Event Details/Results:

 

Summer Open Water: Open water swim season will be here before you know it!  Here are some options for those of you who are interested in training opportunities and/or events:

  1. MAC Open Water Swim Practice:  The upcoming summer MAC practice schedule will include a Thursday evening practice at Spring Mill Pond with Maria (Starting June 13).
  2. MAC SSS (Saturday Swim Spots):  We’ll continue to have our informal group swims on Saturday mornings.  Looking to start this on June 1st – stay tuned for confirmation and details as we get closer!  This year we’re looking at making Dunham Lake our “home” lake but still traveling around to other lakes here and there.
  • For those of you new to MAC…Coach Melissa and Kim Yarima lead a group swim every Saturday morning during the summer months.  It’s not a formal practice and there’s no coaching – just a group swim of varying distances.  We use the buddy system and watch out for one another.  Various levels and speeds of swimmers – EVERYONE welcome!

We would strongly recommend that anyone interested in SSS or other open water swims over the summer months, purchase a swim bouy and a whistle. Safety is key when we are out in open waters! Both are easy to find at Swim Outlet or New Wave Swim or even Amazon.
