What: Come to practice all
winter and swim like a polar bear! Earn a patch!
When: Dec. 1 through Feb.
Who: Tiger Sharks,
Piranhas and Tadpoles at both pools
How: Tiger Sharks and Piranhas should come to practice an average of 3 times a week. Tadpoles should practice an average of 2 times a week. Coaches will be taking attendance. (Don't worry, the weeks of Christmas and New Year's don't count.)
But Be Winter-Smart!
1. Please stay well. Do not swim
if you have a fever or cough from a cold or flu. If you take a few
days to recover, you will get better faster than if you try to swim
through it. Drink lots of fluids and rest!
2. Keep you body warm with a parka
or jacket; keep your head warm with a winter hat; and keep your
feet warm with shoes.
3. Get enough of sleep, eat
healthy foods and wash your hands!
4. Swim more when you are well to
