THE BEAR BULLETIN 26 MAY 2014
Good job this
Saturday, Bears!

We were missing a lot of our
team members, but we still
had a lot of great swims,
best times, and even five
pool records!

This week, we will still be
working on our stroke
technique, but we will also
be adding in some more
yardage. It's going to be a
great week to get ready for
our meet against Trailwood
on Saturday!

Registration for Summer
Champs is coming very
soon, so if you want to swim
a specific event to qualify,
make sure you write it in the
comments box when
committing for the meet. See
you at the pool!
