While in the developmental stages of the sport, one thing we like to emphasize is personal improvement. We are always striving to be better than we were before, and this meet was no exception. Dad’s Club swimmers posted several best times, but special shout outs to Adler Toro and Violet Williamson for going 100% best times!

Our little guys did so well and the coaching staff is proud of their efforts this season. The future is bright at Dad’s Club!
