A Reminder... Do Not Pee in the Pool

Coaches and Parents, 

As we enter the final stretch of our championship season, please be reminded that water and air quality are just as important as wearing a tech suit.  Please find the attached articles debunking Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte’s claim that urinating in the pool is safe.  Our young athletes need to understand that there is a responsibility that comes with wearing a tech suit.  Please reinforce with your athletes the performance and health consequences that are at stake.
