A big thanks to Coach Jim for getting to the bottom of and fixing the issues with the Weekly e-mails! This week our website will adapt some much needed behind the scenes changes in order to fix the issues and add safety to our website.


MAC Lite will be added to our current schedule on Monday nights from 7-7:45pm and on Friday mornings from 8:45-9:30am. MAC Lite will work on the stroke mechanics of all four competitive strokes and aim to slowly integrate swimmers into the 1-1/2 hour MAC practices.


Our MAC to Mesa challenge is off to a fantastic start! To date MAC has logged 376 miles and we have reached Bloomington, IL! Please continue to record your mileage for each practice with the coach on deck. Coaches will total each person’s mileage for the week and log the results on our banner.

From the Coaches:

Kris: Distance Tuesday last week great job on 10 x 100 – some of you for the first time ever! We’re back to our regular workout for the next couple of weeks working on pacing and building yardage as we get ready for state meet.

Drill Thursday we will try again to work on balance for freestyle and backstroke!




Dianne: Hopefully we can get in the water this week and work on racing the 100 Fly! I’ll see you at the pool!
