  • Due to the NWAA Meet there will be no Practice for any groups on Saturday, June 8th.
  • Regular Practice Monday, June 10th- Wednesday, June 12th.

Special Note from Coach Dawson—Hawg group swimmers are reminded to be sure to purchase a snorkel.  Snorkels will be used in the long course pool this summer and throughout upcoming short course season.  All groups, from Hawgs to Seniors, use snorkels regularly.  Snorkels are a great tool to help with body position and stroke development!


New Swim Apparel— A new Summer Team t-shirt coming soon to SwimLife!  We have already added camp chairs and stadium chairs.  Go to SwimLife and take a look at all the new apparel and more will be coming soon!
