The American Cancer Society Save-a-Life Swim Program is returning this year during our regular practices on Tuesday, July 16. This is a fun practice as we ask the kids to swim as many laps as they can without stopping. They can use flippers and kickboards too!

  • Only swimmers who raise money for the Save-a-Life Swim Program should come to practice.
  • Swimmers can request donors to pledge per lap or make a flat donation. Ask your parents, older siblings, grandparents, neighbors, and friends to donate. WE ENCOURAGE PARENTS TO COME TO PRACTICE TO HELP COUNT YOUR SWIMMER'S LAPS IF ANYONE CHOOSE TO PLEDGE PER LAP. 
  • The Pledge Form is attached. You can download and print. There will be a few in a labeled folder in the top drawer of the filing cabinet soon. 
  • Online donations will be available, but I will need to get that to you perhaps tomorrow as the coordinator didn't set us up yet and I need to contact her 
  • Come during your normal practice time.
  • The team will provide snacks when swimmers are done swimming. There will be drawings for prizes too. 


Attached are the current League Qualifiers for League Championships on Saturday July 27 (Individual events session). Congrats to all these qualifiers!! The meet is being held at Manheim Community Pool in the morning.Swimmers have 4 more meets to qualify- Both upcoming dual meets, Manheim Fast and Furious (Sat July 13) and Divisional Championships being held July 20 at Adamstown. The RELAY session is held Friday July 26 in the evening. There are NO qualifying times. We may enter 2 relays in each relay event (free and medley relay). The medley relay begins with backstroke, then breaststroke, next is fly, and last is free. Anyone can swim in the relay session so if your swimmer is available, and interested in swimming, please mark them as available for the relay portion of the meet. This does not guarantee your swimmer in a relay, but it will give them a chance. Coach Barb will choose the relays based off of best times. If there are at least 8 swimmers interested, 2 relays will be entered. We need at least 4 to enter one relay. We love taking 2 relays, if we have enough swimmers available.
