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!

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.
Lane 3 had some great turns this morning. Great job Lynn, Jack, and Jenny – nice streamlines!
Lane 1 had an awesome practice this morning!
Great job Gayla, Cassie, Erika, and Audris – Glad you guys made it and put in an outstanding effort.
Coach is learning some tips for putting on stroke clinics! Hopefully I get smart, 😂
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:
We have some elite polar bears this morning! (And a cold coach 😂)
Edit: Ice on Phil’s pull buoy!
No practice January 1st, 2018. Enjoy the New Year and stay warm!
Our regular practice schedule will start again with Tuesday evening practice (Jan 2 – 6:30pm at Rec).
Here is our practice schedule for the next few days over Christmas.
- Sat 12/23: 6:45-8:15am at Village.
- Mon 12/25: No Practice.
- Tues 12/26: 7-8:30am at Village – No Evening Practice.
- Wed 12/27: Back to Regular Schedule.
If you are traveling, have safe travels!
Saturday practice 12/16 will be ending early as I will need to make it down to UT for a kids meet.
Plan on getting in the water at 6:30am. I’d like practice to be done at or just before 7:30am.
If that doesn’t work for you, you could always swim, on your own, at the Rec when it opens.
