That's a Wrap on Long Course 2018!


That’s a Wrap on Long Course Season!


Long course season has come to a close after KCSA swimmers swam their hearts out at Missouri Valley Long Course Districts and Championships as well as the 14&u Central Zone meet.  Now everyone is getting some much deserved rest and all the swimmers and coaches that are teachers are gearing up for the start of a new school year.  We head back to the pool on Monday, August 20 for the 13&over swimmers from Blue Springs as well as all ages in St. Joseph.  For the 12&under swimmers from Blue Springs, their pool time returns on Monday, August 27th.  These clinics are a great way to ease back into practice, work on technique and are an opportunity for potential new swimmers to check out our team.  For details regarding the end of August clinics, please see our website and click on Team Info/New Swimmer Aug. Clinics at the top menu bar.
