​Springwood Swim Buddies

A core part of our team spirit comes from our long standing tradition of Big/Little Buddies! Every swimmer who participates is assigned a buddy. Buddies are asked to give a small token of encouragement and friendship throughout the season. Most families do some form of encouragement at every meet, but this is not required. It can be a handmade sign, a card and balloon, a healthy snack, a favorite candy… any small trinket! On Buddy Night, at the season's end, it is customary to celebrate with one final larger gift!

Ideas for buddies:

  • "favorites" from the form (candy, chips, protein bar, drink)
  • Green nail polish
  • Playing cards, small game
  • Pad of paper, markers, pens or crayons
  • Playdough
  • Small craft
  • Hair clips
  • Matchbox cars
  • Ball
  • Stuffed animal; dolphin
  • Book
  • Swim cap
  • Water bottles
  • Spray bottles
  • Quarters for Meet snacks
  • Lip gloss
  • Anything green!
  • $5 Starbucks or Jamba Juice cards
