Utah Summer Games June 21-23. MAC’s first travel trip in years! The MAC team will be attending the Utah Summer Games in Cedar City.

However, the $125 does not include the registration and/or entry fees for the meet. Athletes must register on the Utah Summer Games Website. The first 25 swimmers to sign up and bring payment will be registered. If we have more than 25 athletes wishing to attend, we will work on accommodating everyone. If you have questions, and would like further details, come to the parents meeting on Wednesday. We have an exciting trip planned, and we plan to take home a lot of medals!
