Good evening TSA reps!
As many of you know, each year for the past three, we, the Meredith Townes Mudpuppies, have partnered with the Swim-Across-America Foundation to host a swim-fundraiser to benefit cancer research. We do this to honor our first head coach, Dr. Brian Goldman, who lost his fight with cancer two years ago.

This year, the event will again be held at the Triangle Aquatic Center, where swimmers from all over Wake County will join us to partake in a one mile simulated open-water swim in the competition pool, a water polo clinic, and, always a fan-favorite, a series of stroke technique clinics led by swimming and water polo Olympians, National Master’s Champions, Champion Open Water Swimmers, and Division 1 swimming coaches. There will be time after the clinics to get autographs, talk with the coaches about swimming in college, and even take pictures with your favorite swimmers and their medals! This is a great event for summer leaguers, for year-round swimmers, and for prospective year-round swimmers.

The inaugural one mile swim was a hit last year, with almost 100 swimmers from age 8-80 participating, including a five time Invictus Games Gold medalist, Raleigh Area Masters’ swimmers, Summer league teams, and even relay teams! Head to the address below to register, and create your relay team today!
In keeping with Coach Brian’s original goals for this clinic, it will be held this year just prior to the start of the season. This is by design! This way, TSA swimmers can go into the season with some new skills and techniques that will serve them well for the entire season! Here are the particulars, and the website to register:
