Huskies Announce Swimming With The Dawgs Clinic
May 7, 2003
SEATTLE- The Washington swimming team begins its 'Swimming With The Dawgs' clinics beginning May 10. The 'Swimming With The Dawgs' clinics were developed during the 2000 UW swim season by Head Coach Mickey Wender, the UW Swim Team, and the UW Swimming Board of Directors (Dawgfish) as a way to educate age group swimmers (age 9-14) from local PNS teams about the opportunities of continuing their swimming career after their high school and club careers have ended.
Each clinic held at the Hec Ed Pavilion Pool on the University of Washington campus, is free of charge to the participating clubs, and consists of three (3) teams - no more then 20 age group swimmers per team - and no more then 60 swimmers per clinic. Each participating child also receives a workout cap for attending the clinic.
Upon arrival at Hec Ed, the swimmers are treated to a short inspiration speech by Mickey as well as several team captains and nationally ranked UW Swimmers. Following the motivational introduction, 60 swimmers from the three (3) clubs get a chance to experience the legacy of a workout in Husky Pool and become a Husky for a day, as they go through a short workout led by Mickey, the Husky Swimmers, and some of their own club coaches.
All PNS teams are invited to participate in the Swimming w/ the Dawgs clinic. If you or your team is interested in inquiring about the next available session, contact Cam Gravrock at firstname.lastname@example.org (or 206-328-2693) to sign up for a clinic or to be placed on the waiting list for a future date.
