Fall update/High School Swimming info
I wanted to take a few moments to check in with our fall swimmers and their families to say what a wonderful job you are doing! In speaking to the coaches on deck the overall opinion is that you are all making remarkable strides!!! Keep up the great work.
For the most part the weather has been agreeing with us as well. It’s been awesome.
Don't forget for those interested we have a Halloween costume contest. Wear something you can swim in....and who can say trick or trick...inbetween breaths?
A short update---Right now, our High School swimmers are working hard with the end goal of dropping individual times in time for Regionals and State in the Oct/November. We have a strong team with our numbers in the mid 30’s. If any of our Swordfish swimmers would like to become a fan of HS team, the web address is

Their next event is a home meet on Sept 16th at 4:00PM.
Although our club team will not have practice that day, as is custom our club swimmers and their families are highly encouraged to attend the meet, time and cheer for their[current and] past team mates and participate in the general operation of the day. It is a fun, community based event and allows for our home town spirit to shine thru. Please bring your friends and enjoy the short swim meet!!! Go swimmers!!!
On Friday the 19th the High School swimmers will be taking part in their annual 24 hour relay. They will be swimming intervals beginning at 5:00 pm and going all night, camping out on deck and swimming straight thru until 5:00 pm Saturday. This is a chaperoned event, and the High School teams’ one big chance at fund raising for the season. There will be music, food and a lot of fun, including breakfast in the morning. Parents, and community members interested in stopping by to cheer them have an open invitation. Any donation will be greatly appreciated.
As always, thank you for your support, and see you on deck. If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact me.
Have a great day!!!
