Our 2018-2019 Mentor Program held their first practice at Dishman on Saturday, October 13th with a great turnout!  For most of our swimmers, this was the first time they met each other so they spent the first 7-10 minutes kicking and talking in the pool.  Then half of the team worked on turns while the other half worked on starts.  After 15 minutes they switched again and after more work all of our swimmers met at the start end to do one relay.  At the end they did a big PAC cheer and left...
