HAPPY 2017! Despite the cold weather…again…it’s not too early to start thinking warm weather and Dolphin swim season! I have plenty of information to share with everyone and that will come out soon. However, first I want to briefly discuss an important phase of our team’s success and introduce a time sensitive idea.
