Happy August Metro Aquatics Swimmers and Families,

We are so proud of all our athletes for such a fun season! We know that the past year has been hard for many of you. All the coaches are very proud of the hard work and dedication all the athletes have put into their team and sport.

We want to thank all the parents and volunteers who helped out at the 14&U Championship Meet this past weekend. We could not have done it without you all!
