Noteworthy: Tomorrow we start back in the pool after a great holiday season and some awesome clinics. Tomorrow, Monday January 7 will also be our official start to our team challenge of MAC to Mesa. How do I participate you ask? You can be a part of this challenge simply by attending practice. We will be swimming the mileage from Milford High School to the site of Spring Nationals in Mesa, AZ. Our goal will be to swim approximately 1,985 miles, together, as a team. Each week, after practice, swimmers will record your total distance for the workout rounded to the nearest ¼ mile. We will have 16 weeks to swim that distance, from the week of January 7th-April 25th! Will you help us reach our goal? Take a look at the banner Coach Jim designed that will track our progress! How far can you swim to start 2019 off with a splash?!?
Mark Your Calendars… The Michigan Masters winter meet schedule has been set. You can register for all meets on the Michigan Masters website: www.michiganmasters.com.
Since everyone at MAC will be swimming at State Meet this year (YES, that means you), it’s a good idea to do some winter meets to get ready for State. It’s also not too late to finish the Check Off Challenge. The challenge is to swim every event offered in a swim meet at least one time during the 2018-19 swim meet season ending with State Meet. Events can be a mix of yards or meters. It’s a great way to swim outside your comfort zone, and you might actually find a new event that you like! Swim each event, complete the attached worksheet, and receive a MAC prize!
