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.  This is for MAC swimmers only. We have limited parking spaces allocated to our group. If you are bringing a friend or family member, they must come in your vehicle.  A USMS membership is required. MAC team and Swim membership are NOT required, but you must complete a Saturday Open Water Swim Waiver to swim.
