Chinooks Families, Let's work together to ensure everyone is healthy, active, and staying sane during this challenging time. While we can't get to the pool, or go work out with others, we CAN stay active at home and outside. While still practicing social distancing you can keep up with your fitness goals. We have workouts you can utilize or make some of your own. Go for a run, or a hike or a bike ride and make sure you continue to work on strength training as well. Record your daily...

Hello Chinook Families, We have an opportunity to join in with Alaska Swimming using a phone app to track activity and create some fun at this difficult time. We received an invitation from Josh Gregory (General Chair of Alaska Swimming) to join in. I accepted and tried it out yesterday. Of course it automatically tracks your steps and there is an option to manually input other activities. Let's give it a try and record our activity/fitness. This is not mandatory, this is voluntary and hopefully fun! Please go to https://www.mypacer.com/organizations/ge69316/invite...

Our first concern is the health and well being of the swimming community and the community at large. We are considering some...

Dear Chinook Families, Amid the COVID 19 outbreak and due to the dynamic situation the coronavirus brings, USA Swimming is limiting sporting events for the next 30 days. What does this mean? A swim meet is a sporting event, therefore our meet tomorrow is canceled. I am waiting to hear from other meet hosts to confirm meet cancelations. The importance of these next 30 days will be critical for the health and well being of all. We will continue to have practice and will follow health guidelines as indicated by...
