New Beginnings

Dear Bur-Mil Families,
I hope this email finds you all well and excited to gear up for summer swimming! It is with mixed emotions that I share with you that I will not be returning to Bur-Mil as the coach of the Marlins this summer. As you know, I have been working on my PhD full time since the fall of 2012. However, after Ethan was born and funding for grad assistants was cut as a result of the state budget, it became increasingly necessary for me to return to full time employment. I was blessed by an incredible opportunity to return to Guilford County Schools as a Lateral Entry Specialist. The job allows me to combine all of my strengths and passions as I coach new lateral entry teachers, teach in our in house licensure program, and write curriculum for our courses. The only downside of this dream job is that it is a 12 month position. It is heart breaking to me to not return to Bur-Mil this summer, especially after finally reaching the top division in CSA. However, I trust that you all understand the reality of meeting my family's needs and not passing on a wonderful job opportunity. I am grateful for my time with the Marlins and for the role all of you have played in making it such a joyful 7 summers! Bur-Mil and the Marlin family have stolen a piece of my heart and I am honored to have been on this journey to excellence with ALL of you!

Thankfully, my boss at Bur-Mil (Todd Moore) understands my passion, dedication, and love for Bur-Mil. He has allowed me to take the lead in hiring staff for this season and to see that the transition happens smoothly. It is with great pleasure that I announce that the new head coach of the Bur-Mil Marlins is Ali Fourqurean! Ali joined our coaching staff last summer as an assistant coach after having swam with Bur-Mil for several seasons. Ali is finishing up her freshman year at Clemson and brings incredible knowledge and skill to the team. Ali previously coached at Starmount Forest, was a lifeguard for the YMCA, and is a graduate of the Early College at Guilford. I will continue working with Ali to ensure her successful transition into the head coaching position. Please join me in welcoming Ali into this new role!

Registration for the 2015 season will open online tomorrow morning at 8am. Ali and I will be working together to get all of the information/schedules/etc updated on the team website. We are looking to hire up to 3 assistant coaches, so if you know of any prospects, please have them contact me as I will continue leading hiring until all positions are filled.

Thank you for many, many years of fun and joy! I can't imagine my summer this year without all of you! I may not be there day in and day out, but I will certainly still be around as much as I can! Best of luck to you all and GOOOOO Marlins!!!

Best,
Mary Beth

2014 Marlins-Info Meeting Tonight

We will meet at the BurMil clubhouse at 6pm. The meeting will end no later than 7pm so I can get home in time to put Ethan to bed :) We will be doing registration as well as distributing team packets.

We will also have a TYR fitting kit so your swimmer can determine what size swim suit they need for this season. While team suits are optional, and we do have an awesome NEW team suit, competitive suits (preferably in our team colors of green and black) are required. Pictures of the NEW Team suit are attached. This will be our team suit for the next 2 seasons, 2014 and 2015.

Schedule Change

I wanted to touch base about the schedule this week. I apologize to anyone who may not have gotten the message that yesterday's skills testing was postponed. Unfortunately we will have to postpone it again. A drain at the pool has a broken cover and therefore we cannot safely be in pool. Obviously swimmer safety is our top priority and so we will not be able to use the pool until this issue is resolved. The part has been ordered and overnighted to us but will take some time to install.

So, to prevent mass confusion :) we are going to move skills testing to Saturday morning. There will be NO swim team tonight, there will be NO swim team Thursday night. Skills testing will take place on Saturday morning at the pool from 8:30-9:30am. This will be for ALL new swimmers and returning swimmers that were in green or white last season.

I Understand that this is a holiday weekend and some of you may have plans already that prevent you from attending. NO problem! We will have a lane set up before practice on Tuesday to do skills testing for anyone that cannot make it on Saturday. Now, everyone can't just decide to wait until Tuesday because then we will miss practice time doing skills testing. But if you have other plans on Saturday already and can't make skills testing, please come to the pool at 5:30pm on Tuesday for skills testing.

If you have any questions, please email me. I look forward to seeing everyone on Saturday morning :)

Online Registration NOW OPEN!

Good News! You can now register for the 2013 summer swim season. A link to register is posted on our team's website, on the right-side of the homepage. Directly below the registration link is a link to detailed registration instructions. PLEASE follow these directions carefully.

One note, there is a glitch in the system that may not give you a discounted price for registering more than one child from your family. As you know, after one swimmer is registered, subsequent family members registered should be only $90 compared to $100. IF you get to checkout and the total is NOT correct, DO NOT PAY and expect a refund, as that is not possible. Instead, call Bur-Mil park @ 336-641-2020 for assistance and they can make the correct adjustments to pricing BEFORE you complete the transaction.
