WHAT'S MY TEAM and WHAT DO WE DO???
Your TEAM is comprised of swimmers from different pools and different groups. It's a fun to way to GET CRAZY and meet OTHER swimmers. TEAMS will do a one lap PARADE around the pools in the middle of the Swim-A-Thon to show off their spirit. You WIN with a combo of best spirit, how your relays place, and how many on your team attend the Swim-A-Thon event!

WHAT IS THE TEAM COMPETITION???
This year we are introducing a third dimension, the team component, to the Swim-A-Thon (SAT). This will be in addition to the usual tracking and prizes by practice pool and by individual. Swimmers will be assigned to one of eight teams, and will swim with their team at the SAT swim event on 1/29 at KCAC.
Each team will be comprised of swimmers from each group – developmental, novice, age group, regional, power, senior, and national. The teams are randomly selected and will compete for additional prizes during the SAT. How does this work? Each practice group swims at a certain time, and in a certain pool, as shown above. Lane 1 will be the Red Team, Lane 2 will be the Orange Team, etc. The team members from Red Team will swim in lane 1 for the duration of the event, but within their assigned practice group swim time. Look for some relay action between teams at the swim event, as well as a team spirit competition!
