Spring into the Pool for spring class!

Posted by coachlisa on March 19, 2010

Just a reminder that the Women First Spring swim program will start again this Saturday March 20 at 8:30 am. Please arrive 10-15 minutes early for the start of a new class and new introductions.

Tomorrow’s classes will at Balcones Neighborhood Pool at 12012 Amherst Dr in Northwest Austin. For those new, it is a heated pool with full showers and change rooms available.

Coach Sara and Coach Sarah will both be on deck eagerly awaiting for your return.

Please welcome new mermaids (in pink) and a few vets from classes in the past:
Pam Spann
Alison Behringer
Sharon Behringer (mom to Alison, yeah for mother and daughter mermaids!)
Joan Conner
Shenoah Peck
Angela Creed
Tamara Cort
Kara Pittsford
Michelle Barton
Jean Hagood
Cile Spelce Elley

Again, like the winter session, we’ll offer a FREE FUTURE CLASS to the mermaid with 100% attendance (so if you’re only in for 6 classes, your attendance record is based on attending those 6 classes). Joyce Labaw was our winter winner.

Happy Spring swimming everyone,
Coach Lisa
