Greenville Splash Masters

Soup Can Swimming Challenge

It's Time for a Greenville Splash April Swim Challenge!

I know we are going crazy being out of the water right now, but this will be a super fun way to keep in touch with swimming! I want to introduce you to Soup Can Swimming! For the month of April try to do three soup can swim workouts per week. For all those that participate you will get a prize! And of course our grand winner will receive a huge prize!

The fine print: Log your soup can workouts. You must email or message pictures of yourself doing the workouts to Coach Leslie during the month of April. Send me your total number of workouts on April 30th! To submit entries send an email to:

When I was a high school swim coach, I would have my swimmers do workouts similar to this on rainy days. And then I saw one of my swim friends, Michael Collins from California post these swim can workouts on their team facebook page and youtube. I started doing these workouts this week, and I love it! I know you will too! Vary your workouts by using different size cans! Our older swimmers can use smaller cans and our younger more experienced swimmers can break out commercial size cans!

Greenville Splash is a family! Please reach out to your teammates and lane mates. Check in with others to see how they are feeling and also to provide support for staying fit in other ways. I am truly missing everyone so much! Let me know if there is anything I can do for you during this time of being out of the water. I love all of you. The hardest part of being in quarantine is missing the feeling of the water and the friendships that have formed through out the years of Greenville Splash Masters Swimming. Please stay in touch...I would love to receive phone calls, messages, or emails.
