Hey team! It’s almost time!!! Come and swim with us at the Pacific Masters Short Course Championship meet...Walnut Creek Masters is hosting! It’s April 6-8 at Campolindo High School and it will be the most fun you’ve ever had 😁 Last year, USF barely beat us in team points. Let’s not let it happen again! If you don’t know what to swim or what times to enter—just ask! That’s what we’re here for!
Coach Kerry and super fast sprinter (and WCM swimmer) Ericka Richards gave 16 lucky WCM swimmers an awesome sprint clinic on Sunday—time in the classroom followed by fun with bungee cords, parachutes, sprinting in t-shirts, and practicing new drills. It was not only fun learning, but totally worth the exhaustion that followed! Who knew sprint workouts were so hard?!?!
Alright Creekers—time to share your thoughts on today’s 5@5 swim! Or were most of you unintentionally too busy today to make it to practice? Did you love it or hate it? 🏊🏻♀️🏊💪💪💪🥇🏅
Who from the 5:30 am practice crew is missing their 2-dot Finis paddle? Do you possibly have a 3-dot paddle instead? It appears as though an accidental swap took place about 3 weeks ago. Let us know! 😁👍🏅🥇🏊🏻♀️🏊
No practice tomorrow (Saturday)!!! Come swim with us at the Splash and Dash Sprint Pentathlon instead!!!
The time has come. We are switching back to short course. Curious about your opinions on short course vs. long course—please share! Who is excited about twice as many walls/turns? Or are you dreading the interruption of a wall? Did you enjoy our long course training and can’t hardly wait until we switch back? Or were you counting down until this day came? 😁🏊🏻♀️🏊
Set your alarm clocks! Tomorrow morning is the super blue blood moon and the best viewing time is between 5am and 6am! It’s been more than 150 years since the last one, and that’s a good enough reason to make it to the 5:30 am practice tomorrow! See you in the pool 🏊🏻♀️🏊
We now have 18 swimmers registered for the USF meet on Saturday! There’s still time to register—the deadline is February 1st—come join us! Carpools have started forming, so let us know if you want in one.
Annual team meeting on SATURDAY January 27th AFTER an 8:00 a.m. practice!!! Who’s going? And more importantly, who’s bringing the mimosas/bloody marys?! Just kidding (are we?) Light breakfast and coffee will be on hand, but most importantly, your teammates will be there! Come hang out with us 😁
Update: We have 13 swimmers registered! Keep ‘em coming! Registration closes February 1st at 11:59 p.m.
We already have 12 swimmers registered for the USF meet on February 3rd! Let’s see how many more we can get there—time to represent! We have swimmers racing from age 23 to age 87, and if you haven’t witnessed Ann Hirsch race yet, you’ve been missing out. What an inspiration! Here’s a link so you can come join us. And please let us know if you want to carpool!
Well, another popular swimmer fashion statement has been Uggs. In case you haven’t already heard, they’ve taken it to the next level with thigh-high Uggs (for men). What are your thoughts on this? Are any of our male swimmers ready to jump in on this?
