Noteworthy: Fall Season Start! Who’s excited? We are kicking the season off right with a T-30 on Monday and Tuesday during practice (so if you don’t want to do this set twice pick either Monday or Tuesday). The T-30 is a timed 30-minute swim, the goal for each swimmer is to hold the fastest pace they can hold for 30 minutes without stopping. Swimmers will be responsible for counting their own laps. The results will give us a current threshold pace for swimmers and will give us a season start for intervals within workouts.
Let the fun begin!
Outside of the test sets this week we will be resetting Streamlines, body position, ready position, and kick!
Please see the State Meet heading below. It has been moved to Noteworthy because MAC is hosting the 2019 Michigan Masters State Meet! We will have lots of important info to keep track of throughout the season and we need everyone to stay informed!
Make sure you check out the website, Jim recently spent time updating and adding to our website. We have added an event calendar so make sure you check out the Calendar tab to stay up-to-date with all of our latest events! Thank you, Jim, for all your hard work!
State Meet: We’re happy to announce that State Meet 2019 is now officially 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!

From the Coaches:
Kris: Hi everyone and Happy Fall!
I’ve been enjoying my couple week break after closing the country club pool for the season. I am happy to see quite a few of you with me at the pool in the mornings as I get back into shape for the season ahead!
Dianne: I am looking forward to getting back to work and for the exciting season to come! This week we will focus on Streamline, kick and we will start the season off with test sets in order to set base starting point for the year. See you at the pool!
On a Personal Note: A special thanks goes out to Tom Welsh for hosting the 3rdBig Swim of the season. Tom has truly outdone himself by supplying not only a great open water swim in Hartland’s Long Lake but a true feast and celebration after the swim! Thank you Tom for your wonderful hospitality and kindness!
