Red Team Prevails at 2022 14-U All-Star Festival
Over the weekend of January 22-23, 192 of Southern California's up and coming 14 & Under swimmers descended upon Las Vegas for the  2022 All-Star Festival Meet. After two days of great racing, the Red Team, captained by Coach Sarah Dawson, finished on top of the team standings. The competition throughout the weekend was so fierce,  new meet records were set in 57 of the 86 events!
This year's Festival meet, held in Las Vegas at the Pavilion Center Pool for the first time in the meet's history, also featured some new events, such as mixed relays and 400 IM for the 11-12 & 13-14 age groups. After the competition on Saturday, the athletes stuck around for a pool party celebration that was a blast. Olympians Katie Grimes and Bella Sims stopped by to sign autographs and take pictures with the next generation of SoCal stars.
This event would not have been possible without our 24 coaches, who generously volunteered to be on Staff to be a part of this event. We also can't thank the Officials enough who traveled to Las Vegas and ran a great meet.
Finally,  thank you to Fitter & Faster Swim Camps for partnering with us for this meet. Fitter and Faster provided Olympic Swimmer & Coach Brett Hawke to give an awesome presentation about the Art of Sprinting and ran an in-water clinic on flip turn and open turn progressions for the coaches on Friday evening. Brett then came to the meet on Saturday and continued to talk to and learn with the Festival Coaches. Thank you again Fitter & Faster for truly making this meet special for the athletes and coaches.
