It's about time for another Smarty Pants Fitness Challenge, we need Team Leaders to volunteer for the 2K Relay that we are hosting on Tuesday, July 23rd for our 6am practice.
We have four lanes, so there will be four teams - each team will be tasked to swim a total of 2000 yards as part of the challenge.
This annual event is a fundraiser for the Swimming Saves Lives Foundation - and SilverPeak Performance is one of two teams in the SPMS region to benefit from this fundraising, as we received a grant this year to fund our Adult Learn to Swim program! Therefore, it's very important to us that all Team Leaders officially register for the challenge - and we'd LOVE for everyone who participates that day to register as well!
It's only $10 to participate and your registration fee benefits the SSLF - which means is benefits SPP! And you get a Fitness Challenge Swim Cap and some Smarty Pants treats! You can register for the challenge HERE. Once you register, forward your confirmation email to us and let us know if you want to be a Team Leader or just swim in the challenge that day.
There will be many more treats and incentives for this Fitness Challenge as the event grows closer - so register now and stay tuned!
Competition days are August 7-11, 2019
The competition pool will be open for warm-up on Tuesday, August 6, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m Pacific time. On competition days, the competition pool will be open from 6:00 a.m. until 7:20 a.m. and the warm-up pools will be available from 6:30 a.m. until the conclusion of the final event.
June 1 through June 10 is Try Masters Swimming Week, a FREE initiative where anyone ages 18 and up can try out the many benefits of swimming at one of our participating U.S. Masters Swimming clubs across the U.S. With a few simple steps, you could be swimming!
Find a club by filling out the digital Trial Membership Form. Simply stated, Gold Clubs are the best, so that should be your first pick.
Bring a copy of this completed form with you to your club of choice
Don’t forget your gear: cap, goggles, towel, water bottle, and sunscreen (if needed)
We even have cheeky excuse notes that you can download and use with your spouse or boss during Try Masters Swimming Week.
Nervous About Trying?
Don't be! USMS welcomes swimmers of all abilities. Whether you're looking to improve overall fitness, swim for fun, develop better technique, train for a triathlon, or just learning to swim for the first time, we've got you covered.
For additional peace of mind, brand-new swimmers can check out our Masters Swimming 101 article series, which has tips, a review of swimming jargon, and information on how to circle swim, read the clock, and more. Of course, always feel free to reach out prior to June 1 and talk with the coach of the program to get a better feel for that team’s atmosphere or contact our membership team at 941-256-USMS (8767) or firstname.lastname@example.org for help.
Current USMS Members
Now's the time to invite your buddies, neighbors, and BFFs to come swim with you for FREE on June 1-June 10.
Remember, you shouldn't be the only one in your office who smells like chlorine. Plus, your inner circle has already heard the stories about how much you love swimming, so let this be the show to your tell. You know it will be fun working out together -- just think of all that gossip you can get caught up on during the kick sets!
Get your year started right with the SmartyPants Vitamins USMS Fitness Series and the Winter Fitness Challenge, a 30-minute swim that takes place between Feb. 15-28.
The event is perfect for anyone who has set a New Year's resolution to be more active, anyone who likes a challenge, or anyone who wants to support the USMS Swimming Saves Lives Foundation. The Winter Fitness Challenge can be done in any manner desired: straight through, as a member of a relay, or even with fins.
If you need help preparing for your swim, we have six-week training plans for all types of swimmers.
