Dad’s Club swimmers of all ages participated in our two annual marathons. Our swim start lessons held their mini marathon/Halloween party on Friday Oct. 25th and our competitive swim team held it the following Saturday. 

The Dad's Club Swim Start Mini Marathon and Halloween Party was a great success. Ages 2-10 participated and everyone had a scary great time. There was food swimming and fun. 

Using the width of our indoor pool:
  • 2-3 year olds did 6 laps kicking and 6 times jumping into the pool and swimming back to the wall. 
  • 4 year olds did 6 laps kicking, 4 laps freestyle and 2 laps backstroke. 
  • 5-10 year olds did 10 laps kicking, 10 laps freestyle and 5 laps backstroke. 
Everyone completed their mini marathon tasks and spent the rest of the evening eating hot dogs and playing games in the pool.

Over 200 swimmers participated on Saturday’s swim team marathon. The pool was packed full of hardworking swimmers from 7:30-11:30AM. The Marathon was held in the outdoor 50 meter pool.
