Summer season plans!

RJ Greseth

High Tides Swimmers,

Summer is upon us, and the State of Minnesota is slowly restarting some businesses and activities. Hutchinson School district and PRCE will be starting to open their facilities for some groups on Monday, July 6th. We have been given the go-ahead to resume practices at Carlson Pool at that time! The High Tides will start out with short sessions in July with a goal of re-acclimating and building back to our 'athletic' base, both in the water and in dryland sessions.

I would like to use JUNE to re-engage and build our back-to-swimming community. To kick off June, we will start this weekend with the “Fish Out of Water” dryland challenge contest. This is a fun activity I found online that is running through this Sunday. Just click on the link for all the information and to participate. The contest is live now, and will end this Sunday, so sign up and get going!

Leading up to our return to practices through June, I will be hosting weekly zoom meetings for the swimmers, and laying out a new challenge (with prizes) for each week. Our first athlete zoom meeting will be next Thursday (June 11), and I will award the winner of the Fish Out of Water contest with a gift card prize. Watch your email and the web site for the Zoom invitation/meeting link.

I am excited about getting back-to-swimming and seeing all of you again at the pool.

Coach R.J.
