The SHSAC Swim team is currently swimming from Hawaii to Fiji!
The Salida Recreation department formed a swim team called the Salida Hot Springs Aquatic Swim Team, or SHSAC Swim Team for short. Last year the swim team reached their goal of swimming 2,500 miles, the distance from the California coast to Hawaii. After reaching the goal, the team celebrated with a luau!
The team now has a new goal for 2015 – collectively swimming the distance from Hawaii to Fiji, a distance of over 3,000 miles. Log your laps now at the pool!
Anyone that can swim, paddleboard, dog paddle, etc. ¼ mile (equivalent to 8 laps or 16 lengths of the pool) is encouraged to join the team and log in miles.
For those participating in the Fitness Challenge, this is also an awesome way to rake up those points. To get more information about the Fitness Challenge or the SHSAC swim team, call 539-6738 or come on down to the pool.
