National Team Distance Challenge
Dear Bolles Sharks Parents & Swimmers,
The USA Swimming National Team has challenged all swimmers to the “National Team Distance Challenge.” This is a 1650 yard freestyle swim to be done in a swim meet or during swim practice any time between December 18 and January 8th. The Bolles Sharks have accepted this challenge for all swimmers in the Senior Program as well as the swimmers in Coach Zubero’s Great Whites. Coach Bahr’s Hammerheads will do a mini version of the challenge and race a 500. Once done we will send the results of the 1650 to USA swimming to be ranked with all participants from around the country. USA swimming will then compile and rank the Top 100 swimmers for each of the following age groups: 14&U boys, 14&U girls, 15-18 boys, 15-18 girls, 19&Over boys, and 19&Over girls, and post the results on USA swimming website. The 500 results will be compiled by the Bolles Coaches and posted for the swimmers and parents to see how great they all did.
The Bolles Senior swimmers will partake in the Challenge on Monday January 4th during regular practice schedule. This timed swim will be done short course yards and timed by the swimmers and coaches. The Hammerheads and Great Whites coaches will send out an email in the next few days notifying them when their Challenge will take place. We look forward to having all swimmers participate on these days. Parents are welcome to come, watch, and cheer on our Sharks as they compete with the rest of the country.
The Bolles Coaching Staff
