Are you ready for a challenge? Do you want to swim for a good cause? Come swim at the 2ND Annual TURKEY TRIALS and earn your bragging rights! The swim will take place on Thanksgiving morning and last as long as it takes for you to finish your one event. Just one? Oh, that’s easy! This optional challenge is open to all NJB swim team members.
When: Thursday 11/26/20 (Thanksgiving Day)
Time: 8:00-10:00 am (swimmers leave when finished)
Where: TVRC Pool
Fee: $5.00 per participant to be invoiced (no cash/checks) to each participating swimmer (swimmers may opt to donate more). If you’re unable to attend but still wish to donate, send us an email with the amount. 100% of all proceeds will be donated to Manna House Soup Kitchen (Newton, NJ) towards helping to feed people in need this holiday season.
Events: Swimmers may choose 1 event to swim (coaches will review and approve). Parents/family member (1) needed on deck to count/time for their swimmer.
- 4000 IM (recommended for 13&Overs) 1,000 yards of each stroke
- 4000 Free (recommended for 13&Overs) 80x50’s non-stop free
- 2000 IM (recommended for 10&Overs) 500 yards (10x50’s non-stop) of each stroke
- 2000 Free (recommended for 10&Overs) 40x50’s non-stop free
- 1000 Free (recommended for 14&Unders) 20x50’s non-stop free
The purpose of the swim is to challenge swimmers of all abilities and to give them a sense of accomplishment, all while swimming for a cause! The distances are designed to help the swimmer to realize that no USA Swim age group race is a "Long Race". Hopefully this will encourage them to attempt longer races than they were previously comfortable with and give them the confidence to be successful!
