Greenville Splash was awarded the Dixie Zone LCM Championships at the USMS Convention. So we will be hosting this event at Greenville County Aquatic Complex June 15-16, 2019. We received so many nice compliments at the convention from swimmers that love our meet. Make sure to save the date! Our meet planning committee met for a fun dinner. We would love to have more volunteers for the planning committee for 2019. Let us know, it's a great feeling of giving back to our fellow swimmers around the country.
