Noteworthy: Take a look at our Upcoming Event section, we have added many dates for the summer! This week many of our added events are open water, the summer (pool) meet schedule has not been finalized. Here are some of our open water options to look forward to this summer!

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 20).
  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.

  1. Swim to the Moon:  Looking to get a new swim event on your calendar to train for?  Consider Swim to the Moon (open water swim event in Pinckney State Recreation Area) on Sunday 8/18!  There are distances for everyone:  .5 mile, 1.2 mile, 5k and 10k. If you sign up, be sure to select the “Milford Athletic Club (MAC)” team designation so we can track our #BAN MAC swimmers!  Click link for more information:
