Greenville Splash March Madness Fitness Challenge

March Madness was an epic success with over 50 swimmers participating throughout the month. It was really fun to see our swimmers get excited about racing different events and challenging themselves to try something new and get out of their comfort zone. Our youngest swimmer to do the challenge was 18 years old and our oldest person was 82! We love how some really kicked into high gear with racing the events and even more proud of our newbies that had never swum these events before! And how could we forget our triathletes that swam all these crazy events. Great job to all our Greenville Splashers!

Make sure to pick up your prize from Coach Leslie at workouts in the next two weeks.

Let's Swim Greenville!

The March Madness Fitness Challenge was so much fun. We were super excited to see so many of our swimmers participating! Make sure to pick up your prize in the next two weeks at the pool.

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. During the winter months, swim supplies are in the back of the shop, just ask. Show your bag tag and tell them you are with Greenville Splash to receive a 20% discount off swimwear and swim equipment.

During these difficult times of the pandemic we want you to know that Greenville Splash is your extended family. Please reach out to your teammates and coaches if you need anything. We care about you! Keep coming to swim to help with fitness, anxiety and mental health. Hopefully the vaccines are getting us back to more togetherness in the near future!
