Swim meets are fun!!
A couple of months ago LYNX ran an intra club meet to get swimmers of all abilities out to swim events ranging from 25 to 200m. Participants included people who had just learned how to swim in the last year as well as people who have swam competitively most of their lives. The meet was run like a Master’s Swim meet with a warm-up, planned list of events, timers, starters and relays.
Participants were slotted into heats where they would swim with others of similar ability. Some people dove off the blocks, some dove off the side and starting in the water was an option as well. Participants could swim only freestyle events or enter other stroke events as well.
While people were swimming their events, the rest of the club cheered and supported on deck while they awaited their next event.
Feedback was that the 90 minute meet was lots of fun and that we should do it again! The next one will be on Saturday April 21st from 5:00-6:30pm. The same format will be followed including food and drink afterwards for those who can make it.
