Hello, TMSC members!!
Enrollment is now available for our Saturday swim workouts at Jenks High School for the months of January & February. Please go to https://jenkscommunityed.com/index.asp --> Masters Swim to register. If you have any problems enrolling on line, please call the office, 299-4415.
Please note that registration is also available on the site for March, April & May. I suggest that you only enroll in January & February. We anticipate the existing HS pool to close at the end of February for some remodeling before the entire, new, aquatic center complex opens. The exact date of the grand opening is yet to be set. I'm almost positive we won't get to swim there in March, and maybe not April either. I'll keep you posted!
I do know that we won't be able to swim on Saturday, February 12 as there is an kids meet at the pool that weekend.
In the meantime, join us for fun group workouts on Saturdays in January & February. The workouts are friendly to all swimming levels, and freestyle is an accepted substitute if you aren't skilled at the other strokes. We have the pool from 8 to 10 am, but we are usually out of the water by 9:30 or so, just depends on the group & how soon we get going. We occasionally go out to breakfast afterwards for some dry land training!
Also mark your calendar for the one hour postal swim on January 22 at Jenks. For more info on the postal swim, go to http://www.usms.org/longdist/ldnats11/#postals and scroll down to "2011 Postal Swims". Do this event for fun, just to see how far you can swim in an hour. You don't have to officially enter the competition, but you can still participate. We will have 2 heats & take turns counting for each other, so be prepared to stay the full 2 hrs so that everyone who wants to swim gets to swim. Depending on the number of swimmers we have, we may be able to leave one lane open for those who just absolutely refuse to play! :) More info on our postal swim to come via email.
AGAIN....You MUST sign up through the Jenks Community Ed Department to swim on Saturdays and you MUST be a current 2011 USMS member. (go to http://www.usms.org/reg to renew) If you only want to come on Jan 22nd for the postal swim, I will collect $5 from you to cover your swim fee for that one day only.
Hope to see YOU in the pool at Jenks HS!
