Meets

 

Inland Empire Junior Olympics in Pasco, WA July 22-24, is our region’s championship meet for the long course (summer) season. The eligibility report for the meet is here-there is a small issue with the way the report is generated, so please note that swimmers who have a “NT” (no time) are not allowed to sign up for those events. Swimmers can sign up for up to 8 qualified events (times that are in black, except for NT events) with a maximum of 3 individual swims per day. Senior Zones and Futures swimmers, it’s recommended you sign up for 3-4 events on Friday and Saturday only as you’ll be resting for your meets the next week, but need to stay in the water and this is a great opportunity to get in some racing practice or snag that last-minute cut!

 

Age Group Zones and Senior Zones swimmers, if you haven’t registered online please do so ASAP so IES can make travel arrangements!

 

 

18 and over swimmers (or parents!), the Kroc Masters team is hosting a small open water event July 16-check out more info here.

 

 

 

Croc-a-thon

We are offering one last chance for families to meet their fundraising goal; the Cro-a-thon will take place during our Kroc practices on July 27. Swimmers will raise donations and then see how many laps they can complete during a practice! Details to come shortly-funds raised can count towards this year’s fundraising goal. 

 

Practice Focus 

All squads will be working this week on some things we saw room for improvement on at the meet, especially approaches into turns! We’ll be keeping the mileage high for our upper squads, in anticipation of the speed work and rest that will come before our championship meets in July. With no meets on the immediate horizon, it’s a good opportunity to train hard and build up our swimming endurance!
