This fun event began in 1999 when a handful of SPY swimmers wanted to do something different to bring in the year 2000. They suggested the idea to Coach Mickey. It was a huge success. The following year, the SPY kids wanted to make it a tradition so it began. The event is something that our SPY KIDS really wanted to accomplish, so we continue the event every year as long as the kids want to go for it.
