News from the Head Coach/ CEO

Good Evening,

I am currently in Florida with the team for the International Swimming Coaches Association Senior Summer Blast where the pool is cool, but the swimming is hot!  With four days down and one more to go, the team is in 4th place among the 70 teams from around the country.  I’ll report more on the results and all the rewriting of the OCCS record books here when I get a bit more of a break.  Finals start tonight at 5:30pm with races in the

400 IM, 50 free, 200 free, 100 back and 400 Medley Relays.

Next week, 50 swimmers from OCCS head down here to Florida for the age group version of the same meet we are at now.  Before that happens, we wish everyone great success and fun at their PWSL community swim league meets tomorrow!  Don’t forget to share where you swim during the fall, winter, and spring!  Many of our groups are full but we still have a good amount of room in our entry programs at Manassas Central and the WARF. 

Have a tremendous weekend!

Coach Aaron
