We are excited to welcome back Coach Mike for a special clinic day at Steveston Pool. He will be working with our TTG, Juniors, Intermediates, and Seniors. Parents are welcome to come watch, and club members with experience as stroke and turn officials will be on hand to answer questions about swimming rules and DQ’s.
