Noteworthy: We are hoping to start Walnut Creek practices this coming weekend but we are waiting on confirmation of insurance coverage through USMS. Once we receive it Kris will send a separate email with details about Walnut Creek swimming. As a reminder, if you are planning on participating at Walnut Creek this summer you must be USMS registered – NO EXCEPTIONS! Our insurance coverage is provided through them and it is mandatory. If you come and are not registered you will either have to register online before practice or you will be unable to participate.
Wish everyone headed to the Senior Games in Birmingham this week Good Luck when you see them at the pool!

Open Water Transitions: Hey Triathletes! Whether new or experienced, whatever race distance you’re signed up for or eyeing, come join Coaches Jim and Maria for the 2017 MAC Tri Clinic! Saturday June 17th, 9:30-11:00 am at Milford High School. (We will confirm exactly which room this week.) We will cover everything from training plans, what gear to pack, transition areas, race strategies, to post race considerations. Charge for this clinic will be $10.00.
Penguins Plunge: This event has not open for registration currently. Here is the link to the web site: https://www.teamunify.com/EventShow.jsp?returnPage=%2FEventsCurrent.jsp%3Fteam%3Dmihvp&id=786851&team=mihvp
From the Coaches:
Maria: Tuesday June 20th, is the first open water practice at 6:30. We will meet at Kent Lake Beach (NOT the pond). You’ll have an opportunity to swim the T-rex course, and also set-up and practice transitions.
Kris: Gone for summer season
Dianne: Please keep in mind that Friday workouts will be a combined “race pacing” oriented workout. Mondays and Wednesday will offer the open water option. We are continuing to get great open water workouts from Maria, I realize the weather is getting nice and we would all like to be outside but make sure you take advantage of your pool time too! We had an awesome group at the pool Friday for a great workout! Some night regulars and other people we don’t see too often were there and it made for a great challenging workout. Great Job everyone, what fun it was to coach!
On a Personal Note:
Communication: If you have questions for any of the coaches don’t hesitate to ask! Here’s a quick list of emails to make that a bit easier!
Kris: firstname.lastname@example.org (Back in September)
