Practice in Aquatic Park

Meet our Swim Director, Kirk McKinney, who recently swam Lake Tahoe the long way (22 miles which is why we call ourselves LOCO.) Kirk will give us tips on how to swim in open water, and then we'll practice. After practice we'll review the experience and discuss ways to work on areas we want to improve. Come Early!! See you at the bleachers!

    If anyone is going to be out there soon. I left my glasses in the girls locker room. Can someone retrieve them for me?

      I think I left them on the bathroom counter. They are basic metal frames. the shape of the lens are oval. My vision is drastically different from one eye to the next. Thanks for looking out. I tried calling but no one answers.

    Yesterdays swim was a Hoot! Great views, tasty water, warm and great people. If your interested in conditioning at a local pool. Use the link provided by US Masters Swimming to find a pool and times.

    I also have a book recommendation for all levels of open water swimming. Lynn Cox is a member of South End and a World Class Swimmer. She just released this book and its a must read for all.

    Great swim practice! I was vary pleased to see everyone do so well. You'll discover that each time you go out you will be more comfortable, stronger, have better wind, and your stroke will improve. It's a learning process and everyone I saw at practice did well.

    We have only a few weeks left before the Big Show. Get in the water daily if you can.

    We can do this!!!
