Giving Back: SwimMAC Serves the Community

2015 Shoeboxes for Soldiers
SwimMAC Carolina's age group competitive team has more than 800 members living all around the Charlotte area. When we pool our time & talents, we can have a big impact on the communities in which we live. Each year, the 24 different practice groups are asked to identify a project they'd like to take on to give back. Our parent volunteers provide a huge amount of support to make these project happen, and we are so grateful for their enthusiastic support.

Up to the challenge: IMX

The annual IMX Challenge meet give swimmers an opportunity to branch out into different (and sometimes more challenging) events. The goal is to encourage swimmers to be well-rounded, IM-driven (strong in all four strokes) athletes.  The 2015 IMX Challenge took place right after the New Year holiday on January 2nd.  A HUGE thanks to all of the officials and other volunteers for putting on a great event!
