Friday Is Pre Champs Warm-up, Spirit, and PASTA FEED for CHAMPS Swimmers
Yes, even a different schedule for Friday! Coaches want the swimmers to be resting up for their big event on Saturday, so the workout is about channeling the excitement into the best race day performance of the season! This includes coaches pep talks, a brief swim warm-up, decorating cars for the big event, and a PASTA feed for Swimmers only on the grassy area where tent city is usually set up. Coaches want ALL CHAMPS swimmers at the pool at 4:00pm and home by 6:00pm sharp for early bedtime! Parents, kids would love to be able to paint the windows of your car for the next day...bring a car if you can.
