** SATURDAY MORNINGS (2/10-5/5 ONLY) After the Albany High School swim season, we return to the 8:30 - 9:45 am workout time. As we adjust to the needs of our community, this momentary change can be a time of strength building as we continue to stay the course at 8:30 am with Dry Land specialist, Steve Trutane. Bring a mat. Everyone is invited to participate. Afterwards, get ready to swim at 9:15 am.
