June 3, 2020- I am a little late today! Sorry! On this Day, Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody goes Gold, Rafeal Nadal was born and Muhammad Ali passed. 

As we have all heard, pools in Santa Clara County can open starting Friday (6/5). At this point, we are starting with Member Only access to FHCC. Our first availability to swim will be in the form of lessons, which we will release on Saturday at the earliest, please do not email in advance of this as we are still working things out and do not have the answers yet. As many of you know, the County guidelines are still extremely restrictive, we can still not have more than 1 swimmer/ lane unless they are from the same household. We will be as creative as possible to work on this, but please be patient and give us a chance to come up with some solutions. 

1: Today's 1 sentence prompt is: Today I felt successful when I.... Remember, just 1 sentence or just 1 thought and you've succeeded! 

2: Today's #PASADailyChallenge! is the #PASANotMyArmsChallenge! Find a partner and put on a big Tshirt. The front person can not use their hands, but can only use their voice to tell their arms what to do. You can make a sandwich or put on make up up! Once you have your amazing video (or several) tag your site and @PaloAltoStanfordAquatics in your video and remember, it is the process that count!

3: Remeber that we have Virtual Dryland today, but we have moved to a subscription platform with EverAthlete- click HERE for more inforamtion.
