Special Note from Coach Leslie

Greenville Splash is getting ready to host the Greenville Splash Long Course Meters Invitational! Thank you so much to all of our swimmers and volunteers that have signed up so far. It truly takes a village to organize and run a swim meet. We are super excited to show our guests a great time at the Greenville County Aquatic Complex. We are still needing a few timers, so if you have a few spare hours on Saturday June 18, swimmers from all over will be so appreciative.

We are so happy to have Coach Jean coach for us on a regular basis in the evenings and Coach Carolyn to coach in the early mornings at GCAC. Both Carolyn and Jean are amazing coaches. Let them know if you need anything.

Quote from Coach Jean:
"A big misconception is that you need to be motivated to get rolling. You don't. Research shows that MOTIVATION OFTEN FOLLOWS ACTION, not the other way around. You don't need to feel good to get going. You need to get going to give yourself a chance at feeling good.

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 need of Masters Swim Coaches. We would love for any swimmers to coach one workout per week. It's a very rewarding and enriching experience. Let Coach Leslie know if you are interested.

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.

Greenville Splash Team Swag is Here

Greenville Splash team swag is here. In case you didn't know, Coach Leslie is also a special education teacher. My students have started a school based business called Ramtastic Goods. This year they made the bag tags and towels and collated all the items for distribution. Pick your swag up at the pool, ask a coach to give it to you, if you haven't received yours yet.

Fun in and out of the water

Best wishes to Jenny and Dylan
