Communications

The GBSA coaching staff uses several methods to communicate with swimmers and their families.

GBSA GOOGLE GROUP:  

 

Here at GBSA, we're always working to make communication better/easier. With that in mind, we've created a google group to help us communicate more accurately and effectively. To receive notices, updates, etc. via e-mail, all you have to do is subscribe to the group by clicking subscribe now below.  

Then, when we send such emails, we use one e-mail address and all e-mail list subscribers receive the e-mail. Families may add more than one e-mail address to the list if desired. Consider adding your work e-mail address to be sure you get timely information wherever you are.

 

If you cannot receive team e-mails because of a spam filter, you may need to add the team’s e-mail address to your list of allowed sources, or follow your service provider’s tutorial (such as Verizon) for instructions on how to override your spam filter.

REMIND APP: 

GBSA also utilizes the Remind App on your smartphone to communicate any last minute changes or updates.  Please join the "class" @swimgbs to start receiving these notifications.

THE BOARD:

 

The big blue team board is located in the lobby just outside the main pool entrance at CCBC Catonsville. On it you’ll find:

 

  • meet notices, entries, and results

  • time standards for USA swimming and local meets

  • news items of interest from MD Swimming, USA Swimming, and swim magazines

THE BOX: 

All passing of paperwork and awards happens through “the box.” Actually there are five boxes which contain a folder for each family, one for Coach Pat, and one for meet entry forms. Completed meet forms should be placed in the MEET ENTRY folder with a check attached, made out to GBSA, for all meets.

 

The boxes are placed in the lobby before practice begins.
