Dear ASC Families, As you can imagine, all of our efforts to reduce the chance for the disease, COVID-19, to spread are important. USA Swimming issued a press release which you should have received, USA SWIMMING COVID-19, stating that all competitions are suspended for thirty days, beginning on March 12, 2020. The Big Island Swimming meet on April 4, 2020, is therefore postponed. The HPA campus has also taken necessary precautions and has canceled or postponed all events through April 14. This situation remains fluid and while we are hopeful...

Thank you, to all the swimmers and families who participated in making this event happen. Special thanks to Coach Sarie who organized the chaperoned/overnight event for our senior group swimmers. Coach Barbara for her work with the Silver and Gold swimmers. To all the parents who supported, especially Brent Imonen, who provided the very much needed tents and cooler to keep the athletes out of the sun and hydrated. The efforts of parent crew who set up each day, and those who took down, did not go unnoticed. Team Effort!...
