The Upstate Splash is a Smashing Success
Thank you to our hosts, Greenville Splash
Making Waves in Our Community
Greenville Splash swimmers are continuing to give back to our community by hosting the Upstate Splash Charity Open Water Swim at Lake Jocassee. Our second annual event was a huge success in so many ways. We had over 30 swimmers from our team that participated as volunteers and another 40 swimmers swam in our event. Thank you so much to all that came out and participated. We raised money to provide swim lessons for children in need. Lessons have already begun at Westside Aquatic Complex.
Check out the calendar section of the website or facebook for more information about our USMS club. We always welcome all swimmers to any of our workouts, events and socials. Join the fun!

Swim the Suck
Laudation to Casey Oliver, Stephanie Hance, Carolyn Moore and Leslie Scott for swimming 10 miles in the Tennessee River Gorge. It was a beautiful day but there was plenty to battle with strong winds, chop and a slack current. A special shout out to Casey and Steph for their first ever endurance swim! We could not have done it without our kayak support of Stephanie Booth, Tedd Garner, Leslie Dyke, and Steven Scott. And to Bob Mitchell and Steven Scott for kayaking all the practice swims!

Technique Tip By Coach Leslie
Make sure your arms take complete strokes. Fully extend in front by spearing the water and fully press past your hip. Keep your hand and arm out front as long as possible as the opposite arm is completing a stroke. Glide as the opposite arm completes the stroke and starts to recover. Pause out front. Catch the water and hold the water when you pull. Accelerate your hands and take long smooth strokes. Use your core to rotate fully.
Stroke count and DPS is different for everyone; it depends on height, weight, limb dimensions, and body shape. So no need to compare yourself to others. The goal is to decrease how many strokes it takes you to swim one length. The lower your count the more efficient you will be. So just keep counting!
