The Salida Recreation department recently formed a swim team called the Salida Hot Springs Aquatic Swim Team, or SHSAC Swim Team for short. The goal of the swim team is to make a collaborative effort in swimming 2,500 miles, the distance from the California coast to Hawaii. When we reach our goal we will be celebrating with a luau! On route of the goal may be a few seafood potlucks.
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. Any team member that contributes at least 25 miles by February 15th will be given a swim team t-shirt. All other team members will be able to purchase a t-shirt at cost.
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 tea, call 539-6738 or come on down to the pool.
