Top 10 “As You Go”
Did you know that you can track the Top 10 times throughout the season? Well, I didn’t, but here’s a link to do just that: https://www.usms.org/comp/meets/toptimes.php
Also, the tracking of the Top 10 for different lengths can be a bit confusing. Here’s a chart that helps explain it.
Meet Your Fellow Swimmers
Let’s meet two fellow Arkansas Masters swimmers:
Even though they live and train in the Joplin, Mo. area, they are part of the Arkansas Masters LMSC and we are thrilled to have them!
Grants for Coaches, Competitors, and Events
We recently added a section on our website to explain the details regarding grants for coaches (to attend coach certification courses), competitors (to attend Zone or National meets) and events (to help pay expenses for masters meets and events). You can read about the requirements and application process on the Arkansas Masters webpage – just click on the “Grants” tab.
State Records Broken in Little Rock
Several LCM State records were broken recently in Little Rock at the Masters Spring Splash on May 6th. Congratulations go out to Srdan Markovic, Rinaldo Sintjago, Doug Martin, and Calvin Schildknecht for their super fast times in the freestyle events. Check out the “Records” on our webpage, and be sure and communicate to me if you have set a record (especially at those out of state meets).
