Recruiting

Recruiting 101 and Swim Clinics 
As we gear up for the next season, we’d like to take a moment to talk about recruitment.  We do have our end of August Clinics scheduled to help us all recruit new members.  If you know anyone slightly interested in any kind of kids activity, invite them to come with you at the clinics and try us out.  When you bring a new prospective member, the clinic is free to you. We are offering the following clinics at $25 each or $100 for all 5:
•Tuesday, August 22 from 6:30-7:30, Freestyle
•Thursday, August 24 from 6:30-7:30, Backstroke
•Sunday, August 27 from 5:00-6:00, Breaststroke
•Tuesday, August 29 from 6:30-7:30, Butterfly
•Thursday, August 31 from 6:30-7:30, Starts and turns
These clinics will teach the drills and technique philosophy that we utilize in Silver and Scarlet groups.  If your swimmer struggles with our drills, this is a good refresher before we start the season.
