should be filled out and returned to the
Team Manager by May 31st. Coaches assume that every swimmer will be
swimming in every meet. Meet entries for swimmers who won’t be at the meet can
take a place away from another swimmer who will be there. Swimmers may also be
entered on a relay team that will have to be changed or scratched if the swimmer
misses a meet without notifying the appropriate person.


SPIRIT WEAR
A competitive swim team suit and swim cap are provided to each team member
and is included in the registration fee. Extra team apparel such as t-shirts, jackets
and matching pants, etc. are available for purchase but are not required. More
information will be provided during registration and at the parent’s meeting. You
can order online at http://bridlewoodwaves.promoshop.com/.


                                                                                        6
SWIM PRACTICE
LOCATION
All practices will be held at the Bridlewood Pool, organized by groups. (See
Practice Schedule below) On the first day of practice, swimmers should report to
the pool area a little early to pick up their suit and cap.

AGE
The age of each child on June 1st of each swim season determines the age and
age group in which they will swim throughout the season, regardless of a summer
birthday.

BEHAVIOR
As a Bridlewood Bridlewaves Swim Team member, the following behavior won’t be
tolerated:

      Pushing others into the pool
      Running on deck, pushing or hitting
      Towel snapping
      Diving (unless directed by a coach)
      Excessive splashing
      Dunking or holding someone under water
      Pulling on a swimmer’s body during swim
      Refusing to allow a swimmer to pass
      Foul language
      Unsportsmanlike behavior

   The following behavior is encouraged:
    Positive attitude
    Hard work
    Helping others
    Good sportsmanship
    Cheering during races
    Making new friends




                                                                                   7
PRACTICE SCHEDULE
This year our team will begin weekday practices on Tuesday May 26th and continue
through July 25th. Before schools break for summer, practices are held only in the
evenings. After school lets out, we switch to morning and evening practices. The
team switches to a different schedule starting on Monday, June 22. Swimmers will
be assigned a practice group by the coaching staff after the first week of practice.

       MAY 26- JUNE 19

       M-F
       7:00-7:40 pm                 8 and unders

       8:25-9:15 pm                 12 and ups

       Swimmer breakdown in groups is dependent on the number of swimmers we
       get for each age group.

       7:40-8:25 pm       9-11s
       8:25-9:15 pm       12 and up

CANCELLED PRACTICE
Many times, practice will start, then have to be cancelled for a variety of reasons
including thunder and lightning, water contamination, or issues outside the control
of the team. Swimmers who attend practice without an adult should know what to
do if practice is suddenly called off. Please discuss this possibility with your swimmer
and devise a plan. There is a telephone in the guard house for swimmers to call
parents or a neighbor. A Bridlewave Coach or Board Member will stay with any
swimmer who is unable to get a ride. It is the swimmer’s responsibility, however, to
approach the Coach or Board Member for assistance. A swimmer who is not
capable of calling the appropriate person, or not able to seek assistance, should
not be left at practice without an adult.

MISSING PRACTICE
It is not necessary to notify coaches if you will miss practice. Especially during the
first few weeks of evening practice, we understand that other sports and end of the
year activities will overlap. If, however, you’ll miss several practices in a row due to
other commitments, please mention this to the Coaches. If you choose to drop off
the team, please notify the Head Coach.

                                                                                                                     8
ATTENDANCE BOOK
The attendance book is the Coaches guide for which swimmers have been
attending practices. Each practice, the attendance book will be located at the life
guard area. Please make sure that your swimmer signs the attendance book every
practice.

SUPERVISION
Only registered swimmers are allowed into the pool during swim team practice.
Our coaches are responsible for coaching swimming. They can’t chase swimmers
who wander off, nor force older swimmers to participate in practice. If you are
concerned about whether your child will remain with the coach or follow
instructions, then an adult should accompany that child to practice. During meets,
an adult must accompany swimmers who are not yet babysitting age.

SPECTATING AT PRACTICE
Everyone is welcome to watch swim practice, but please resist the temptation to
coach and encourage your child while he/she is practicing. This creates a
distraction for everyone. For young children, it is recommended that parents do not
sit close to their child’s practice lanes.

LEAVING
Please check your area before leaving the pool. Chairs, lounges, tables, etc. must
be returned to the way they were found. Remove all personal belongings and
trash. During morning practices, all swimmers and families must leave the pool deck
area promptly so the lifeguards can prepare the facility for open swimming.

WEATHER
If the weather is questionable, and you wonder if there will be swim practice, check
the Bridlewaves website www.eteamz.com/bwaves. If time permits, we will try to
send out an e-mail as well. Please keep in mind that summer storms move very
quickly and unless there is lightening in the immediate area, we will still have
practice.

SWIM SEASON
Our swim season consists of one time trial, six dual or tri-meets, and the Divisional
Championship meet. The time trials and meets are open to everyone on the team.
Championships are limited to swimmers who competed in at least two meets (not
time trials) and obtain a legal time in at least one individual event during the current
season. Time trials and swim meets are held each Saturday starting mid-June
through the last weekend in July. The season schedule for this year is as follows:

      June 6        Home Time Trials   @ Bridlewood
      June 13       Home Dual Meet: Sudley @ Bridlewood
      June 20       Away Dual Meet: Bridlewood vs. Victory Lakes
      June 27       Home Dual Meet: Dominion Valley @ Bridlewood
      July 4        Home Dual Meet: FIRECRACKER RELAY @ Bridlewood
      July 11       Home Dual Meet: Virginia Oaks vs. Bridlewood
      July 18       Away Dual Meet: Bridlewood @ Wellington
      July 25       Away Divisional Championship Meet:
                       Bridlewood, Wellington and Montclair @ Wellington
                                                                                       9
TIME TRIALS
Everyone is encouraged to attend time trials. Unlike meets, where swimmers can
only be entered for a maximum of three individual events, at time trials (if time
permits) a swimmer will swim all five individual events (freestyle, backstroke,
breaststroke, butterfly, and individual medley.) These times will be used by coaches
for entering swimmers in individual and relay events at meets. These times will also
serve as a reference for time improvement awards.

Since time trials are run very much like a real meet, it’s a great chance to
warm up for the season. Place ribbons are not awarded at time trials, but
swimmers will learn about reporting to the Clerk of Course and some basic
meet rules. Parents can try being a timer or recorder. Everyone can practice
getting ready for a real meet.

SWIM MEETS
DETAILS
The events in which each swimmer is entered will be determined by the coaches.
Event information will be sent out to the families late Thursday evenings before each
meet. Each swimmer is limited to a maximum of three individual events. The
weekly e-mail will provide details of warm-up and start times. Directions can be
found in the back of this handbook and on the website.

RELAYS
Relays are a team event, determined by the coaches. Please check the relay
board the morning of each meet to see if you’ve been selected for a medley
and/or freestyle relay. The “A”, “B”, & “C” relay teams will be determined by the
fastest possible combination of swimmers. As swimmers improve their times, the
relay teams may change.

SWIM-OFFS
Swim-offs may be held during the Tuesday practice prior to each swim meet for
swimmers that receive a phone call. Swim-offs may be available when two or more
swimmers have times within .5 second of each other. A swimmer may challenge
another swimmer for a position on a relay team by notifying the Coaches before or
during Wednesday’s practice. A swimmer who misses a Wednesday swim-off,
without prior approval from the Head Coach, will forfeit their relay position.

EVENT SCHEDULE
The event schedule will be the same each week and is as follows:

      FREESTYLE RELAYS                   15 -18 ONLY
      MEDLEY RELAYS                      8 & UNDER, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14, 15-18

      FREESTYLE RELAYS                   8 & UNDER, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14


                                                                                    10
WHAT TO BRING
Getting ready for a swim meet can feel like you’re packing for a week of camping.
Many seasoned summer swimmers bring a tent, tarp, or large umbrella so they can
get out of the sun or just to mark their spot. High on the recommended “bring” list is
your warm-up suit to pull on after warm-ups. Since there is a lot of “down time”
between events, cards, games, and toys help kids pass the time. Write your name
on absolutely everything you bring! The checklist below might help you pack:

       Swim suit
       Cap
       Goggles
       Towels (3 or more per swimmer)
       Warm-up suit
       T-shirt & shorts
       Baby powder (sprinkle into cap to prevent sticking)
       Ink pen (put event numbers on swimmer’s hand)
       $ for concessions & psych sheets
       Cards, games, toys, etc. (waterproof things are best)
       Tent, tarp, umbrella, etc.
       Sleeping bag or blanket
       Lawn chairs
       Sunblock

Concessions are available at each meet and serve as a major part of each team’s
fundraising. Selections include donuts, bagels, fresh fruit, hot dogs and hamburgers
(that are available at about 8 AM!), beverages of all kinds, candy, chips, etc.

WHAT TO EXPECT
If you’ve never attended a swim meet before, here are a few things you can
expect:

    - tents, towels, and kids everywhere!
    - chilly mornings
    - extremely limited viewing space (except for deck volunteers)
    - boredom between your kid’s events if you don’t volunteer for a shift (or two!)
      of timing, recording, working concessions, etc.
    - new friends and a great time if you get involved with the team!

Plan to arrive 15 minutes before warm-ups start. This way you can stake your tent,
find your goggles, and report to the Coaches when the announcer calls for warm-
ups. Please make sure that ALL swimmers check-in with the Team Manager upon
arrival!

Warm-ups
Each team gets a twenty-minute warm-up. The home team always warms up first.
For home meets, that means you’ll need to arrive at Bridlewood around 6:00 AM.
For newcomers, warm-ups resemble organized chaos. Our entire team warms up all
at once, so it’s very crowded on the pool deck! A swimmer’s warm up lane may be
different than the regular practice lane, so check in with the Coaches. The Team
gathers around the Coaches after warm-ups to cheer and get psyched up for the
meet.

                                                                                     11
THE MEET STARTS
Meets usually start at 7:00 AM and finish around 12:00 PM. After both teams have
warmed up, we sing the National Anthem and then the meet should begin. Relays
are first. You can determine if you’re on a relay by checking the relay board. If
you’re swimming in a relay, report to your Coach immediately after warm-ups.

CLERK OF COURSE
When the announcer calls your event number over the loudspeaker, you should
immediately report to the “Clerk of Course.” This is the person who gets the
swimmers in order for their event. PARENTS: It’s important to allow your child to
remain at the Clerk of Course staging area alone. (Volunteer positions are
available!) Your swimmer will have excellent supervision and direction from parent
volunteers who help at Clerk of Course.

PSYCH SHEETS
During home meets and most away meets “Psych Sheets” will be on sale at the
concession stand. They will include the individual events, the swimmers entered in
each event, and their fastest time. Swimmers will be listed fastest to slowest using
their best time for each event. Swimmers who have never competed in an event
before will be listed after swimmers with times. The notation NT for “no time” will be
typed next to their names.

SPECTATING
When it’s time for your child to swim their individual race, you may stand around the
pool deck. From here you may cheer the swimmers on. At the completion of the
race, please move away from the deck area, so that the next swimmers’ friends
and family can watch their race.

WHAT’S MY TIME?
Swimmers learn to ask the recorder for their (unofficial) time as soon as they get out
of the pool at the end of a race. The official event results (which include the
swimmers’ names, their times, and event placing) are usually posted on the pool
fence behind the starting end of the pool about an hour after completion of the
event. All event results are computerized and retained for each swimmer all
season.

DISQUALIFICATION (DQ)
Our league complies with USA Swimming rules - the same rules used at all National
meets like the Olympic Time Trials. To ensure fair competition for all swimmers, these
rules are equally applied to all swimmers, regardless of age or experience. During
competition, if a swimmer fails to comply with the stroke and turn rules, a Stroke &
Turn Judge (dressed in white shirts and blue shorts) will raise their hand, write up a
disqualification (DQ) slip, and present it to the referee for approval. A swimmer is
not disqualified until the referee accepts the report. Almost all swimmers in all age
groups have been DQ’d at some time. This should be viewed as a learning
experience and not a failure. Swimmers should discuss the DQ with their Coach
after the race, and together they will formulate a plan to correct the mistake.

WORKING AT SWIM MEETS

                                                                                     12
Swim meets are unique to youth sports. The large number of people needed to run
the meets keeps most parents so busy, there’s no time for poor sportsmanship.
Parent workers ensure that our children participate in swim meets that are: safe and
organized (set-up and clerk of course), timed (timers and recorders), fair (officials,
runners, scorers, and computer), fun (ribbons & concessions), and clean (clean-up).
The meet jobs that aren’t right next to the action are flexible enough for you to take
a break and watch your child swim.

All jobs are important! If you are not able to work as scheduled, try to find a
replacement. If you’re unable to find a substitute, please notify the Volunteer
Coordinator, Susan Ossenfort, of that position as soon as possible.

POOL AND GROUNDS CLEAN UP
It is not the Bridlewood HOA’s job to clean up after us; it’s ours! After each meet,
our team is responsible for “putting the pool back together again.” This means
removing lane lines and backstroke flags; returning tables, chairs, and lounges to
their original spots; disassembling temporary pavillions, as well as picking up and
removing all trash and lost & found items. If everybody cleans up around their area
and helps move just a few chairs, the job will get done in minutes. When we visit
another pool for a swim meet, please be sure to leave the area the way you found
it. Pick up all the trash in your area, whether you made it or not. Thank you in
advance for helping with cleanup.

DIVISIONAL MEET
To qualify for the Divisional meet, a swimmer must participate in at least two dual
meets (not time trials) during the current swim season. At Divisionals, each swimmer
is restricted to entering those events in which a legal time was recorded at a meet
during the season. For example, if a swimmer never competed in the breaststroke
event at a meet, that swimmer is not eligible to swim breaststroke at Divisionals. If a
swimmer entered the breaststroke event weekly but always DQ’d (disqualified)
because of illegal technique, that swimmer is not eligible to swim breaststroke at
Divisionals.

Larger divisional ribbons are awarded for 24 places in each event. League Time
Improvement Ribbons will be awarded for any time improvement over 1 second.
Special league-wide ribbons will also be awarded for the 12 fastest times recorded
(for each event from every divisional meet) in the league during Divisionals.

When hundreds of swimmers and their families converge at one pool for the
Divisional Championship meet, parking, camping, and observing space is at a
premium. We appreciate everyone’s cooperation with the following rules for the
Divisional Championship meet. Years of experience have proven them necessary
to run a safe, fair, and timely meet.

       1.   The competition part of the pool deck will be limited to a) swimmers
            called to the Clerk of Course, b) current shift volunteers, and c)
            spectators whose children are about to swim an individual event.
            Everyone else must stay outside of the barriers. To get the best view of
            the swimming, volunteer for a deck job! Parents who have worked at
            earlier meets will get priority when selecting volunteers for the Divisional
            Championship meet.

                                                                                           13
       2.   Each team will be assigned a specific area for “camping.” Staying
            together as a team not only fosters team unity, but makes it easier for
            coaches to locate swimmers.

CLINICS FOR OFFICIALS & SCORERS
Officials consist of Stroke & Turn Judges, Referees, Starters, and Clerks of the Course.
It doesn’t matter how much or little you know about swimming. If you’d like to learn
about these jobs, attend one of the upcoming Officials’ Clinics. Then you can
decide afterwards if you’d like to train for it. No appointments are necessary; just
show up! Contact our Head Official, Scott Deibler for further information.

PRINCE WILLIAM SWIM LEAGUE
The Prince William Swim League (PWSL) was founded in 1974 to sponsor swimming in
and among the communities in Prince William County. All PWSL policies and
procedures focus on providing a safe, fun, fair, and athletically challenging
program for all swimmers while developing the principles of good sportsmanship,
advanced swimming skills, and teamwork.

Teams are grouped in divisions based on factors such as team size (number of
swimmers), team depth (distribution of swimmers across the age ranges), and the
combined ranking of swimmers’ times from each Divisional meet. The alignment of
teams is done with the intent of maximizing competitiveness within the league.

The divisions and teams making up the PWSL for the 2009 season are:
      BLUE DIVISION               RED DIVISION             WHITE DIVISION           YELLOW DIVISION

Meet Information & Scoring
Overview: PWSL swim meets are comprised of 67 events: 19 relays and 48 individual
events. Swimmers compete in one of the following age groups: 8 & under, 9-10, 11-
12, 13-14, and 15-18, as determined by their age as of June 1. Each swimmer may
compete in three individual events and two relays. Swimmers earn points for their
teams by competing in relay events and by being one of the six fastest finishers on
their team in individual events.

Scoring: PWSL divisional meet scoring is identical to scoring for regular season
meets. The specific scoring scenario is based on the number of teams competing at
the divisional meet. A two-team divisional meet and regular season dual meets use
dual meet scoring. A three team divisional meet uses tri meet scoring, and a four
team divisional meet uses quad meet scoring. See the following pages for specific
scoring information. The team with the most points wins the meet.

Divisional Meet Ribbons: Regardless of the number of teams competing at a
divisional meet, ribbons are awarded to the top twenty-four finishers based on time
in each individual event and the top four relay teams in each relay event. Ribbons
are also awarded for the top twelve six year old (or younger), in Free and Back
events, based on time.

Cyber Meet Ribbons: After all divisional meets are completed, league-wide results
will be combined and the overall top twenty-four swimmers in each individual event
will be awarded special recognition ribbons.

To qualify for the Divisional meet, a swimmer MUST participate in at least two dual
meets during the current swim season. Additionally, each swimmer is restricted to
                                                                                              16
entering those events in which a legal time was recorded at a meet during the
season.
All other meet rules apply.

DUAL MEET SCORING

Overview: PWSL dual meets are comprised of 67 events: 19 relays and 48 individual events.
Swimmers earn points for their teams by competing in relay events and by being one of the
six fastest finishers on their team in individual events. The team with the most points wins the
meet.

Relay Event Scoring: First place in relay events is won by                    Relay
the fastest legal swim, the opponent takes Second Place by                    Team
completion of a legal swim. The same team cannot score                Place           Points
points for both First and Second Places. Ribbons are awarded            1             47
