Over the years, we have had kids ask for extra help with strokes, starts/turns, etc. Unfortunately, with the size of our team and the limited amount of time we have in the pool, it has made offering extra help challenging. On Fridays, we have scheduled time specially to offer that extra help. We plan to concentrate on different strokes for a week at a time and then offer extra help for that stroke on the Friday of that week. As time/volunteers allow, we are happy to work on other strokes. Please note, THIS IS NOT A PRACTICE! It is an opportunity for the kids that want extra help with their strokes.
Individual and Team Pictures – Thursday, June 8 at 8 am for individual pictures and at 9 am for a team picture (with MAC Photography).
Mile Swim – Friday, June 29; (10 and up that want to attempt a mile should arrive to start at 8:15, 9 and under and those wanting less than a mile should arrive at 9 am). Bring a breakfast item to share after we swim. This Oak Creek tradition will be a fun event for swimmers to see how far they can go and what they have accomplished this year.
