2015 April Open hosted by The Woodlands

We had a great time and learned a lot at the first meet of the season. The meet was held at the Conroe Natatorium from April 24th-26th. The coaching staff was focused on how our kids are swimming at this meet more than how fast we are swimming. We all have been working on stroke technique and skills to set us up to be more successful as the season moves forward. Even though overall time was not out focus there were a lot of best times achieved and as a coaching staff we are very happy with how our kids swam. Our swimmers did a great job of representing Dads Club in and out of the water.

We would like to thank all of the parents that volunteered over the weekend. The coaching staff appreciates your contribution to the team.
