Adult Swim Lessons

Erin Sullivan is heading up a super project in conjunction with the Kroc Center and she is looking for a few volunteers.  The project is Adult Swim Lessons.  Yes, you do have the skill set to help with these lessons!  These lessons are meant for the true beginner wanting to learn how to swim.  Your comfort in the water and ability to swim make you a great candidate to help someone.  Only two lessons are offered – 5:45 – 7:30 pm on  Friday April 8 and Friday April 15.  Contact Erin at <erinswim@cox.net> if you can help.  This is a great project to get your feet wet!

 

Quarterly Dues

The first quarter has just zoomed by.  It is time to pay for the second quarter (April, May, and June).  The fee for the quarter is $110 or pay the $45 fee for the month.  You may hand the payment to your coach at practice or mail it to Samland, 3513 S. 94 Ave., Omaha, NE  68124.

A Fun Swim Meet

Erin Sullivan will be putting on a sprint swim meet coming up in May.  Masters meets are fun because they are a low key/ low pressure meet.   Also, you get to swim your favorite event(s). This meet will take place at the Kroc Center on Sunday, May 22.  Entry forms will soon be available at practice and on Facebook.  For those who participated in the New Year’s Day Challenge, this event generated enough money to pay for 10 kids to join the Kroc swim program J
