The East Central Swim Team will be offering swimming lessons this summer to kids ages 4 and up. We may
take POTTY-TRAINED 3-year-olds depending on the child’s ability and available space. You do not have to
live in the area to take part in our swimming lessons. Each session will consist of eight, forty minute
classes all taught by Lifeguard Certified Instructors. All lessons will be $65 per child with a special $60 rate for
those who sign up for session 1. We will cap all lessons to 30 students so get registered quickly.
Age Group State was March 8-10 and Senior State was March 15-17. East Central Swim Team had a very strong showing at both meets. ECST was represented by 14 athletes competing in these meets. The age group meet saw everyone leave with best times include the 200 Medley Relay (Nick Weber, Frank Strotman, Luke Jackson, and Kaden Cummins) finishing in the top 20. Henry Strotman was 19th in 50 breast. Riley Reany ended up 13th in the 200 free. Nick Weber was the star of the show finishing with 3 podium finishes (3rd in 100 back, 5th in 100 free), including winning the state championship in the 50 freestyle setting a new state record. We’re proud of all the ECST Age Group swimmers.
