Coaching and Scheduling for the Winter/Spring

Hi GMST community,

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a happy and restful holiday season with your loved ones.

Swim team returns from its fall hiatus on Tuesday! As our registrar mentioned in her message yesterday, returning families can drop off forms at the front desk of the pool. In-person registration will be on Tuesday and Thursday from 4:15pm-6pm in the observation area of the pool. New families should register then, as well as any returning families who want to register in person. The combined Winter/Spring session runs from January 5th to May 15th. We will have a separate registration on March 22 for those families who want to register for the Spring session only. The fee for 1/2 session is $75. The Spring session starts on April 5th, following the PGCPS spring break.

Longtime Barracuda Kevin Pham is our Interim Head Coach. He’s worked hard as an age group coach over the years, and he’ll be a great leader in the coming months. Coaching with him are Emma Grier, Kristine Pham, Kobbe Stafford, Joon Jang, and Diane Boushehri. Diane is new to our team. She’s a Greenbelt resident, a triathlete, and a swimmer with club and high-school experience.  In recent years she’s volunteered with Greenbelt baseball, and she’s excited to now work with us as a coach. The team is fortunate to have her swim knowledge and enthusiasm.
