Hello MAST Families, W/U #10 / 2023-1105 SWIM-A-THON - Huge thanks to everyone who participated in the Swim-A-Thon this past Saturday. Many of our swimmers accomplished things that they may not have been aware they could do. Many of our swimmers were glowing with pride when they reported the number of lengths of the pool they swum. Big challenges can bring out the best in people and that was certainly the case on Saturday. Maybe a bit of a stretch to compare the MAST swimmers efforts in the Swim-A-Thon to...

Hello MAST Families, W/U #9 / 2023-1029 Three major items for this update SWIM-A-THON – Saturday, November 4 is the day for the MAST Swim-A-Thon. The Swim-A-Thon is a major fundraising program used by USASwimming swim teams across the nation to supplement the programs that clubs offer. We are hoping for a very enthusiastic effort from all families and their swimmers this year. The challenge for the younger swimmers will be to see how far they can swim: There are rumors of some of our 10 & unders attempting to...

Hello MAST Families, As much as we would love to set a practice schedule at the beginning of the year and have it be something our member could depend on, we are not able to do that. Our practice schedule is subject to other scheduling that taks place in the pool and - sometimes outside the pool. Whenever there is an opportunity to move practices earlier in the evening, we will accept those changes. It is hoped that these changes will not cause too many logistical challenges for our valued...

Hello MAST Families, W/U #7 / 2023-10015 MONDAY PRACTICE TIME CHANGE: Please be reminded of the change in practice times for Monday, October 16. It is a goal to have the most consistent practice times possible, but we also will take advantage to any high school practice schedules that arise if it means we can either get more pool time or we can start practices earlier in the evening. Tomorrow (Monday, October 16) is one of those opportunities due to a last-minute water polo practice cancellation. I apologize for any...

Hello MAST Families, #4 / 2023-0924 The first two weeks have been a nice gradual build-up into the start of the season, and we are happy to see that attendance has been strong. It is hoped that your swimmers are enjoying getting to know the new coaches and happy to be back in the pool. Swimming is a fitness and special skill-based sport and takes a little longer then pickleball to learn the basics. Humans are meant to be air-breathing, vertical, gravity resistant animals so the adjustment to a breath-limited,...
