Saturday Mornings with Coach Melissa at Dunham Lake in Highland hosted by Carol Schemanske and Candi Good.  Please arrive at 7:45am. The parking lot has a locked gate. The gate will be unlocked from 7:45-7:55am before we swim.  If you are not there by then, you will not be able to swim.

This is NOT a coached practice but instead a group swim of varying distances and speed.  While we generally have a course/distance mapped out, you can adjust the swim for what you’re looking for in a workout. ALL speeds and levels of swimmers welcome.  A MAC $5 Annual Team membership and a USMS membership are requested. A Mac Open Water Swim Waiver is required (available at the lake).
