Happy Birthday Coach Mike!
Did anyone lose their apple watch at The Lakes pool on Monday morning? Coach Jess found it in the parking lot, dead. If you or someone you know is missing their watch please let us know.
First day back in the water! So grateful to be seeing and working with these great people on the team! Excited to be back! #gobluewave #goblue🌊 #bluewaveohana
We count breaths to develop concentration and help us direct our focus where we want it. Just like playing a sport or an instrument, the more we practice, the better we are at concentrating.

Another great Trivia Night last night! Check out the leaderboard. Delongs took top spot again, 2nd week in a row!
Thank you everyone for coming Zooming in and participating! Next week it was requested Sports with an emphasis on swimming!
We just wrapped up a video chat and it sounds like some of the older swimmers are using Pelotons at home. I started riding in early March and it has become a big part of life in the last two months.
I thought it would be fun to get our Blue Wave family in one of the new hashtags. We can encourage each other and send high fives if we are on at the same time. Maybe we’ll get crazy and do a group ride one day.
Join the group and we’ll see where this goes. This is for swimmers and parents. I’ll bet some parents out there could use a high five every now and then.

Hey BLUE WAVE! Do you like to dance or just want to try something new during this time? Well you are in luck! The best dance studio in the area, Dance King Studios, is offering Dance Date Night Gift of a Virtual Lesson with not just one -- but two instructors -- until Friday May 15th. It is their way to help couples connect, have fun, and learn something new during this time.
I started dancing there this year and from day one it has been one of the best decisions I've made! They are absolutely wonderful. I could go and on about my experience, but it is time for you to try them and have your own. You won't regret it!
Thank you everyone who came out to do the trivia night! The Delongs came in 1st, Bruleys 2nd, and Leurs 3rd
Look forward to next week's games!!

Episode 3 of Mindfulness With Coach Mike. Here we learn to use our secret trick to settle the glitter in our lives and delve into a bit of meditation. Hopefully at the end you are seeing more clearly and have settled your own glitter.
Meditation doesn’t get rid of the stress in everyday life just like the glitter doesn’t go away when it settles at the bottom of the tube. Even though medita...
