Dave's Notes ---- May 4th


May 4, 2020


CAST - Covid-19 - Out of the water - Week 8

Things are getting closer to some type of return to the pool. There is a lot going on behind the scenes, meetings, letters to govt. officials, talks with the Kroc center, etc. I will send out a detailed note by Wednesday afternoon of how we might be returning to the water some time in May. (and hopefully no later than early June).


1) am and pm exercises

I just leave this on the list as a reminder. If you're being a 24/7 couch potato....get yourself off your booty and get some exercise in. It really is a great opportunity to get strong. minimum 15 minutes am and 15 min pm, although I would prefer senior swimmers were up to 45 min ea time.


2. Nightly video sessions

Join us each weeknight for learning at 5:00 pm.

The sessions will last between 30 and 45 minutes.
