Hawaiian Swimming Delegates Meeting - April 18, 2021

  • Hawaiian swimming has begun to approve dual meets on Oahu. Kauai has had a single team competition. Our island is the only one to have multiple teams competing. Oahu is hopeful to have some sort of July championship, but note, a lot must change in terms of numbers and vaccination numbers.

Good Luck to Coach Carrie

SWIMMING GEAR WITH TYR - USE OUR DISCOUNT CODE: Academy25

  • ASC has entered an agreement with TYR whereas all new purchases of suits and equipment are through TYR. In exchange, ASC has this 25% discount code "Academy25" to be used on TYR.com. TYR will be able to track ASC purchases and when we hit benchmarks in sales, will result in additional bonuses for the team. Independent of purchases, ASC will receive some coaching attire, new banners and for those swimmers who make Senior Sectionals, Futures, Jr' Nationals, or USA Senior Nationals, they will be outfitted by TYR.

  • Girl's Suit: Please purchase the PHOENIX WOMEN'S SPLICE DIAMOND FIT in navy/white or GIRLS smaller sizes in navy/white.

  • Boy's Suit: Please purchase the MEN'S PHOENIX JAMMER TYR BOYS PHOENIX JAMMER or the TYR BOYS PHOENIX RACER in navy/white.

  • Goggles - Your choices but recommended are three different styles for beginning, intermediate and advanced levels of competition and training. CLICK HERE FOR THE RECOMMENDATIONS. All TYR Goggles are available to view here. 

  • Note:  12/under swimmers are not permitted to wear technical suits (taped seems) I do not want 13 and over swimmers racing in them (tech suits) until there are championship or off-island meets available. These suits will be great for team pride and performance in practice and non-championship meets. We are going with the Navy/White colors for our suits and we will be offering a group order at the beginning of each month. If your swimmer is not in need of one now, we ask that when they do need one, you buy our team suit on the TYR site, if possible.

All for now,

Stay safe!

Coach Mark
