Dear Masters Swimmers,
You will notice that we have changed the pool to the 25 yard dimension, which affords us the use of 19 lanes. We made the change on Monday, and it was a good day to do it. The Jenks Trojan Aquatic Center Competition Pool is a multi-use facility, shared among three competitive programs. The Jenks High School team, the Jenks Trojan Swim Club and the Masters team all use the facility, and there is significant overlap, especially during the evening swim time. Therefore, we needed to accommodate the requirements of the other two programs. We will continue to use the 25 yard courses through the Fall and Winter, though we will look to create a few long course opportunities during this time. Any conversion, however, requires lots of coordination and willing workers, so we me see few changes in the coming months.
Please be sure you have your USMS registration completed. You must have your registration to participate in practices.
During ALL practices, Masters Swimmers must use the refurbished locker rooms near the 25m pool.
If you want the use of a locker, let me know, and I will furnish you with a combination.
Congratulations to everyone who competed this past weekend, in triathlons or at the Tallchief event!
Also, we will be scheduling a time this fall to have our timing system manufacturer, Daktronics, provide us with a training session. I’d like to invite Masters swimmers to volunteer at meets this year to help run our timing.
See you at the pool!
