Update to Spring Session Dates

Posted by coachlisa on March 23, 2012

Mermaids,

As you know we are starting our Spring Session tomorrow at West Austin Athletic Club at 1024 Patterson Road. We will have a few new comers, so please give them a warm welcome: Trina Johnson and Carol Arrington.

There will be a slight change in the schedule. Because the Cap 2k is on a Saturday, and we are encouraging as many of you to join in on it as possible, we will not have a session that day on May 5. So the program will stay as 8 Saturdays starting March 24 but skip May 5 and go through May 19.

Same time (9-10 am), same cost ($99), same great coaches (Rachel and Tate). We are close to full for the program starting tomorrow so if you’ve been sitting on the fence, send me an email right away to register officially for the class, and follow the payment instructions here. Please do not bring checks to the pool.

The coaches will continue to post updates and comments to our Facebook group. We appreciate everyone who has encouraged your friends and colleagues to consider the program too.

happy swimming,

Coach Lisa
