Special Note from Coach Leslie

I just cannot begin to express my gratitude for having the best team ever! Our team did such an amazing job hosting the Greenville Splash Long Course Meters Invitational! Thank you so much to all of our swimmers and volunteers that made it happen. It truly takes a village to organize and run a swim meet. We had over 45 swimmers entered in the meet and another 30 that came out to volunteer! This is a team record! There were so many memorable moments in this swim meet so take your time to look at all the pictures and videos, they truly say it all. I loved watching all the team camaraderie, racing and smiles everywhere.

I want to make sure I thank everyone that showed up with their team t-shirt in order to take our team picture. I know I cut your warm up a little short, but ya'll came through for me. The team picture means so much to me. I will treasure this day for many years to come.

Please continue to thank our team sponsors by buying their products! Come visit Alpine Ski to pick up a Dolfin swim suit and / or swim equipment. Show your bag tag and tell them you are with Greenville Splash to receive a 20% discount off swimwear and swim equipment. We are also excited to be working with Synergy Wetsuits. Click here to receive a discount code for Synergy.

We are in the process of hiring a few more Masters Swim Coaches. So hang in there, we hope to have all the workouts covered again very soon.

Send Leslie results and pictures of your events for our next newsletter. Feel free to email Coach Leslie at or give me a call if you need any help with anything: 864-283-1328.
