We collected our Division C 2nd Place Trophy during halftime of a great All Star Meet! We have two MCSL Champions and some new team Records (all awards should be in family folders sometime today)!
We also have some new information about Winter Swimming . Please read on!

Rachel Roddin was able to compete in the butterfly (she was the first alternate in the event) and seems destined for many All Star appearances ahead!
WINTER SWIMMING UPDATES:
RMSC at the MLK location will be offering one final tryout for 12 and Unders sometime around September 10th . Keep your eyes and ears open !
FINS still has spots for the year! Fins is a good way to stay in the water without a big commitment. They practice at Georgetown Prep and Old Farm Pool in Rockville.
Tollefson is inching closer to expanding their program to a second (outdoor, heated) pool, and if they do, there could be many spots opening for the team and clinics. They hope to announce something soon.
NCAP (Nation’s Capital Swimming) holds tryouts and has practices at many nearby locations.
ASA (All Star Aquatics) holds tryouts and has practices at different nearby locations. Older kids would depend on ability.
Joe Flaherty’s Dolphins might still have spots for their team and lessons. They practice out of Georgetown Prep (and other places).
Silver Spring YMCA Piranhas have a new coach and might have spots available.
There are other clinics and lessons out there if you ask around and do some googling. If you have questions after doing some research, please email us, we will offer whatever help we can!
Thank you for a wonderful, memorable summer. See you at the G!
