This week, The Huron Valley Pools and Fitness Management met with MAC team members to explain new membership pricing that is going to be implemented in January. The new prices and options will be listed in the activity guide that will be published on January 1. I will include a copy of the new rates in this next week’s weekly email. As of right now I would encourage you to renew your current memberships before the rates change after the New Year. Please direct any questions/concerns you have to Michelle Merrick (Aquatics and Programming Manager), and/or Shannon Loso (Director of Recreation and Community Education),

April 12-14, 2019                 MI Masters State Meet Waterford Mott HS-MAC Hosts


Event Details/Results:


State Meet: State Meet 2019 is on the calendar for April 12-14 at Waterford Mott High School. Be sure to plan your vacations, snowbird travel, child’s weddings, birth of grandchildren, etc. all around this extra special event so we can have every single MAC swimmer in attendance this year! We’ve got some planning meetings this fall to line up some sponsor ideas, as well as spread out the volunteer responsibilities.  We will get all the information out to you as we get it all set with the other Huron Valley teams we are partnering with to host since this is such a large event. The Milford HS Boys’ and Girls’ Teams, Lakeland HS Boys’ and Girls’ Teams, and Huron Valley Penguins will all be working together and all proceeds will go to help replace the scoreboards and software timing systems at the two facilities. Total cost for both is almost $80,000 and we’re hoping that with a great job at state meet and some extra sponsorship opportunities we could raise up to $15,000 of that. So be sure to mark your calendars and more info to come!
