2015 marks our 22nd year swimming at the YMCA Aquatic Center. Last year was a great year with multiple new team records and great swims by everyone. The team schedule is now posted for the 2015 season (click on the 2015 schedule link in the right hand side bar). As always this schedule is subject to change. We are looking forward to seeing everyone on June 2nd for our first practice of the season. I want to congratulate all of our year round swimmers that have been training with Coach Larry Peck. You are coming into the season strong and in shape so it should be a great year for you all. A special congratulations to Jesse and Ian who have been setting the water on fire this summer. Jesse set two American records in the Can Am Para-swimming Championships and Ian is a USMS Relay All-American! Strong work guys, and moms.
Also if you are looking for something fun to do on Saturday May 9th The Orange County Historical Society is proclaiming “Lucky’s Lake Swim” as a historic Central Florida event. We will be having a pancake breakfast and swim 7:45 am (you don’t have to swim to enjoy the breakfast). We are also trying to set a record for most swimmers doing the lake swim, which is 242. We would love to have some of our athletes participate but you will need to speak with coach Larry to see if you are capable and whether you will need a chaperone during the swim. We will help you find a chaperone if Coach Larry says you are ready for the swim. If you have questions ask Coach Larry as Coach Lucky will be out of town on a medical mission trip to the Dominican Republic the week before the swim.
Best, Coach Lucky
