Cal Aquatic Masters Spring Meet at Spieker
Sun Mar 24 – Cal Masters! Mark your calendars! We are looking forward to hosting our annual meet on Sunday March 24 under the leadership of our Meet Director Ben Swiggett. We anticipate that we’ll depend on support from many of our CALM swimmers and families and expect to see everyone compete in individual and/or relay events! Key volunteer posts from previous years will be contacted and a recruiting sign-up will be out shortly. More information from Ben soon!
Update US Masters 1-Hour ePostal
Jan 1 – Mar 8 – Many of our swimmers love the challenge of swimming as many laps as they can during regular practice times. To kick off 2010, the coaching staff looks forward to helping our Masters prepare for US Masters’ 1- Hour ePostal National Championships! We will schedule workouts so CALM swimmers may participate in the competition sometime during the Spring Semester Event Info
Our first practice timed swim for distance is coming up! Coaches will log your distance (you’ll need to count for yourselves for the practice swims), so you may monitor your progress. See you at practice!
Thu Jan 31 20-minute Swim for Distance at all workouts
