Coastal Carolina Invitational in Bolivia, NC

Team Road Trip

Our friends from North Carolina put on the funnest meet. The Coastal Carolina Masters Invitational on March 23 in Bolivia, NC did not disappoint. It was really fun for seasoned swimmers and newbies alike with events like the 500, 200's, 100's, and 50's, and of course 25's. The relays were 25's with swimmers from other teams mixed together, and the infamous floatie relay was a blast!! Our team had so much fun, we all plan to go back next year.

Make a Difference

Thank you so much to all of our swimmers that came out on Feb. 18 Greenville Splash Night to volunteer time at the State Age Group Championships. We had a fabulous turnout to help our younger swimmers. Your help was very much appreciated by Team Greenville.

We are beyond excited at the start our 2019 Adult Learn to Swim. Our team is full of swimmers that share their passion for swimming by teaching others to swim and be safe in the water. We are teaching 50 adults during the months of March and April.

Our next meet planning meeting is April 27th. We meet before Saturday workout to prepare for the Dixie Zone LCM Championships in June. It's a great feeling of giving back to our fellow swimmers around the country.
