Sunday, January 19th, 2014:
Sunday, December 22nd @ East Providence Boys & Girls Club. Coach Trent will incorporate these events into SwimRI-Triton Swimming's Sunday 7:30am workout. The postal event is simple: kick 400 yards as fast as you can, then enter your time (if you want) via the event website. For those of you who have never attended a Triton workout, the drop-in fee is $5 and the Sunday theme practices are usually well-attended, spirited and a highlight of everyone's week.
Friday-Sunday, December 13th-15th @ Boston University and Saturday team dinner at Boston Beer Works (61 Brookline Avenue, opposite Fenway Park). SwimRI is the defending medium-size team champion. We focus on getting as many SwimRI swimmers as possible involved in relays and into the National Top 10 relay rankings -- relay team age classifications at meters meets are determined by the sum of the ages, not the youngest swimmer's age. All relays are submitted as deck entries at the meet. Unless you inform Frank otherwise at email@example.com, we will assume that everyone entered in the meet is available for relays on the day(s) you have entered individual events and that anyone swimming on Saturday is also attending the team dinner.
Saturday, November 23rd @ Providence College's Taylor Natatorium. Co-ed meet in 6-lane, 25-meter pool. High-school event order + other relays. Warm up: 3:00pm. Meet: 3:30 to ~6:00pm.
36 swimmer cap! RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. RSVP period closes November 18th @ 11:59pm. Captains Trent & Doug will determine team lineups. $20 per swimmer. USMS-NEM-SWMR membership required.

During 2013, RWU Coach Matt Emmert has actively supported masters swimming by hosting coached masters practices and events at RWU's beautiful (and previously unaccessible) 8-lane pool. Help us return the favor by attending the meet, the proceeds of which will help support the RWU college team's winter training trip.
Congrats to the SwimRI Selachii team of Donna Neuendorf, Sara DiNardo, Kaan Duru, Ryan Shipley and first-place finisher Trent Theroux on winning the inaugural Newport Sharkfest Rochambeau Cup team competition in convincing fashion.
