Swim Team Gears Up for Seventh Season
Memphis swimmers Stevi See (in water), Ian See (diving), and Stephen Terrill (on deck) compete with Kahoka swimmer Courtney Anderson on a mixed relay team during the 2011 season.
There will be an informational and sign-up meeting on Monday, May 14 at 7:00 PM at the Legion (swimming pool) Park in Memphis for anyone interested in joining the Memphis Swim Team. All school-age youth are invited to participate.
The Memphis Swim Team, a branch of the Can-Oka (Canton/Kahoka) Swim Team, is entering its seventh year. Parents and athletes alike will attest to the positive benefits of participating in organized swimming: great exercise, vast improvement in stroke technique, every child plays/competes in several events, and, most importantly, lots of fun. Because swimming is a life-time sport, enjoyed by people of all ages, skills learned by young swimmers will be used for the rest of their lives.
Due to the competitive nature of the league, participants should have enough skill and courage to swim the length of the pool without stopping to rest.
The team practices most weekday mornings at the pool. Times and dates for practices will be announced at the sign-up. For questions, contact coach Trinity Davis or another swim parent.
