Special Note from Coach Leslie

We are super excited to be back to our group open water swims at Lake Jocassee. We had a great turnout for our first group swim on May 24. The water was a little brisk at first, but it was pretty comfortable once you started swimming. Some swimmers that started off with wetsuits even took them off. So I know during our next swims, the water will be the perfect temperature. We would love to have you try open water if you have never done it before. We swim in groups of similar ability levels and stop to rest every 10-15 minutes.

Greenville Splash hosts the Upstate Splash Charity Open Water Swim on Sept. 18, 2021. We would love to have you join us as a swimmer, volunteer, or sponsor. The Upstate Splash Charity is an all volunteer charity. All of our proceeds are given back to the community to provide swim lessons for children that are in need. If you are planning on swimming in this year's event make sure to register soon! Our event fills up every year and we want our Greenville Splash swimmers to be able to enter. Right now there are only 60 spots left.

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.

Send us pictures in your new Greenville Splash swag. 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.
