Coaches and Athletes,
We will be selecting our 2018 Open Water All Star team off of Spring FL Swimming Senior Champs and FLAGS. The team will be selected from the top 5 swimmers in the 15-18 , 13-14, 11-12 and 10 and under distance events. We will use the 1650 for the 13 and older swimmers, the 1000 for the 11-12 and the 500 for the 10 and under.
Paperwork for this event will be available at the FL Swimming table at Senior Champs and FLAGS. Head All Star Coach, Cashel Mack, will be making rounds at this meet to check in with athletes and coaches.
This is a fun event. It will be on the weekend of April 13-15th. It is held at Lake Miromar Lakes, in Ft. Myers, and is hosted by Gulf Coast Swim Team. It will be in conjunction with the 2018 FL Swimming Open Water Championships.
We will meet at the lake on the day before the event for a clinic, practice/ warm up in the lake, team pursuits and relays, and a team dinner.
This event also serves as a qualifier for the FL Swimming Open Water Zone team. We need a confirmation from athletes intending to join us by the final day of the selection meet (FLAGS or SR Champs).
