To all swimmers, coaches and parents...CONGRATULATIONS...we are now the #1 program on the Gulf Coast and #2 in the entire State.
USA Swimming runs a program called VCC [for Virtual Club Championships] where you recieve power points for all swims for athletes 11 - 18 years old in each individual age. For each event each team recieves points for two swimmers. Each swimmer can be in a total of four events. The points are calculated after each meet and then you recieve an overall team score.
So we are #1 on the Gulf Coast, 2nd in the State, 26th in the Southern Zone and 97th in the entire country. Across the State, Bolles School is #1 in Florida and #47th in the country. Rounding out the Top 5 in the State 3rd are Blue Dolphins [Orlando], #4 is South Florida Aquatic Club [Ft. Lauderdale] and 5th are the Sarasota Sharks.
The upcoming championship meets will definitely make a difference in the final standings. So swimmers and parents lets make all practices, stay healthy and we will swim very fast.
