The Greensboro City Swim Meet is in its third and final day today. This culminating summer swim meet is held at the Greensboro Aquatic Center on Gate City Boulevard. Every child who swam for a community team is eligible to compete. What an exciting experience to swim in this beautiful facility, to see your name up on the electronic board with your ranking and times upon completion of the event. The above photo features the warm-up lanes.
Below, you will see photo squares of some of the swimmers who earned medals in backstroke. You can get a feeling for the sense of camaraderie in the swim community. Most of the swimmers who medal swim year round and, while they may be on different teams in the summer, they could well be on the same team with their other swim club. Also below, you see the 2016 t-shirt design as well as two of the Friendly Frog coaches, poolside, cheering on their swimmers. It is pretty easy for the Friendly Frogs to identify their coaches. Look for the people with the frogs on their heads!
Attending the meet is free. Parking is $5 if you park in the Coliseum complex. However, if you are willing to walk, free parking can be found nearby. This is a great opportunity to see the GAC if you haven't been yet. You will be wowed by this great community resource as well as the great sportsmanship of the kids!
