We hope you enjoyed this wonderful weather over the weekend and the excitement that is building in our kids with only a few more weeks of school left. It's hard to believe we are so close to summer again! We have a few items we wanted to make sure you knew about as we prepare for summer to make sure we are best able to serve you first before the summer rush!
Two Week Summer Blitz classes are open and beginning to get filled. This is one of our most popular classes for the summer as it condenses classes into two weeks with one 30 minute group lesson every day, Monday-Friday for two weeks, 10 lessons in all. This allows the students to make the most progress in the shortest amount of time.
We are having a 25% off sale on many of our swim suits in the "Pro Shop" (otherwise known as lobby) for the entire month of May. We price our suits at a competitive price to begin with as a way to serve you, our families, and we have recently ordered even more stock to have plenty of boys and girls suits and goggles.
New class times offered beginning in June for the summer break. We have many morning times open so call our front desk to check times!
Have a wonderful day and month of May!
Our year round competitive program, Bakersfield Swim Club, is completing its first full year this next month after a few year hiatus. We have placed 11 brand new qualifiers for the Jr. Olympics to be held in Clovis in another week. Those 11 swimmers have come right out of our learn to swim program, graduating the jellyfish class, enjoying our summer recreation team and onto the club team. We practice at Seven Oaks Country Club and are more than happy to discuss whether or not this might be a good fit for your child. Check out our website at bakersfieldswimclub.com and email any questions through the link on that site.
Sunday, August 7th 12:30-4:30, Garces High School, $149
Larsen Jensen - Shafter native, current American Record Holder, 2 tours as a Navy Seal, and new father this month - has just launched his brand new clinic company with a couple of fellow Olympians and he wanted his hometown to be the first to experience it! Having won a silver medal in the 2004 Olympics in the 1500m freestyle and a bronze medal in the 2008 Olympics in the 400m freestyle, Larsen knows what it takes to go the distance. He became known in the swim world for his intense work ethic, focus, and mental toughness. At the clinic he will highlight the skills necessary for elite physical and mental performance while providing hands-on swim technique instruction.
Don't miss a chance for your child to have fun and become inspired to reach their swim potential. The cost is $149 and includes your ticket to Go for the Gold event later that night. Please register for the clinic soon at www.projectstreamline.co/events to reserve your spot as the spacing will be limited.
Sunday, August 7th 5:30pm-end of Olympic Coverage, Fox Theater, $20
We have planned "Go for the Gold" at the Fox Theater on Sunday Night, August 7th featuring 8x Olympic Medalist Jason Lezak (4 Gold, 2 Silver, 2 bronze), 2x Olympic Medalist Larsen Jensen (1 Silver, 1 Bronze), and Gabe Woodward (1 Olympic Bronze medal). Instead of watching a movie on the Fox Theater's amazing big screen, we will be watching the Olympics LIVE! The Olympic medalists will be your personal commentators as Team USA swims that night, answering questions, signing autographs, taking pictures, and planting seeds in the children of Bakersfield that they too can have big dreams of representing the United States of America at the Olympic Games.
The cost is $20 per ticket and you can call or stop by our front desk to purchase them. We will announce it to the public next week and spacing is limited so get your ticket now!
