Big Swimmer/Little Swimmer

Big Swimmer Little Swimmer is a Marlins tradition where our older swimmers will get paired up with some younger Marlins on the team. Together, older swimmers and younger swimmers can team up to cheer for one another, make sure no one misses a race and participate in other fun activities every week! 

If this is something your swimmer would be interested in, there will be a sign-up come the start of the season. Be on the lookout!  

In addition, a few things to keep in mind:

  • The program is about support fellow swimmers and making new friends. While we ask that there be no gifts, swimmers can make something for one another such as a card, or a craft. 
  • Each week there will be an activity for the swimmers to do at the meet with one another.  One week it may be to make a sign for their partner swimmer.  The next it might be to develop a handshake with their partner swimmer.  More details to come closer to the start of the season.  
  • We know that swimmers may not be able to attend every meet, and that's okay.  If possible, please try to make sure the swimmer who is attending the meet does not feel forgotten, or left out.  For the swimmer missing the meet, they can make a card or craft to give to a fellow teammate who will be in attendance.  That teammate can take that to the assigned swimmer who will be attending the meet.  Or, if the activity is to develop a secret handshake at the meet, have a fellow teammate work with the swimmer at the meet on one.
