Swim Across America Olympian Clinic is this Sunday!

Good morning TSA reps,

On behalf of the Meredith Townes Mudpuppies, I just wanted to extend another invitation to our third annual Swim Across America cancer fundraiser honoring our first head coach, Brian Goldman. This year's event will be held this Sunday, July 10th, from 2:00-6:00 at the Triangle Aquatic Center in Cary. For your swimmers there are some fantastic activities planned! As always, we will have technique clinics led by some of the greatest names in swimming, where students will meet in small groups for instruction in each of the four swimming strokes, as well as water polo, and this year, open water swimming! Sue Walsh (UNC grad, Olympian 1980 backstroke)), Elaine (Breeden) Penrose (Stanford grad and still NCAA record-holder in the 200 fly, Beijing silver medalist in butterfly), and Tim Payne (5 time gold medalist in the Invictus Games) are just a few of the many headliners that will offer their time for this great cause. See the previous post on Tuesday Night Lights for additional clinic leaders.

For all of your swimmers who are looking to squeeze more out of their swims, meet with some of the worlds best swimmers and water polo players, and come away feeling like they've made a difference, please join us on Sunday, it is an event not to be missed! In fact, I've learned that the president of the national Swim-Across-America foundation has taken notice of our event, and will be joining us as well! There will be prizes for top fundraisers (including an autographed water polo ball from the captain (Tony Acevedo) of the US Water Polo team!) Here's the address for anyone looking for more information:

Note that you can swim as a team (join ours or create your own), or as an individual. Get your whole club out there!

Kind regards,
Steve Ross
