RAFAEL RACQUET CLUB meet this Saturday! This will be a quick meet (done well before noon, I imagine) that I would recommend for any novice/intermediate swimmer who would like to gain meet experience.

See you at the pool!, Coach Mike
Now that the Tunathon is less than 2 weeks away it is time to go into overdrive and make this happen – which is our most important fund raising drive of the year.
Without this important drive being successful we are compromised in what we are able to do. We want to rent pools in a way that helps our program maintain the quality we desire. We want to continue to use Bridge as our basis of our strength and conditioning and that is not cheap. The list goes on but it is safe to say that we need help to maintain our program the way we want to run it and this is a huge part of that goal.
This year as an incentive we are offering a very cool item. We have contracted with a company that will film the swimmers who raise $250 for our team. This film will be analyzed both underwater and above by the coaches and will be given to the swimmer. I have seen the final product and it is very cool so do not miss out!
Raise $500 and we will add a hydroflask water bottle…you will be a better swimmer due to the filming and hydrated at the same time…how cool is that!
Last year was the best Tunathon ever and the bar was set high. Let’s make this one just as successful
All for now!
