Summer Fitness Challenge 2018

We are participating in the 2018 USMS Summer Fitness Challenge.  A 2k swim, done in any manner you desire.  Straight through, as a relay, with fins, or whatever. If you aren’t in shape for this, come out to a few practices first!

We are welcoming visitors and new members – just let us know you’ll be there.

If you use Facebook, can say that you are attending our event:  https://www.facebook.com/events/258519034703100/

When is it?

We are doing this during Saturday practice July 21st – starting at 6:30am.

2018 Winter Fitness Challenge

What?

We are participating in the USMS Winter Fitness Challenge! This event is a 30 minute swim done in any you want – so equipment and/or relays are ok. The Winter Fitness Challenge is an official fundraiser for the USMS Swimming Saves Lives Foundation.

To help organize this, we have created an event on Facebook; make sure you say you are coming: https://www.facebook.com/events/1643464085748259/

Make sure you invite your friends! I’m hoping everyone has some fun – plus we might go out afterwards. If your friends are newer swimmers this is a great chance to get introduced into masters swimming. If they need a little boost to train for this, I will welcome them in practice.

When?

We are doing this event at 6:30pm on February 23, 2018 – at the Georgetown Rec. Center.

If you can’t make it then, you can do this on your own time as well. Just make sure you register and do it before the 28th!

How to Register?

To participate, you will need $12 to register for the Winter Fitness Challenge at: https://www.clubassistant.com/club/form/usms_verify.cfm?form_type=Event%20Registration&c=2426&cid=76207
