Elmbrook Swim Club – Newsletter – February 13, 2020 - Week 23



Elmbrook Swim Club Mission Statement:

Empower community members to achieve excellence in life through swimming.



Club Note From Head Coach Brent Boock


This looks to be a busy summer of competition for the Elmbrook Swim Club. Many competitions have shifted slightly earlier, including the Wisconsin Championships competitions. Most of the competitions offered in Wisconsin appear in May-June with July being slightly lighter on competitions offered. 

Some may note the absence of a “travel, out of state” competition being offered this 2020 Long Course season. With much of the staff attending Olympic Trials in June, staff scheduling issues, and appropriate meet opportunities on open weekends, this “travel, out of state” offering had to be passed on. Next Long Course, this will be offered with the SI&II groups traveling to the bi-annual Florida trip and the remaining groups attending a competition in the Midwest region.

Please make a note of the competition commitment information to insure you are committing to the correct competitions for your athletes’ group and are aware of Elmbrook Swim Club hosted competitions with volunteer requirements. Information available - HERE.

Meet sign-up will open at the Elmbrook Swim Club website on Friday, February 14 th and will close on Friday, March 6 th.
