Tuesday's News Splash

THANKS TO ALL WHO JOINED US AT THE KICK-OFF BBQ! It was great to see new & familiar faces. And as always, if you have any questions about the team operations or anything AquaJet related, grab a board member and ask us a question – we’re here to help!


Long Course Practice has started!

Chico Aqua Jet Swimmers who enjoy a challenge have the opportunity to increase endurance and stroke productivity at Long Course (LC) practice. Long course is held in the 50M format to prepare for LCM swim meets and is held at the McGlynn Pool (119 Sycamore Street in Red Bluff), Mon-Thurs from 7:30-9:30am. Navy Group, Pre-Senior and Senior Group swimmers are invited to attend. Cost is $2 cash each practice or $25 for the summer season. 


CAJ MERCHANDISE: Need team apparel? Fleet Feet is the proud home of team merchandise – they are located downtown at 241 Main Street. Pick up t-shirts and other apparel AND cooooooling towels – which will be super helpful in keeping your swimmer cooled down in the predicted 100+ degree temps anticipated this weekend!
