Saturday’s practice had a bunch of 25’s…  100 to be exact!   Coach got his steps in for sure, haha.   It was a fun challenge, and expect it again in the future. 🙂

2018 Winter Fitness Challenge


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.


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

Rec Center Locker Rooms Closed (Feb 8-11)

The Recreation Center locker rooms will be closed for maintenance  February 8-11.  Keep this in mind if you use them to change. I’m assuming the family bathroom will still be open, but I’m not certain.

This should only matter for evening practice Thursday, February 8 and morning practice Friday, February 9th.

The locker room should be open for Monday morning practice.

No MLK Day Practices (Mon Jan 15)

The Rec Center is closed for MLK Day.  We are going cancel morning and evening practices for Monday.

If there is any winter weather later in the week, we will swim unless rec is closed.

If you want to do some dryland, here are some suggestions:

Core Strength

Shoulder Exercises
