Swim Families,

The coaching staff is ready for another great week with our ASC swimmers. As COVID rates fluctuate, please continue to support ASC by adhering to our safety protocols for masks, distancing and washing hands.  

This week, we have a normal M-F, with Saturday's times mirroring this past weekend due to academic testing in the gym. Some of our athletes will participate in that national exam.

Big Island Swimming (BIS)/Hawaiian Swimming  News

  • Big Island Swimming - a working group of members of the Board of Directors (coaches) of the BIS is looking into how our county pools can become available to the other clubs on island. Presently, other clubs are not able to have organized practices in a county pool. Also, this group is working with the county on repairs to county pools so that competitions could eventlually be held there. Kona Community pool and the Kawamoto pool in Hilo do not have adequate starting platforms to run a competition. The Pahoa pool does.  
  • Sanction requirements under Covid conditions are being looked at. A part of my intent with our intrasquad meets is to show how things can safely be done.  More to come on this topic as well.

In the meantime, we will keep doing our best to provide the safest practices we can and we thank you for your support. The coaching staff is thrilled to be able to work with swimmers and provide a safe exercise outlet for them. It's good for their physical and mental development.

All the best,

Coach Mark
