The date of the Fitter and Faster two-day swim camp at Northview High School is approaching quickly. This camp will be on April 13 & 14.

This camp is focused on the fastest parts of every race: the start and the turns! These are two of our swimmer’s biggest opportunities to drop time. Session sizes are limited. We cannot wait for this event and we strongly recommend everyone click the link below to register ASAP!

Details and Registration

Leading each session will be Elite Clinician and Paralympic medalist Tucker Dupree! Tucker is one of the most effective and popular clinicians with Fitter and Faster. Check out some of his recent reviews:

“Tucker, you were absolutely amazing, and the kids loved you! Your teaching style kept them focused and allowed them to maximize their learning and retention. We would love to have you back in the future! Thank you so much for your time and expertise!”

“Tucker, you are an inspiration to those who watched and learned from you. Your skills are fantastic. I don’t know how you do it with your vision impairment – we were amazed! Good luck in your future endeavors.”

“Tucker was amazing not only with the kids but keeping things moving and explaining to the kids on a level they would understand.”

Practice Cancelled 2/7

But keep reading below!

So, yeah, the word is the High School has no power.  All evening activities are cancelled, including us.  I guess that means y’all are ready for the championships!

Speaking of… plan on the championships happening.  Should anything change from the host teams, we’ll let you know as soon as we hear via emailwebTwitter and Facebook.

If you can’t make it, please send us an email.  We’ll then let the coaches know.  It’s easier if we centralize the communication.

Finally, double check the addresses and directions below.  It’s was brought to my attention that I was previously giving your directions to the athletic fields and not the pool, where you will actually swim.  The addresses below are correct.

Championship A Meet Tomorrow

Please double check the addresses below.  Remember that Saturday morning we start at event #37.  If for whatever reason you cannot make it, please email us and we’ll coordinate with the coaches.

Championship A Meets are this weekend. Here we go!  It’s show time!  Let’s get down to the nitty-gritty.  Let’s get this show on the road!

Some notes about the Championship A Meet

  1. The competition is going to be tough
  2. The officials are more strict about proper stroke.
  3. Athletes can participate in only 2 individual events.  And they can only compete in an event they have already competed in during this season (a seed time).
  4. Each team can only have 1 relay per age bracket – so a few athletes will compete in a third event on the relays.
  5. There is no admission fee.
  6. Please remind your swimmer that the Warm Down pool is for warming down, this is not open swim time.  Don’t get worn out before the big event.
  7. Remember that Saturday morning we will be starting at event #37.  Don’t be late thinking that your swimmer doesn’t swim until later.
