Bunch of crazy people
What an epic day! Early in the morning on Aug. 26th, a bunch of crazy people met in the Rec Center parking lot and went on a journey that would lead them to swim 1 mile in 6 lakes in 1 day. To top it all off, they did it before the Summer Party that evening.
Congratulations to all those who finished all 6 lakes! Wow!
So so much fun...
A great team throws a great party and this year was no exception! This year was Hawaiian-inspired luau complete with music and leis.
A huge thank you to Julie Keyes for party coordinating and decorating. How many swim teams have an official “party coordinator”? We sure love ours! Thank you Julie!
It is wonderful to meet the families of our Masters swimmers. We are so grateful to their support of each of our swimmers, allowing them the time to wake up early or stay late to get a workout in. What a great team of families we have!
Kids treasure hunt and treasure box is the best! It would not be possible without the kindness and support of the Wheeler family. Thank you Scott and Stacie for the cool prizes and amazing Krabby treasure chest!

Our own Russ Walter has generously offered to do some underwater filming! Come to practice this Saturday at 6am to have a good workout and some underwater filming done! Come and SEE what you are missing!
3 Reasons To Film your Swim
1. See weaknesses in your stroke.
This is the primary reason most seek out coaching and video analysis. If you can see something you are doing, your mind can begin to process the connection to what that feels like in the water. Many times, things feel ‘normal’ or even ‘good’ in the water but when it is caught on on video, you may begin to feel differently.
3. Catch opportunities for more POWER!
Ever feel like your arms are just spinning? Some times that because you just did 200 yards of pulling and now you are attempting to sprint without paddles. Other times and most often, we find ourselves inefficiently moving through the water because we are not paying attention to the all so important catch or power phase of our stroke.
When you can see yourself under the water, you will be able to see and analyze ( with your eyes at least) what you can do to create more power.
2. Become aware of YOUR body positioning.
I remember watching in the 1996 Olympics a then 14-year-old Amanda Beard racing breaststroke in in a way you have never imagined a body to move. She was so high above the water, almost appearing going vertical with every stroke.
I also remember going to the pool and attempting moving my body just like she did. I couldn’t do it. I just couldn’t move my body in the same way. I had a great coach that saw my struggle and explained to me that my body is just that, mine! She helped me custom-fit my breaststroke to me. It helped, a lot.
By being aware of your own position in the water and knowing your own body, you will be able to create more efficiency and power with every stroke.
We are not too fancy at the Rec Center with our GoPro, but with some good footage and analysis you will be off and swimming faster and better!
Join your fellow Krabs for a once-in-a-summer experience! Our *unofficial* Tour of Utah Lakes will be Saturday, August 26th! Come swim ONE MILE in SIX LAKES in ONE DAY and then cap it all off at the Rec Center for our Family Summer Party!
All the swimming you could ask for and more!
*Unofficial means there will be no liability insurance and this is not sponsored in any way by the Rec. This is at-your-own-risk swimming with your fellow friends from Masters.
You just don't know when it's coming...
If you came to practice Thursday or Friday of last week, you were in for a surprise! We held a Flash Mini Meet. A quick intra-squad style meet within practice. Some loved it, some had other words for it…but you all did great!
Here are the results of the meet:
Come and bring the whole crew! Our Summer Party will be held Saturday, Aug. 26th from 6-9pm at the Rec Center. We will have exclusive access to the pools from 7-9. We will have the Wibit up as well as a kids-only treasure hunt for real money and prizes!!! They will LOVE it!
Please plan on bringing a dessert or salad to share.
