Welcome back Aquazot Families!
2014-15 Swim Season
To kick off the new swim season, we would like to invite ALL Aquazot families to spend a day at the beach together during the 12th Annual Ocean Swim on Sun, Sept 14 at 10am at the Corona del Mar State Beach put on by Safer 3 Water Safety Foundation.
Families can spend a day at the beach together or you have the option to register and help support Four -Time Olympian, Jason Lezak’s promotion of Safer 3 Water Safety Foundation’s 12th Annual Ocean Swim. The team that has the most registered swimmers in the Ocean Swim will get a meet-and-greet (at a later date & location) with Jason!
The non-competitive-one-mile Ocean Swim is the premier fundraiser that the Safer 3 Water Safety Foundation holds to raise money to further support its mission… Save lives through water safety education. The Safer 3 Water Safety Foundation promotes the message that Drowning is Preventable through the Safer 3 message: Safer Water, Safer People, Safer Response. All proceeds from the Ocean Swim will help the Safer 3 Water Safety Foundation reduce the frequency of drowning through education.
9 a.m. - Check-in and registration open
10 a.m. - One-Mile Ocean Swim begins
11 a.m. - Lunch begins
We encourage everyone to bring enough gear to spend the day at the beach post-swim and during the swim if you choose to just watch with the team. Be sure to bring plenty of sunscreen, towels, chairs, umbrella, sand toys and anything else you will need for a "day at the beach." All children need to be accompanied with an adult.
The non-competitive Ocean Swim is a one-mile swim with a half-mile option. Wetsuits and fins are optional.
